The Film4 FrightFest news is straight up out of control, so we’re going to squeeze the last batch of new images into a single news post. Inside you’ll find a super gory new look at Alex Chandon’s Inbred (trailer), whcih follows “a disparate group of young urban offenders and their care workers embark on a community service weekend in the strange, remote Yorkshire village of Mortlake, which prides on keeping itself to itself. A minor incident with some locals rapidly escalates into a blood-soaked, deliriously warped nightmare for all involved.”
The first image was also released for Sean Hogan’s British The Devil’s Business. “Two hit men, Pinner, a cynical veteran and the inexperienced Cully, are sent to murder an old associate of their underworld boss. Waiting for their mark to return home, Pinner attempts to pass the time by telling a strange story from his past, involving Valentina, a dancer he was once ordered to kill… But things are not all what they seem in their quarry’s house and the discovery of a make-shift black magic altar sends the uncomprehending duo into the shadowy darkness of their own tortured souls.”
Inside you’ll also find your first look at Neve Campbell in Cristian Solimen (star of Dario Argento’s Mother of Tears) thriller The Glass Man (trailer), which also stars Andy Nyman (Severance), James Cosmo (Braveheart), Don Warrington, Polly Furnival, Cristian Solimeno, Lorraine Burroughs, Simon Sherlock, Brett Allen, Gary Grant, Amanda Ray King, Luke Sullivan, Lauren Cuthbertson, and Jonathan Goddard. “Martin Pyrite has lost his job. But instead of telling his wife he continues his work routine and gets into enormous monetary difficulties. Then late one night a sinister debt collector bangs on his door with an offer – if Martin helps him carry out an important task he’ll wipe the financial slate clean. In accepting, Martin goes on a journey through his own private hell where he’s forced to confront his worst dreads in a mesmerizing vortex of soul-destroying madness.”
Lastly comes a doezen or so photos from Michael Steiner’s Sennentuntschi: Curse of the Alps (trailer), whcih can be seen by clicking the still below. “An Alpine legend tells the story of three lonely herdsmen who were so starved of female companionship they built the girl of their dreams from a broom, some straw and a few rags. Then the Devil took pity and made Sennentuntschi live and breathe… This fable informs the first ever shocker from Switzerland, a complex and twisted tale of past crimes, tragic love, ghostly encounters, horrendous murder, unexplained suicide and sexual enslavement. Continually surprising, brilliantly directed and superbly acted, this unusual and beguiling mystery chiller finally puts Switzerland on the genre map.”
