Glasgow FrightFest announces line-up change

by Phil Wheat


News reaches us this morning that this years Glasgow FrightFest has undergone a line-up change. Due to shifting release dates, the Stephen King shocker Cell is to be replaced with the World Premiere of John Suits’ Pandemic. And honestly, I for one couldn’t be happier.

Why? Well Pandemic director John Suits was also responsible for the 2014 FrightFest flick The Scribbler which, if you’re a long time reader of Nerdly, you’ll know that I gave a whopping 5 out of 5 to after its screening. And not only that, it was my number one movie choice for the ENTIRE year… So to say I’m excited to see Suits’ next movie is something of an understatement.

PANDEMIC is a science fiction thriller featuring non-stop action from a first person shooter perspective as the all-star cast of Rachel Nichols (STAR TREK, ‘Chicago Fire’), Mekhi Phifer (INSURGENT, DIVERGENT), MIssi Pyle (GONE GIRL), Alfie Allen (JOHN WICK, ‘Game of Thrones’), Danielle Rose Russell (A WALK AMONG THE TOMBSTONES), Paul Guilfoyle (‘CSI: Crime Scene Investigation’) and Pat Healy (CHEAP THRILLS) scour a devastated Los Angeles to ward off the infected and keep the survivors contained. Revolutionary in its immersive component, we know you are going to love this new model shocker.

Pandemic will screen in the same timeslot as Cell – 6.30pm on Friday 26th February – and I can’t wait to see it!
