Having garnered some very positive buzz after its debut at Sundance earlier this year, British independent horror In Fear is now set to be unleashed at Frightfest.

Billed as a truly chilling tale, debut director Jeremy Lovering’s offering focuses on a couple, Tom and Lucy, making their way to a music festival.

But after they got lost on woodland roads, they soon find themselves at the mercy of an unknown tormentor.

The trailer doesn’t give too much away, but it does suggest a real air of tension, and with up-and-coming stars Alice Englert and Ian De Caestecker backed up by respected producer Nira Park, this looks as though it could hit the spot – hardly surprising when you learn the two leads had the script withheld from them, leading to an authentic air of terror.

In Fear screens at Frightfest on Sunday, August 25.
