Film4 FrightFest 2014 Announces Guest Line-up

 

 

It's unbelievable that this year's London Frightfest is less than a month away, and that we'll be there, soaking up the horror for the entire weekend in just a few weeks. Unlike previous years the guest line-up has been somewhat delayed in 2014, apparently while the organisers were waiting for confirmation of one guest. Well all is confirmed now and the official announcement is below:

 

ROBERT ENGLUND GETS HIS CLAWS INTO FRIGHTFEST, RISING STAR MAIKA MONROE MAKES 'GUEST' APPEARANCE AND COMIC-BOOK LEGEND ALAN MOORE GIVES RARE PUBLIC INTERVIEW.

 

This year's Film4 FrightFest guest list brings together the great, the grand and the gifted as over 100 filmmakers, performers, writers and producers from all over the world make their way to the Vue West End for the 15th Film4 FrightFest event which runs from Thurs 21st – 25th August.

 

He lit up the 1980s and 90s genre landscape with one of the classic horror performances of all time as Freddy Krueger in A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET. Cue rounds of ecstatic applause for the one and only Robert Englund who will be attending the festival to celebrate the 30th Anniversary of that Wes Craven classic (screening on Sunday Aug 24) and to launch the latest production in which he stars, THE LAST SHOWING, which screens on Friday Aug 22.

 

Festival co-director Alan Jones commented today "Englund is one of the genre's originals and we are thrilled to host such an icon of fright".

 

In support of the opening film THE GUEST, today's hottest Scream Queen, Maika Monroe, will be present to celebrate the UK premiere of her tension-laden shocker. Monro is also the star of horror sensation IT FOLLOWS and is rapidly becoming the go-to-girl for genre glamour.

 

In a major coup for his legion of fans, Alan Moore will be introducing and talking about his short film trilogy SHOW PIECES with director Mitch Jenkins. Dubbed the best graphic novel writer in history, this is rare public appearance from a National Treasure.

 

Then there's director John McNaughton who changed the horror movie forever with his once-seen-never-forgotten masterpiece HENRY: PORTRAIT OF A SERIAL KILLER. McNaughton is here to promote his unusual thriller THE HARVEST.

 

Essie Davis is currently winning a plethora of Best Actress awards for her emotionally complex and stunning role as the stressed out mother Amelia in the Australian phenomenon THE BABADOOK. We are thrilled to have her with us as the Total Film Magazine sponsored guest of honour.

 

Other key directors include Nacho Vigalondo, who has three films on show – the epic crowd-pleaser OPEN WINDOWS, his sci-fi comedy EXTRATERRESTRIAL and V/H/S: VIRAL, Belgian filmmaker Fabrice Du Welz, for his extraordinary thriller ALLELUIA, Till Kleinert, director of post-modern slasher THE SAMURAI, STARRY EYES directors Kevin Kolsch & Dennis Widmyer and the ever-popular Adam Green with his unusual offering, DIGGING UP THE MARROW. From South America come Argentine director Adrian Garcia Bogliano with his werewolf winner LATE PHASES and Venezuelan director Alejandro Hidalgo with THE HOUSE AT THE END OF TIME.

 

Additional directors travelling to the Vue West End to introduce their work are Milan Todorovic (NYMPH), Luke Hymans (XMOOR), Jay Weisman (SHOCKWAVE DARKSIDE 3D), Ivan Kavanagh (THE CANAL) Phil Hawkins (THE LAST SHOWING) Ben Wagner (DEAD WITHIN), David Campbell (LEMON TREE PASSAGE), Ate De Jong (DEADLY VIRTUES), David Gregory (LOST SOULS), John Shackleton (THE SLEEPING ROOM), Jeremy Wooding (BLOOD MOON), Jessica Cameron (TRUTH OR DARE), Alexandre O Philippe (DOC OF THE DEAD, Ollie Frampton (THE FORGOTTEN), Ed Boase (THE MIRROR), Adam Spinks (THE EXPEDITION), Simeon Haligan (WHITE SETTLERS), Jorg Buttgereit (NEKROMANTIK), Matthew A. Brown (JULIA) and Federico Zampaglone (REMEMBER).

 

The stars of the films are out in force (with more to be confirmed) Pit Bukowski and Michel Diercks (THE SAMURAI), Rupert Evans and Steve Oram (THE CANAL), THE LAST SHOWING stars Emily Berrington, Finn Jones and Malachi Kirby, XMOOR stars Nick Blood & Sofie Harkness, DEADLY VIRTUES actor Edward Akrout, Shaun Dooley (BLOOD MOON), Leila Mimmock & Joseph Beatty (THE SLEEPING ROOM), Ashley C. Williams (JULIA), Joshua Dickinson & Nate Fallows (THE MIRROR) and Emily Booth (SELKIE)
