Re: FrightFest ticketing 2015

I'm looking at that bar and starting to feel quite sleepy. Knowing my luck I'll doze off before it gets to the end and I'll miss my turn! And once I've done this queue it's straight off to Wembley Stadium to queue up outside so I can grab a decent spot for AC/DC later this evening!

Re: FrightFest ticketing 2015

Yeah, that is strange. Just clicked on the link myself to have a look and it's put me in a queue as well. I order tickets for Liverpool games every year and normally if you go on there too early it tells you as much and that you'll have to try again at the proper time. So don't know what's happening...

Re: FrightFest 2015 dates for you diary

Also is the screen allocation just going to be random? I was wondering this too... Hopefully if it's all being done by a ticketing agency you'll have access to a seating plan online and be able to pick seats/screens from that? The same as when booking tickets for concerts? If not it's going to be a...

Re: Frightfest's worst movie ever?

Isle of Dogs closely followed by Dementiamania... I really liked dementamania and didn't get why everyone thought it was so bad! According to the IMDB that was supposed to have had an official UK release yesterday! (1st September). As I remember it, it was ok. Certainly better than Isle of Dogs any...

Re: Thoughts on FrightFest @ Vue so far..

Yeah, we noticed that sickly sweet smell as well. Didn't realise it was there all weekend though. Somebody in the area has probably got a room full of cannabis plants and forgot to shut a window!

Re: Housebound

I really enjoyed this and although the mix of humour, suspense and violence didn't always work, occasionally making it feel a bit muddled about what kind of film it wanted to be, overall I loved it. Initially I thought the haunted house angle was going to turn out to be the mother deliberately tryin...

Re: Open Windows

8/10 here too and my favourite film from Sunday. Loved the hi tech Rear Window first half. Doesn't work quite as well once the Kill List guy turns up due to his ever so slightly bonkers reasons for kidnapping the Jill Goddard character (to boost the numbers on her fan site?!? Yeah, right...). That s...

Oh come on. This is ridiculous. How can I cast my vote when Shockwave Darkside is nowhere to be found on the list?!?

I'll get me coat.

Re: Thoughts on FrightFest @ Vue so far..

The only moan I have over the whole weekend was the Bodyguards/PA People around Robert Englund, Sub-Human Sc*m. Okay, Professional autograph hunters are a nuisance, because they run into the screens and have no interest in the films themselves, but the way Englund's people shoved people around and ...

Re: I survived a zombie hollocaust

Well it was certainly screened at the right time. As an undemanding late night last film it was okay. Very silly broad humour and some decent gore with a "nerd triumphs against the odds" storyline. Pretty much what you'd expect in fact. Wouldn't watch it again. 5 / 10 Agreed. Felt like it was tryin...

Re: Late Phases

I enjoyed this and was pleased they didn't hang around before getting the first werewolf assault in (done effectively in silhouette for the most part). It felt like it needed an injection of pace in the second half though, before the big showdown arrived. Would also have preferred less cute looking ...

Re: V/H/S Viral

I loved the first two segments (Dante the Great and Parallel Monsters) and while the skateboarding story took a while to get going it came good in the end. It was just that wraparound/linking tale about the possessed ice cream van being chased by the cops that irritated thanks to the overuse of dist...

Re: Shockwave Darkside 3D

I kept thinking of Team America: World Police while watching this junk, in that the grating mind numbing tedium of the images/audio assaulting my senses became so unbearable I tried eating my own head. It can't be done obviously. But I gave it a good go throughout the seeming eternity this drivel wa...

Re: The Harvest

This was my favourite film from Saturday. When we got to finally going down into the basement my first thought was "hold on, which one of them is Andy then?!?!" although it didn't really matter if you picked up on the twist or not as the real horror was what the parents were trying to get away in th...

Re: The Samurai

I thought it was the best looking film of the festival with excellent cinematography throughout. That said I did think the various metaphors for the cop's suppressed sexual feelings were overly forced. I think a subtler approach would have worked better. I mean, the poor sod has got a small handgun ...
