Film 4 FrightFest 2014: And The Winners Are...
Film 4 FrightFest has wrapped for another year and the winners of a multitude of awards were announced yesterday (Tuesday August 26). Everything starts off okay with The Babadook winning Best Film from the films shown on the Main Screen and Coherence winning Best Film on the Discovery Screen.
Then the list begins to degrade, little by little, until it is downright silly. The list of awards eventually involve the male genitalia.
I kid you not. Do you dare read the complete list knowing that somewhere on it is the category Best Penis Trauma? Congrats to all the winners!
