Frightfest 2013 Preview: BIG BAD WOLVES, THE AMERICAN SCREAM, Ident Competition Winners & More!

The August bank holiday is almost upon us here in old London town, which of course means that Film4 Frightfest is almost here as well! At the Empire Cinema in Leicester Square, from Thursday August 22nd to Monday August 26th, audiences will be enjoying some of the best in new horror film from around the world. Here's a small sampling; some of the films have been reviewed on Twitch; others are ones Twitch has been anticipating.

In addition, the winners of the TURN YOUR BLOODY PHONE OFF competition were announced. Mike Tack, Holomax, Moneky Brains Productions, Paul While and David Scullion made idents designed to, ahem, 'encourage' patrons to turn off their mobiles during screenings. The festival has also recruited some friends (directors whose work has been featured at past festivals) to make some as well, which will be seen throughout the festival.
