In 2023, I directed 'The Moor,' which premiered in the First Blood strand of FrightFest, a platform dedicated to debut feature films. It quickly gained recognition as one of the standout entries in its category. Total Film honoured the film with FrightFest's Best Scare award and nominated me for Best Director. My films have played at prestigious festivals such Fantasia, FrightFest, London Shorts, and Raindance.

Prior to 'The Moor,' my short film 'Oscar's Bell' achieved acclaim, sweeping Best Short Film accolades at Dead by Dawn, HollyShorts, and the British Horror Film Festival. It also earned a nomination for the Melies d'Argent Grand Prize.

My short films are featured on Gunpowder and Sky's horror platform ALTER and Short Of The Week.


The Guardian - "Director Chris Cronin masterfully maintains a needling ambiguity about the source of evil in this haunting tale of a father searching for his long-missing son."

Time Out -
"Cronin also employs some effective Blair Witch-inspired techniques, including documentary-style interviews and POV filming to draw us further into the story. But the score, sound design and pitch-perfect performances..."

Comingsoon.net - The Moor is an impressively atmospheric feature-length debut from Chris Cronin..."
