Re: Rabbit in Red Lounge

I tried using it a couple of years ago - never received the order, and only got the money back via PayPal. No response to any emails I sent them. I would contact them before purchasing if I were you and only order if you get a response. As DJBenz says, you will be covered by PayPal, but it's a hassle.

Re: 2019 Discovery Screens

Oof. That was almost as much fun as the main event :eek:

Re: Parking

Thanks Ian, that's a good discount! I'll definitely be avoiding the fright bus on a couple of nights now!

Parking

Does FrightFest have any kind of deal with nearby car parks like Q-Park this year? I know discounts have been negotiated at past events.

Cheers

Re: 2019 Ticket info.

Nowadays, booking for the LFF is - touch wood and cross fingers - almost entirely smooth and painless. It's a little slow for the first 20 or 30 minutes, a bit nerve-wracking (because I always expect the worst), but - touch wood again - the system doesn't crash and tickets don't vanish from your ba...

Re: The Golem

4/10. This modern re-imagining of the silent era classic is The Paz Brothers' follow up to their holy land found footage run around, Jeruzalem . As with that film, they bring their own cultural heritage to bear - but in this case, not nearly enough. Where the orginal Golem was an incredible spectacl...

Re: The Field Guide to Evil

3/10. Dreary anthology of world folklore that outstays its welcome by about half an hour and at least two segments.

Re: Open 24 Hours

5/10. A solidly run of the mill slasher that I quite enjoyed for the first two thirds, where there were possibilities to take it in a more interesting direction. It goes downhill fast in the final third once you realize that James ('The Rain Ripper') is indeed real and not a manifestation of Mary's ...

Re: Tigers Are Not Afraid

9/10. Standout of the fest for me. Strong storytelling, genuinely moving while eschewing overt sentimentality, coupled with imaginative cinematography and crisp sound design make this a real gem of magical realism.

Re: Terrified

6/10. After a day of damp squibs and non-horror, it was gratifying to watch an old school shocker that goes for chills and largely succeeds in its mission. The story is underdeveloped and doesn't quite hang together like it should, but it makes up for it with a sustained atmosphere of dread, some we...

Ghost Mask: Scar

2/10. The nadir of what was a pretty poor Sunday (things did pick up after this one!) From the poster and brief synopsis, I was hoping for South East Asia's answer to American Mary, but was instead treated to a faintly ludicrous melodrama with a bit of horror tacked on at the end - and when I say th...

Re: The Man Who Killed Hitler and then The Bigfoot

3/10. The more I think about this film, the more it annoys me. The title looks like it's gunning for classic B movie territory, with a lot of trashy fun to be had along the way, but what you actually get is a cloyingly sentimental story of love, loss and regret with a barely a passing nod to those e...

Re: Hell Is Where The Home Is

4/10. Home invasion movie that twists and turns in an attempt to hold your interest but finally pisses credibility up the wall when the police turn up in the last act. This also involves a real bugbear of mine: characters who have shown no previous inclination for violence suddenly becoming seasoned...
