Inner Demon joins line-up at FrightFest 2015

Australian horror/thriller Inner Demon has today been confirmed to join the line-up at FrightFest 2015 in London, which runs from August 25-31.

Directed by Ursula Dabrowsky, the film will premiere on Sunday August 30 at three sessions.

“As the UK’s premiere international fantasy and horror film festival, it is incredibly rewarding to have Inner Demon added to the FrightFest line-up for this year. I am excited to be making the trip over to the event held annually in Leicester Square, to be a part of the Q&As after each screening as well as to check out the best in horror, fantasy and thriller films,” said Saylavee Productions’ Dabrowsky.

Dubbed "the Woodstock of Gore" by director Guillermo Del Toro, FrightFest was created in 2000 by film producer Paul McEvoy, journalist and broadcaster Alan Jones and film distributor/booker Ian Rattray. Greg Day, the festival's long standing PR, became a joint director in 2007.

From its cult roots at the Prince Charles Cinema it has grown to become one of the genre's most vibrant, credible and recognisable brands, helping to launch the careers of directors such as Simon Rumley, Christopher Smith, Eli Roth, Neil Marshall and Simon Hunter.

Apart from the annual 5-day event in London, FrightFest has an ever-growing strand at the Glasgow Film Festival, hosts a nationwide Halloween horrorthon and showcases special screenings throughout the year. It recently teamed up with Icon Films Distribution to release FrightFest curated films under the banner 'FrightFest Presents'.

Inner Demon tells the nightmarish tale of a teenage girl, Sam (Sarah Jeavons), who is abducted by a serial killer couple. Sam manages to escape and find refuge in an isolated farmhouse, only to discover it is home to greater terrors and a malevolent spirit. Hiding in a cupboard, bleeding to death, and waiting for her chance to escape, Sam is propelled into a struggle for survival, one that will push her to the limits not only physically and emotionally, but spiritually.

Having already notched up rave reviews including “Sarah Jeavons is a revelation” by Bryn Tilly, Cult Projections and a “Chilling Ride” from David Nolte of Crimson Celluloid, Inner Demon was awarded ‘Best Australian Feature’, ‘Best Australian Director’ and ‘Best Female Performance’ at A Night of Horror International Film Festival in 2014. The film also appeared at Monsterfest last year.

Inner Demon recently had ts Northern American premiere as part of the annual Etheria Film Night, signed on for international distribution with Deadhouse Films and will be released later this year.
