This year’s Film4 FrightFest guest list brings together the great, the grand and the gifted as over 100 filmmakers, performers, writers and producers from all over the world make their way to the Vue West End for the 15th Film4 FrightFest event which runs from Thursday 21st – Monday 25th August.

In the Red Room with a Vue, the chorus of delighted FrightFester’s are set to join together in joyous song for the chorus of their clawed and shrivelled icon…
“One, two, Freddy’s coming for you.
Three, four, Better lock your door
Five, six, grab your crucifix.
Seven, eight, Gonna stay up late.
Nine, ten, He’s back again.”
If life can be described as a disappointment, of a vortex of uncertainty, then the one constant is FILM4 FrightFest, which, like a beacon of light, guides us to safely towards a guaranteed trip of unadulterated pleasure into the Dark Heart of Cinema every August Bank Holiday.
So what news has fallen upon our ears to add a little more detail to what the landscape of FrightFest 15 looks like?
Well, this year’s Film4 FrightFest guest list brings together the great, the grand and the gifted as over 100 filmmakers, performers, »

“I’m your boyfriend now, Nancy.” It may be hard to believe, but it’s been thirty years since Robert Englund’s Freddy Krueger said those words to Heather Langenkamp’s Nancy in Wes Craven’s A Nightmare on Elm Street. A 30th anniversary screening of the film is taking place at this year’s Film4 FrightFest, and Englund has been announced as a member of a guest lineup that includes Alan Moore.
Taking place at London’s Vue West End, the 15th Film4 FrightFest will run from August 21st – 25th. In addition to celebrating the 30th anniversary of A Nightmare on Elm Street, Robert Englund will also be unveiling his latest film, The Last Showing.

Extraterrestrial is the new title for the sci-fi/horror flick formerly known as The Visitors. (No relation to the Nacho Vigalondo film of the same name, of course.) This one hails from the Vicious Brothers, the duo who brought us Grave Encounters. Here, they're dropping the supernatural for some straight-up alien-driven chills. Shock has your exclusive first look at the poster and we can now also tell you it is hitting VOD October 17th and select theaters on November 21st from IFC.

The central star of our recent A Nightmare On Elm Street look back, Robert Englund, has confirmed that he will be attending this year’s annual FrightFest. The event which takes place each August Bank Holiday and this year finds a new home at the Vue West End.
We had the honour of being in the great man’s presence once before and can confirm that he’s always an incredibly polite and articulate fella. Englund will be at the festival to launch his latest production The Last Showing as well as celebrating the 30th anniversary of the film that catapulted him to the status a horror icon. For those lucky enough to have tickets to the event the master of menace will not only be introducing each of the three screening of his latest venture, but also returning post credits for a Q&A session.

Whether you’re attending Fantasia 2014 in person or covering it remotely, you can’t miss the staggering number of new horror films that have been terrifying our Montreal audiences over the past week, and will continue to do so through August 5th!
Since starting on July 17th, Fantasia 2014 has already screened Nacho Vigalondo’s Open Windows, Patch Town, werewolf shocker Late Phases, rom/zom/com Life After Beth, the Kat Dennings-starring horror comedy Suburban Gothic, insane … Continue reading →
When he burst onto the scene in 2007 with his Spanish debut feature “Timecrimes,” everyone saw a potential new big name from a nation with a knack for churning out directors who really know how (and really, really want) to thrill you. But Nacho Vigalondo’s follow up “Extraterrestrial” in 2011 was more of a whimper compared to the bang he started off with. This year, the hope is that his English language debut puts him back in gear. After a six year absence from the festival, Nacho Vigalondo is back at Fantasia to spook you into never looking at your computer screen the same way again, especially if there’s one too many windows open at the same time. To help him get an even bigger international boost, he’s got the support of an ex-porn star and an ex-hobbit. Unfortunately it feels like the rise keeps getting stunted because those »

Three’s a trend, right?

Joining V/H/S’ “The Sick That Happened to Emily When She Was Younger,” The Den and Nacho Vigalondo’s Open Windows, Cybernatural is the latest in […] »

Reading the headline from the news release for Cybernatural, the first thing that came to mind was how on earth I'd missed a new movie from Timur Bekmambetov. Turns out he isn't directing this bit of horror, only presenting. But I figure I'll give him the benefit and give this a go.
The story is straight forward: a bullied teen girl kills herself, the bullies feel bad and try to take down the offensive videos but can't because "On the internet, your sins live forever." Seriously, that's the tagline; it might be cheesy but it's also true...
Boyhood, Schmoyhood. While some of my more distinguished film nerd compatriots may be waiting with rapt attention for Fantasia’s more ‘conventional’ offerings, my attention is fixed on the more unconventional fare: the anime, the kung fu, the movies that avoid classification all together. Fantasia isn’t Fantasia unless you’re watching something you almost certainly couldn’t see at most other festivals, and this year’s installment looks to have that in spades. Here some of my top picks from Fantasia 2014′s stellar line-up.
The Demon of the Lute
Directed by Lung Yat Sing
Hong Kong, 1983
As I learned during 2012′s screening of the Shaw Brothers classic Fist of the White Lotus, very few things in this world rock quite as hard as classic kung fu movies in glorious 35mm on a big screen. Digital projection may be well and good, but as old-school movie buffs know, the feeling of watching an aged, »

The 2014 Fantasia International Film Festival is ready to hit Montreal hard, lasting from July 17-August 5th, and like usual, Icons of Fright will be bringing you fright fanatics review coverage galore, as this year’s lineup is definitely one to write home about. Everything from my most anticipated film of the year, Faults, Richard Bates, Jr. (Excision)’s horror/comedy Suburban Gothic, and the Todd Farmer (Jason X, My Bloody Valentine 3D scribe) written animated film Heavenly Sword, to Nacho Vigalondo(Timecrimes)’s Open Windows, the festival is showcasing genre titles left and right. Also sure to please viewers, the festival will be showing the Aj Bowen and Amy Siemetz-led The Reconstruction Of William Zero, James Gunn’s Guardians Of The Galaxy, and the Latvian slasher, The Man In The Orange Jacket.

This October is shaping up to be quite a month for horror buffs. Warner Bros. and New Line will be unveiling The Conjuring spinoff Annabelle, Universal will finally release blockbuster Dracula Untold, and the Jason Blum-produced Ouija will also be hitting screens. ABCs of Death 2 has been rumored to release around October 31st as well.

V/H/S Viral will also be getting a limited theatrical release on November 21st, which seems like a weird strategy by Magnet, but perhaps the flick will be good enough that fans will want to go back for more on the big screen? (Yeah, we somehow doubt that too.) Anyhow, the fact that it »
