Poster Artwork Revealed for FILM4 FRIGHTFEST 2013





film4-frightfest-2013

Top illustrator Graham Humphreys, who has been FrightFest’s poster designer since the very beginning in 2000, has revealed the artwork for FrightFest 2013.

Graham said today: “This year’s image plays with the skull of Yorick, in a parody of Hamlet and all the attendant themes of revenge, murder, ghosts and corruption. The death of celluloid is represented by the corpse in the director’s chair and the spools for brains. As it is the centennial year of Peter Cushing’s birth, his contribution to the genre is honoured with a bust and the passing of Ray Harryhausen is remembered with a glimpse of two of his creations”.

Film4 FrightFest, the UK’s biggest genre film festival, runs from Thursday 22 August to Monday 26 August at the Empire Cinema, Leicester Square. The full line up will be announced on 28 June. Festival & day passes go on sale from 29 June. Tickets for Individual films are on sale from 27 July

I love prosthetic effects, stop-motion animation and gore, but most of all I love a good story! I adore B-movies and exploitation films in many of their guises and also have a soft spot for creature features. I review a wide range of media including movies, TV series, books and videogames. I'm a massive fan of author Hunter S. Thompson and I enjoy various genre of videogames with Kingdom Hearts and Harvest Moon two of my all time favs. Currently playing: Dropsy, Hatoful Boyfriend and The Witcher 2
