BRITFLICKS BEST OF THE BEST AWARDS - Arrow Video Frightfest 2018

BRITFLICKS.COM BEST OF THE BEST AWARDS - Arrow Video Frightfest 2018

Top 5 Horror & Genre Movies at Frightfest 2018 

CLIMAX directed by Gaspar Noe

1) CLIMAX

Written and directed by Gaspar Noe

Climax retells the true story of a nineties dance troupe who unwittingly drank booze spiked with LSD. See it on the biggest screen you can find with the loudest sound system on the planet for the full mesmeric effect.

2) A BLUEBIRD IN MY HEART

Adapted from Dannie M Martin’s novel THE DISHWASHER by Jeremie Guez

Directed by Jeremie Guez

Like Alan Ladd’s titular character SHANE, the ex-con at the heart of this story will try and always fail to lead a non-violent, contented crime-free life.

TIGERS ARE NOT AFRAID

3) TIGERS ARE NOT AFRAID

Written by Joseph Kahn & Alex Larson

Written and directed by Issa Lopez 

This dark fairy tale about orphans stranded in a forgotten corner of Mexico’s cartel land shows how children hiding away from every day horrors in their young imagination can conjure up something much scarier than gangs and guns.

BRAID - Mitzi Peirone

4) BRAID

Written and directed by Mitzi Peirone

This assured debut feature about two small time drug dealers on the run transforms into an unreal cinematic journey to oblivion.

5) UPGRADE

Written and directed by Leigh Whannell

A witty, action packed nightmare vision from a near future world that warns technology may make our lives seem better, but it could erase survival instincts that have been crucial to the human race for millennia.

Top 3 British Horror & Genre Films At FrightFest 2018

THE DEVIL'S DOORWAY - Aislinn Clarke​

​ 1) THE DEVIL'S DOORWAY

Written by Martin Brennan, Aislinn Clarke and Michael B Jackson

Directed by Aislinn Clarke

A measured piece of genre cinema that balances the real world horrors of the Catholic Church’s Magdalene Sisters Home with a convincingly scary tale of possession.

ANNA AND THE APOCALYPSE

2) ANNA AND THE APOCALYPSE

Written by Alan Macdonald, Ryan McHenryDirected by John McPhail

The happiest, most gleeful gore-frenzy depiction of a zombie apocalypse musical you’ll ever see.

F.U.B.A.R directed by Ben Kent

3) F.U.B.A.R

Written and directed Ben Kent

A stag do gang of numb nuts accidentally kill a pretend zombie they’re meant to shoot with paint ball pellets and increasingly make their dire situation worse by being even more stupid for the horror lolz.

Horror & Genre Movie With The Best Twist

INCIDENT IN A GHOSTLAND

1) INCIDENT IN A GHOSTLAND

Written and directed by Pascal Laugier

INCIDENT IN A GHOSTLAND continues to demonstrate Laugier’s skill in cooking up and delivering a juicy twist that carries you confused and frightened into a thrilling final act. Like MARTYRS and the criminally underrated TALL MAN, you thought you were watching one film, but it turns out it was something completely different. 

THE DARK - Justin P Lange

2) THE DARK

Written by Justin P Lange 

Directed by Justin P Lange and Klemens Hufnagi

The start of THE DARK is the end of most films as the net closes in on Josef - a child kidnapper on the run from the law and his mugshot on the TV in the gas station he’s gathering supplies. His hapless attempt to wait it out in the woods results in his sudden death – the end of Josef’s story, but the beginning of a rather special horror tale of two abused teenagers finding hope in one another’s desperate situations.

ONE CUT OF THE DEAD

3) ONE CUT OF THE DEAD

Written and directed by Shin’ichiro Ueda

For the more impatient film fans out there, there’s a chance you might not make it past the first half hour, but those who do will discover that ONE CUT OF THE DEAD is infact a terrific feat in filmmaking.

Best Film Music FrightFest 2018

Possum - Matthew Holness

1) POSSUM

Written and directed by Matthew Holness

Kit Fraser’s stunning cinematography, Charlotte Pearson’s grimy and dilapidated production design, Crispin Buxton’s lost and lonely locations and the profound sounds and melodies of The Radiophonic Workshop are a dark, twisted delight for the eyes and ears as the madness unfolds.

