The horror festival season – that exciting time of year when horror fans around the world seek out their nearest venue to load up on the latest gory offerings – is nearly upon us. Over in London, they are mere weeks away from the thirteenth annual FrightFest, and the lineup is set to be one of the best yet. Here are a few films to keep your eyes on so you’ll be ahead of the curve when they reach these shores. (Unless, of course, you’re fortunate enough to be going, you lucky bastards; in that case, these are ones you shouldn’t miss.)
13 DAYS UNTIL THE 13 ANNUAL FRIGHT FEST! I'm very extremely stoked to see AMERICAN MARY play in the main stage at 11am on August 27th in London. I will be there in attendance with my doppelgänger, Jen, with cast members - my Mary, Katharine Isabelle, and our dearest detective, John Emmet Tracy. Be sure to come by and say 'what up.'
Posted by the fantastic April Snellings and written by the uber talented Charlotte Stear of Rue Morgue, we take a look at the horrifyingly rad lineup at the fest and drops her thoughts on what to expect with each film. By the by, being mentioned in an article by Rue Morgue is a patriotic honour here in the Great North - so I am feeling very privileged to be included in the article and for her very kind words.
Colour me excited for this one. Those Twisted Twins, Jen and Sylvia Soska, are back with a follow-up to their hit debut Dead Hooker in a Trunk. This time ’round, their film focuses on surgical student Mary Mason (Katharine Isabelle), who, after becoming disheartened with medical school, is lured into an underground world of freakish surgeries.
American Mary has been doing very well at festivals and conventions so far, and the trailer is intriguing as hell.
Check the whole piece here. The lineup that Fright Fest is ridiculously amazing. I cannot wait to see the films. And to see you, boys and girls, in that theatre just as the lights dim and AMERICAN MARY starts.
