What is FrightFest?
FrightFest is also known as Horror Channel FrightFest. It is an annual film festival that takes place in London over the August Bank Holiday weekend. The first FrightFest was held in 2000. The primary focus of the event is the horror genre. Although it also represents a wide range of movies. The festival was run and envisioned by film producer Paul McEvoy; Ian Rattray, a film distributor; Alan Jones, a journalist; and Greg Day, a TV and film PR. They are a force throughout the weekend and very eager for feedback. The festival was held at the Prince Charles Cinema, also known as PCC, for five years. Then in 2005, the venue moved to the Odeon West End (OWE), due to the increasing number of audiences. The festival happened at OWE for three years, and then in 2009, it shifted its venue to Empire Leicester Square. The FrightFest brand is included in the Glasgow Film Festival and the Cambridge Film Festival. Some notable attendees of the festival include Guillermo del Toro, Danny Boyle, Tobe Hooper, Kane Hodder, Neil Marshall, Don Mancini, George A. Romero, Rob Zombie, Park Chan-wook, and Paul W.S. Anderson.
The FrightFest also attracts a more significant number of sponsors throughout its life, like Xfm, Zone Horror, film4, Volkswagen, Lupo, and Play.com. Last year’s fest was terrific. It was also the 20th year of the festival. The festival returned to Cinewood and Prince Charles Cinemas on Leicester Square. The event was held from 22nd to 26th August in 2019.

The film surrounds Faye, and she is an actress who has given up her career after losing her eyesight due to complications during laser surgery. She lives in Hollywood and has regained the sense of normalcy in her life. But because of the lack of eyesight, she is entirely unaware of the stranger, who is living in her basement. Since Sophia and Faye both are blind, the Pretty Boy does not even wait for the dark to make his appearance. In the trailer, we can see the Pretty boy keeps Faye safe from paparazzi and also does not leave any moment to hurt anyone, who gets into the way of pursuing her as his love interest. Blind has lots of disturbing moments of stalking when Faye is unaware that she is being stalked.
