This year’s artwork for Horror Channel FrightFest has been revealed. Painted and designed once again by the fantastic genre artist Graham Humphreys, famous for film posters and video covers of such classics as A Nightmare on Elm Street and Basket Case.

Graham said about creating the artwork for the annual horror film festival, which will be held at Shepherd's Bush Vue cinema for the first time: “This year’s relocation suggested the idea of a floating cinema that can move through the city. Going west, I took it all the way to Louisiana, as portrayed in the film Southern Comfort, reimagining London as a swampland. I took my cues from a variety of sources; the ‘feu follet’ (will-o’-the-wisp) are mentioned in George Washington Cable’s short story Jean-ah Poquelin, the paddle steamer was inspired by the work of Mark Twain and the skulls from the script of Orson Welles’ unmade Heart Of Darkness. There’s also a nod to Hertzog’s Fitzcarraldo. The witch house I added for extra Scooby-Doo points!”

 

Horror Channel FrightFest takes place over five days at the August Bank Holiday, 25th - 29th. The full festival line-up of films will be announced on Friday, July 1st and all ticketing information can be found at http://www.frightfest.co.uk/tickets.html
