London's Leicester Square will once again be crawling with pallid-faced wild-eyed creatures of darkness this August as the UK's biggest and best horror festival returns to the rather wonderful Empire Cinema. And that's just the festival organisers, Paul McEvoy, Greg Day, Alan Jones and Ian Rattray.
FrightFest has quickly taken up dominance in the UK as the place to be for horror fans and filmmakers alike and this year promises to be more exciting than ever with a whoppping thirty-six films playing across two screens, nine of which are world premieres in addition to over twenty UK or European premieres!
Amongst the films screening are the much anticipated return of Victor Crowley in Adam Green's HATCHET 2 which opens the festival; the very appetising post-apcalyptic MONSTERS, African zombie rampage THE DEAD, the London based Vampire vs gangster flick DEAD CERT; ISLE OF DOGS, described as a gangland horror. Not to mention an ample selection of more exotic fare such as the sublimely silly ALIEN VS NINJA and the altogether darker toned and notoriously controversial A SERBIAN FILM.
