Do you mean films you'd like to see cos you missed them at the time, or just any 25, even if you've seen them already?

I like the fact we both have Giallo in our line ups!!

Your Sunday is very dark...

Hope more Frightfesters put forward their suggestions.

Here's mine.

As I'm new to FrightFest and generally only see the more mainstream horror (my favourites being extreme horror, Martyrs-style, good kills, and comedy-horror).
I've also included some from this year, bit cheeky but I had to fill it out with things i'm excited about in a month :-)
Oh yeah, and there are several choices for some slots, couldn't pick!

Also, I could only go back to 2011 for programmes.... looking at other people's suggestions I would certainly add:

Severance
Old Boy
Donnie Darko
Pan’s Labrynth
Battle Royale
Wolf Creek
Audition

THURSDAY
1 CULT OF CHUCKY
2 FINAL DESTINATION 5 / COCKNEYS VS ZOMBIES / CURSE OF CHUCKY
3 ZOMBEAVERS / STUNG

FRIDAY
1 LATE PHASES
2 THE GREEN INFERNO
3 V/H/S
4 REC3
5 TUCKER & DALE VS EVIL / LEATHERFACE
6 STITCHES

SATURDAY
1 TROLL HUNTER
2 OUTPOST 2
3 BAIT
4 THE BABADOOK
5 UPGRADE
6 WRONG TURN 4

SUNDAY
1 TROLL HUNTER
2 THE MAN WHO KILLED HITLER AND THEN THE BIGFOOT
3 STAGE FRIGHT
4 TERRIFIED
5 KILL LIST
6 TIGERS ARE NOT AFRAID

I tend to think that days should be arranged:
First film of the day - An easy watch or something crowd pleasing
Afternoon film - People are coming back from lunch so nothing too disgusting
Late afternoon film - Good slot for the darkest, nastiest offerings, as it will be buffered by other films so that people don't leave a day on a downer.
Early evening film - The more divisive films can go here.
Late evening film - The prestige slot, reserved for the best and must-see offerings.
Midnight film - Something crazy/action packed/filled with jump scares to keep people awake.

I tried to alternate foreign language and English language films and mix it up, so there were no points where there are two films of the same subgenre together. I'm only including films that played at the main Frightfest.

Thursday
Tucker & Dale vs Evil
Oldboy
Sinister

Friday
The Host
The Babadook
Sleep Tight
Kill List
El Orfanato
Pitch Black

Saturday
Video nasties: Moral panic, censorship and videotape
Time Crimes
Mum & Dad
The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo
Ginger Snaps
Train to Busan

Sunday
Let the Right One In
Trick ‘r Treat
Antikörper
Better Watch Out
Battle Royale

Monday
The Happiness of the Katakuris
One Hour Photo
Martyrs
Cheap Thrills
Pan’s Labyrinth
