Posted on 10th August 2018
Today marks the UK release of Unfriended: Dark Web. The latest nightmare offering an unnerving and unflinching look into what lies beyond the everyday realms of the internet.
When Matias (Colin Woodell) stumbles across a new laptop which runs a lot better than his current hunk o' junk, he connects with his friends online for their usual game night. He soon finds out that the computer he's picked up has a connection to the Dark Web, a horrific, and unmonitored part of the internet. Matias shares his findings, and his screen, with his friends during the game night, and finds himself the target of the laptop's original owner... who will ... »MORE HORROR FEATURES VIDEO HIGHLIGHTS LATEST: INTERVIEW WITH TIM VAN DAMMEN DIRECTOR OF MEGA TIME SQUAD

You played a Street Demon in director Jason Lei Howden's FrightFest favourite Deathgasm. Is the New Zealand film community that small?
I didn't play a street demon; I am a street demon. The film community in NZ is small enough for most active people to know most other active people - but the genre scene is small enough for us all to know each other by at least one degree of separation. Many of my friends worked on or acted in Deathgasm and they needed a night shoot of 'street demons' so I donned my tie-dye and offered to help out. It was a lot of fun and I think Jason and the team did an incredible job.

When an alien experiment goes awry, it crashes to Earth in 1959 and infects a young college student. 27 years later, his cryogenically-frozen body is thawed out by fraternity pledges, and the campus is quickly overrun by alien creatures - whose victims come back as zombies!
A cult favourite among VHS owners of the 1980s, Dekker's supremely enjoyable throwback chiller deftly combines classic horror and sci-fi elements with delicious... »MORE HORROR NEWS SEASON ON HORROR FRIGHTFEST SEASON

MORE INFO LATEST INTERVIEW INTERVIEW WITH PAUL HYETT, DIRECTOR OF HERETIKS
Posted on 7th August 2018
Paul Hyett is a firm, FrightFest favourite. His work is always a much anticipated event at the film festival and this year is no exception with the world premiere of his latest work, Heretiks. Here he chats about this and future productions.
What first attracted you to actor Gregory Blair's script?
When Templeheart gave me the script of Heretiks (although it was a different title at the time), the one thing that really grabbed my interest was the opportunity to do a creepy period horror, set in 17th Century England. I'd already shot a war-set film, a contemporary werewolf film and here was an opportunity to do a film set in the 17th ce... »MORE HORROR INTERVIEWS
