Cathedrals will fall, the river will run red... and THE BIRD will be SLAUGHTERED!

Scottish chiller The Black Gloves to premiere at FrightFest this Halloween

Lawrie Brewster’s eagerly awaited Gothic Noir THE BLACK GLOVES will screen at Horror Channel FrightFest’s Halloween extravaganza in London on the 28th of October.

The 1940s-set black and white chiller, starring horror darling Macarena Gómez features alongside a choice line-up of horror premières including HOUSEWIFE, from BASKIN director Can Evrenol and BEYOND SKYLINE, the sequel to 2010 breakout hit SKYLINE.

THE BLACK GLOVES tells the story of a psychologist obsessed with the disappearance of his young patient, and the menacing owl-headed figure that plagued her nightmares. His investigations lead him to a reclusive ballerina who, just like his patient, is convinced that she is about to die at the hands of this disturbing entity.

The fourth feature from writer/director duo Sarah Daly and Lawrie Brewster of horror studio Hex Media, the film sees the return of the iconic Owl Man from their cult favourite LORD OF TEARS and stars Macarena Gómez, Jamie Scott Gordon, Alexandra Nicole Hulme and Nicholas Vince.

THE BLACK GLOVES is an international co-production between Hex Media and Dark Dunes Productions in association with 3rd Monkey Productions, 7 Toes Productions, Needle’s Eye Productions and Lights Out Productions.

Day passes and single tickets are available from http://frightfest.nutickets.com/

INTERVIEW: David Naughton
untitled It’s not every day you get to speak to the lead actor in possibly your favourite horror film of all time. Especially on a Tuesday. Tuesdays are usually rubbish! David Naughton should need no introduction to horror fans. Back in 1981, An American Werewolf In London had unprepared cinema goers laughing heartily one second and jumping out of their seats in terror the next. Its tale of two young American tourists coming face-to-teeth with a legendary lycanthropic beast perfectly married a genuinely funny script with razor sharp editing, groundbreaking special effects and a flawless cast to create a monster movie that is still many people’s benchmark today Read on...
