The artwork for this year’s Film 4 FrightFest has been revealed. Legendary poster artist Graham Humphreys has once again come up with a design evocative of the prestigious horror festival.
Graham explains: “While I was looking for a theme for this year's poster, I ran with the idea of Magic. At a recent visit to the incredible Cinema Museum in Kennington (one of my favourite haunts) I was admiring their extensive collection, among which I noticed a number of Victorian 'Magic Lanterns'.
This formed the basis if my concept, the idea of magical projection through one of these exotic devices. Running with the theme, I took the application of Aleister Crowley's 'Magik' rituals and placed our regular FrightFest monster posed in the distinctive manner of one of the best known photographs of 'The Beast'.
Using the projection device, a legion of demons is unleashed, surround by magical symbols. They - just as we will - are enjoying the shared spectacle generated by the satanic lamp."
The festival takes place at London’s VUE Cinema between Thursday, August 27th and Monday August 31st and will see over 80 films shown over six screens.
Passes and day tickets will go on sale on July 4th at 10am, and will be available online only. Single tickets will be on sale through the VUE website, call centre and at the cinema for personal callers from July 18th.
