The International Horror and Fantasy Film Week of La Costa del Sol is a film festival of the horror and
fantasy genre that is held annually. The first edition was held from September 11 to 16, 2000. On that occasion,
the winning film of the Golden Unicorn was The Ring, which was a blockbuster in our country. The edition
paid tribute to the British actress Caroline Muro, a fetish actress of horror films, with the screening of the
film ‘The howl of the devil’, directed by Paul Naschy, and a ‘tribute to ghosterrorific Cinema’ was made with
the screening of films by Narciso Ibáñez Serrador (La residencia, ¿Quién puede matar a un niño?), Jesús
Franco (Gritos en la noche, El Conde Drácula). To this day, editions keep being added, this year the XXII
edition of the Festival is celebrated. This year the short film section is reinvented, being coordinated by
Miguel Carrillo.
