Re: Other attractions?

Thanks for the reply!

Yes, I think the Barbican one may be the better option - the Star Wars exhibition is another tenner on top and probably will be full of kids!

Thanks and see you tomorrow!

Other attractions?

Sorry if this isn't the right thread for this but I thought this would be the most likely place it will be spotted. I, like many other Frightfesters, am visiting from outside London and as I will have a bit of time to spare (hopefully!) before the festival starts I was thinking about going to a exhi...

Re: First timers

Welcome to all first timers!

This might also be an opportunity for someone to clarify the rules (e.g. what can we take / not take into the auditorium etc) for the first timers and also as a reminder for the rest of us, plus it does vary from venue to venue.

Re: Thoughts on the schedule so far?

Thanks Mr Benz! That was what I had feared :(

Maybe they'll sit down and have a picnic for most of the running time, being nice and still! ;)

Re: Thoughts on the schedule so far?

I don't know about anyone else, but I'm still procrastinating over which films to see! Does anyone know how shaky the camera work will be for Boots on the Ground ? I get motion sickness but could just about cope with The Blair Witch Project , but if it is worse than that I fear I could struggle to s...

Re: Guests

Will Adam Green be on his own for the Hatchet screening or will he be bringing any guests from the cast?

Has anyone found any trailers for Mayhem or Bad Match yet?

Re: Glasgow Suggestions

On a positive note I did like the Frightfest specific brochures - having got used to having the London programme I always felt this was missing from the Glasgow event, so well done and thank you to whoever progressed the production of this year's brochure! Hopefully this will be a regular feature at...

Re: Glasgow Suggestions

How did people find the wristbands? I unwisely put mine on too tight and couldn't get it off again, so I ended up cutting it off on Friday night. So my wrist now looks like I spent the weekend in a torture p**n movie! Out of the 3 options (lanyard, wristband and stamp) I think the least worst option...

Glasgow Suggestions

Now, before I start hopefully from my other postings it is clear that I thoroughly enjoyed the festival this year, possibly my favourite of all of the years I have attended. However, I wondered if anyone had any thoughts for improvements for future years? I don't want to kick-start too much focus on...

Re: Frightfest Glasgow 2017 Reviews

Just to clarify on Bloodlands after a quick bit of research:
Spoiler:
A shtriga is from Albanian folklore and is actually a vampiric witch so that clears up both what the entity was and also confirms why the two terms of "vampire" and "witch" could be used interchangeably.

Re: Frightfest Glasgow 2017 Reviews

The Night of the Virgin Unfortunately by this stage of the night, on film 7, I was too tired and my legs were giving me too much grief from the inadequate leg-room to really get into this one. The positives include a spattering of humour and some interesting special effects, but some parts of the f...

Re: Frightfest Glasgow 2017 Reviews

Hounds of Love
Another corker, this devastatingly brilliant examination of the dysfunctional relationship between the two main characters - as well as those they come into contact with - is both macabre and fascinating. I did wonder if there was any significance to the 1987 setting though? 9 / 10
