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 Camila Vacarinni star of The Funeral Home.
1. Tell us about your film?
The Funeral Home immerses us in the reality of a family, that is touched in all aspects by death. A family in crisis. They are alive, but dragged by stuff that make them distant from life itself.
2. How did you get into making horror movies?
To take part in this horror project, was an unexpected opportunity for me, and as soon as I imagine myself doing it, I was completely thrilled.
3. What film would you love to see screened at FrightFest and why?
Besides The Funeral Home, which I would watch over and over again, the film CYST has a unique premise and looks really interesting to me.
4. If you could create your own award to give at the FrightFest, what would it be and why?
More than an award, I would create a prize: A chip to regulate the fear. Fear can give us adrenaline, but at the same time can even paralyze.
5. If your life was made into a horror film, what would it be called and who would play the starring role?
Many names come to my mind… One can be: “The Whispering” and it would be played by me and all my inner voices
