Signature Entertainment presents Hounded on Digital Platforms 31st October
They shouldn’t have planned to rob the aristocracy. They shouldn’t have even attempted to take on an elite inner circle on their own stately home turf. And they definitely shouldn’t have got themselves caught. For now an urban gang of arrogant thieves must fight for their lives as the evil lady of the manor sets her hounds loose on her estate to hunt them down for the most twisted sport. It’s Tally Ho for tradition and terror in the survival thriller debut feature from director Tommy Boulding. Starring Samantha Bond, Malachi Pullar-Latchman & James Lance.
FrightFest will screen Final Cut in Main Screen on Friday 26th August at 20:30
In 2017, ONE CUT OF THE DEAD caused a FrightFest cult sensation. Now, after opening the Cannes Film Festival, the critically acclaimed French remake by Michael Hazanavicius, director of the Oscar-winning THE ARTIST, takes us back to its inception and shows all the gory tricks of the Z-movie trade needed to get it on screen in the first place. It’s the silly, excessive and cheery meta-zombie movie of the year that’s a feel-good over-the-top riot. Starring Romain Duris, Bérénice Bejo & Grégory Gadebois.
