Running online because of Covid-19, this year's Arrow Video FrightFest is a little smaller than usual but no less fearsome. Showcasing 25 films from 10 continents, the August part opened with Sky Sharks and the October part with Train To Busan Presents: Peninsula. Both include a range of online events and activities to help fans get into the spirit of things.
The first part of the festival ran from 28 to 31 August. The second will run from 22 to 25 October.
