Film4’s Frightfest Festival, which starts over August Bank Holiday weekend, has today announced some of the special guests who will be in attendance at this year’s festival.
Out of those attending, biggest of all is legendary Scream Queen Barbara Crampton as the festival’s special “guest icon”. Crampton stars in four films in the festival this year, including WE ARE STILL HERE, ROAD GAMES and SUN CHOKE plus makes a cameo appearance in TALES OF HALLOWEEN. All the films will be introduced by Crampton, as well as talking in a special Q&A with Frightfest’s Alan Jones on Sunday, August 30th at 9.15pm.
On her festival appearance, Crampton said: “To say that I am overjoyed, excited and eager to attend FrightFest as a guest is putting it mildly. This festival has been on my radar for some time and to be included and have four films screening is a welcome nightmare from which I hope never to wake”.
In addition to Crampton, other familiar faces who will be in attendance this year are musician Rick Wakeman, actors James Cosmo and Toyah Willcox, as well as directors Neil Marshall and Bernard Rose. You can check out all of the latest apperances and the full festival line-up at the Film4 FrightFest 2015 website.
