The August Bank Holiday weekend means only one thing for the UK’s diehard horror fans - FrightFest. Run by the unholy trinity of Paul McEvoy, Alan Jones and Ian Rattray, the festival showcases the best new genre releases from around the globe with last year’s event featuring the good (Wolf Creek, P), the bad (The Neighbor No.13, Day Of The Dead 2: Contagium), and the just plain crazy (Evil Aliens, Marebito).
It has also secured personal appearances from the likes of George A. Romero, Greg Nicotero, Jake West, Greg McLean and a memorable – for all the wrong reasons - live satellite link up with Hideo Nakata. Now in its seventh year, 2006 saw FrightFest raise its profile even further by taking over the largest screen at the Odeon West End in London’s Leicester Square.
The whole Eat My Brains team were on hand for the whole weekend, along with regular contributor Soulmining, to deliver all the latest news and reviews from the UK’s biggest and best genre festival.
