The UK’s premiere horror movie festival - The Film4 FrightFest - has announced the opening and closing night films, and we have the details…
Opening night: Paul Hyett’s claustrophobic, psychological horror, THE SEASONING HOUSE is set to open this year’s Film4 FrightFest. Starring Sean Pertwee, Kevin Howarth and Rosie Day, this hard-hitting exploration of war-time sexploitation, set in a Balkan brothel, marks special-effects guru Hyett’s directorial debut. Hyett and the cast will be attending the premiere on Thurs August 23.
To close: Film4 FrightFest hosts the world premiere of Lionsgate’s TOWER BLOCK. Directed by James Nunn and Ronnie Thompson, this is a stunning suspense shocker. Trapped on the top floor of their run down East End home, a disparate group of neighbours are being targeted by a mystery sniper. This taut gripper stars Sheridan Smith, Jack O’Connell and Russell Tovey. The directors and the cast will attend this fabulous finale to FrightFest the 13th.
If that’s wasn’t enough good news there’s more. FrightFest have announced the line-up will also include the UK premiere of Paco Plaza’s [REC]3 Génesis. Both Paco and his leading lady Leticia Dolera will be attending the screening, and if that doesn’t seal the deal, we don’t know what will?! Full details on the fests official site.
