Re: Movies For August 2017 Fest

I'm really hoping for Stephen King's IT. I am hyped as hell for that one. I am rereading the book and someone who has already seen a prescreening said it followed the book amazingly and is a real game changer, right up there with the older classic horror movies

Any recent success stories to give us hope?
Same as me then. I was thinking the only benefit is I now know my card details off by heart

Re: How Film4 FrightFest will work in 2014

I feel bad for those who have other things they need to be getting on with and may not have the option to sit around all day. I have no other commitments at the moment but its getting tedious sitting here now. As said before this is no reflection on FF who always do a stellar job. Shame they have to...

Only tiny quibbles i have is that i guessed the killer part way through and i figured the twist with the girl. But at the ...
