Returning to strike fear into the hearts of all who dare enter the cinema, FrightFest is once again poised to deliver a chilling cornucopia of shock, surprise and delight at its beloved second home in Glasgow. It’s no surprise to us that some of the biggest box office hits of 2017 were horror films; if you’ve ever attended a FrightFest screening, you’ll know exactly why. It’s all about creating a communal space where the pure enjoyment of horror, fantasy and sci-fi is the centre of a uniquely terrifying shared experience. Welcome to FrightFest... we hope you never leave.
