FrightFest 2016 lineup announced

Post by bacchus » Fri Jul 01, 2016 2:05 pm

Very happy that THE WOODS and 31 are included, but very disappointed that DON'T BREATHE isn't in the lineup which I thought would be nailed on. Overall, I'm 50/50 on the lineup, quite a few hyped up films from various other festivals that would suit FrightFest perfectly aren't included that I was really hoping for. Hopefully there are a few hidden gems in there.

But I like the sound of:

THE UNKINDNESS OF RAVENS
THE CHAMBER
MERCY
ABATTOIR
MONOLITH

I'll be doing a one-day ticket this year. Just trying to decide which day to go for.

Currently thinking of the Saturday just because of THE WOODS, but I think I need to research the other films. I don't want to end up going along to the day that has all the 'We'll allow you to show {good film} provided you also take {token crap movies} too' day.

Anyone see any particularly strong day standing out?

Think I'm with you on that one, was going for a full weekend pass but think I'm just going to go for 2-3 days now. Saturday is a definite with THE WOODS. Sunday has 31. And Monday has a couple of smaller films I want to see like MONOLITH. Probably going to go for day passes Saturday/Sunday/Monday.

In hindsight, pretty disappointed with the bigger film selections. Was really hoping for films like DON'T BREATHE, THE WAITING, CARNAGE PARK, I AM NOT A SERIAL KILLER, DETOUR and numerous other hyped up films from Sundance, Cannes etc.

Do we have screens & times somewhere?

Probably going to have to miss a few early/late showings this year because of the location change... need info to work out which screen to pick.

Hi all,

I've put together a handy clashfinder page to help people work out their clashes & choose which of the main screens is best for them to fit in with Discovery Screen choices, and pick their absolutely ideal festival.

It's fully customizable and allows up to 4 different schedules to be created per computer (with each having their own colour, so you can compare). You can then print out your ideal schedule.

I'll update it with more accurate film lengths as soon as possible, and continue adding events and information when we hear about it.

Hope it helps.
