New, Updates, and Screenings.
There are some amazing titles at this year’s FrightFest. As is the case every year, some will stand out more than others, and generally the main screens get it right — you will see the big ‘ones to watch‘ there. However, it would be incredibly foolish to ignore what theFrightFest discovery screens have to offer.
These smaller showings often hide some great titles too. In fact, I have found my discovery screen choices increasing year on year. I find they are a good way to watch movies you may not be aware of, or catch some that don’t always get a cinema release.
With that in mind, I’ve pulled together 6 picks which are I reckon are all worth checking out and will hopefully present something a little different. So here we are, in no particular order!
I’ll be honest, it was the poster got my attention here… It took me back to when I was a kid and those fantastically brilliant movie posters you saw.
This has that late-night, B-movie feel. It’s outrageous, offensive, bloody and brilliantly entertaining. An ode to 80’s slashers and grindhouse comedy horrors, Night Of Something Strange is based around a Sexually Transmitted Disease that wreaks chaos in a Motel during spring break.
Sounds like a great premise right? Throw in monster genitalia and orifices that bite and… well you can see where this is going. It is going to be in your face and cheesy, but there’s absolutely nothing wrong with a bit of that!
