London FrightFest

With the success of horror films such as Shaun of the Dead, Zombie Strippers and 28 Days Later, British horror is making a name for itself worldwide and London's horror fans have started to become more prominent, with the introduction of the London FrightFest Film Festival in 2000. Held on the August Bank Holiday Weekend each year, the capital is invaded by enthusiastic, bloodthirsty cinephiles eager to see the gory new offerings from up and coming and established filmmakers worldwide. 

 

Horror fans can be a cliquey bunch, but the weekend is very fan friendly with plenty of camaraderie amongst attendees, who all share one common goal, to get as spooked and grossed out as possible. Many attendees come in elaborate costumes, making this a great photo opportunity and the event's founders, film producer Paul McEvoy, film distributor Ian Rattray, film journalist Alan Day and film and TV PR Greg Day, are all heavily involved in the weekend. As die-hard horror fans themselves, they are eager to talk to attendees and get feedback on how they can improve the festival or receive any critique or praise, so be sure to offer your opinion if you run into them!

 

As the name suggests, the festival is dedicated to the horror genre, with a few exceptions where genres are blurred. Films such as Scary Movie, Pan's Labyrinth, Ginger Snaps, Ring 2, Halloween: Resurrection, House of 1,000 Corpses and Let the Right One In have all premiered at the festival and renowned horror directors such as Eli Roth, Rob Zombie, Dario Argento, Danny Boyle and Sam Raimi have all made appearances and had special nights dedicated to their films. Stars from horror movies, including Jessica Alba, have also attended the event to sign memorabilia and take part in Q&A sessions. The festival also has a range of talks, the FrightFest quiz and screenings of teaser trailers for large releases.

 

FrightFest may not be quite as sophisticated as the BFI London Film Festival, but it's definitely much more fun and a must for any horror fans. Attendees can also purchase horror memorabilia and post in a public forum to share their views with other horror fans. FrightFest events are held in venues throughout London but the bulk of the festival takes place at Empire cinema in Leicester Square, a lively part of central London, close to sights, attractions and nightlife. Leicester Square is a fantastic place to stay whilst visiting the city, it is pricier than many other areas, but for the convenience of having London on your doorstep you won't mind paying a bit extra. The Radisson Edwardian Leicester Square offers trendy modern rooms. The Best Western Premier Shaftesbury Piccadilly Hotel offers a mix of traditional style and decadent contemporary rooms. The Strand Palace Hotel offers reasonably priced rooms close to London's Theatreland district, along the Strand, and Royal Horseguards offers 5-star luxury, with stunning antique design features.
