The penultimate day of this year’s Glasgow Film Festival was the only one apart from the opening day without a free morning science fiction film, which resulted in some fans sulking that it just didn’t feel right without one of festival co-director Allan Hunter’s introductions.

Attempts to stream it off Vimeo straight onto the big screen were getting nowhere so the decision was eventually made to show A Night Of Horror: Nightmare Radio, which had been scheduled to be the mini-fest’s closing film, instead, but the loosely structured anthology left fans who had been spoiled by the previous night’s anthology, The Mortuary Collection,

‘A Night of Horror: Nightmare Radio’ Review: Dirs. Miscellaneous [Frightfest]

‘A Night of Horror: Nightmare Radio’ Review: Dirs. Miscellaneous [Frightfest]
A Night of Horror: Nightmare Radio is an anthology with a difference. Rather than several filmmakers being commissioned to create a short for inclusion in a feature film, it is instead a collection of pre-existing shorts that have been curated and worked together with a new wraparound story. The masterminds behind this idea are Argentinian directors Nicolás and Luciano Onetti, of Francesca and Abrakadabra fame, whom also direct the linking story.

The linking story hones in on a radio DJ Rod Wilson whom hosts a late-night show that tells a series of scary stories. These are told via both Rod himself, and listeners calling in, giving the film a ‘ghost stories by the camp fire’ vibe.

As with any anthology, the

Mexico’s Premier Horror Event Morbido Fest Readies Twelfth Edition
As the calendar changes from October to November, Mexican horror fans will ascend for the twelfth year on Morbido Fest, a Mexico City-based festival dedicated to all things macabre, organized and executed by Morbido Group CEO and founder Pablo Guisa Koestinger.

This year’s festival will kick off Oct. 30 with a spectacle grander in its ambition than any Morbido inauguration before. Taking place within the Esperanza Iris City theater, more than 60 artists will perform six choreographed musical numbers with Guisa taking the reigns as master of ceremonies.
