Here’s our overall low-down of the fourth day’s events…
The FrightFest International Short Film Showcase:
The Halloween Kid
Director: Axelle Carolyn (UK)
Overall: A charming little story about an outcast with an over-active and subtly foreboding imagination, who only finds true happiness during Halloween. It’s probably the least offensive horror film ever made, but there’s an eerie subtext that plays with your mind.
Director: Geoffrey Cowper (Spain)
Overall: This high concept film sees inexplicably huge snails tear a teenage party to pieces whilst a young man tries to woo his ex-girlfriend. An absurd horror that mixes romance, black humour, and a blistering soundtrack.
