Film4 FrightFestThe Film4 FrightFest puts the horror into this August Bank Holiday weekend with five days of screenings at the Vue West End in Leicester Square, a new venue for the festival last year. The home of horror, the festival has been running for 16 years and has rapidly grown in popularity. Audiences can expect to be scared witless with a devilishly delightful line-up of premieres, previews and special screenings of fantasy and horror films. Zombie films, cinematic apocalyptic visions of the future and revenge thrillers fill the festival with the finest films of this genre. This year's line-up includes UK premieres of Frankenstein, Inner Demon, A Christmas Horror Story and Another Me; European premieres of Cherry Tree, Tales of Halloween, Estranged and Landmine Goes Click; and world premieres of Rabid Dogs, Road Games and Curve.
