Chloë Levine, Barbara Crampton, Andy Nyman and Jeremy Dyson among Frightfest guests

Two more films added to line-up

by Jennie Kermode


The full Arrow Video Frightfest guest list was announced today, including big names like Barabara Crampton and Fabio Frizzi and popular TV stars like Andy Nyman and Jeremy Dyson. Director Jenn Wexler and star Chloë Levine will be there to discuss opening film The Ranger, and attendees can also look forward to meeting the formidable Mexican Issa Lopez, who not only directed the highly acclaimed Tigers Are Not Afraid but braved the Beast from the East to accompany the Frightfest contingent to the Glasgow Film Festival earlier this year.

Imitation Girl's Lauren Ashley Carter and White Chamber's Paul Aviary and Shauna McDonald will also be present, along with François Simard, Anouk Whissell and Yoann-Karl Whissell for the eagerly awaited Summer Of 84. Aislinn Clark will introduce The Devil's Doorway and Justin McConnell will talk about his new film Lifechanger - and that's just the tip of the iceberg at a festival known for bringing fans and filmmakers together en masse.

Two new additions to the film line-up were also announced today. David Barker's Pimped promises a shocking tale of erotic transgression, and there will be a 4K big screen restoration re-release for John Carpenter classic Halloween.

Frightfest tickets go on sale from this Saturday, 21 July.
