The newly updated website FrightFest Insider (click here) has now confirmed that two films from this yearís August event - Ti Westís low-budget 'bats-in-the-barn' horror The Roost and Craig Strachanís Scottish teen werewolf tale Wild Country - have now both secured UK theatrical distribution and DVD releases early next year.
The Roost has been picked up by Revolver Entertainment and will hit the cinema screens (well, the ICA cinema at least) in January 2006, before becoming the fifth title to be released from the new FrightFest Presents DVD label, alongside Dead Meat, Malefique, Tears of Kali and Eyes of Crystal.
Wild Country was one of the surprise hits of this yearís FrightFest, and itís largely thanks to Ian Rattray and Ros Borland of Gabriel Films that a theatrical release has been achieved. Opening on at least ten screens in London and Scotland, expect to see the beast when it is let loose in cinemas on February 24th.
