We’re in G34-36 - you’re welcome to scooch down for a snuggle if it all gets too chilly ;)

Do you mean films you'd like to see cos you missed them at the time, or just any 25, even if you've seen them already?

Re: What Seat did you get? (2018)

Tried to get 4 together, but ended up with G29-31 + H29. Hopefully a little further away from that evil a/c this year!

Re: First, Last and Best FrightFest films

Nope, definitely Stitches - I was there for that one too and yeah, best intro I've seen at FF to date! Adam Green's intro for Vic Crowley last year got a lot of love, but Ross Noble had the crowd in...

Re: First, Last and Best FrightFest films

Including the Halloween events? I'll assume so!

First - The Happiness of the Katakuris (2002)
Last - Terrifier (2017)

Re: FrightFest 2018

I was in C last time, but went a few of rows back to F this year. I hope I haven't moved myself out of reach of the air con, which I found glorious last year. I may have been in the minority on that front though. Possibly, I thought it was arctic - I rarely have to put extra clothes on going into a...

Thelma - LFF - Sun Oct 15 - Free Ticket!

My friend has had to pull out, so I have a spare ticket for this film now: www.imdb.com/title/tt6304046/

Not looking for anything for it, just a shame to let it go to waste! So if anyone in the London area is interested, send me a PM.

It's on Sunday Oct 15 at 14:30.

It (2017 Remake)

Biggest disappointment of the year so far for me. I'd been led to expect something really out there with this adaptation of Stephen King's novel, but what we actually get is a thoroughly mainstream horror movie. It's technically competent, and that's about the best thing I can say about it. The real...

Re: Overall Thoughts

I had a blast, having not been to frightfest since it left the empire, glad to see that nothing much has really changed. Although I noticed that lots of people leave as soon as the film finished, which made me feel sorry for the film makers, for me the best bit is to have that interaction with them...

Re: How come horror cinema is still 50 years behind horror literature?

Lots of nice broad generalisations there :D If anything, I generally fit into your discovery screen goer category as I do tend to seek out the weird outliers, though I'm not clear on what hipster T-shirts are - you mean the kind of horizontally striped T-shirts that seem to be ubiquitous in Shoredit...

Cult strand at LFF 2017

The London Film Festival line-up was announced yesterday; I've just been going through the Cult strand offerings and there's definitely some interesting stuff: https://whatson.bfi.org.uk/lff/Online/default.asp?BOparam::WScontent::loadArticle::permalink=cult&BOparam::WScontent::loadArticle::context_i...

Re: Personal safety

Did any of this advice actually get used or needed? The only thing to be vigilant of were the religious preachers outside. I live here and work here...dangers are everywhere...given we are inside a cinema 80% of the time if something did happen outside we'd probably be ok. :) My thoughts exactly, b...

Re: Top Knot Detective

More of a chuckle than laugh out loud funny, but a good idea well executed. The old footage felt authentic and interviews with cast and crew reminded me of the DVD extras I've watched for many a cult Japanese film. The sub-plot which emerged elevated it above a simple spoof. 7/10
