We are delighted to welcome back FrightFest for its 19th year at GFF, as they take over GFT’s Cinema 1 from 7th to 9th March.

The legendary three-day horror binge showcases 11 new feature films from eight countries, spanning three continents and embracing two world premieres, eight UK premieres and one Scottish premiere. World premieres include Mom, a striking, provocative and consuming psychological horror starring Schitt’s Creek Emily Hampshire; and Custom, a paranoid horror thriller from award-winning, Brazilian-born and UK-based filmmaker Tiago Teixeira.

FrightFest kicks off with UK Premiere You’ll Never Find Me, a claustrophobic two-hander set in an Australian RV Park starring Brendan Rock as a lonely man and Jordan Cowan as a mysterious woman who knocks at his door late one night, and wraps up with the UK premiere of hard-hitting diner-invasion thriller Last Straw, marking Alan Scott Neal’s directorial debut.

Other highlights include All You Need is Death, with Irish writer-director Paul Duane drawing from the earlier works of Ben Wheatley and Peter Strickland and delves into ethno-musicology in this unique, unsettling cautionary folk horror; Kill Your Lover, an uncompromising and wild body horror from debut co-directors Alix Austin and Keir Siewert; The Deep Dark, from Mahieu Turi (Hostile), following a veteran miner and a professor who find themselves underground and up against an ancient mutant that craves blood; Mike Hermosa’s riotous monster comedy The Invisible Raptor featuring an invisible genetically-engineered prehistoric raptor on the loose; and the safety of a community left in the hands of a palaeontologist and security guard. Wake Up, a fresh take on the slasher genre where classic adrenaline-fueled horror and Gen Z environmental issues collide in one twisted night from hell, comes courtesy of RKSS (the directorial collective behind Turbo Kid and Summer of ’84); and Federico Zampaglione’s (Shadow, Tulpa: Demon of Desire) The Well, is an extreme supernatural chiller starring Lauren LaVera, fresh from her eye-catching lead in the Terrifier 2.

Alongside the main programme, FrightFest will present World premieres of two shorts from up-and-coming Scottish filmmakers: Mouse, a pin-sharp stalker thriller from Ewan J Fletcher, and Subject 73 a twisty morality tale from Reiff Gaskell.
