Film4 FrightFest Website
Every year the good folks behind the UK’s premier horror film festival, Film4 FrightFest, unveil a completely badass poster to go along with the equally as badass event. This year is no different! Check out the goodies right here!
From the Press Release
Top illustrator Graham Humphreys, who has been FrightFest’s poster designer since the very beginning in 2000, has revealed the artwork for FrightFest 2013.
Graham said today: “This year’s image plays with the skull of Yorick in a parody of Hamlet and all the attendant themes of revenge, murder, ghosts and corruption. The death of celluloid is represented by the corpse in the director’s chair and the spools for brains. As it is the centennial year of Peter Cushing’s birth, his contribution to the genre is honoured with a bust, and the passing of Ray Harryhausen is remembered with a glimpse of two of his creations”.
Film4 FrightFest, the UK’s biggest genre film festival, runs from Thursday 22 August to Monday 26 August at the Empire Cinema, Leicester Square. The full lineup will be announced on 28 June. Festival and day passes go on sale from 29 June. Tickets for individual films are on sale from 27 July.
