Competing for nearly £10,000 of film-making prizes, the crew saw an incredible influx of entries after the competition became one of the biggest of its type to run worldwide.
Ben Franklin, producer and editor for the film company said: “Team Bloody Cuts would like to thank everyone who has sponsored, judged, contributed, blogged, donated and watched over the last few months, as running the competition would not have been possible without their support.
This has been an excellent experience and we were all hugely impressed, humbled and encouraged by the quality of the submissions, from over 280 filmmaking teams worldwide.”
The competition was being run online at www.BCHorrorChallenge.com and after months of waiting, they have finally revealed the winners.
The top film picked by the judging panel, which including huge names in the horror film industry like Joe Dante, Soska Sisters and Gale Anne Hurd, was “Play Time” by British filmmaker Ryan Thompson.
Ben said: “It’s a fantastically paced and very visceral piece that is excellently crafted and most importantly terrifying!”
