Frightfest preview: Crawl Simon Fitzjohn August 12, 2012 Features, Film4 Frightfest 1871 Home invasion meets hitman horror in this Australian flick that thrilled genre fans when it screened at Frightfest Glasgow earlier this year. So much so in fact, that organisers felt the London audience deserved to get to see it for themselves on the big screen when it plays at the August festival on Saturday, August 25. In a rural town, a seedy bar owner hires a mysterious Croatian hitman to murder a local garage owner. The hitman does indeed do his job, but things take a more sinister and twisted turn when a planned double-cross backfires. Unfortunately for innocent local waitress Marilyn, she finds herself caught in the middle of it all, and must face off against the Croatian psychopath after he takes her hostage in her own home. Directed by Paul China and starring Georgina Haig as Marilyn, this is a thriller with a very dark streak.
