To celebrate the release of WORST FEARS on DVD on September 5th 2016, distributor Nucleus Films is delighted and proud to announce that the documentary HORROR ICON, which examines the “alter-ego” of writer/producer David McGillivray, will receive its World Premiere at this year's FrightFest on Sunday 28th August at 1.20pm, Vue Cinema West, 12 Shepherds Bush, Green, London W12 8PP, prior to its inclusion on the WORST FEARS DVD.
Following the screening, David McGillivray will be interviewed onstage about his career in UK cult horror and sexploitation cinema, including his collaborations with directors Pete Walker and Norman J. Warren on their classic British shockers, which include HOUSE OF WHIPCORD, FRIGHTMARE, SATAN’S SLAVE, TERROR and the notorious - and most memorably titled - British sex comedy I’M NOT FEELING MYSELF TONIGHT - to name but a few.
The Frightfest screening will be a hot ticket over the Bank Holiday weekend and, along with the DVD release, is not to be missed by genre aficionados!

ABOUT WORST FEARS
Our fears are usually worse than the reality - but not always. Sometimes, things are even worse than we fear.
Seven nightmarish tales from legendary British horror film writer and producer David McGillivray: collaborator with Pete Walker and Norman J. Warren, and the fiendish screenwriter behind House of Whipcord, Frightmare, House of Mortal Sin, Schizo, Satan’s Slave and Terror.
For the first time on DVD and featuring all-new material, Worst Fears is in the blood-soaked tradition of classic Hammer and Amicus anthologies, with a dash of BBC Ghost Stories and Tales of the Unexpected. Includes the award-winning In The Place Of The Dead.
Filmed on location in Marrakech, Lisbon, Nice and London, the remarkable cast includes Rebecca Santos (Seed of Chucky), Fenella Fielding (Carry On Screaming!), Rosie Alvarez (Casualty), Victor Spinetti (Help!, The Krays), Holly de Jong (The Last Horror Film, Electric Dreams), Anna Wing (Xtro, The Blood on Satan’s Claw, Eastenders), Ben Pullen (Dark Knight) - and himself.
