Re: Victor Crowley

Depressingly cheap, toes the line between a comedy shot with Blumhouse leftovers and a pretentious Troma. Adam Green still gets a few inspired gags, but the first Hatchet was something else.

Mindhack

I thought I should start this one as there were literally eight people at my screening - what did everyone else know that we didn't??? Anyway: imagine a light version of Mr. Robot that maintains the same Matrix/Fight Club feel but more cyberpunk and teen friendly. Sometimes it makes Besson's Lucy lo...

Re: Discovery Screen Tickets

I'm finally done. Funniest part was when I spent a good hour trying to get a ticket for Fashionista while my wife was selecting some other movie first, and then somehow she got Fashionista before me. In the end "only" a couple of choices went sold out while I was insisting on playing bingo on the sa...

Re: Discovery Screen Tickets

It's getting even more ridiculous:

- only one seat available
- I click on it
- says it's taken
- refreshes the page automatically
- it's still orange
- I click again
- repeat (15 minutes)

Re: Discovery Screen Tickets

Still on the same movie after 40 mins. I'm bad at wack-a-mole.

Re: Discovery Screen Tickets

Feels like a videogame. I've been selecting random seats for the same movie for 20 minutes now, only to restart everytime.

Re: Discovery Screen Tickets

The concept of "queue" and "reservation" is totally missing. Right now wasting time clicking 15 times for the same movie, selecting a seat than gets taken by somebody else and restarting. Not too happy.

Re: Issue with booking - please help

Thanks. For now I've contacted them on Twitter, been advised to use the telephone number on the Frightfest contact page but it's busy (not sure though if it's really busy or it's because that same page says that they're only open Monday to Friday...)
Might try Facebook as well.

Issue with booking - please help

Guys I've got an issue already. The way the system work is that you select seats and then they take it off from you if meanwhile they've been purchased by someone else. This might happen very quickly without any alert, you just see your ticket disappearing from your basket if you're not quick enough...

Re: Discovery screen 'nepotism'.

Same. I always took it as a generic "try a more risky proposition" rather than "discover a new talent" at all costs.

Re: FrightFest ticketing 2015

Ok, second try went smooth.

I didn't need to use that back-button trick (hit it if you're stuck after selecting the seats) but I would still say it's the most important piece of information for those still trying to buy...

Good stuff, see you in August!

Re: FrightFest ticketing 2015

If it just sits there when you try and add your tickets to the basket, then push the back button on your bowser
Too late for me now but thanks, it's useful

Re: FrightFest ticketing 2015

if you're on the buying section for longer than 15 mins then you're kicked out and put back to the end of the queu
I thought that the concept of having a queue was that if you pass it then you should be in a place where the server has no reason to get stuck again...
