Fractured Visions Film Festival – a celebration of all things horror – is headed up by filmmaker Phil Escott and genre academic Dr. Mikel J. Koven.

Over two days, Fractured Visions will be showing eight new feature films and two classics along with ten new short films.

“Close enough to kiss…or kill!”
It’s a while since we’ve seen a cinematic anthology of horror tales, but Ghost Stories revives that tradition with a trio of supernatural stories in the style of English portmanteau movies of the 1960s and the Ealing classic Dead of Night. The film’s writer-directors Andy Nyman and Jeremy Dyson have adapted Ghost Stories from their successful stage show. (Nyman is an actor, writer and magician who has devised productions for Derren Brown; Jeremy Dyson is actor, writer and co-creator of The League of Gentlemen) Their film offers a tribute to an array of old-school horror tropes.
