Horror Channel FrightFest announces line-up for Halloween 2017 event

Horror Channel FrightFest Halloween 2017 unleashes seven choice shockers for the 7th annual West End Halloween chillorama – a wits-end wallow in all things gruesome, gory and glorious.

This year, the all-day shocktoberfest is at the Empire Haymarket on Sat Oct 28, 2017 and embraces one world, one European and five UK premieres, spanning three continents.

From the emotional making of a low-budget slasher to zombie nightmares, Gothic horrors, an outrageously strange mind cult, a sci-fi alien action extravaganza, a comic strip creature feature and the last word in Killer Clowns, this year’s line-up is an eclectic mix of the quirky, unusual and extreme.

Alan Jones, FrightFest co-director said today: “After FrightFest’s successful return to central London in August for our biggest and most acclaimed event yet, we’re pleased to announce our equally ambitious, and extended Halloween spooktacular. The line-up is a heady cocktail of horror, fantasy and sci-fi, which we hope haunts your nightmares until our Glasgow grindhouser next March”.

Attending guests will be announced shortly.

Controversial 80s horror "Suffer Little Children" comes uncut to UK DVD

Britain’s Most Controversial Horror Movie of the 80s coming to UK DVD Fully Uncut!

"Gruesome... Terrifying!" Screamed The People, "Gory Violence!" Decried The Telegraph. "As Explicitly horror as has ever been on video!" Claimed The Video Week as the British tabloid press called for it to be banned among the panic of the Video Nasty witch hunts. 

The master tapes were seized by the police. The Censors refused it a rating in its uncut form. Many of the children involved in its production were never seen nor heard from again. Now Intervision Picture Corpis proud to present SUFFER, LITTLE CHILDREN FULLY UNCUT AND UNCENSORED with exclusive new extras which finally reveal the shocking truth behind the most notorious British shot - on - video feature ever! 

For the first time in history, the murky shadows surrounding the production will be fully illuminated. At the time little was known of the production except what was cryptically scribbled on the back of the box: Suffer, Little Children : a tale of a child’s demonic supernatural powers and the brutal.... terrifying results. 

Suffer, Little Children is a reconstruction of the events, which took place at 45 Kingston Road, New Malden, Surrey, England in August 1984. None of these events were reported in the press and now the house is scheduled for demolition in the immediate future.

Carrie - Limited Edition Blu-ray on 11th December

In 1976, Stephen King’s first novel, the story of Carrie White, a troubled young girl who discovers she has telekinetic powers, was adapted for the big screen, directed by hotshot film maker Brian De Palma. It proved a massive hit, launched De Palma into the A-list of directors and led to a stampede of King films in its wake. 

To this day Carrie still has the power to thrill and shock, with its buckets of blood, split screen carnage and a killer jolt of an ending. Stars Sissy Spacek and Piper Laurie picked up Oscar nominations for their performances,and future stars such as Amy Irving, John Travolta and Nancy Allen were given their first major roles in the film. This new release of the iconic film includes extensive featurettes on the making of a horror classic, as well as a deluxe 60-page booklet on the film.
