Praise for Twisted Tales Events

'In the past few years Twisted Tales has become a major force in the promotion and appreciation of horror fiction. As well as putting on author readings and signings at bookshops it has expanded into organising larger events, bringing authors and critics together for discussions of the field. I've been involved in quite a few of both and have found them hugely enjoyable and stimulating - I believe the audiences did as well. May Twisted Tales continue to grow and prosper! If you love the field, support them! I do.' - Ramsey Campbell

‘Twisted Tales consistently produce well-organised events for writers and readers of horror. What really distinguishes Twisted Tales for me is the intelligent themes and investigations they pursue, and the high quality of the discussions they always stimulate. As an author I've been invited to three of their events and have been pleasantly startled, to near shocked, by the attendance levels - two out of three were even sold out. I salute anyone who contributes so much to the literary and cultural life of horror fiction.’- Adam Nevill

'Twisted Tales events are wonderful... a great way of promoting 21st century horror fiction. Supported by Waterstone's Liverpool One and really well organised, Twisted Tales brings together established names in the genre as well as new voices and of course readers. Looking forward to much more to come...' - Alison J. Littlewood

Nightmare Visions

We at Twisted Tales are passionate about promoting great horror across a variety of media. To complement the horror story readings we will be promoting the best in 21st century cinematic horror through the Nightmare Visions page.

Tomas Alfredson Let the Right One In (2008), Antti-Jussi Annila Sauna (2008), Darren Aronofsky Requiem for a Dream (2000), Jaume Balaguero and Paco Plaza [Rec] (2007), [Rec]2 (2009), Juan Antonio Bayona The Orphanage (2007), Bryan Bertino The Strangers (2008), Joon-ho Bong The Host (2006), Danny Boyle 28 Days Later (2002) and Sunshine (2007), Nacho Cerda The Abandoned (2006), Oxide Pang Chung and Danny Pang The Eye (2002), Frank Darabont The Mist (2007), Anthony DiBlasi Dread (2009), Kinji Fukasaku Battle Royale (2000), John Harrison Book of Blood (2009), Mary Harron American Psycho (2000), Mikael Hafstrom 1408 (2007), Ji-woon Kim A Tale of Two Sisters (2003), Ryuhei Kitamura Midnight Meat Train (2008), Pascal Laugier House of Voices (2004) and Martyrs (2008), Andrew Leman The Call of Cthulhu (2005), Takashi Miike Ichi the Killer (2001), Hideo Nakata Dark Water (2002), Philip Ridley Heartless (2010), David Slade Hard Candy (2005) and 30 Days of Night (2007), Christopher Smith Triangle (2009), Guillermo del Torro The Devil's Backbone (2001) and Pan's Labyrinth (2006), Lars von Trier's Antichrist (2009), James Wan Saw (2004)

This list will be expanded over time, as brilliant new horror films are released and older ones are discovered. Please make suggestions for inclusion below and we will endeavour to watch the films and add them if we agree. Soon we hope to add original reviews of some of the exceptional horror films from this century. We make no claims as to complete coverage- Twisted Tales is a vehicle for promoting great horror and so we have no interest in pointing out bad films. If a film isn't on the list and/or reviewed here it is because either a) we haven't seen it yet or b) because we think it fell short of what we wanted from a great horror film. By all means feel free to disagree with us in your comments,  as we hope to foster debate about and engagement with some of the incredible nightmare visions that are being produced by today's best directors and writers.
