The first six films from FrightFest Presents, the new joint venture between the UK’s leading horror fantasy film festival and Icon Film Distribution, have been launched in the UK.
The exclusive Icon and FrightFest partnership, first announced in April, will see titles released across the UK and Ireland via the distributor’s digital partners (including TheHorrorShow.TV), giving film fans instant access to some of their favourite FrightFest titles.
Paul McEvoy, co-director of FrightFest says, “We are thrilled and delighted to be working with Icon in bringing a diverse range of top tier genre titles to the UK audience. These and our other exciting forthcoming titles brilliantly showcase the breadth and quality of work being produced in the worldwide fear and fantasy arena.” Sophie Wong, Icon’s head of TV and digital sales, adds: “We have had a great response from our digital partners to the FrightFest Presents label and the collection of titles; a really strong indication of the market potential for genres with committed fans who are allied to an established brand.”
Among the six titles to be released under the FrightFest banner are:
Aaaaaaaah!, the world premiere and feature directorial debut of Steve Oram, co-writer and star of Ben Wheatley’s cult UK hit Sightseers.
The Sand, a creature feature directed by Isaac Gabaett and starring Mitchel Musso (Monster House).
AfterDeath, a sci fi-horror from directors Gez Medinger and Robin Schmidt.
Estranged, a sinister psychological thriller from director Adam Levins (Population Zero).
Some Kind of Hate, a haunting revenge thriller.
Night of the Living Deb, a rom-zom-com in the vein of Warm Bodies and Life After Beth.
