With Frightfest 2013 only weeks away we caught up with FF co-organiser and PR master Greg Day for his opinions on what delights are in store for audiences this year.
1. What’s your personal favourite from this year’s festival?
GD: Cheap Thrills – for originality, sheer tension and a great script.
2. What’s different this year from previous FrightFests?
GD: More films. More guests. More stress.
3. This year’s most crowd-pleasing movie?
GD: Everyone will say R.I.P.D but I think it will be Big Bad Wolves.
4. This year’s “Martyrs” award for most grueling film?
GD: I Spit On Your Grave 2 is the obvious one but On Tender Hooks made me feel a little peekish.
5. One secret you can reveal about this year festival?
GD: Chucky is the love child of (FrightFest co-organiser) Ian Rattray.
6. What’s your proudest FrightFest memory?
GD: First time I went on stage with the other FrightFesters Then I knew I was part of the FrightFest family. Mind you, there’s not much room for the 4 of us on that stage.
7. What’s the most impressive length to which a fan has gone to attend FrightFest?
GD: I was impressed by Eragon star Ed Speleers' stalker - who would suddenly appear out of nowhere, as if she had a cloak of invisibility.
8. Which guest stars are you most excited about this year?
GD: Hobo with a Shotgun and V/H/S 2 director Jason Eisener. After dropping his trousers at FrightFest in Glasgow I’m wondering how he’s going to top that.
9. How has FrightFest changed in its14 years?
GD: The baby teeth have grown into long sharp fangs but it’s still a very cuddly monster.
10. What is the one classic horror film you’d love to show at FrightFest and why?
GD: The 1934 version of The Black Cat. Who can resist such helpings of necrophilia, flogging and drugs – plus that great soundtrack. And no guest expenses...
