Re: BRING BACK THE Q & As

We have decided that having a flood of people walking out in front of the visiting guests when they are being interviewed due to other films starting or limited scheduled breaks is really not a good look. It can't be something the guests are unfamiliar with if they've been at other festivals though...

Strong Year?

So... for the first time in a good number of years I was unable to attend, but I've been watching intently while running the press for my site remotely. My writers at the festival seem to have had a ball, certainly there were very few poor ratings on the pre-festival screeners we reviewed and from w...

Re: Discovery/first blood tks

It's not for me to cast aspersions on a certain FrightFest director whose choice these two films were, but on the other hand I have to put my hand up and confess that I had input into Bubba's Chili Parlour and Zombie Women of Satan Fun fact: I shared a flat in Gateshead with Zombie Women of Satan d...

The Devil's Doorway is found footage I believe.
Trailer coming up as "private" on the site...
You can watch it on the film's IMDB page.

Very old-school style (the entire movie is 4:3 aspect ratio) so I'm not sure if it will suffer the usual shaky-cam that is mostly intolerable to people who get affected by it.

Have there been any emails recently? I'm on Hotmail, but I don't think I have had any for sometime.....
Hotmail has a notoriously stringent spam filter. Definitely check your spam folder, if they even managed to reach it.

Re: Emails

Have you tried adding that email to your contacts? That usually whitelists an address in Gmail.

Re: Fright Fest after parties Friday/Saturday (eg phoenix club), etc?

Hi, IIRC last year there was an FF after party held at the Phoenix Artists' Club just off Charing Cross Rd. I didn't get to go there last year and was in the area last night (Wednesday 25th July '18), and stopped outside there briefly and enquired about an after party this year. The door staff said...

Blood Fest does not have a uk release date yet.
Better let Showcase (not Cineworld, my bad) know about it then: https://www.showcasecinemas.co.uk/film- ... VCtrkJc.97

Re: 2018 Lineup Announced

The addition of the 4K Halloween screenings appears to have replaced the Blood Fest screenings so assume the latter has been withdrawn. Don’t know whether it was brought forward but apparently it’s showing in Cineworld cinemas from the 17th August so its inclusion in the festival became pointless.

I’m going to say it’s not going be the new Halloween then, not at that hour in a small screen.

So... remember last year when they had a HATCHET 1 showing planned, and it was revealed that it was a brand new HATCHET film?

That was curious.

Anyway, on a totally different note - there's a 4K restoration of the original HALLOWEEN playing this year.
Holy shit dude... :o
