Be prepared to feast on a chilling cornucopia of savage shocks, unsettling surprises and devilish delights as the UK’s favourite horror fantasy event returns to the Glasgow Film Festival for its 13th year. Dates are Thursday 1st to Saturday 3rd March.
With our bold choices, the quality of our programme and the special relationship developed with our distinguished guests, FrightFest is once again positioned to deliver silver screen shocks and surprises at our beloved second home in Glasgow.
Horror has just had its biggest and most successful year, and if you’ve ever attended one of our events before, you’ll know exactly why. FrightFest will always create a communal space where the pure enjoyment of horror and fantasy is paramount and a vital shared experience. Welcome to our Pleasure Dome, FrightFest style.
Thursday 1st March
A special screening of Andy Nyman and Jeremy Dyson’s smash hit phenomenon GHOST STORIES kicks off proceedings followed by the Scottish premiere of Brian O’Malley’s supernatural romance THE LODGERS. This masterful Irish set Gothic ghost story stars Charlotte Vega and David Bradley.
Friday 2nd March
Our Friday line-up lunges into vampiric action with the UK premiere of Dragos Buliga’s THE WANDERERS: QUEST OF THE DEMON HUNTER, followed by the world premiere of writer/director Kelly Greene’s pastiche gem ATTACK OF THE BAT MONSTERS. If you liked The Love Witch, you'll love this. The UK premiere of THE RAVENOUS from writer/director Robin Aubert’s surreal and wickedly humorous addition to the Living Dead canon starts off Friday evening followed by the UK premiere of the powerfully gripping COLD SKIN. At the vanguard of French extreme cinema, director Xavier Gens made his name with Frontiere(s) and The Divide. Now he brings us a stunning adaptation of Albert Sánchez Piñol’s acclaimed novel that’s part H.P. Lovecraft and part Joseph Conrad. Rounding off the evening is the European premiere of PRIMAL RAGE, a creature feature that blows the lid off traditional Bigfoot mythology.
