Horror Channel Celebrate FrightFest 2019 With Bumper Horror Season This August 2019





To celebrate FrightFest 2019, taking place in London during the August Bank Holiday, Horror Channel is dedicating thirteen nights to past festival hits. Amongst the twenty-six fearsome favourites, the channel will kick off the season with the UK TV premiere of Howard J. Ford & Jonathan Ford’s India-based zombie road movie THE DEAD 2, the follow-up to their hugely popular African zombie adventure THE DEAD. There is also a UK TV premiere for Jonathan Ford’s OFFENSIVE. Produced by brother Howard, this is a dark, violent tale of generational rage and revenge set in rural France.

There are also channel premieres for Julian Gilbey’s harrowing British survival shocker, A LONELY PLACE TO DIE, starring Melissa George and Ed Speelers; Lucky McKee and Chris Sivertson’s wickedly ghoulish subversion of the sex comedy high school movie, ALL CHEERLEADERS DIE; and the Goetz Brothers’ powerful 2015 version of Pascal Laugier’s Sadean masterpiece, MARTYRS.

The diabolical double bills are on every night from August 16th – 28th, starting from 9pm, and feature such FrightFest crowd-pleasing classics as Eli Roth’s notorious post-modern celebration of the Italian cannibal genre, THE GREEN INFERNO; Christopher Smith’s hilariously shocking SEVERANCE, starring Danny Dyer and Andy Nyman; and Ti West’s The Shining slacker-style indie sensation, THE INNKEEPERS. There’s also Dominic Brunt’s outrageous and hilarious satire ATTACK OF THE ADULT BABIES, starring a whole host of TV favourites including Kate Coogan, Charlie Chuck and Sally Dexter; Adam Green’s slasher spoof favourite HATCHET, starring horror icons Kane Hodder, Robert Englund and Tony Todd; and everyone’s favourite bserial-killer doll is reaping more murder and mayhem in Don Mancini’s CURSE OF CHUCKY.

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: GTA Online & Mortal Kombat 11
