Opening, Closing Night Film’s for FrightFest 2013 Chosen

This year’s Film4 FrightFest in the UK opens with the world premiere of The Ford Brothers’ The Dead 2: India – the first-ever International production of a zombie film shot in India.

The film follows the story of India-based American engineer Nicholas Burton in a race against time to reach his pregnant girlfriend Ishani Sharma. Burton enlists the help of an orphan street kid Javed and together they make a perilous 300 mile journey across deadly landscapes as a zombie apocalypse threatens to engulf the entire nation. 

Film4 FrightFest will close with the UK premiere of directors Aharon Keshales & Navot Papushado’s extraordinary revenge thriller Big Bad Wolves.

Soaked in twisted tension, fairytale myth and seat-edged suspense, the film follows the lives of three men on a collision course: following a series of brutal murders: the father of the latest victim now out for revenge, a vigilante police detective operating outside the law, and the main suspect in the killings – a religious studies teacher arrested and released due to a police blunder.

Film4 FrightFest, the UK’s biggest genre film festival, runs from Thursday, August 22nd to Monday, August 26th at the Empire Cinema, Leicester Square. The full line-up and ticket details will be announced soon.
