1. Don’t Be Afraid Of The Dark: Thursday 25 August, 6.30pm

Young Bailee Madison is sent to live with dad Guy Pearce and stepmum Katie Holmes in their creepy mansion. In the basement she discovers all kinds of Pan’s Labyrinth-alike creatures bent on persuading her – and FrightFesters – to completely disregard that title.
