Horror Channel FrightFest is back and in full swing. Now housed at the 12-screen Vue Cinema at Shepherd’s Bush, West London, the bank holiday celebration of horror runs until 29th August 2016.
Now in its 17th year, the world renowned genre film festival will present 62 new feature films, embracing sixteen countries and bringing together established filmmakers, British first-timers and emerging international visionaries from six continents.
Day 3 of Horror Channel FrightFest (Saturday) proved to be another packed 24 hours of horror mayhem.
The Rezort is a post-apocalyptic zombie outbreak film starring Dougray Scott, Jessica De Gouw, Martin McCann, Bentley Kalu and Jass Ahluwalia.
The European premiere of Abbatoir stars Joe Anderson, Jessica Lowndes, Michael Paré, Lin Shaye and Bryan Batt in a shocker about a strange man who has been buying up locations where awful tragedies have occurred.
The Master Cleanse stars The Big Bang Theory favourite Johnny Galecki along with Anjelica Houston, Oliver Platt, Anna Friel and Kevin J. O’Connor in a black-hearted satire that asks ‘can we kill our demons before they kill us?’
It’s the match-up you never knew you wanted when The Ring v The Grudge go at it in Sadako vs. Kayako. The film stars Mizuki Yamamoto, Aimi Satsukawa, Tina Tamashiro, Masanobu Ando and Misato Tanaka.
The European Premiere of Beyond The Gates stars Graham Skipper, Sara Malakul Lane, Brea Grant, Justin Welborn and Barbara Crampton in a 80’s inspired VCR board-game thriller.
