It’s that time of year again! As part of the Glasgow Film Festival, FrightFest returns to Scotland with three days of fear-inducing movies. Taking place from Thursday, March 10th to Saturday, March 12th, Arrow Video FrightFest will present 12 features that will thrill, shock, and excite!
Thursday night is a stand-alone ticket presentation of The Execution, the UK premiere of the Russian smash-hit horror thriller.
On Friday, the event kicks off good and proper with the UK premiere of the Irish supernatural film The Cellar, directed by Brendan Muldowney and starring Elisha Cuthbert.
This is followed by the world premiere of Christopher Lee Parsons’ A Cloud So High, starring legendary actor John Savage.
UK movie Homebound from director Sebastian Godwin gets its first screening on these shores and promises some creepy children.
Staying with family strife, You Are Not My Mother, another Irish film getting its UK debut. Directed by Kate Dolan, it stars Paul Reid and Hazel Doupe.
Closing the Friday schedule is the eagerly-awaited UK premiere of Wyrmwood: Apocalypse, as we return to director Kiah Roache-Turner’s zombie-infested wasteland.
Saturday kicks off with Northern Irish creeper Mandrake, directed by Lynne Davison and getting its UK premiere.
Howard J. Ford – one half of the team that brought us The Dead – presents the UK premiere of his latest film The Ledge, in which Brittany Ashworth is left fending and fearing for her life on a mountain.
The UK premiere of Fench comedy-horror Some Like it Rare (aka Barbaque) has director Fabrice Eboué serving up cannibalistic in a butcher’s shop that’s struggling to survive.
Christina Ricci stars in the international premiere of Monstrous, directed by Chris Sivertson.
The Scottish premiere of the Italian film Freaks Out is up next. Directed by Gabriele Mainetti, it’s an alt-history epic story of circus workers attempting to chance the Third Reich.
Rounding up the Saturday and closing Arrow Video FrightFest Glasgow is the Scottish premiere of Let the Wrong One In, the latest film from Stitches director Connor MacMahon. This Irish twist on the vampire tale stars Karl Rice, Eoin Duffy, and Buffy’s Anthony Head and will raise a few laughs as well as pack some bite.
