Film4 FrightFest 2013, returning for its 14th year, last week unveiled its biggest line-up in history. From Thurs August 22 to Monday August 26, the UK’s leading event for genre fans will be at the Empire Cinema in London’s Leicester Square to present 51 films on three screens. Empire 1 will house the main event while the Discovery strands will play in Empires 2 & 4. The new FrightFest Xtra strand, also in Screen 2, will allow fans to catch up with sold-out performances of the most popular attractions.
It was recently announced that Artsploitation Films acquired Wither for the U.S., which will be given full stateside releases by the new label based in Philadelphia.
The Swedish Wither, directed by Sonny Laguna and Tommy Wiklund, “Begins with a group of young friends who head off to a secluded cabin in the woods only to have their fun weekend turn to a bloody mess when they disturb the resting place of an evil creature.”
The movie has an incredible Evil Dead (Sam Raimi’s) vibe that you’re going to love. Check out some gruesome new stills!
