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.
Directed by CGI demon Stephen Sommers (The Mummy, Van Helsing, G.I. Joe), and adapted from the Dean Koontz novella, we now have new stills for Odd Thomas, the troubled production starring Anton Yelchin, Addison Timlin, Willem Dafoe, Nico Tortorella, Patton Oswalt and Gugu Mbatha-Raw that’s been struggling to get released in the States.
“The story centers on a short-order cook named Odd Thomas (played by Anton Yelchin) who can commune with the dead, a secret only his girlfriend (Addison Timlin) and the local police (Willem Dafoe) chief know. The young man can also spot malevolent forces called bodachs, who feed on pain and portent imminent death. When Odd sees them in spades surrounding a stranger, he finds himself in a race against time to avert a catastrophe.“
