For those that didn't make it to the disco screen, a chance to see it at home. :)

Re: The Holding

Contest to win a copy of this movie on DVD, if anyone was a fan. :) No Blu-ray? I thought we were getting past DVD-only new releases. :( There's no blu in the press release. It's very common for lower profile films to get DVD-only releases. Lionsgate too, so it's not like it's an indie label that's...

Re: Chillerama

Lordy, another bullet dodged from the reactions on this thread. :shock: I decided to get the last tube home and give Chillerama a miss, looks like I made the right choice. :D

Re: Deadheads

I liked it too... it was sweet, warm, very funny, liked the characters... ...the ending could be seen as a bit of a letdown, but I chose to read it as a send up of usual rom-com ending, so in that sense it was good. I think the ending was saved by the hazmat suit guys high-fiving over the kissing c...

It's got Billy Murray in it, that's all we need to know (although happily someone was garotting him)
:lol:

Forgot to add, I wasn't blown away by the Knights of Badassdom previews either. Seems like one for the, "Dude! Awesome!" brigade.

Re: Breaks

I actually found it quicker to nip out to one of the fast food places nearby and use the toilets there, rather than queue in the Empire loos. Breaks seemed to be longer after every couple of films, at least that's when I managed to get out and update my festival diary. It was nicer to get out in the...

Add me to your minority, I loved it. :)

Re: Cockneys vs Zombies footage

I liked the CvZ footage, it looked like it *could* be fun. Time will tell though.

Strippers Vs Werewolves I didn't like the look of at all, but it was a rough cut trailer so maybe the finished product will look a bit better.

Stalker was too hard to call from an isolated scene.

Re: Bad Behaviour

Tsk, poor show. If it's his stuff and he wants to sell it, fair play, but to grab handfulls of stuff to sell on and deny someone the opportunity to enjoy it is not on. :(

Re: The Woman

I feel almost alone in not enjoying this at all. It just seemed like an attempt to get as many controversial issues as possible into a 90 minute (or whatever) film. Didn't find it shocking in the slightest and for the most part found it a little dull. It was beautifully shot, Pollyana McIntosh was s...

Re: Bad Behaviour

I was sat in HH, which seemed to be mostly press/fim-makers and everyone was very well behaved (as you'd expect). The only issue was during the first film when two women sat in the seats beside me and proceeded to start with the mobile phone. As they'd missed the introduction and arrived late I thou...

Re: Troll Hunter

Complete disappointment for me, needed a good 10 minutes chopped from the runtime to improve the pace. 6/10

Re: Newbies!

First time at Frightfest for me too, coming for the whole shebang and covering it for my website (see sig below). Last time I was at any kind of film fest in London it was Shock Around the Clock ('89) and Splatterfest ('90) both at The Scala when it was an actual proper cinema. Damn that makes me fe...
