“The Woodstock of Gore” - Guillermo Del Toro
The objective of FrightFest, now in its 22nd year, is to provide the UK with a fantasy and horror festival of similar stature to the market leaders in Europe such as Sitges (Spain) and Brussels (Belgium) and in North America with Fantasia (Canada) and Fantastic Fest (USA). FrightFest has evolved into a community where audiences and guests alike travel from all over the world to be part of the event’s unique atmosphere.
“FrightFest is, without doubt, the warmest, most passionate festival on the block” - Total Film Mag.
