From the Press Release:
Paul Hyett’s claustrophobic psychological horror THE SEASONING HOUSE is set to open this year’s Film4 FrightFest. Starring Sean Pertwee, Kevin Howarth and Rosie Day, this hard-hitting exploration of war-time sexploitation, set in a Balkan brothel, marks special-effects guru Hyett’s directorial debut. Hyett and the cast will be attending the premiere on Thursday, August 23rd.

Film4 FrightFest will close with the world premiere of Lionsgate’s TOWER BLOCK. Directed by James Nunn and Ronnie Thompson, this is a stunning suspense shocker. Trapped on the top floor of their rundown East End home, a disparate group of neighbours are being targeted by a mystery sniper. This taut gripper stars Sheridan Smith, Jack O’Connell and Russell Tovey. The directors and the cast will attend this fabulous finale to FrightFest the 13th.

Film4 FrightFest co-director Alan Jones said today, “Once more Film4 FrightFest is delighted to be showcasing the key British talent of the future with our opening choice of THE SEASONING HOUSE and our closing film, TOWER BLOCK. Both films are works of quality, sensitivity and bloody-minded bravado, and the directors deserve to follow in the footsteps of such other talents we have promoted early in their careers, Christopher Nolan, Neil Marshall, Chris Smith and James Watkins”.

Film4 FrightFest is pleased to announce the line-up will also include the UK premiere of [REC] 3: Génesis, in which the [REC] myth gets brilliantly expanded by director Paco Plaza in this gruesomely hilarious second sequel in the groundbreaking Spanish zombie franchise. Both Paco and his leading lady, Leticia Dolera, will be attending the screening.

Currently on DVD, Blu-ray, VOD, and Shudder is the dark horror-comedy Better Watch Out (review), and to kick off your week while keeping you in the holiday spirit, we have an exclusive clip for you to stuff in your stocking!

The critically acclaimed horror-comedy Better Watch Out debuted on Blu-ray Combo Pack and DVD December 5 from Well Go USA Entertainment.

Bonus materials include a making-of featurette and a special insert holiday card.

Better Watch Out has a runtime of approximately 89 minutes and is rated R for disturbing violent content, language throughout, crude sexual references, drug and alcohol use – all involving teens.

Synopsis:
This holiday season you may be home, but you’re not alone… In this fresh and gleefully twisted spin on home-invasion horror, babysitter Ashley (Olivia DeJonge) must defend her young charges (Levi Miller, Ed Oxenbould ) when intruders break into the house one snowy night – or so she thinks.
