Arrow Video FrightFest 2019 Round-Up

The Arrow Video FrightFest 2019 came, delighted and went. Let us take time to reflect upon a fantastic 20th anniversary weekend for the UK’s premiere horror film festival. Indulge us as we run through memorable moments from the weekend and the movies that played.

Ghosts in the Machine: Graham Hughes Talks Death of a Vlogger

One of the brightest gems playing the 2019 Arrow Video FrightFest is Graham Hughes’ Death of a Vlogger.
