The full schedule of screenings for London's premiere horror film festival, FrightFest, has been announced.

The event, which takes place at the Empire in Leicester Square, will present four days of blood-soaked terror to keen audiences. No fewer than six world premieres are planned, including first showings for Adam Green's Hatchet II, Aussie director Josh Reed's Primal and Brit horror flick Dead Cert from Steve Lawson.

An unmissable retrospective sees director Tobe Hooper come to the city for the first time in almost 20 years to present a screening of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre and participate in an on-stage interview after the film.

British directors are well represented, with seven titles at the event. Highlights include Gareth Edwards's incredibly impressive feature debut Monsters(pictured), which had its world premiere at SXSW, and Paul Andrew Williams's latest chiller, Cherry Tree Lane, fresh from its debut at the Edinburgh Film Festival.
