Ten of the Best at FrightFest 2015

4 hours ago | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The August bank holiday weekend in London is always cause for celebration for horror fans as the FrightFest horror and genre film festival rolls into the city’s Leicester Square for four days of blood-spattered cinematic mayhem. This year saw the arrival of horror icon and star of Re-Animator and You’re Next, Barbara Crampton, as the Guest of Honour who starred in no less than five of the entries this year including festival favourite We Are Still Here. As always with film festivals it was a real mixed bag, with very few scares but a lot of laughs (some intentional, other not so much) as the filmmakers, many of them horror fans themselves, had a lot of fun playing with the tropes and clichés of the genre while others tried to put fresh new spins on some well-worn material. Here are a few of the highlights:

10 best films of Film4 FrightFest 2015

2 September 2015 7:33 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Luke Owen looks at this year’s FrightFest…

What a year this was. Every time FrightFest rolls around, the four madmen behind the festival promise the ‘best line-up ever’, and this year was no different. Each screen was packed out, there was plenty of surprises on offer and some great interviews with the likes of Barbara Crampton, Neil Marshall and Iain Softley.

As for the movies themselves, we had a great variety. From the terrifying (Demonic) to the utterly bizarre (Ahhhhh!) to the downright brilliant (Turbo Kid), there was something for everyone. There were arty films (Sun Choke), heart-breaking films (These Final Hours) and a movie where Santa Claus fights off zombie eleves (A Christmas Horror Story). What more could you ask for?

Well, here’s the 10 best films of the festival (in no order), according to Flickering Myth:

Film4 FrightFest 2015 Review – Tales of Halloween (2015)

2 September 2015 5:55 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Tales of Halloween, 2015

Directed by Darren Lynn Bousman, Axelle Carolyn, Adam Gierasch, Andrew Kasch, Neil Marshall, Lucky McKee, Mike Mendez, Dave Parker, Ryan Schifrin, John Skipp, Paul Solet

Synopsis:

Ten stories are woven together by their shared theme of Halloween night in an American suburb, where ghouls, imps, aliens and axe murderers appear for one night only to terrorize unsuspecting residents.

Here’s the simple truth as to why Tales of Halloween is a fabulous and utterly brilliant film: it has no pretensions about what it’s trying to be. They’re not trying to be outrageous, controversial or subversive, this is a film where a group of producers teamed up with directors they liked who in turn worked with actors they liked to make ten incredibly fun shorts based on All Hallow’s Eve – and it has paid off by the bucket load.

Tales Of Halloween review [FrightFest 2015]: “Will most definitely become a yearly tradition”

1 September 2015 7:26 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Tales Of Halloween review

Directors: Darren Lynn Bousman, Axelle Carolyn, Adam Gierasch, Andrew Kasch, Neil Marshall, Lucky McKee, Mike Mendez, Dave Parker, Ryan Schifrin, John Skipp, Paul Solet

Cast: Lyn Shaye, Pollyanna McIntosh, John Landis, Adrienne Barbeau, Greg Grunberg

Certificate: Tbd

Running Time: 111 Minutes

Synopsis: Some of horror’s current crop of brilliant directors deliver an anthology series of 10 terrifying tales all set around the most ghoulish time of year.

The horror anthology continues to gather steam. Over the years the likes of VHS, ABCs Of Death, and Trick ‘r Treat have brought back the format that allows many little moments of terror to be presented. It works well for horror, simulating a round of campfire one upmanship. Tales Of Halloween gives 11 directors the chance to weave a tale centred around the holiday. Set in the same town on the same night, a number of disastrous events take place.

Review: Tales Of Halloween

26 August 2015 12:12 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

As a devoted lover of the current indie horror scene, there is no horror movie I was anticipating more this year than Tales of Halloween, an anthology film with contributions from 11 of the strongest voices working in the genre today. This is my event film. This is my Avengers. And it does not disappoint. Tales of Halloween isn’t just one of the best anthologies of the last 30 years, but also among the best Halloween-themed horror movies ever made. It’s funny and bloody and wicked and affectionate towards the genre in a way that few other films are. It’s the most fun I’ve had at a horror movie in a long, long time.

