Irish feature films ‘Stitches’ and ‘Grabbers’ each picked up awards at the 13th annual Film4 FrightFest in London.

Staged in the English capital over last weekend, director Conor McMahon’s horror/ comedy ‘Stitches’ picked up the Best Death accolade while Belfast-born director Jon Wright’s ‘Grabbers’ was awarded the Best Monsters (Non-human) award.

McMahon's ‘Stitches’ received its world premiere at the festival. Co-written by McMahon and David O'Brien, the film was shot in Ireland last year and was co-produced by Dublin-based Fantastic Films.

It stars comedian Ross Noble as Stitches the clown who, having had a fatal accident at the hands of a group of children, comes back from the dead to wreak revenge on them.

John McDonnell and Brendan McCarthy produced for Fantastic Films (Wake Wood, Outcast) alongside Julianne Forde and Ruth Treacy for Tailored Films. The feature was made in partnership with US production and distribution company MPI media group with funding from the Irish Film Board.

Jon Wright’s horror/ comedy ‘Grabbers’ was written by Kevin Lehane and shot in Co Donegal. The film was produced by Forward Films in the UK, Samson Films in Dublin, in association with High Treason Productions, Nvizible and The Salt Company.

Irish feature film ‘The Inside’ also received its world premiere at FrightFest. The psychological horror marked the directorial debut of actor and cinematographer Eoin Macken and stars ‘Charlie Casanova’ actor Emmett J. Scanlan and Czech actress Tereza Srbova (St. Trinian’s).
