In the Spirit of Halloween, the Most Disturbing Films You've Seen...

27 October 2014 3:33 PM, PDT | ShadowAndAct | See recent ShadowAndAct news »

Getting into the spirit of Halloween, and inspire some conversation... first, watch the below video (you don't have to watch the entire thing; I think you'll get the gist of it within a matter of a few minutes), and then continue reading afterward. The above took place after a screening of horror film director Lucky McKee's 2011 film "The Woman," at the Sundance Film Festival that year, where it premiered. Clearly, the man was upset with what he saw of the film, and maybe rightfully so. I wasn't there, but I did eventually see "The Woman," and while I didn't storm out in protest the way he did, I can say that it's definitely disturbing »

All Cheerleaders Die

Peer pressure, high school sex wars and witchcraft are the ingredients in this spicy brew as a gang of cheerleaders go from pretty vacant to pretty dead. And seriously angry. Directors Lucky McKee (The Woman) and Chris Siverston chivvy up their 2001 ra-ra short for this sharp, inventive horror romp, featuring the most winning cheerleaders since Buffy hung up her pompoms. »

Film4 FrightFest 2014: Reviews, Wrap-up, and Image Gallery!

3 September 2014 8:30 AM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

This year's spectacular Film4 FrightFest has now sadly been and gone, but in the interest of keeping everything together, here's a hub filled with the numerous reviews from the event, our picture gallery, and a few videos courtesy of the FrightFest boys!

Briefly commenting on the festival itself: Many will have made note of the movement of the fest from its previous position at the prestigious Empire cinema to the Vue just a few doors down.

This was a sad side effect of the Empire's decision to split its absolutely massive main screen into two separate auditoriums, works which made it much too difficult to plan a further year at the site – especially given the burden of not exactly knowing when all would be completed. Thus, change was inevitable, and we really must say that despite wide trepidation regarding the festival's performance at the Vue site, the gang behind FrightFest – Ian, »

The Best of Film4 FrightFest 2014

27 August 2014 3:51 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Luke Owen looks back at this year’s Film4 FrightFest…

Wow, what a great showing of film’s at this year’s festival.

Film4 FrightFest is done for another year and we only have another 360-odd days until the next one. But while we wait with our breath held for the announcement of next year’s movies, let us reflect on the great films shown at this year’s festival.

8. The Mirror

This low budget British found footage movie took a lot of people by surprise at this year’s festival.

It was a very taut and tight affair with some great performances and direction to produce one of the best movies in the found footage genre since last year’s Frankenstein’s Army and The Borderlands.

Like many have at this year’s festival, Ed Boase has shown just how talented he is and will certainly be one to watch in years to come. »

Film4 FrightFest 2014 Review – White Settlers (2014)

25 August 2014 4:42 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

White Settlers, 2014

Directed by Simeon Halligan

Starring Pollyanna McIntosh and Lee Williams

Synopsis:

It’s Ed and Sarah’s first night at their new home – an isolated farmhouse on the Scottish borders. But as darkness falls, Sarah suspects they’re not alone.

There are some movies that will take a tried and tested genre and risk doing something new with it. Last year, Adam Wingard showed us that you can inject a level of dark humour into the home invasion genre with mixed successes, but for all its failings, You’re Next did try something new. The biggest fault with White Settlers is not the script, it’s not the characters or the story, it’s the fact that it doesn’t even attempt anything new. It’s every home invasion movie you’ve ever seen.

Sarah and Ed are a young couple who are looking to escape their big »

FrightFest 2014: All Cheerleaders Die

24 August 2014 12:52 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Director: Lucky McKee, Chris Sivertson.

Cast: Caitlin Stasey, Sianoa Smit-McPhee, Brooke Butler, Amanda Grace Cooper, Reanin Johannink, Tom Williamson.

Certificate: 18.

Running Time: 89 minutes.

Synopsis: Maddy (Stasey) is out for revenge against the cheerleaders and jocks. She infiltrates the cheerleaders and begin to forge friendships, but her attached neighbour Leena (Smit-McPhee), who is into the dark arts, becomes jealous. After a shocking accident, things begin to get out of hand between cheerleaders and football players.

How much can we in the UK care about cheerleading and American high school politics? It’s almost as though such cultural ideals are from a different planet entirely. Granted, we’ve been subjected to them throughout visual media and music videos, which has given us an insight into these vapid lifestyles. So why should we care about All Cheerleaders Die? Because it has the name Lucky McKee attached to it, and any man behind the »

FrightFest 2014: All Cheerleaders Die reaction

23 August 2014 5:00 AM, PDT | TotalFilm | See recent TotalFilm news »

An audacious second act twist rescues this frenetic high-school horredy from predictability, ensuring that while All Cheerleaders Die is far from perfect, it has a few sly surprises up its sleeves. Directed by Lucky McKee (of excellent FrightFest 2011 flick The Woman) and Chris Sivertson (the considerably less excellent I Know Who Killed Me) and based on the duo's 2001 short, it starts out routinely enough as Maddy (Caitlin Stasey) signs up for the high school cheerleading squad in order to teach the heartless pom-pom-pushers a lesson or...

Frightfest 2014: ‘White Settlers’ Review

23 August 2014 4:46 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Lee WilliamsPollyanna McIntosh, Joanne Mitchell, James McCreadie, Dominic Kay | Written by Ian Fenton | Directed by Simeon Halligan

White Settlers is the new film from West Midlands born director Simeon Halligan (Splintered); which begins with an English couple, Ed (Lee Williams) and Sarah (Pollyanna McIntosh), who are making a change in their life, leaving the hustle and bustle of the city to move to the quiet and quaint Scottish countryside, buying a worn-out yet workable house for a good price with plans to renovate it in their own time. They move in and on their first night begin to hear noises, while in bed, coming from downstairs. Their inspections initially find nothing more than an open door but we soon find that Ed and Sarah’s home is being invaded by a number of pig-mask wearing Scottish men. When Ed goes missing, Sarah attempts to escape the assailants and find her husband, »

Film4 FrightFest 2014 Review – All Cheerleaders Die (2013)

23 August 2014 2:49 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

All Cheerleaders Die, 2013

Written and Directed by Lucky McKee and Chris Silverston

Starring Caitlin Stasey, Sianoa Smit-McPhee, Brooke Butler, Tom Williamson, Amanda Grace Cooper, Reanin Johannink, Nicholas S. Morrison, Chris Petrovski, Leigh Parker, Jordan Wilson

Synopsis:

A rebel girl signs up a group of cheerleaders to help her take down the captain of their high school football team, but a supernatural turn of events thrusts the girls into a different battle.

All Cheerleaders Die harkens back to an era of films when Buffy the Vampire Slayer ruled TV and every teen horror was trying to be Scream. It’s a movie so dripping in 90s nostalgia, but never tries to force it upon its audience. It’s there if you want to relive the glory days of late 90s horrors aimed at the “me generation”, but it’s still its own movie – and a damn fine one too.

Like all good horrors with wacky plots, »
