This year’s Film4 FrightFest festival opens with the world premiere of The Ford Brothers The Dead 2: India, pictured below, the first-ever International production of a zombie film shot in India.
“The film follows the story of India-based American engineer Nicholas Burton (JOSEPH MILLSON) in a race against time to reach his pregnant girlfriend Ishani Sharma (MEENU). Burton enlists the help of an orphan street kid Javed (ANAND GOYAL) and together they make a perilous 300 mile journey across deadly landscapes as a zombie apocalypse threatens to engulf the entire nation.”
Film4 FrightFest will close with the UK premiere of directors Aharon Keshales & Navot Papushado’s extraordinary revenge thriller Big Bad Wolves, pictured above.
“Soaked in twisted tension, fairytale myth and seat-edged suspense, the film follows the lives of three men on a collision course: following a series of brutal murders: the father of the latest victim now out for revenge, a vigilante police detective operating outside the law, and the main suspect in the killings – a religious studies teacher arrested and released due to a police blunder.”
All the directors and some cast members will be attending the festival.
