Annual Halloween event to feature UK premieres of Soulmate [pictured] and Nothing Left to Fear; Neil Marshall and Michael Armstrong among guests attending.
Film4 FrightFest has unveiled the full lineup for its annual Halloween all-nighter, taking place at the Vue in London’s Leicester Square for the third consecutive year on Oct 26.
The six-strong lineup features the UK premieres of Axelle Carolyn’s feature debut Soulmate, Mark Hartley’s remake of Richard Franklin’s Patrick, Marvin Kren’s The Station and Anthony Leonardi III’s Nothing Left to Fear, the first film from Slasher Films founded by Guns N’ Roses’ Slash.
A preview of Renaud Gauthier’s Discopath and a retro premiere of the restored version of Michael Armstrong’s previously banned Mark of the Devil.
Guests attended this year’s all-nighter include filmmaker Neil Marshall (who produced Soulmate), Armstrong, Gauthier and Soulmate star Anna Walton, who also starred in FrightFest 2012 opener The Seasoning House.
Alan Jones, co-director, commented: “After this year’s blockbuster Film4 FrightFest in August - the best attended and highest praised event in our 14-year history - we knew we had to make our October occasion equally as special.
“So join us in our Samhain festivities with the cream of the chiller crop, a great group of guests and the usual surprises FrightFest has become so famous for.”
As in previous years, the all-nighter will travel the country after the London event, calling at the GFT in Glasgow and the Empires in Sunderland, Newcastle and Poole on Nov 2, before hitting the Bristol Watershed on Nov 16.
The GFT and Watershed events will screen all films except for Soulmate, while the all-nighters at the three Empire cinemas will show all films except for Soulmate and Mark of the Devil.
Tickets for all events go on sale tomorrow [Oct 1] at 9am.
