by Craig Hunter

We’ve received the official press release giving us the first look at legendary graphic designer and illustrator Graham Humphreys’ poster artwork for the forthcoming Film4 FrightFest event taking place in London’s Leicester Square in August. We’ll keep you posted on the schedule of films being showcased at the festival now in its 14th year. Click on the following link to catch details of the opening and closing titles already confirmed.


Top illustrator Graham Humphreys, who has been FrightFest’s poster designer since the very beginning in 2000, has revealed the primary artwork for FrightFest 2013.

Graham said today: “This year’s image plays with the skull of Yorick, in a parody of  Hamlet and all the attendant themes of revenge, murder, ghosts and  corruption. The death of celluloid is represented by the corpse in the director’s chair and the spools for brains. As it is the centennial year of Peter Cushing’s birth, his contribution to the genre is honoured with a bust and the passing of Ray Harryhausen is remembered with a glimpse of two of his creations”.

Film4 FrightFest, the UK’s biggest genre film festival, runs from Thursday 22 August to Monday 26 August at the Empire Cinema, Leicester Square. The full line up will be announced on 28 June.  Festival & day passes go on sale from 29 June. Tickets for Individual films are on sale from 27 July.
