A horror film festival is not like your typical festival. For one thing, they present awards in categories you will not find anywhere else. For instance; FILTH just received the award for Goriest Short Film at the Something Wicked Film Festival. How does one respond to that? You have to have a sense of humour about these things. “Serious” film makers might be embarrassed to win such an award. I know a bit about horror and that FILTH was the goriest film at a festival that screened 62 horror shorts is something of an accomplishment. One I’m happy to accept and promote. I also know that FILTH will never be able to live up to that kind of label. There are all kinds of film violence and FILTH does not fall into the cringe inducing type of violence that one might find in a lot of exploitation cinema. A lot of blood spilled, don’t get me wrong, but no one is going to be covering their eyes in horror.
