This morning we announced the 13th annual Film4 FrightFest line up that will unload from Thursday, August 23 to Monday, August 27. The UK’s leading event for horror fantasy fans will be back at the Empire Cinema in London’s Leicester Square to present 48 films in three screens. (Check out the festivals official website for ticket info.)
Part of the announcement, the Best of British horror fantasy gets its usual FF fanfare with their already announced opening film Paul Hyett’s The Seasoning House and closer, James Nunn and Ronnie Thompson’s Tower Block. Also showcased are Peter Strickland’s extraordinary Italian horror deconstruction Berberian Sound Studio, Jon Wright’s creature feature Grabbers, the living dead romp Cockneys vs. Zombies, the human experiment warning Guinea Pigs, the killer clown comedy Stitches, the cannibal serial killer chiller Sawney, the psycho cop thriller May I Kill U?, the gory allegory Before Dawn (above), the fear of The Inside and the frightening Community.
