Frightfest the 13th

So it's the event me and Dave have been waiting for all year... Frightfest!!!

We did it properly for the first time last year (by properly I mean all 5 days) and loved it and have been excited about this year's ever since.

Frightfest is 5 days of horror films hosted at the Empire Leicester Square but if you want a better description of what it's about please have a wander over here.

This year's Frightfest is especially important / special for me and / or anyone interested in Special Effects Make Up for a number of reasons:

  • Greg Nicotero will be there to pick up a Variety award (please tell me you know who Greg Nicotero is...if not please see here or here)
  • FrightFest will also be showing a documentary about Greg Nicotero 
  • Special Effects Artist Paul Hyett's directing debut The Seasoning House will be opening the festival tonight 
  • A number of films Paul Hyett has worked on in a SFX make up capacity will be showing over the weekend
So this is just a small portion of what I want to say about FrightFest and about the things going on / are important to me about FrightFest so I promise that at some point I will write a better post about it soon
