Be chilled to the bone, cling to the edge of your seat, or feel a rush of excitement at the eerie nature of films on our popular thriller strand. Returning to the Aesthetica Short Film Festival, the genre features a series of remarkable storylines that will have you swaying from anticipation to surprise and bewilderment.
Throughout history, directors have revelled in the genre’s power to invoke a visceral response – and audiences have similarly relished the thrills, scares and adrenaline rushes. This Halloween prepare yourself for the psychological, curious and strange tales that await in the ASFF 2015 thriller category.
Top 5 to see thrillers:
5. Roadkiller by Kate Cheeseman: a greedy salesman, played by Philip Davis (Notes on a Scandal, Poldark, Bleak House), kills a badger for food with terrible consequences.
British Horror Festival Leicester Square 2017
"For those that enjoy a little discomfort in their viewing experience, look to Roadkiller (Kate Cheeseman), which gleefully channels some Stephen King-style comedy horror: businessman kills badger, encounters an animal cult = chaos ensues."
