Ahead of her eagerly awaited presence at Horror Channel FrightFest 2017, genre icon, actress and producer Barbara Crampton talks exclusively about her latest film Replace, battling chronic fatigue syndrome and her passion for supporting new talent.
Q: Replace raises questions about beauty, body image and growing older, issues that many feel plague the Hollywood movie industry. What is your view on this subject?
BC: The best movies reflect our inner world, our hopes, our good intentions, trials and our demons. Growing old and the fear of death is endemic to all, not just the movie industry. Just when you begin to figure it out your back aches, your skin starts to wrinkle and you gain weight just by LOOKING at your food. Let's be frank: Agi... »MORE FROM FRIGHTFEST LATEST FEATURES FILM HIGHLIGHTS FOR AUGUST: FRIGHTFEST SEASON

The term 'Folk Horror' has become widely used in Horror academia to describe usually British films that dabble in all things pagan and witchy. With a strong connection to our pagan routes, 'Folk Horror' was popularised by countless Hammer Horror and Tigon films in the '60s and '70s with The Witches (1966), Witchfinder General (1968), and The Blood on Satan's Claw (1971), although arguably the most iconic of the sub-genre is The Wicker Man made in 1973, which is now a beacon of worship in its own right!
With the death of hippie culture there was a hiatus within the subgenre in the '80s and '90s, however there has since seen a resurgence, specifically with the critically acclaimed The Witch in 2015; a dark, foreboding tale of paranoia and occult pract... »MORE FROM EMILY BOOTH ON HORROR TONIGHT

88 Films will unleash Lucio Fulci's most macabre and underrated blood-operas, Touch Of Death (1988) on August 7th, the latest addition to their now legendary Italian Collection.
Making its British bow in full HD, with a stunning new restoration for Blu-ray, Touch Of Death has been tragically underseen even though it rates right up there with Fulci's most fiendish splatter epics.
Starring the iconic B-movie maverick Brett Halsey (Return Of The Fly) and Euro-schlock veteran Al Cliver (The Devil Hunter), this fast-paced, plasma-drenched sickie tells of a cannibalistic killer who seems to be surrounded by an increasingly large amount of bizarre personalities.
Of course, this factor does not exactly help his sanity and as the bodies pi... »MORE NEWS SEASON ON HORROR FRIGHTFEST SEASON
