Hatchet II and The Last Exorcism Confirmed for the UK’s Film4 FrightFest 2010

The tenth annual Film4 FrightFest will be held at The Empire Cinema, Leicester Square, London, 26th to 30th August 2010, and they’ve just announced their opening and closing films. Read on for the details.

The 2010 Film4 FrightFest will open with the world premiere of Adam Green’s hotly anticipated Hatchet II and will close with the European premiere of the Eli Roth-produced The Last Exorcism.

Further great news for those attending the festival includes the attendance of Roth himself along with The Last Exorcism director Daniel Stamm and producer Eric Newman.

The organisers are keeping tight-lipped on the subject of the Hatchet II guests, stating only, “We’re keeping to ourselves for the time being who in the horror icon cast list will be joining us for what will be the most exciting and shocking world premiere the West End has ever seen.” Kane Hodder, Tony Todd, and Danielle Harris, anyone? You can bet your ass at least one of them will be there!

    I just hope Adam Green and Joe Lynch do their “road to FrightFest” shorts again last years american werewolf in london skit was hilarious

    • The Woman In Black

      They are indeed! We heard about one of them already, and it’s pretty hilarious.
