Whilst hanging out at the Korean Film Festival yesterday Londonist was shocked to hear that annual Fright Fest is moving venues this year. For as long as we can remember we've been deprived of sleep and scared the bejesus out of by our favourite horror fest at the Prince Charles. It seems that the whole shebang is now moving over to Screen One at the Odeon West End. Crap.
There is one last chance to huddle on the Prince Charles balcony with fellow weirdos wearing Halloween t-shirts though. On the 28th of May Frightfest is presenting a one day event that will include a preview of The League of Gentleman's Apocalypse complete with the League themselves on stage to introduce the movie and stick around afterwards for a Q&A.
Opening the day at 11am is From Beyond the Grave - an absolute corker of an anthology movie with Peter Cushing. It's the one with Ian (The Saint) Ogilvy buying the old door that once hung opens up into a room from the 1600's complete with dusty Cavalier zombie. R-Point is a Korean war/horror movie hybrid that we hear is a cross between Apocalypse Now and The Thing. American indie Shallow Ground and Rob Zombie's Deliverance style The Devil's Rejects are also screening along with the Royston Vasey movie.
There's also a surprise screening: It's big, it's something you are all dying to see, it stars action heroes and cult icons and it would be wrong to miss it. We're keeping our fingers crossed for THIS, but we couldn't be that lucky could we?
Find out along with us by booking your tickets or the preferred all day pass (they've been on sale from May 1st so grab the phone now). Full details on the Fright Fest site.
