With the success of August's fifth annual FrightFest at London's Prince Charles cinema this year, the team behind the event have finally fulfilled their long-promised threat to take great horror films on tour around the UK.
The team have already visited Nottingham (where there was world exclusive footage screened from Dario Argento's latest - Do You like Hitchcock?) and most recently Brighton, where guest appearances included Christopher Smith, the Director of Creep and Julian Richards (Director) and Kevin Howarth (Lead actor) from The Last Horror Movie.
The final part of the tour takes place this coming Saturday (Dec 4th) at The Phoenix Arts Centre, screening such films as The Machinist (definitely check this one out! – one of the best films of the year!), Creep (a solid British horror based on the London Underground), and Monster Man which was one of the biggest hits at the London event, and is sure to be a cult classic.
Organisers Alan Jones and Paul McEvoy will be there to host the night and give away freebies, and it is rumoured that Creep Director Christopher Smith will also be there to introduce his film.
