Re: Hobo with a Shotgun @FrightFest Glasgow

Shameful and despicable. If this is the way genre cinema's going, I might well give it up. Whoa! *Mod hat on* Why shameful and despicable? Strong words, but why? You need to back up that kind of statement, really. I refer the right honourable lady to the review I put up on my blog at the start of t...

The Real Deal? Let's Scare Film Fans to Death

Hey guys, As you might know, the BFI/Kim Newman treated film fans to a rare screening of Let's Scare Jessica to Death on Friday night. It was an old print with a slight tint, liked for its quaintness and historic quality by some, disliked for its lack of pictorial clarity by others. What are your vi...

Re: Appluading Death Scenes

I did get shouted at last night at home for laughing at a documentary on a serial killer in hong kong who chopped up his victims bodies Sometimes stuff is so slapstick you can't help it. There's a great scene in Beautiful Girl Hunter (AKA Star of David) where a serial rapist and murderer has a litt...

Re: Appluading Death Scenes

Why wouldn't you applaud the torture of a bunch or brutal rapists????? Of course its appropriate. Put yourself in the victims position. Why applaud in Bedevilled and not in I Spit on your Grave??. The thing for me is that it isn't always the victim's guts that are being applauded. I've been in scre...

What do you think would have made the documentary a a better fit? Different timing etc?

Re: Scary horror

totally agree with you sherbetbizarre, it's been a long time since ive had to look through my fingers at a film. .. or indeed at that really interesting spot at the bottom right/left of the screen. Had my eyes firmly fixed there for the BFI showing of Let's Scare Jessica to Death the other night an...

For what it's worth, Charles Band's classics are definitely my guilty pleasure. Anyone who has a problem with Leech Girl has a problem with me ;-)

I'd recommend The St Francisville Experiment as much better than Blair Witch.

Re: Trailers / Clips

They can travel billions of miles through space. They can decimate and entire world. They cannot see you if you put down the blinds and hide behind the kitchen counter. Awful. Maybe they just have an olde worlde concept of appropriate behaviour - trample entire continents 'for the good of mankind' ...

Re: Getting to know you...

There's a giant toxic squirrel in Troma's 'Class of Nuke'm High 2: Subhumanoid meltdown'. I love squirrels too (not literally you understand). Awesome film! Best giant toxic squirrel horror movie ever made, bar none . How many squirrel horrors are there? I do love squirrels and have the dubious hon...

Re: Genre guidelines

Brilliant post there Mr. Bill, agree with you completely. Except for the bit about FrightFest films being always selected for extremity, I expect a large amount of that at FF but not every film. Plenty of room for Monsters and fun horror like Trick'r'Treat. BTW I personally think Serbian Film is a ...

Re: Genre guidelines

Because I am anal... The Film Studies Dictionary classes a thriller as a "loose genre term referring to any film that generates suspense and excitement as a major aspect of its narrative..." The description goes on to say how it is generally considered an adjunct to other genres. Think the distincti...
