Upcoming: Film4 FrightFest 2010


Posted by Craig Grobler on Google+ On Monday, August 23, 2010

If you are still unfamiliar with FILM4 FRIGHTFEST it's time to come out from under that rock and embrace the UK's premiere fantasy and horror film festival.

Now in its eleventh year, each August thousands of genre fans gather together in the heart of London's West End at the prodigious Empire Cinema for five packed days of premieres, previews, personal appearances, signings and surprises.

FrightFest first hit the scene in August 2000 and right from the start the festival set out its stall with the World Premiere of Ed Gein and UK premieres of Scary Movie, Pitch Black and Audition. Then based at the world famous London grindhouse cinema The Prince Charles, the annual 4-day festival has grown to become, in the words of Time Out, “the premiere event of the year for horror fans”, in the process helping to launch the careers of directors Christopher Smith (Creep, Severance) and Simon Hunter (Mutant Chronicles) plus hosting many first UK screenings including Shaun of the Dead and Eli Roth’s Hostel.

We have been fortunate enought to attend events at Frightfest in previous years and will be going along this year which looks to be the biggest and best yet.

The schedule for this year's 5 day extravaganza is as follows:
