Friday 24th: 13:30: CORMAN’S WORLD: EXPLOITS OF A HOLLYWOOD REBEL (Scottish Premiere)

Roger Corman was the true Godfather of independent filmmaking and this multi-era defining documentary tracks the triumphant rise of the legendary writer, director, producer and distributor, widely known for his high camp, low budget, rapid fire exploitation movies of the 1950s and 60s. Corman is also a well-respected maverick, rabble-rouser and producer. He created his own production and distribution company and discovered the next generation of film greats including Martin Scorsese, Francis Ford Coppola, Peter Bogdanovich, Joe Dante, James Cameron and even Ron Howard From Corman’s first 1955 feature THE MONSTER FROM THE OCEAN FLOOR through the Edgar Allan Poe/Vincent Price horrors and Hell’s Angels flicks to his latest production DINOSHARK, all the blood and guts of his lurid and fascinating brilliance on a budget career is here illustrated by great clips and with insights from his contemporaries, students, stars – and a Jack Nicholson like you’ve never seen him before.

16:00 TAPE 407: THE MESA RESERVE INCIDENT (UK Premiere)

Gore and confusion abound when a US passenger plane crashes in a mysteriously remote and unknown area. As the handful of disbelieving survivors emerge, scared, bloody and disoriented, they soon realise their nightmare has only just begun. Subtly slipping from disaster movie to eerie horror adventure and political conspiracy theory, the frantic documentary style camerawork places you at the heart of the unfolding horror. When the plot thickens further, monstrous mayhem continues into completely unexplored areas and becomes a whirlwind ride through the strangely uninhabited Mesa Reserve compound with a twist ending to leave you breathless.

90 mins Directors: Dale Fabrigar & Evette Wallin USA 2011

Abigail Schrader – Trish

Samantha Lester – Jessie

James Lyons – Jimmy

Brendan Patrick Connor – Charlie

Melanie Lyons – Laura

18:30 CRAWL (UK Premiere)

Claustrophobic heat and brooding tension seep from the screen in this character-driven hi-tone chiller set in an unknown rural town. Seedy bar owner Slim Walding hires a mysterious Croatian hit man to murder a local garage owner over a shady business deal gone bad. The crime is indeed carried out by the stone-faced stranger but a planned double-crossing backfires when an innocent waitress (Georgina Haig) becomes involved. Much of what makes this study in slow-burning terror so nail-bitingly effective is the silence that director China employs for long periods, coupled with the deep, shadowy corners of the picture frame – and minds of the captivating lead characters.

81 mins Director: Paul China Australia 2011

George Shevtsov – The Croatian

Georgina Haig – Marilyn Burns

Paul Holmes – Slim Walding

Andy Barclay – Travis

Lynda Stoner – Eileen

21:00 THE DAY (UK Premiere)

Apocalypse has arrived and the world is a brutally dangerous place in the impressive debut feature from writer Luke Passmore. Directed by Doug Aarniokoski this mutant hunt follows a group of five survivors who are heading to greener pastures to try and find a place to plant some rare vegetable seed. They’re low on ammunition and food and one of the group is extremely sick. So they break from their usual protocol and hole up in an abandoned two-story farmhouse in the middle of nowhere. Soon, the cannibals, their mortal enemy, will come looking for prey.Visually stark as its environment, and delivering splatter kills, seat-edged suspense and visceral action, this blockade shocker is the middle instalment of a projected trilogy, THE DAY and marks the arrival of a host of new talent and an anticipated much larger holocaust hellhole vision.

90 mins Director: Doug Aarniokoski Canada 2011

Dominic Monaghan – Rick

Shawn Ashmore – Adam

Cory Hardrict – Henson

Ashley Bell – Mary

Shannyn Sossamon – Shannon

23:15 WAR OF THE DEAD (UK premiere)

In 1939 ‘anti-death’ medical experiments were performed on captured Russian soldiers by Gestapo officers in the opening salvos of World War II. Two years later allied Finnish and American forces are on a mission to seize an underground enemy bunker on the Soviet border – but they must face attack by a far deadlier force – the flesh-hungry victims of those SS experiments. Thankfully this barrage of bullets, bombs and brains is all refreshingly free of the irony and winking that has become all too common in the modern zombie flick. With a stirring soundtrack by Joel Goldsmith (son of Jerry), WAR OF THE DEAD solely concentrates on delivering wave after wave of highly satisfying, action-packed, war punk cool living dead mayhem.

85 mins Director: Marko Makilaakso Lithuania/USA/Italy 2011

Andrew Tiernan – Martin Stone

Mikko Leppilampi – Lieutenant Laakso

Samuel Vauramo – Kolyo

11:00 EVIDENCE (UK Premiere)

Ryan decides to make a documentary on his friend Brett about camping in the Los Angeles canyons. Keeping them company are girlfriends Abi and Ashley and it all starts off well around the campfire with a few drinks. But then the noises start, weird carvings are glimpsed on trees, a naked person is seen running away and something seems to be following them… It’s then the full horror is thrown at you relentlessly, until the very last frame of the incredible end credits sequence. Harrowing and uncompromising, forget everything you think that you know about the ‘found footage’ genre. None of it is applicable here. Just take the chill ride, let your mind be blown and try and catch your breath.

80 mins Director: Howie Askins USA 2011

Abigail Richie – Abi

Ashley Bracken – Ashley

Brett Rosenberg – Brett

Ryan McCoy – Ryan

Keith Lewis – Lone Wolf

13:15 PENUMBRA (UK premiere)

Now they are proud to present the director’s latest bold experiment into creeping paranoia with a nasty twist. Marga, an arrogant businesswoman from Spain is on a business assignment in Buenos Aires – she must find a new tenant for her family’s decrepit apartment. But what’s behind the décor signals a startling fate worse than death. PENUMBRA (or GLOOM in direct translation) is a superbly realized horror entry from the Argentine talent rapidly becoming a genre powerhouse all to himself.

Camila Bordonaba – Victoria

Berta Muniz – Jorge Kepler

Arnaldo Andre – Salva

However in 2008 something happened to halt the catalogue of terror and this glossy, gruesome and gory urban legend tells that story. But as a murderous lunatic goes about the seasonal business of selecting victims for the monster housed in his cellar, four sleazy criminals are planning an audacious kidnap from a nearby estate. As one-to-watch first-time writer/director director Padraig Reynolds intercuts both stories, giving away more shocking details in each phase, it’s only a matter of time before the two collide and all hell breaks loose.

What happens next will change Gaia’s life forever and the entire destiny of planet Earth.

Despite all the inherent problems involved, an elite SWAT force led by hard-ass cop Rama tries to bring down its defences and penetrate its core.

A Psychocinematic Ritual: OV, Psychogeographical Commission and The Wyrding ModuleN/C 18+

Dates Showing:
Thursday 23 February
Show Times:
20:00
After their spectacular warm-up for Italian horror soundtrack legends Goblin at last year’s festival, occult project OV returns for a much-anticipated evening of live experience – this time using ritual, coincidence, numerology and a hefty dose of magick to explore both the beauty and cruelty of war. An unsettling collaboration between members of Desalvo, Unwinding Hours and Sons and Daughters, OV was born from a shared fascination with the occult, magick and the otherworldly. Performing live film soundtracks alongside intriguing visuals, prepare to be reminded of the power of music and cinema to shock and disturb.

I made a very quick ical calendar for Glasgow and thought it might be of use to others. (I put in 2 hours for each film but this was just for speed, most will be shorter I imagine)

If I go it will only be the Friday as we head off on our honeymoon on the Sunday.

Can I get tickets for single films?

FrightFest Glasgow guests announced

Post by iomega » Fri Feb 10, 2012 4:08 pm

The most guest-tastic Glasgow event ever. This year, not only do we have more choice chiller movies than before, we have more celebrity visitors than ever. CRAWL director Paul China and his producer brother Ben who are travelling from Australia. Antonio and Marco Manetti the directors of L’ARRIVO DI WANG/THE ARRIVAL OF WANG. Padraig Reynolds, director of the shocker fantasy RITES OF SPRING and Gareth Evans, director of THE RAID. Finally, Federico Zampaglione, the Italian Rob Zombie, is bringing over the opening sequence of his new giallo horror TULPA to show in public for the very first time. And who knows what other little surprises we may have up our sleeves.
