Frightfest UK Spawns New Horror Label


Debut title to be released

Wild Bunch and FrightFest will, through eOne, distribute movies within the horror genre in the UK.

Shadow – which is already released here in the U.S. – is the first title to be released. Synopsis: Returning from a devastating tour of duty in Iran, David (Jake Muxworthy) decides to go on a mountain-biking adventure in the Alps to put his horrific memories of war behind him. High in the Alpine forest he meets pretty young Angeline (Karina Testa) and together they explore their idyllic surroundings. They discover a local legend about a lost Nazi experiment camp – a discovery that will force David to endure horrors more terrifying than anything he encountered on the battlefield. He will come face-to-face with the bloodthirsty butcher Mortis (Nuot Arquint) and learn that reality is far sicker, far gorier and far deadlier than any nightmare imaginable.

World premiered at Film4 FrightFest, Shadow has garnered Zampaglione huge critical and audience acclaim. He is planning to be in London for the opening and will attend a Q & A at the Empire, Leicester Sq. following the film’s first public screening on Friday April 29.

FrightFest’s Alan Jones commented: “FrightFest has an enviable international reputation for discovering major new talent, which Federico Zampaglione and Shadow exemplify. We couldn’t be more delighted that Wild Bunch is joining us in bringing them to a wider and appreciative audience.”
