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?

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.
