Re: Thoughts on FrightFest @ Vue so far..

But, the first floor bar is a good breakout area and a space to catch up with friends who are in the other screens. It's the first year so there were alway...

Re: All Cheerleaders Die

Don't worry Frank, I'm contributing to the discussions. But, this is a great forum for posting full thoughts on movies to an intelligent crowd - and all feedback is welcome... Chris - yeah, saw the reviews have been lukewarm. I thought there was a lot going on under the surface as well as delivering...

Re: The Green Inferno

Think it was because she didn't want to jeopardise a way of life that had survived for hundreds of years and was now being threatened.

Despite the fact they tried to circumcise her and ate her friends. I liked the film, but it's viewpoints were definitely muddled.

Re: The Harvest

Yeah, I thought it was disturbing and emotionally exhausting, despite being essentially a kid's mystery story. Be interesting to see what certifcate it gets - it's a PG13 in the States, but reckon it could get a 15 over here for subject matter. Be a shame if so as teens will like it I reckon. But, i...

The Harvest

Hi all,

If you only see one film on Saturday, make it The Harvest. It left me exhilarated and exhausted!

Re: The Green Inferno

Decent as a visceral horror experience, but felt the message of the film was muddled and Roth never got a handle on how to depict the tribe and avoid accusations of insensitivity.

But, the entrance into the village was genuinely unnerving.

Shamlessly posting my review here!

Re: TOP 5 MOST ANTICIPATED FILMS

1. Among the Living
2.The Guest
3. Another
4. V/H/S: Viral
5. Sin City 2

Although I have a quiet confidence that The Green Inferno will also be good value for money!

Re: The Dyatlov Pass Incident

Hi all, Here's an interview I did with Gemma Atkinson and Holly Goss on TDPI at this year's FrightFest. Both were great, with Gemma Atkinson demonstrating a really good movie knowledge. And, want to know which superheroes they'd most like to play? All in here... http://bit.ly/19VT0Zs Hope you're all...

Buying tickets

Buying tickets for the all-nighter - is that done through the Vue website or is there a sleepy (and chilly) queue?
