Honourable Mention: Carolina Grindhouse: Anderson's Own Horror Movie

Released in 2019 and directed by Kevin Woods and Rachel Mangan, this was a film shot and dedicated to the town of Anderson. Kevin Woods used locations and locals to create a portmanteau film. The wraparound ha a podcast broadcast interviewing a writer whose book is filled with creepy tales from the area – ranging from homicide to urban legend. The stories are then the short films that make up the bulk of the film.

What would you know, one of them is a vampire tale but it is so short and simplistic that I decided a honourable mention was the fairest way to feature it.

So, it is set in a downtown bar, it's closing time and the bouncers are encouraging the drinkers to finish up and get going. A group of people enter, one of them knocking the bouncer for six and then they attack the patrons. And that’s about it, no muss, no fuss – just a slaughter. I wish there were more to this but there isn’t and it’s fairly blink and it’s over. So, a fleeting visitation of vampires in a low budget film.
