“Sadly, we won’t be able to come together and celebrate our 21st year in the summer but rest assured, we will make our London Halloween event one to remember,” said co-director Alan Jones. “FrightFest has always been about the genre community joining together, not just to embrace films but to demonstrate our unique spirit of supportive closeness.”
Artist Graham Humphreys gave fans a look at his poster art for the event which depicts the pandemic in classic Monster art form.
“The image presented a huge challenge,” said Humphreys in a press release. “Not only had the pandemic erased any hope of a regular FrightFest schedule, but the possibility of a Halloween event needed to be addressed. This year’s monster needed to consider his Covid-19 response with a mask and goggles. The poster for ‘Halloween II’ inspired a way to present the full face without risking infection! Is the bat his friendly familiar – or the bringer of pestilence? You decide!”
Details on dates, venues, films and ticketing for the Halloween event will be made available in due course.
