Big Bad Wolves (Keshales & Papushado, 2013): Empire Leicester Square, 9pm
This screening takes place on the closing night of Fright Fest 2013, the
UK's premiere international fantasy and horror film festival. You can
find the details of the festival here. I am indebted to horror film expert Nigel Floyd and Cigarette Burns' Josh Saco for the suggestions and selections.
Fright Fest introduction: A series of brutal murders puts the lives of three men on collision
course in the black comedy thriller sensation of the year. They are the
father of the latest victim on a cruel vendetta, the vigilante cop
operating outside the law, and the main suspect in the killings – a
religious studies teacher arrested for the crime but released due to a
police blunder and lack of evidence. Watch them conspire, connive,
accuse and squirm! In 2011 directors Keshales and Papushado’s RABIES
became FrightFest’s most requested repeat movie ever. So we begged them
to come back with something to top it. Two years later they’ve done
exactly that with a stylishly violent revenge chiller, expertly and
brutally crafted, with fabulous cinematography, a stunning score and a
teasingly twisting plot that’s part OLDBOY, part Hitchcock, part Coen
Brothers, all mesmerising tension with a haunting final image you’ll
find impossible to forget.
Here is the trailer.
