Film4 FrightFest 2015 marks its 16th year with its biggest line-up to date. From Thurs 27th August to Mon 31st August, the UK’s leading event for genre fans will return to the Vue West End, Leicester Square to present 76 films across five screens, plus a host of special events.

There are eighteen countries representing 5 continents with a record-breaking 16 European premieres and 26 UK premieres. In addition, there is a further ‘Discovery’ strand at The Prince Charles Cinema, signalling a welcome return to FrightFest’s spiritual home.

The festival kicks off with David Keating’s Cherry Tree, there is the world premiere of Steve Oram’s hilarious and very disturbing AAAAAAAAH!, Dominic Brunt’s sharp-edged female revenge saga Bait, Ben and Chris Blaine’s sexually charged zom-rom-com Nina Forever, Mark Murphy’s tale of twisted minds, Awaiting, Paul Hyett’s much-anticipated Howl, Adam Levins’ sinister family drama Estranged, Howard J. Ford’s pulsating child-abduction thriller Never Let Go, Corin Hardy’s Sundance sensation The Hallow, Ruth Platt’s morally-challenging chiller The Lesson, Liam Regan’s gruesome revenge saga Banjo, Eugene McGing’s supernatural haunter The Unfolding and Afterdeath, a hellish thriller by new directors Gez Medinger and Robin Schmidt.

Their closing anthology Tales of Halloween and ‘gorious’ festive attraction A Christmas Horror Story are also on the list, as is Iain Softley’s cleverly vicious Curve, Bernard Rose’s stylishly affecting Frankenstein and Adrian Garcia Bogliano’s masterpiece Scherzo Diabolico.
