American The Bill Hicks Story is the true life story of the outlaw comic who tried to save the world. Bill Hicks died on Feb 26th 1994, and since then his reputation has only grown. Regularly voted one of the top comics of all time, this award winning documentary recounts his fascinating and ultimately uplifting life story, told by those that knew him best.

Considered the definitive film on Hicks’ life, it premiered at London Film Festival and SXSW, was 6th on the iTunes All Time Bestsellers chart, and the 2nd highest grossing documentary in UK cinemas that year, and was nominated for a Grierson award.

Horror News review

“I’m still in awe of Matt Harlock’s and Krent Able’s Deep Clean, after the success of another British horror short Salt, it’s easy to see that British Horror is absolutely smashing it this year. Deep Clean undoubtedly stole the show and my heart, I can’t wait to see more of this.”
Thanks to Bryony of Horror News who pulled this together from the Frightfest Halloween extravaganza.
