Just a heads up for the FF team

Please do all you can to secure HEREDITARY for August this year, as I expect most FF fans will be wanting to see that.

Big hit at Sundance, and looking like it's this year's The Witch/Babadook/Get Out/You're Next etc.

Couple of places I always visit when I'm in town Herman ze German - 33 Old Compton St, Soho, London W1D 5JU Chipotle Mexican Grill - 92-93 St Martin's Ln, London WC2N 4AP Last time Frightfest was in Leicester Square, Herman ze German were offering a pretty hefty discount on food with a festival pass

Re: Thoughts on the schedule so far?

Too late for Frightfest to squeeze in THE RITUAL? UK horror being released early-October. Trailer looks great...

Discovery screen 'nepotism'.

Forgive me for being too intrusive, but it feels like a little 'nepotism' is creeping into Frightfest. It seems almost every year we see the same faces coming back for a consecutive or even three years in a row. I always thought the 'Discovery' screens were supposed to be exactly that - the opportun...

Thoughts on the schedule so far?

Think this was a pretty weak year - not just for Frightfest but horror in general - no really 'big' films or 'hyped up' films from earlier festivals, so think in respect of that, this was probably the best we were going to get unless there were any real 'coups' having world premieres. Opening night ...

Re: Movies For August 2017 Fest

Pretty good chance that CULT OF CHUCKY will be at FF? It's released in the UK in October and we obviously had CURSE OF CHUCKY a couple of years ago.

I just booked The Hub by Premier Inn Covent Garden.
Looks like we're hotel buddies. :)
Likewise, also booked in 5 nights @ The Hub, Covent Garden. Bit on the pricey side, but excellent location and looks great.

Re: Movies For August 2017 Fest

Could IT COMES AT NIGHT be in line for FF? US release date is 9th June and no UK release date confirmed. Getting lots of good reviews. Even if a UK release date isn't confirmed by then, or is a long way off, I can't see why a special advance screening wouldn't be possible unless it was going to be s...

Re: Movies For August 2017 Fest

Calibre - Two men go on a hunting trip into the Scottish Highlands where they end up fighting for survival against vengeful locals. Radius - Canadian sci-fi. After a car crash, Liam wakes up with amnesia and finds that anybody who comes within 50 feet of him dies instantly. Out of all of the films ...

Re: Movies For August 2017 Fest

Have a feeling that maybe WOODSHOCK will be on the schedule - no UK date announced and it's in the can. It's being distributed by A24 in the states and they've got a good decent track record for genre films (THE WITCH, GREEN ROOM, UNDER THE SKIN etc). Poster got released today. I bet I'm right! Sep...

Re: Discovery Screen Tickets

Good to hear that the main 700-seater screen is going to be available. If there are only two Discovery screens, and the majority of the films will be repeated in those screens, it really sounds like the schedule has been cut down quite a bit which is disappointing. To be honest though, as long as th...

Thanks for all the comments. Keep your questions coming. We will do our best to answer them for you. We will be publishing our plans for the venue in due course, but we are sorry to say, because of the move back into the West End of London ticket prices will need to go up. It's unavoidable this yea...

Re: 2017 Venue

Been to everyone since 2008 and the Empire was by far the best one but that was when screen 1 was massive with a great atmosphere before the IMAX but I'm still excited to see what this year will be like. Yep, 727 is still a lot of peeps but not the 1300 or so that there used to be. I'm sure the atm...
