Re: Air Conditioning

I had to wear long trousers as opposed to shorts Yep, also this. And also I had to actually go out and buy the fucking cardigan on the spot if I wanted to survive the first day without getting sick. Way too strong air-con is still better than no air-con, but I'm sure we are allowed to demand a bit ...

Re: Air Conditioning

Another point of view could be "why should I take a fucking cardigan with me when outside it's fucking boiling and I could be fine in my own t-shirt". I'm sure the air-con doesn't have just two levels. But anyway: yes, better than boiling inside as well if that is what got you all worked up.

Re: The Banana Splits Movie

Hands down the best premise of the decade.
Shame the filmmakers seem to be just happy with that and put very little effort in realising the potential.
But it still works, and that's because it's not just any puppet, it's THEM.

Re: Knives and Skin

I thought it had its own very solid style, some kind of personal, surreal mix between David Lynch and Sophia Coppola. The scene where the mother starts actually sniffing the "killer" was cool. But yeah, I walked out when the idea of a metaphorical sex scene was an overlapped close-up of two girls si...

Re: Crawl

Felt more suspense thinking "that must have been a nightmare to shoot" than "uh I hope the 'gators don't get the heroes".

Re: Porno

It was alright, some fun moments. Doesn't need that title though, it's no different from any average mainstream teen horror comedy.

Re: A Good Woman is Hard to Find

Person lives a very shitty and difficult life, then something happens that makes it even more shitty and difficult. Amazing in the first half, very bleak and grounded and with a strong lead performance. Then it spoils everything with a cartoonish villain and the silliest plot turns I've seen all yea...

Re: 2019 Ticket info.

My advise is: if you're at the payment screen and after inserting your card details it takes you straight back to seat selection, check your email. It doesn't show any confirmation screen, even if payment is successful. If it wasn't for reading jonbly's message above, I would probably have 6/8 passe...

Re: 2019 Ticket info.

I got "Payment has timed out, please try again" three times and then the site kicked me out 5 minutes before the countdown was supposed to end. Happy days!

Re: Goodbye. Doesn't feel like FrightFest anymore.

Put it this way - how many films from FF 2015/2016/2017 are going to be talked about, re-watched and regarded as modern classics in years to come? Not a fair way to put it. Leatherface and 31 had buzz but they were crap, unfortunately, so they will not be remembered. The Human Centipede didn’t have...

Re: Goodbye. Doesn't feel like FrightFest anymore.

Nobody had heard the slightest about The Human Centipede when we got the world premiere at 3pm. That’s when the buzz started.
