Welcome! For my first post I am thrilled to announce that I’ll be attending the 2014 Glasgow FrightFest. I’ll be heading up north tomorrow to take in all the sights and sounds and thrills of this exciting festival. Over the next three days, I’m going to immerse myself in horror geek culture as I take in a dozen brand new and incredibly diverse films from around the world. I loved Film4’s FrightFest Allnighter in Bristol last November, and I can’t wait to see what gruesome, campy, tragic and chilling surprises Glasgow has in store for me. Let’s have a look at the programme, then:
Day 1: FrightFest kicks off in the evening with a special guest speaker: Ti West!
Day 2: Savaged, Proxy, Wolf Creek 2, The Sacrament, Afflicted
Day 3: Video Nasties: Draconian Days, The Scribbler, Torment, Mindscape, Almost Human, Killers
Stay tuned for daily updates on the event, as well as more in-depth reviews of the films once I’ve had the chance to recover and readjust to reality.
Meet you up in the Dear Green Place!
