July 24, 2012, 7:15 am -- /EPR NETWORK/ -- Leicester Square's Empire Cinema will host the fourth Film4 FrightFest this August, running from the 23 rd until the 27 th of the month.
The four days of screenings include premieres, previews and special screenings of some of the best horror and fantasy films to have emerged over the past year. Organiser Paul McEvoy will once again choose his top picks which, in 20122, included Kill List, Inbred and The Theatre Bizarre.
The festival Ė which has been running since 2009 Ė has a history of talks and workshops from some of the biggest names in film (including Oscar-winning director and Olympics opening ceremony organizer Danny Boyle). The 2012 event promises to be no different.
