The guests for this year’s Horror Channel FrightFest, which takes place at Cineworld Leicester Square and The Prince Charles Cinema on August 24th - 28th, have been revealed.

This year's 150-plus guest list includes several returning favourites and some of the hottest new talent. Don Mancini, Fiona Dourif, and Jennifer Tilly will be attending for the opening World Premiere of Cult of Chucky.  Also attending five years after his previous appearance will be Kane Hodder, who will be with director Derek Dennis Herbert for the remarkably honest and moving documentary To Hell and Back: The Kane Hodder Story as well as supporting another returning favourite, director Adam Green, who will be at the event to launch his Hatchet redux.

Joe Lynch will also be in town to screen the eagerly-anticipated Mayhem. Joe will also team up with Adam for a special edition of their famous Movie Crypt Podcast.

Hollywood horror royalty Barbara Crampton returns to FrightFest with Replace, alongside the film’s director Norbert Keil. Barbara is also one of the New Blood mentors; alongside prolific 68 Kill producer Travis Stevens and Attack of the Adult Babies director and TV star Dominic Brunt. Dominic will be joined for the film’s World Premiere by producer and actor (not to mention his wife) Joanne Mitchell, and lead actor Sally Dexter.

Julien Maury and Alexandre Bustillo who will be attending for the World Premiere of their exceptional prequel Leatherface, alongside cast members Vanessa Grasse, James Bloor, and Jessica Madsen. Making his directorial debut is actor Jason Flemyng, who will be along with his comedy horror Eat Locals, part of the ‘First Blood’ strand. Jason will introduce the film alongside the cast, including Annette Crosbie and Dexter Fletcher.

There’s also a major film addition to the schedule with Jackals, Kevin Greutert’s potent blend of horror thriller, home invasion terror and murder cult chiller starring Stephen Dorff and Deborah Kara Unger.
