FrightFest 2013 poster revealed

Graham Humphreys unveils gruesome artwork

FrightFest 2013 has unveiled a poster to mark its upcoming weekend of terror, with famed illustrator Graham Humphreys returning as designer.

Humphreys has been creating the FrightFest posters since the event started in 2000. Commenting on his latest piece, Humphreys said, “This year's image plays with the skull of Yorick, in a parody of Hamlet and all the attendant themes of revenge, murder, ghosts and  corruption. The death of celluloid is represented by the corpse in the director's chair and the spools for brains. As it is the centennial year of Peter Cushing's birth, his contribution to the genre is honoured with a bust and the passing of Ray Harryhausen is remembered with a glimpse of two of his creations.”

Fim4 FrightFest 2013 will take place at the Empire Cinema in London’s Leicester Square from 22 to 26 August. The full line-up is announced on 28 June, and passes will go on sale from 29 June.
