Asking the question which is worse – the fear of the unknown or the known fear of man, The Inside is another Irish effort that gets its world premiere at Frightfest.

Described as a hard, violent, visceral psychological horror, this effort mixes up first person perspective, found footage and supernatural goings-on.

While in a pawnshop a young man comes across a video camera – nothing unusual about that.

But what is unusual is the tape that is left inside it – a tape that when played shows a series of horrific events involving a group of teens at an undisclosed location.

Deciding to investigate and get to the bottom of what he has just seen, the decision takes the investigator on a journey to the heart of supernatural terror – a journey from which he may never return.

The Inside is directed by Eoin Macken, better known to audiences as Sir Gawaine in hit BBC series Merlin.

And Macken has put together a cast stuffed with Irish talent, including Emmett Scanlan, Sean Stewart and Brian Fortune.

The Inside screens at Frightfest on Sunday, August 26.
