To celebrate Exeter filmmaker and writer Ashley Thorpe being nominated for a Rondo Hatton Classic Horror Award, we thought we have a quick look at some of his work.
It’s no surprise to us in the D&CFilm office that he’s been nominated for a Rondo for his two-part article interviewing Hammer legend Peter Sasdy for Fangoria magazine (it’s in category 14 – vote now!).
Many moons ago, Ashley compiled his top five horror picks for D&CFilm.
But Ashley is best known for his film work, and he does seem to be making true his revival of British Horror claim (which he made on receipt of his Media Innovation Award for Independent Film).
Here are a few of the trailers to his movies. And remember, you can help bring a Rondo to the South West by voting for him!
