Last year’s Frightfest had a particularly strong showing for friend of Skaro James Moran, with Cockneys vs Zombies on the first night and Tower Block closing the festival. This year, he directed as well as wrote Crazy for You, with a couple of names that readers may recognise…

Charlie has a problem with polka dots. So much so, in fact, that he has to kill anyone he sees wearing them! That tends to get in the way a bit when looking for love, but things may look up when he meets Jessica – but can she love a killer, or his nose?

As Charlie, ex-Pond Arthur Darvill has an easy watchability, and he and Hannah Tointon make a cute onscreen couple. Both the humour and the violence are well handled, and the romantic element works too, impressively so considering the brief running time. The music by Ben Foster too belies the brief nature. Could we have a new BBC3 sitcom hiding at Frightfest? It’s certainly better in its 10 minutes than any on the channel I’ve seen recently! ****
