Horror Channel FrightFest took place over the Bank Holiday weekend and it served up 5 days of solid horror entertainment.

With a host of premieres, lots of film-making talent and so many films on offer, it was the best year of the festival yet. Even better, it returned to London’s Empire, Leicester Square.

We spent the past five days watching as many films as we possibly could and it’s far to say the slate was very strong this year. After much deliberation, we’ve picked out Top 5 films of Horror Channel FrightFest 2017.

 

5. Better Watch Out

 

We said: ‘It does something wonderfully inventive and for that it deserves to be widely applauded. Whatever you think this film is going to be, we assure you it’ll be completely different to what you expect and that’s what makes it a real gem.’

4. Mayhem

We said: ‘Mayhem is a great cult classic that finds that sweet spot which we all have. If you’ve ever worked a job you have hated then Mayhem is the perfect antidote to vicariously live through.’

3. 68 Kill

 

We said: ’68 Kill is an acquired taste for sure but it’s a whole lot of fun too. If you like stylised gore, dark humour and strong female characters, you’ll love everything about this film.’

2. Cult of Chucky

 

We said: ‘Mancini has a wild imagination clearly and he manages to channel all of his ideas into a film that is a worthy successor to Curse of Chucky. It’s also perhaps his most balls-to-the-wall outing yet but that’s definitely part of its charm.’

1. Tragedy Girls

 

We said: ‘Tragedy Girls is a welcome breath of fresh air for the horror genre. It’s suitably outrageous and shocking while maintaining a wicked sense of humour. MacIntyre has a real breakout hit on his hands here and Tragedy Girls could well be one of the defining horror movies of a generation.’

Horror Channel FrightFest is expected to return for another year in August 2018.
