The Dead And SudBuried Horrorthon began life way back in 2016 in darkest Suffolk in the small market town of Sudbury as a celebration of classic horror movies. Over just one day, seven such classics were thrown back on the big screen in the intimate venue of The Quay Theatre. Taking place in a town without an actual cinema to fulfill our dream to see these movies on a big screen, the first Horrorthon was planned around our birthday so just in case it failed to bring enough horror fans obsessed enough to sit and watch non-stop horror all day long, the event could be written off as a present to ourselves! Fortunately, a small but perfectly formed crowd came, enjoyed and endured over 13 hours of wonderful motion pictures like The Exorcist, An American Werewolf In London, The Thing and Evil Dead 2.

The Horrorthon didn’t lose quite enough money in its first year, so returned in 2017 bombarding a bigger crowd with such classics as Dawn Of The Dead, A Nightmare On Elm Street, The Omen and classic horror trailers between movies.

In 2018, we jumped six months to move to a more fitting and more permanent Halloween weekend building on our established Horrorthon crowd/family and adding magazine and blu-ray giveaways. Last year, 2019 was our biggest year to date with an even bigger crowd, more giveaways and discounts from local businesses for food and hotels.

We believe that movies should be seen on a big screen with big sound and with a crowd to be truly enjoyed which is the real reason the Horrorthon keeps coming back every year! As we approach our fifth year, it's become clear that our horror fanatic crowd is hungry for not just more classic horror but they want new horror too which is why we want to grow the Horrorthon in 2020 to a fully fledged two day horror film festival. We want to continue to screen rarely seen, classic horror movies alongside brand new feature length movies and horror shorts to a new audience and become a major horror event for Suffolk and Essex.

So for 2020, we're aiming bigger and better, resurrecting ourselves and aiming to screen at least 13 horror shorts before each movie over two days, selected to complement the film it precedes, 6 brand new independent horror features and of course our trademark 7 classic horror movies.

Dead And SudBuried Reborn : Horrorthon V takes place on Saturday 24th and Sunday 25th October 2020 at the amazing Quay Theatre, Quay Lane, Sudbury, Suffolk. So be afraid, be very afraid and join us for the Horrorthon!
