13 frights set for Glasgow Film Festival
Kicking off with a special screening of THE FOREST with Games of Thrones star Natalie Dormer in attendance, and finishing in racy rock-fuelled style with Sean Byrne’s THE DEVIL’S CANDY, Film4 FrightFest returns to the Glasgow Film Festival with another stellar line-up to shock, chill and thrill. A record thirteen features will screen from 25-27 February, alongside a selection of scary shorts, guest director Q&A’s, and great give-aways.
Following Thursday’s UK Premiere of THE FOREST, Friday’s fearsome line-up includes THE HEXECUTIONERS, Jesse Thomas Cook’s love letter to the rural horror genre; Sonny Mallhi’s eerie, jittery and surprisingly moving ANGUISH; and the world premiere of the Stephen King adaptation, CELL, starring John Cusack and Samuel L Jackson. Plus, there’s THE MIND’S EYE, Joe Begos’ thrilling tribute to David Cronenberg and Brian De Palma; and Tyler MacIntyre’s PATCHWORK, a modern spin on Mary Shelley mythology, mixed with fun gore and a cheeky 1980’s vibe.
Saturday’s spine-tingling set contains the Scandinavian smash hit THE WAVE; chiller compendium SOUTHBOUND; and the martial arts extravaganza SPL2: A TIME FOR CONSEQUENCES. Next up is THE OTHER SIDE OF THE DOOR, directed by rising British talent Johannes Roberts; BASKIN, loaded with surreal chills, atmospheric dread, extreme gore and unsettling perversity; and the US remake of MARTYRS, from Jason Blum and helmed by the Goetz Brothers. Be prepared for an equally unsettling ride. To end this year’s carnival of carnage is the UK premiere of Sean Byrne’s creepy, brain-freezing THE DEVIL’S CANDY, an instant cult classic and one of the scariest ‘under the radar’ movies of the year.
