Re: FrightFest August

Right, so my weird dream I had back in April (see about 10 posts above this one) is about to come partially true in that there will be a digital Frightfest weekend in August which will make use of social distancing by taking place in my living room instead of the Empire Leicester Square? Same questi...

Re: FrightFest August

I had this weird dream last night in which Frightfest was told by the powers that be that it could go ahead this year as long as the organisers applied social distancing. So there had to be an empty seat in-between each person. I woke up in a cold sweat thinking about the moment the tickets went on ...

Re: Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark

I enjoyed this although didn't feel the spooky tales were really strong enough to warrant the 15 rating awarded by the BBFC. I suggested as much to my group afterwards and said I thought a 12A rating would be more in line with the target audience but was met with a "no Eddie, 15 is about right" so w...

Re: Come to Daddy

A slow burn start that quickly picked up once dad started throwing a load of 'c' words in Elijah Wood's direction. Although it was also around this point that I guessed what the first twist was going to be. Overall though it was an entertaining way to start the festival with plenty of laughs (at som...

Re: Crawl

I just have to remember next time I'm trapped by an alligator in my bathroom to get it into the shower then slide the glass door shut. An hour or two cooling off like that will teach the pesky reptile a sobering lesson before I slide the door (or what's left of it) back open and allow it to slink of...

Re: Parking

Just sorted my parking out and saved over £60 with that discount! So yes Ian, think I'll be buying a Frightfest 20th anniversary t-shirt this year (last time I bought one was for the 10th anniversary so it's long overdue) :D

Re: Parking

Yeah, cheers Ian. As always that discount gives me a bit more money to spend on the Arrow stall!

Re: Where are you sitting?

Morning all Now seems like a good time to kick-off the annual “where are you sitting” threat. After yesterday’s ticketing challenges, what seat or seats did you end up with? We will be down in A38, 41, 42 and 43. Chris I don't know how you can sit that close to the screen Chris. You'll get neck ach...

Re: 2019 Ticket info.

I wasn't even planning on getting the tickets for our group this year (my mum passed away ten days ago so I've been busy sorting out all the funeral arrangements, closing accounts and shit). In fact I'd completely forgotten they went on sale today until I got an email reminding me one of our lot was...

Re: Climax

As the lights came up and I was asked what I thought by my chums the first words to leave my lips were "blimey, it was like a French 'Dust'!". Dust of course was the Adam Mason film which premiered at Frightfest way back in the early Prince Charles days and which I hated with a vengeance. If you wan...

Re: Upgrade

I can only echo what everybody else has already said. And yes, this movie does most certainly belong at Frightfest. I heard similar complaints about 'The Man Who Killed Hitler and then the Bigfoot' and I disagree with those as well. These kinds of movies were made for Frightfest (just a pity Doug Tr...

Re: Anna and the Apocalypse

Really enjoyed this. Went in with low expectations and came out with a big smile on my face and a couple of the tunes still stuck in my head. Which isn't bad given the downbeat direction the movie gradually takes after the buoyant start. Some decent gore effects as well (loved the zombie snowman mee...

Re: The Man Who Killed Hitler and then The Bigfoot

I'm assuming it was the engagement ring he never got to give her? I really liked the film. Got an 8/10 here.
