Re: FrightFest October 2020

I certainly wouldn’t make any plans for a physical Glasgow 2021 either

Re: FrightFest October 2020

I’d be pessimistic.

When the state start issuing graphs with criminally bad extrapolation curves on it, the only reason is fear.

Works better than any horror film

Re: HOW TO WATCH

It’s a shame there’s no direct FireTV or console support, there are definitely a couple of films I would have happily bought tickets for. Sadly our holidays reset with furlough, and it’s too early to book time off, so the one I was most interested in (There’s No Such Thing As Vampires) I would just...

Having cats I know all about watching any available seats in my own home disappearing before my own eyes.

Re: FrightFest August

Unsurprising but still a shame.

Maybe a work around it to simply say you're holding a protest, clearly on one gives a crap about guidelines and public health in that instance.

Re: FrightFest August

Reading/Leeds Festival cancelled.

Would FrightFest be the same with half or even a third or quarter of the people in the same auditorium because of social distancing?

Re: FrightFest August

Notting Hill Carnival cancelled...

Though being perfectly honest, if the pubs aren't open by August (which I expect they won't be) then there is even less need to come to London.

Thank heavens I went to Glasgow for my Frightfest fix.

Re: FrightFest August

Makes a change of speculating what films will be on to whether the festival itself will occur. August seems so far away but looking at events at the start of August; Brighton Pride is still going ahead, but the Great British Beer Festival, which was due to be held at Olympia, is cancelled. At least ...

Re: FrightFest Glasgow 2020 (Glasgow Film Festival)

VFW I was expecting schlock and exploitation-lite but got a great buddies in a siege movie instead. A stellar cast with great performances all round, characters that are well defined and you care about makes a simple story very effective. My only gripe is the fast cutting and slightly dark lighting...

Re: FrightFest Glasgow 2020 (Glasgow Film Festival)

FATALE COLLECTIVE: BLEED 6 short films, that were all rather short and pointless and said nothing other than women could make films. Who knew? BUTT BOY Don't quite know where to begin or end with this. I'd simply say, much like Cleansing Hour was better trying to be funny rather than horror, this t...

SAINT MAUD

A fine ensemble piece, from acting and writing, to production, design and direction.

A quality scare in it too that in an age of predictable jump-scare films is refreshing to witness.

Very good.

Re: FrightFest Glasgow 2020 (Glasgow Film Festival)

ZOMBIE FOR SALE If ever a film had more endings than The Return of the King then this was it. Though to its credit, each extra bit did have a good idea to it so I can't really find that much fault. Well structured and acted, if padded and a bit too slow paced at times, it was full of an inventivene...
