Christina Ricci in ‘Monstrous’

Christina Ricci-led supernatural thriller Monstrous and Christopher Lee Parson’s debut A Cloud So High are among the 12 films in the line-up for UK horror festival Glasgow FrightFest, running from March 10-12.

Monstrous receives its international premiere, and tells the story of a mother and son who flee an abusive husband only to encounter a more terrifying monster. Christina Ricci stars in the supernatural thriller, directed by Chris Sivertson.

Christopher Lee Parson’s directorial debut A Cloud So High has its world premiere at the event. It stars The Deer Hunter’s John Savage as a disgraced ex-cop father who clashes with his troubled 22-year-old war veteran son.

The event is a spin-off of FrightFest, the genre event which takes place in London each August.
