FrightFest Presents adds three more horror titles for VOD release
Staff Reporter | On 11, Sep 2015
FrightFest Presents has added three more horror titles to its slate.
The banner, which is a joint initiative between Icon Film Distribution and the film festival, will release a range of horror flicks on digital platforms, including iTunes and Amazon Instant Video.
The initial line-up was announced on the opening day of the 2015 festival, with titles including Steve Oram’s AAAAAAAAH!, The Sand, AfterDeath, Landmine Goes Click, The Lesson, Estranged and Emelie. All of them had a UK theatrical premiere at the five-day event over the August Bank Holiday weekend, with some, such as AAAAAAAAH!, going on to tour cinemas around the country.
Now, three more titles have been added to the collection: Night Of The Living Deb, which stars Maria Thayer as a woman who is caught up in a zombie apocalypse after a one-night stand; Some Kind Of Hate, which follows a bullied teen who summits the spirit of a dead girl to wreak revenge; and Last Girl Standing, which sees a girl attempt to rebuild her life after her friends are murdered.
“We are thrilled and delighted to be working with Icon in bringing a diverse range of top tier genre titles to the UK audience,” Paul McEvoy, Co-Director of FrightFest, said in an earlier statement.
Sophie Wong, Head of TV and Digital Sales for IFD, added: “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.”
While the banner will launch officially on Monday 19th October, FrightFest Presents has not confirmed release dates for any of the movies.
