As we revealed a few weeks back, the lineup of movies for this year’s Frightfest in London is completely insane, with must-watch flicks including Cult Of Chucky, Leatherface and Death Note all set to screen in August. And suffice to say, the guest-list this year is absolutely heaving.
In support of Chucky’s triumphant return to the big screen, Don Mancini and Fiona Dourif (who last visited for Curse Of Chucky back in 2013) are set to appear alongside the one and only Jennifer Tilly. They’ll be celebrating the world premiere of the movie, with the doll himself hopefully accompanying them once more.
Fellow long-timer Kane Hodder, who last attended five years ago, will be returning too, in support of filmmaker Derek Dennis Herbert, who tackled the legendary actor and stunt-man’s life story in the “remarkably honest and moving” documentary To Hell And Back: The Kane Hodder Story.
Hodder’s good buddy, and Frightfest regular, Adam Green will also be appearing with his Hatchet redux. And, making his triumphant return after ages away from the fest will be Green’s partner in crime, Joe Lynch.
Lynch is attending with the hugely-anticipated Mayhem, but that’s not all–the two are doing a live edition of their hugely popular Movie Crypt podcast just for festival attendees (miss it at your peril).
Horror Icon Barbara Crampton hasn’t been away too long (she last visited in 2015, with We Are Still Here) but her presence is always a reason to celebrate. This year, she’s back with Replace, alongside director Norbert Keil.
Directors Julien Maury and Alexandre Bustillo, of Inside fame, will be in attendance for the world premiere of horror prequel Leatherface along with cast members Vanessa Grasse, James Bloor and Jessica Madsen.
Actor Graham Skipper, who attended last year in support of the brilliant Beyond The Gates, returns with his directorial debut Sequence Break. Elsewhere, director Tyler MacIntyre will be there with his must-watch Tragedy Girls.
Suffice to say, the red carpet is going to be packed.
