Re: Ghost Killers vs Bloody Mary

This needed to be about 15 - 20 minutes shorter, can't quite decide what shouldnt be there but it was just too long. Shame because it had some fun ideas and a likeable cast.

Re: Why Won't You Just Die?

Hard to say much without spoilers. The use of flashbacks prevents it becoming claustrophobic and there were many twists and turns in the story. This was the highlight of Saturday for me.

Re: Witches In The Woods

It could have done with a bit more background on the witchcraft history. More could have been done with the hunter character too.
Spoiler:
Possibly the most annoying final girl in this year's Frightfest.

Re: Spiral

I too was confused as to where the message came from. By the end I assumed the satanists did it but why? Plenty of people turned out for the birthday party so the manipulation of hate hadn't worked that well and they would have got closer to their proposed victim by simply continuing to be friendly ...

Re: Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark

I agree, the victims aside from Harold, didnt seem to have done enough 'wrong' to deserve the punishment. The effects were good and I'd give a sequel a try.

Re: Knives and Skin

I wanted to like this. The premise was interesting and the sci-fi type elements at the outset were intriguing but I ended up not feeling anything for any of the characters and the central mystery wasnt enough to keep me involved. TBF I left after just over an hour as I had lost the will to go on so ...

Re: Bliss

I liked this, though I am quite fond of a good descent into drugs and madness film (I loved Climax!). I wasn't expecting to like it as much as I did but I found all the characters engaging in some way and loved the overall look of the film.

Re: 2019 Discovery Screens

It's so hard isn't it. Seeing some people's Disco picks has me wishing I'd gone for that, but so many of them are on the Sunday, which is from start to finish essential viewing in the main screen to me. Hopefully a lot of what I'm interested in will make it out there, on BR/DVD or digital. There's ...

Re: 2019 Discovery Screens

38 minutes for the first ticket then the rest just zipped through. I bought tickets for Dario Argento and Dachra when they went on sale as I didnt want to miss out either of those. Otherwise I am seeing: Here comes Hell; Rock Paper Scissors; Sonata; Impossible Crimes; Witches in the Woods and The Wr...

Re: 2019 Ticket info.

I had the payment timed out message, then somehow got an email confirmation of a ticket. Shame I panicked and picked a really bad seat but I was just stabbing green dots wildly and waiting for the message to say it wasnt available.

This payment system isnt formatted for IMAX :D

An endless boring cycle of: 1. Wander round dimly lit corridors exceptionally slowly 2. 'You ungrateful girl ! take her to (insert location)' 3.

Re: Luciferina

But in terms of an unnerving sense of demonic evil on screen - LUCIFERINA really has it. I remember feeling that way after watching THE EXORCIST on the big screen for the first time... ****SPOILER ALERT**** ...and I don't think I've ever seen a sex scene quite so justified by context as it is here!...

Re: Best 5 of the festival

Either I was the only person here to see it, or I completely misjudged it but I’m amazed nobody else is ranking The Laplace’s Demon. Such a smart premise, brilliantly constructed with clockwork precision and looks straight out of the 30s or 40s. It had a real Fermat’s Room or (retro) Cube feel to i...
