As mentioned in another story today that debuted some early images from the horror anthology Little Deaths, the Film 4 FrightFest Weekend as part of the Glasgow Film Festival is upon us, and we’ve got the full lineup of films our friends in the UK get to feast upon on Friday, Feb. 25th, and Saturday, Feb. 26th.
From the Film 4 FrightFest Weekend Website:
With the best possible array of current and forthcoming genre delights, here is the full list of the treats we have in store for you North of the Border in a packed program of premieres and previews to shake and shock your sensibilities way into 2011.
We are opening with the world premiere of the eagerly awaited anthology LITTLE DEATHS, mixing sex and shocks from the dark and disturbed minds of three bright UK talents – Sean Hogan, Simon Rumley and Andrew Parkinson – who will all be joining us for this special event.
We continue with the latest Korean masterpiece from Kim Ji-woon, the controversial serial killer sensation I SAW THE DEVIL, premiering in all its uncut gory glory.
Our late Friday night treat is the unmissable documentary MACHETE MAIDENS UNLEASHED! Have your notepads at the ready as you’ll be gagging to see the films featured in this all-out sex and violence celebration of Filipino genre movies from the Not Quite Hollywood team.
Saturday sees us rolling out the killer tire and exploding head Cannes sensation RUBBER. We follow this with a trip into darker genre territory with the shocking TERRITORIES from the producer of The Horde.
Following these is the played strictly straight horror from the Jack Brooks: Monster Slayer creators as we enter THE SHRINE. Rebecca De Mornay will then have us shrieking in our seats with the remixed remake of MOTHER’S DAY from Darren Lynn Bousman.
Bringing the house down fresh from its Sundance premiere will be the Grindhouse inspired bloody explosion of HOBO WITH A SHOTGUN with Rutger Hauer on his raucous rampage.
The event will be chock-full of surprises, giveaways, and all those things you have come to expect from the FrightFest team.
Tickets are £48 for an event pass to see all eight films or £7.50 to see any individual film. Full details on how to get your tickets can be found here.
Be sure to also keep on eye on the official Glasgow Film Festival website as their full programme will be launched tomorrow, 20 January.
