The premium service from The Independent Horror Society that helps genre filmmakers, writers, cast and crew of all levels take their projects to new heights.

IHS Pro is designed to be the ultimate creative solution to not only help you find co-conspirators to work and collaborate with

…but to also help you navigate some of the more complex and time-consuming areas of the industry, with a range of perks and tools.

Read on to see what’s waiting for you inside, and to see how you can unlock everything for as little as 76p a week!

What Do I Get As An IHS Pro Member?

First and foremost, you get access to our special IHS Pro members-only website, which will be where you find all of the your main perks of membership:

Access To The Private IHS Pro Discord Server

As soon as you join IHS Pro, you’ll be able to access our private Discord area, which is the ‘beating heart’ of our service.

Once you’re inside, you’ll be able to meet and talk to your fellow Pros in real time, share news about what you’re working on, and find other people to collaborate with too.

So, if you’re looking for assistance in bringing your film idea or script to life – or if you’re looking to find a project to get involved with, then this is the place to make it happen.

Search The IHS Directory

The IHS Directory is our brand new resource for directors, producers, writers and any other industry professionals who are seeking talented individuals across the entire creative spectrum to help bring their terrifying visions to life.

We firmly believe in the power of collaboration and recognise that the horror genre thrives when diverse voices and talents come together. By uniting everyone with a shared love for horror, we can foster an environment where new connections are formed, skills are shared, and exciting opportunities arise.

Inside the IHS Directory you’ll find the names, contact details and portfolio of a growing number of cast, crew and other creatives all open to collaborate and help you with your projects. It’s 100% free for anyone to list themselves inside it, but only members of IHS Pro get to actively search through the listings.

The Pro Writers’ Room

Our Pro Writers’ Room is here to help the writers in our ranks get feedback on their work from their fellow members and the IHS Pro team.

Members can share their work within our secure channels, using an easy to use process that keeps their work as protected as possible.

Then, each month we’ll be hosting a private live video chat where our close-knit group can constructively critique what has been submitted, whilst also being able to brainstorm new ideas.

IHS Pro Partners

This is where you can link up with our preferred list of industry partners, saving you time, effort and money when shopping around for the best cover, kit package, or whatever else you might need to develop your project — we’ve already done the hard work for you!

What’s more, we’ve arranged some exclusive special offers and packages too: including being able to get up to £175 off access to the highly prestigious Stan Winston School Of Character Arts, and use the legendary casting platform Backstage to hunt for key talent for free!

Plus Even More Exclusive Perks!

In addition to everything above, you’ll also gain instant access to our other benefits of membership, including:

  • Priority & Discounted Access To IHS Events: Not only will you get an invitation to our top-secret IHS Pro-member-only socials, you’ll also get priority tickets (along with some heavy discounts) to all of our IHS events. This ensures you don’t miss out on any of our mixers, parties or screenings, ALL of which regularly sell out quickly! What’s more, the discounts on offer more than make up for the monthly membership fee!
  • Amplify Your Reach: Promote your horror project, crowdfunding campaign, or seek assistance by securing a free advertising slot within our member newsletters. With over 1,200 horror fans and professionals in our community, your message will reach the right audience.
  • Access to The Pro Location Tool: containing a hand-picked selection of residential and studio locations from all over the country, that are all listed on property rental websites, and pre-qualified for use by film crews. Each has its key features highlighted (and easily searchable), making it easy for filmmakers to find exactly what they’re looking for. And the best part? They are all listed at regular holiday rental prices — so no hugely-inflated agency day rates to contend with. Just fantastic locations at a fair fee.
  • Access to the full back catalogue of Master Q&A’s: Our online interviews with top industry experts from a wide range of specialities, including Greg Day, Film PR specialist, James Norrie, Executive Producer and Partner at AMP International, Simon Hassard, Location Scout & Manager, and NINE more!
  • Our online video course: How To Write A Screenplay. This detailed 3-part recorded tutorial explores a proven method for developing concepts into production-ready scripts, and is written, developed and presented by Paul Harker, a lecturer in Screenwriting at the University of Leeds and a screenwriting mentor at the Oakwood Film Academy
  • A Weekly Industry News Digest: It can be tricky keeping up with everything that’s happening in the industry. That’s why every Saturday morning, we’ll send you a shortlist of the most important news stories that have occurred over the past week, in a quick, easy-to-digest email.

What Our Members Have Said About Us…

“As a composer who’s been increasingly drawn to the Horror genre(s), IHS Pro has been a boon. I quickly expanded my network to the extent I received a commission within a few months. The screen-writing workshops, shooting and production advice really give you an insight into the life-cycle of film making. Attending festivals with like-minded colleagues and friends makes the events even more memorable!”

– Rob W. Composer, London.

“IHS Pro has definitely helped me to develop my career as a filmmaker, whilst also connecting me with likeminded people and been a way for me to make new friends. It’s been great to be part of such a lovely community of horror fans and filmmakers who will go out of their way to help and support each other.”

– J.B. Writer/Director, Manchester.

“IHS Pro has been such a positive, welcoming, and useful community for me as a horror filmmaker. I’ve connected with collaborators directly through the platform, received in depth feedback on my scripts, made a film in 66 hours, and loved chatting all things horror over too many pints at the socials – all because of the IHS. Worth every penny.”

– Lucy F, Writer/Director, London.

“IHS Pro has connected me to the greatest creatives in Horror, from established talent to the undiscovered gems ready to break through. Its one big family elevating each-other and the easiest way to expand your creative network.”

– Craig T. CG Supervisor (Interstellar, Annihilation), Bournemouth.

“I wanted to find a community that shared my love for horror and attend a few events. But IHS ended up being so much more. I discovered a new passion for writing, with endless support and encouragement from all members, and made some great new friends along the way.”

– S.R. Writer/Director, London.
