Re: Frighfest Halloween

Thanks Ian,

Do we know yet at what time the Halloween tickets will be made available? Just wondering as I might be flying on that day and hence may not be able to log in at the time myself....

Re: Overall Thoughts

I thought the Banshee Chapter was underrated when it screened a few years back - it definitely appealed to me too!

Re: Personal safety

Although probably worth bearing in mind that some of us come from sleepier towns and also are not necessarily familiar with the geography - I'd like to think I have been coming to Frightfest long enough to know my way around the environs, but if streets started to be closed then getting around effic...

Thanks DJBenz - by the sounds of it I was fortunate to avoid Adult Babies !

Re: Overall Thoughts

I know this was in The Terror of Hallow's Eve, but which was the other film?

As anyone growing up in the eighties will know, "Timmy" conjures up images of Timmy Mallett and there is surely nothing more horrifying than that!

Re: Redwood

Thanks for the replies - it sounds like I didn't miss much, but I will try to seek it out when it gets released.

Random Music Questions

Firstly, well done to whoever took the effort to either prepare or procure or supply the music played before the films - it was great to hear many classics associated with the genre! Particularly enjoyed Cry Little Sister , which I haven't heard for years. Now I have two random music questions from ...

Given Adam's comments at the showing if anyone feels my spoiler in my OP is too spoilery I can delete it.

Re: The Glass Coffin

In terms of the reveal I was thinking along the lines of an actress taking such extravagant revenge against another actress for stealing a part, which didn't really work for me. Plus the somewhat random affliction which made the antagonist look like a hag from hell. Still, the scenery at the end was...

Overall Thoughts

Just some random thoughts on the festival films overall. Trends included fun films and horrors directed by / starring women. Maybe I didn't make the right screen selections and perhaps the films aren't out there right now, but there was a scarcity of hard-hitting, suspenseful or thought-provoking fi...

Re: Best and worst film?

Tragedy Girls and Better Watch Out are the two joint top of my list, with Psychopaths at the bottom, although the latter is partly due to my high hopes beforehand, so maybe I'm being a little harsh on it.

Re: Tragedy Girls

Hyped before the fest and before the film and it certainly delivered. I caught myself with a big cheesy grin on my face seveal times during the film and I had plenty of fun. A couple of the jokes either didn't hit the mark or were lost in translation, but now I'm being picky! The interplay between t...

Re: The Terror of Hallow's Eve

Loved the practical effects and monsters, but it felt a little horror-lite at times and I wasn't wholly sure about the ending. Nevertheless, a very good first horror movie from the director for whom this was clearly a labour of love. I'd be interested to see further exploration of the mythos and cre...
