With London’s Frightfest horror film festival starting at the end of the month, the event’s schedule has started to be unveiled, including information on its closing film ‘Fall’.
‘Fall’ sees best friends Becky (Grace Fulton – Shazam) and Hunter (Virginia Gardner – Halloween 2018) climb to the top of a 2,000 ft tall radio tower and become stranded after parts of its flimsy ladder break apart.
Frightfest always know what’s best for a closing film and this looks to be no exception, but this may not be a film for anyone with a fear of heights. I’m always a fan of the one location horror, where characters are stuck in a location and have to figure out a solution, and the trailer does a fantastic job at displaying this film’s execution. Despite the flimsy opening, ‘Fall’ looks extremely tense as the two friends try to find a way down the tower.
However, due to its limited setting and concept, ‘Fall’ also looks like it will focus on character development as well as their backstories. If that is the case, then ‘Fall’ has potential to be more than just a film with a gimmicky plot.
I wasn’t expecting much from ‘Fall’ but, after seeing the terrifying trailer, I can say that I look forward to seeing it. While it is now out in America, it will have its UK premiere at London Frightfest in a couple of weeks time.
