Five FrightFest Facts From Sacrifice co-director Tor Mian

Everyone can agree that 2020 has been a challenging year. Apart from all living in a real pandemic horror movie there have been lockdowns, lay offs, panic buying and more and we don’t seem to be done with it yet. However FrightFest have done their best to make 2020 better by bringing us TWO Frightfests packed full of fantastic fear filled films.

Arrow Video FrightFest will go virtual for the second time in 2020, having taken the decision to cancel its planned physical event at the Cineworld, Leicester Square, due to continuing COVID restrictions. The forty-five feature film line-up will merge the in-cinema selection with brand new titles to provide an online festival experience from Oct 21-Oct 25.

Below we feature one of those amazing movies with our regular exclusive interview feature Five FrightFest Facts From and these five are from Sacrifice co-director Tor Mian

1: Tell us about the film?
I would love to tell you that ‘Sacrifice’ is an inspirational and uplifting drama about the creation of Elton John’s first number one single. Unfortunately, it in fact has something to do with Norwegian murder cults and fjord dwelling deities.

2: How did you get into making horror films?
There is a long and winding answer to this question but it fundamentally boils down to a lack of friends growing up.

3: What film would you like to see screened at Fright Fest and why?
Eat. Pray. Love. Pound for pound the most disturbing film ever made.

4: If you could create your own award at Fright Fest what would it be and why?
The actual award category would be something completely arbitrary. The important thing would be the significant cash prize that I could easily rig to win myself. It’s not just that I am desperate for the money. Good festivals have a duty to peddle the notion that-despite all evidence to the contrary- it is in fact possible to make a living as an independent film maker.

5: If your life was made into a horror film, what would it be called and who would play the starring role?
Ed Wood: Legacy A bloated…post Amber Heard…direct to DVD Johnny Depp would naturally fill the leading role.
