Re: What Keeps You Alive

I really enjoyed this too and I thought the score (also by Brittany Allen) was a real stand out. The couple were believable and while there was some seriously daft decision making it all worked very well and never dragged. I did think the flashback bit towards the very end was a bit superfluous but ...

Re: Terrified

I think I nodded off briefly too since I have no idea what happened to the neighbour man who was on the phone a lot at the start - I found it disjointed and a little disappointing in the lack of screen time for the scary thing on the poster to do scary stuff but that's my fault for not reading anyth...

Re: One Cut of the Dead

That's perfectly understandable. The third act is the key to happiness. I'm sure that's true, but that would have meant sitting through the rest of it :D I do remember I hated Birdman all the way through until the last fifteen minutes which completely turned the whole thing around and I'm glad I st...

Re: Braid

I missed out on a ticket for Bluebird so wound up in this instead and wished I hadn't. I didn't mind the idea of the three childhood friends playing a weird game in a big crumbling house, but it was like being forced to watch an A level film studies project and the shaky purple bits especially were ...

Re: One Cut of the Dead

With the caveat that I walked out after half an hour and didn't see it all, I'm still baffled by all the fuss about this - I found it irritating, unengaging and woefully unfunny. It didn't help that the bloke on one side of me - to follow a recurring theme - didn't smell too pleasant and the one on ...

Re: The Field Guide to Evil

I was enjoying the pre-title sequence, but then it turned out that the projector wasn't working. I did think the Trud was quite scary when it briefly appeared but I had no idea what was going on and I'm pretty sure I slept through the middle part. I like an anthology on the last day when I'm getting...

Re: Incident in a Ghostland

You know what you're getting - punching in the head, non-stop relentless screaming, lots of things around the place getting knocked over and smashed, more punching and screaming before somebody gets away for a few minutes then gets caught again and the punching and screaming can resume. I enjoyed it...

Re: Best 5 of the festival

And I though...

Re: Climax

However, these days we get too many films that have the same premise just shot different and we complain we have seen it all before. I for one admire Noe's originality. And this is his most commerical film so far. One of the friends i made at this years frightfest had her friend get up and leave ha...

Re: Discovery/first blood tks

There are heaps of White Chamber tickets left.I took a while for them to come online, but they are there. Just check and looking like cover 100. Thanks Ian - I think I'd got so used to missing out that when they weren't showing earlier I'd pretty much resigned myself to not getting one, and I was s...

Re: Discovery/first blood tks

Well I'm pretty gutted - out of twelve Discovery tickets I wanted I've only got two, so I now need to rethink pretty much half of my weekend and I have no idea what I'm going to do. My ticket for Bad Samaritan vanished into thin air at the Basket stage and I still don't know what happened; since I'm...

Re: First, Last and Best FrightFest films

First: Cold Prey (2007 - had Saturday and Sunday day passes) Last: Tragedy Girls (2017) Best: Hard to pick one but for consistency, recommendability and repeat-watching value I'd say Sleep Tight, although that might be because I almost didn't bother with it at all and I was properly chuffed I did. 2...

Re: What Seat did you get? (2018)

Row K, near the middle. The furthest away I've ever sat, apart from a lone foray into the back row once at the Vue when it was practically empty and I fancied a sleep for an hour during something less-than-memorable :D I'm middle K too. Hello neighbour!! *waves* :D On the off chance you were around...