Taking place all on the same Halloween night, Tales offers up ten stories of slashers, aliens, killer kids, monsters, ghosts, witches, and the devil as played by Barry Bostwick. The list of talent »

26 August 2015 8:13 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Given to Daily Dead as an exclusive, the Night People trailer shows us that even criminals can spin the creepiest of yarns. Also: details on the 10th anniversary screening of Neil Marshall's The Descent and a look at the short film Tailypo.

Night People: "'Night People' is an Irish Sci-Fi / Horror film which marks the feature film directorial debut of Gerard Lough.

A pair of professional but badly mismatched criminals breaks into a vacant house to carry out an insurance scam. Awkwardly thrown together with an hour to kill, they reluctantly start telling each other tall tales. One concerns two friends who discover a mysterious device that may be of alien origin. The more they learn about it, the closer to the breaking point their friendship is pushed. The other is about an ambitious business woman who provides a dating agency for wealthy fetishists. She attempts »

Fantasia ’15 Review: Tales Of Halloween

12 August 2015 5:00 AM, PDT | Destroy the Brain | See recent Destroy the Brain news »

USA/2015/World Premiere

Directed by: Neil Marshall, Lucky Mckee, Darren Lynn Bousman, John Skipp, Mike Mendez, Ryan Schifrin, Paul Solet, Axelle Carolyn, Dave Parker, Adam Gierasch!

Stick a gaggle of deviants together in a room and it won`t take long before someone mentions their love for Halloween. Hidden amongst the norms for most of the year, you can normally sniff these people out, if you`re careful and smart about it:  a black cat accentuates at least one article of their clothing, skull shaped masks adorn their abode, white grease paint is constantly found in their creases, the color orange is pretty much everywhere, they are giddy when holiday meat is carved. They have also been known to have huge libidos, to be great in the sack and are apparently way above average in intelligence. Great. In. The. Sack.

Fantasia 2015 Review: Tales Of Halloween, A Pumpkin-Flavored Love Letter From Hell

30 July 2015 12:04 AM, PDT | Twitch | See recent Twitch news »

Horror anthologies have made a pretty healthy comeback in the last few years; some are ok, some are regrettable, and some have awesome production values as well as good stories, such as Tales Of Halloween, which sold out its world premiere screening at Fantasia last week. Created by director Axelle Carolyn, Tales features 11 directors helming 10 tales of bad behavior, wickedness, madness, and spooky fun, with an animated opening sequence by Ashley Thorpe. Made under the umbrella collective of "The October Society," this film showcases the talents of horror directors Carolyn, Neil Marshall, Darren Lynn Bousman, John Skipp, Andrew Kasch, Lucky McKee, Adam Gierasch, Dave Parker, Mike Mendez, Ryan Schifrin, and Paul Solet. Adrienne Barbeau pretty much reprises her The Fog DJ character in a sense, her...

Will 'Tales of Halloween' be the next great horror anthology?

14 July 2015 6:07 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Feature-length horror movie anthologies are pretty hit and miss, but there are a few that have been well-received including "Creepshow," "Tales from the Crypt," "Trilogy of Terror," "V/H/S," "Trick 'r Treat" and 1945's "Dead of Night." The latest entry in the sub-genre is "Tales of Halloween," which features segments directed by such horror luminaries as Lucky McKee ("May"), Neil Marshall ("The Descent") and Darren Lynn Bousman (the "Saw" franchise) and featuring appearances by fright flick icons like Lin Shaye, John Landis, Joe Dante, Adrienne Barbeau and -- my all-time favorite -- "Twilight's" BooBoo Stewart. So will it be worth a watch? Check out the Comic Con-debuted trailer below and decide for yourself. Given the sheer number of directors involved, expect it to be all over the map. »

New Trailer For Tales Of Halloween Sets The Tone Early For The Spookiest Night Of The Year

14 July 2015 9:36 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

It may only be July, but it can take a while to get in just the right mood for certain annual festivities. So, thank goodness for the early arrival of a trailer for Tales Of Halloween – an anthology horror movie featuring ten different segments, directed by eleven different directors.

“Ten stories are woven together by their shared theme of Halloween night in an American suburb, where ghouls, imps, aliens and axe murderers appear for one night only, to terrorise unsuspecting residents.”

In many respects, an advantage of a horror anthology is the fact that it allows for many filmmakers to showcase their work, giving the whole project a fascinating blend of flavours. However, what is notable about Tales Of Halloween, is that – despite – featuring the work of very individual directors, there is an overall tone that snakes through each one, making it feel very much like part of a larger whole. »
