Frightfest 2016 Line-Up Announced

The line-up for the 17th annual Frightfest has been announced, read on for more…

We’ve barely recovered from last year’s event but Frightfest is almost upon us again. The world of horror will descend on the British capital from Thursday 25th August, running until Monday 29th August. This year the event moves out of the London West End for the first time in its history, and will instead take place at the Vue in Shepard’s Bush. The move is primarily motivated by building work at the original location, but does mean that there will be a lot more space, and more space means more films.

Last year’s event showcased 76 of the best new genre films on the market, a very impressive number. Never ones to rest on their laurels, the Frightfest organisers have an enormous 62 films on display this year, giving the audience a little more space to breathe,

Don't Get In The Haunted Car! But Do Check Out The Trailer For Russian Horror The Route Is Built (Маршрут построен)

Cinema likes haunting things. We've had haunted houses. We've had haunted dolls. We've had haunted spouses, haunted children, haunted boxes, haunted schools, haunted roads. But I don't believe that I've ever before seen a film about a haunted car. [Please note: Todd was not yet caffeinated when he wrote this and forgot about the incredibly obvious example of Christine. Because he's kind of stupid that way.] Oleg Assadulin's Маршрут построен (romanized as Marshrut Postroen, literally translated as The Route Is Built) changes that.A veteran genre director the director of The Phobos and Dark World 2 here tells the story of a young couple that jump at the chance to buy a high end car at a low end price.

Creepy English-Subtitled Trailer for Russian Horror Flick Phobos

There are several intriguing movies coming out of Russian these days, and Oleg Assadulin’s “Phobos” looks to be one them. That being said, I am a little skeptical. From the looks of the latest trailer, the film appears to be your typical “teens lost in creepy tunnels” flick, not unlike Igor Shavlak’s terrible 2007 slasher “Trackman”. However, there’s a creepy vibe running throughout “Phobos” that I was hadn’t anticipated, which leads me to believe that I’m unfairly comparing this film to its like-minded counterpart. After all, “The Descent” is certainly not “The Cave”. Hopefully that makes sense. If not, I sincerely hope you get over it. Here’s a brief synopsis from IMDb: Rainy summer evening… Young people are arriving at the new trendy club named Phobos which is still under construction. Or re-construction – since it’s a former bomb shelter which is reconstructed to become a club.