CLIMAX  Written and directed by Gaspar Noe

2) CLIMAX

Written and directed by Gaspar Noe

There’s eclectic mix of early disco classics, like CERRONE’s Supernature, through to contemporary EDM like DAFT PUNK’s relentless Rollin’ & Scratchin’ that pound the living daylights out of your ears from start to finish.

Best FrightFest Villain 2018

A YOUNG MAN WITH HIGH POTENTIAL

1) A YOUNG MAN WITH HIGH POTENTIAL

Written by Anna de Paoli and Linus de Paoli

Directed by Linus de Paoli

An amoral tale about a brilliant computer science student Piet Carnell (Adam Ild Rohweder) whose pathetic attempt to rape a drugged up fellow student turns from humiliation to murder.

BAD SAMARITAN - David Tennant

2) BAD SAMARITAN

Written by Brandon Boyce

Directed by Dean Devlin

David Tennant shines bright as the Maserati driving, tech-savvy, uber wealthy master-villain Cale Erendreich.

THE CLEANING LADY

3) THE CLEANING LADY

Written by Alexis Kendra and Jon Knautz

Directed by Jon Knautz

In this purposefully slow building story, Shelly (Rachel Alig) is a horrifically scarred, enigmatic cleaner/handy woman, but when she eventually flips she fast becomes downright nasty and calculated. 

BEST OF THE REST 2018

It has been impossible to include all the ones I enjoyed in my final awards list. Here’s the Britflicks best of the rest list:

BODIED - Eminem

​ BODIED

Written by Joseph Kahn & Alex Larson

Directed by Joseph Kahn

Produced by Eminem, it’s a peculiar coming of age story that lampoons a molly coddled, safe space hiding generation for arguing themselves into a liberal vacuum and throws over simplistic identity politics dogma under the bus.

LIFE AFTER FLASH

LIFE AFTER FLASH

Written and directed by Lisa Downs

Thirty-five years after FLASH GORDON was released Lisa Downs’ documentary examines the legacy of this camp, sci-fi masterpiece through the prism of its star – Sam J Jones.

TERRIFIED (original title ATERRADOS)

TERRIFIED (original title ATERRADOS)

Written and directed by Demian Rugna

This Argentinean scarefest taps into an ongoing global investigation into paranormal rumblings and sets it in an Buenos Aires suburban street to provide that rare horror treat - a delightfully unnerving experience in terror. Not for the faint hearted.

THE FIELD GUIDE TO EVIL

THE FIELD GUIDE TO EVIL

Horor Anthology from Tim League and Ant Timpson

A global expedition to eight of folklore’s darkest outposts with directors such as Greece’s Yannis Veslemes (NORWAY), UK’s Peter Strickland (DUKE OF BURGUNDY), Poland’s Agnieszka Smorcynska (THE LURE) and Germany’s Katrin Gebbe (NOTHING BAD CAN HAPPEN)

THE MAN WHO KILLED HITLER AND THEN THE BIGFOOT

THE MAN WHO KILLED HITLER AND THEN THE BIGFOOT

Written and directed by Robert D Krzykowski

Robert D Krzykowski (co-producer of THE WOMAN) debut feature is about the process of growing old and coming to terms with the memories of a life lived as you begin to accept your own mortality.

THE WITCH IN THE WINDOW

THE WITCH IN THE WINDOW

Written and directed by Andy Mitton

It takes a lot of craft and imagination to create something refreshing out of the ghost in the house story. Andy Mitton’s third feature script achieves it in spades.

VIDEOMAN (original title VIDEOMANNEN)

VIDEOMAN (original title VIDEOMANNEN)

Written and directed by Kristian A Soderstrom

Soderstrom’s debut feature is most definitely a loving ‘giallo’ pastiche, but without gruesome deaths or needless misogyny. The powers that be at Frightfest towers have always thrown curveballs at their audiences from across the genre. Swedish noir comedy, VIDEOMANNEN, is one such film.

LIFECHANGER

Written and directed by Justin McConnell

This high concept sci-fi/horror idea is matched with great practical effects from David Scott and his team. While worlds apart in terms of story, LIFECHANGER is a clever film that is cut from the same cerebral, tender cloth as 2017’s IMITATION GIRL.
