“It’s alive! It’s alive!”
Announcing the birth of Fantastiq, a new genre film festival built upon the evergreen attraction of films fantastique including retro delights, special guests, tribute events and new releases.
A hub for horror, fantasy and sci-fi, Fantastiq promises to immerse aficionados in the worlds of mythical beasts, mad scientists and a morgue-ful of familiar faces including Karloff, Lugosi, Chaney, Price, Cushing and Lee.
Fantasy film fans can look forward to the best of the gory, glory days of Universal, AIP, Hammer and Amicus as well as classics from the sci-fi explosion of the 1950s. Like monster movies? Look no further, for here be monsters in abundance…
Fantastiq is taking requests for its first edition. Send your thoughts to Tony Earnshaw, festival director
