This year's festival takes place at the Empire Cinema in Leicester Square from August 26 to 30 and features a number of premieres and previews.
It will also boast an appearance from famed horror director Tobe Hooper, who will present his 1974 classic The Texas Chain Saw Massacre and his 1969 debut Eggshells.
Total Film editor Jamie Graham said: "We're delighted to welcome Tobe as our inaugural guest.
"We're also very excited to unveil Eggshells, for it is something of a revelation: fans of Chain Saw will spy many of that film's techniques in embryonic form."
Other movies showing at the festival include I Spit On Your Grave, Dream Home, We Are What We Are, Serbian Film, Hatchet II, The Last Exorcism and Cannes' 'Queer Palm' winner Kaboom.
