Not content with running the UK's premier horror / fantasy film festival in London every August Bank Holiday, the Frightfest team are now taking their event on the road, and tickets are now on sale for their special one day Glasgow event which takes place at the Glasgow Filmhouse on Saturday 17th February.
The terrible trio of Alan Jones (UK horror journalist), Ian Rattray (film programmer) and Paul McEvoy (The Cinema Store) always come up with the latest and greatest in subversive cinema and Glasgow's event is certainly no exception.
In total, there will be five films screening, four UK premieres and one 'classic' retro screening;
The Tripper (Dir: David Arquette)
A crazed madman obsessed with Ronald Reagan goes on a killing spree at a hippy festival.
S&Man (Dir: JT Petty)
A documentary about voyeurs and filmmakers in the underground world of horror cinema. (The title is pronounced 'Sandman'.)
The Messengers (Dir: Pang Brothers)
Strained relationships as a family relocate from the big city to a run-down sunflower farm, from the Asian masters of style over content.
Turistas (Dir: John Stockwell)
Backpacking holiday nightmare from the director of Into The Blue and Blue Crush - so expect plenty of bikinis and speedos!
Motel Hell (Dir: Kevin Connor)
Retro screening of this 80's classic about a bloke who kills travellers and turns them into fritters.
Tickets are priced at £20 for the full day or £6 for individual films. See ya there!
