Re: Big Bad Wolves

One of the best things I have seen since I have been coming to my first frightfest in 05.

Loved this.

Best thing this year by a mile.

Re: Big Love To Alan, Ian, Greg & Paul But Seriously ....

Funnily enough one guy I was chatting to yesterday said that the 'Discovery' screen feels a lot more frightfesty these days, with the main screen seeming to having to show more bums on seats mainstream kind of films. I think next year I might investigate the discovery screen a lot more. Must admit I...

Re: Tower Block

Re: The Possession

This was all a little bit predictable for to me,

Was okay but simply seemed to do everything that you would expect from a 'big budget hollywood' possession film,

Re: After

No idea what this was even doing at frightfest.

Felt like a Stephen King tv movie knock off,

Complete rubbish.

Re: American Mary

A complete surprise this and ended up being my fave film of the festival.

The twins strike me as being slightly bat shit crazy and I must check out the other stuff they have done as well as whatever they do in the future.

Re: Berberian Sound Studio

Put me in the WTF category with this one,

Certainly well made and very pretty to look at, but it didn't make a great deal of sense to me.

Toby Jones was very good in it though.

Was cheering for the marchese at the end to rid the world of three of the dumbest characters I have ever had the luxury of watching.

Complete shite.

Not a massive fan of the original, but this was straight to video garbage as far as I am concerned.

Re: Eurocrime

Nearly gave this a miss to have a lie in and am so glad I didnt.

I knew nothing about this genre before and found it very interesting.

That Belmondo stunt is insane, I cant imagine anyone in their right mind doing that in the modern era.

Best of the day for me and that suprised me.

Re: Stitches

Pefectly fine as a late night film.

Not having known who Ross Noble was before this festival found him to be a very funny guy,

The fact that this ended up being best of the day for me speaks volumes, not so much about this film as to what I thought of the rest of the films on the day.

Re: [REC]3 Genesis

This is a bit of a weird one.

Perfectly fine as a wedding/zombie attack nightmare sort of thing.

But I really didnt see quite how this fitted into the REC universe, or maybe just using that to help with marketing it.
