PODCAST: FrightFest 2021 [Movie RobCast]


Episode 124 of The Movie Robcast delves deep into the dark heart of FrightFest 2021.

The UK’s biggest horror film festival was back in the cinema this August Bank Holiday weekend, with a gorenucopia of sinister cinematic treats to entertain fans. In this in-depth review of the festival you will hear intros to various movies, plus the opening festival speech from horror authority Mark Kermode.

At 22.15 Richard Waters and Alison Scarff discuss their movie Bring Out the Fear, one of Rob Daniel’s Top 10 films at the festival this year. Another Top 10 favourite was When the Screaming Starts, and you can hear from the makers of that movie at 39.30.

Also joining Rob D on the episode is horror journalist Lucy Buglass, who was good enough to talk FrightFest on the Bank Holiday Monday, and then return for a follow-up chat a few days later. Lucy appears at 45.28 and 58.23.

Films reviewed in this episode include The Last Thing Mary Saw, The Advent Calendar, Evie, The Sadness, Sound of Violence, Bring Out the Fear, When the Screaming Starts, The Found Footage Phenomenon, No Man of God, and more.
