Horror Channel FrightFest have unveiled their stunning artwork for this year’s annual horror Bank Holiday event,created by Graham Humphrey.
The UK’s largest celebration of genre cinema, taking place at the Vue Shepherd’s Bush, between Thursday August 25 until Monday August 29.with the relocation to Shepherd’s Bush was the inspiration behind the concept.
Graham explains: “This year’s relocation suggested the idea of a floating cinema that can move through the city. Going west, I took it all the way to Louisiana, as portrayed in the film ‘Southern Comfort’. reimagining London as a swampland. I took my cues from a variety of sources; the ‘feu follet’ (will-o’-the-wisp) are mentioned in George Washington Cable’s short story ‘Jean-ah Poquelin’, the paddle steamer was inspired by the work of Mark Twain and the skulls from the script of Orson Welles’ unmade ‘Heart Of Darkness’. There’s also a nod to Hertzog’s ‘Fitzcarraldo’. The witch house I added for extra Scooby-Doo points!”
Horror Channel Fright Fest will next week announce it’s full line up. 1st July is the important date for Frightfesters and as ever we will share that line up here. For ticket information please head over to Frightfest Ticket site.
