UK PREMIERE - Fear is an art form, an adrenaline trip with a rock spirit. Why is it that our attraction for the morbid, the sinister and the horrific can create the greatest of monsters, the greatest of tensions? From director Gustavo Leonel Mendoza, a fascinating documentary that takes you inside the global horror festival circuit to uncover and explore the fanaticism of those who love the fantasy genre. With spooky audiovisual sequences, and insight from genre specialists (including FrightFest’s Alan Jones), filmmakers, stars and writers who are passionate about the subject, this shows us how much fun it is to be scared.
