The Film Festival: FrightFest

Don't Be Afraid of the Dark, Katie Holmes

According to research that we don’t really have time to go into right now, gays like scary films. Maybe it’s the affinity with overbearing mothers, maybe it’s the affinity with asymmetric hairstyles, maybe it’s the fact that once you’ve seen an overweight man lean out of a white van to hurl homophobic obscenities the only way is up, aesthetically speaking – but either/or, our sources tell us those of a same-sex oriented nature aren’t averse to a whole bunch of serial killers and decapitation on their silver screens. Which rather neatly leads us to FrightFest, the UK’s biggest/best horror film festival, which kicks off (saws off more likely) on 25th August at Empire Leicester Square and features films with titles like Vile and Atrocious and The Only Way to Die. Fun for all the family.
Oh, and one of the films being shown is Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark, starring Katie Holmes and a bunch of frightening small creatures (not Tom Cruise in a house of mirrors. That was far too easy).
