FrightFest, the UK’s No.1 horror fantasy event, which returns to the Glasgow Film Festival for its 19th year from Thursday, 7th to Saturday, 9th March 2024, is pleased to announce the talent that will grace the Glasgow Film Theatre stage.

Schitt’s Creek and The Rig star Emily Hampshire will host the World Premiere of MOM, alongside the film’s director Adam O’Brien. Emily not only stars in the film but is also Executive Producer.

We will also have mega-genre talent Lauren LaVera in the house. The star of Terrifier 2 and the forthcoming Terrifier 3 will present her latest terrifying movie, THE WELL, alongside Italian director Federico Zampaglione.

Abigail Hardingham will also be joining us. The star of The Missing and Nina Forever is here for the World Premiere of CUSTOM, a passion project in which she stars and co-produces. The film’s director, Tiago Taixeira, making his impactful feature film debut, will also be attending, as will the film’s co-star Samantha Steel.

The dynamic filmmaker duo Alix Austin and Keir Siewert are also making their feature film debut with KILL YOUR LOVER. They will be in Glasgow, alongside key cast members Paige Gilmour and Fair City’s Shane Quigley-Murphy.

The monster may be invisible, but the talent behind THE INVISIBLE RAPTOR is not. Joining us are writer, lead actor, and producer Mike Capes and actor David Shackleford.

The genre is currently blessed with emerging new auteurs, and we’re thrilled to welcome two talented directors into the fold - Paul Duane, director of ALL YOU NEED IS DEATH and Alan Scott Neal, director of LAST STRAW.
