Re: How Film4 FrightFest will work in 2014

Ok, so what has/hasn't sold out? I just tried the Vue day pass link again (after seeing that day passes went back on sale at 7pm) and am still getting the Error-404 not found - placeholder. Am I right in thinking that day passes therefore haven't yet been re-released? There is very little communicat...

Re: How Film4 FrightFest will work in 2014

Cheers iomega, you may have just made my day :D Are you able/allowed to say how many, and for what days? Completely understand that there's been trouble with the purchasing system through no fault of the FF boys, but Vue's fault, so I can see why it would make more sense to take everything down. I s...

Re: How Film4 FrightFest will work in 2014

Out of interest - how many tickets did the event reduce by in the move to Vue? I'm guessing it was a significant-enough amount to make chaos ensue and have everyone who was having trouble with festival passes buy up day/single passes instead? I mean, it's great that the festival's sold out for the f...

Re: How Film4 FrightFest will work in 2014

From what I understand according to their Twitter feed, Vue are now saying all day passes are sold out? If that's true I'll be devastated. Money crap means we have never been able to do the full festival but always gone for Sat/Sun day passes. I know I'm now one sob story among many, by the sounds o...

Re: What films do you want for FrightFest 2014?

As fun as they can be, I'm done with Nazi Zombies for 2014 :green: I'd love to see The Babadook at a genre festival but I suspect it'll be long out by the time FF2014 rolls around. I can't think of anything off the top of my head which is in the upcoming list that I'd be desperate to see at FF. But ...

Re: What did you LIKE about Frightfest past?

Honestly, I know you said films are too subjective, but for me one major part of the 2012 festival I loved to bits was the Shorts segment. I just felt that all of the different shorts, dotted about here and there in the programme last year, got a bit lost/forgotten. It was nice to give them a chunk ...

Re: ACCOMMODATION 2013!!

We stayed at the Z Hotel Soho, which is a decent option to consider for those who're only on day passes, like we were for Sat/Sun. It has complimentary cheese and wine apparently, which they tried to get me to stay for on checkin, but which would've meant missing No One Lives :lol: It was clean, qui...

Re: Random Weekend Thoughts...

I heard you the first time :lol: I accept, it's as disturbing to go tell someone to turn off their phone. But you have to understand it's really jarring to have someone shout out 'Turn off your phone!!' in the middle of a plot you're engrossed in. I don't really know the way round it - both are irri...

Shouting turn off your bloody phone. ( I'm sorry somebodies phone ruined your enjoyment, but I can't see it, I can however hear you shouting out turn off your phone ) This. Yes. I agree with this. Some girl or other did it during.... The Last Days, I think. Granted, I didn't like that film very muc...

Re: Sunday's Best Film?

Sure is Mr Street; this years Chained. But Chained was actually pretty good! :) Seriously, I am amazed about Dark Tourist. I thought it was utter toss. Its nail in the coffin for me was Cudlitz in the Q&A. I know a lot of people thought he was interesting and expanded on the character's background,...

Re: The Last Days

It was a bit hard to understand the exact nature of "The Panic", and to work out quite why society had collapsed so very quickly. Yeah, this was the problem I found with it, too. The Panic wasn't really executed very well, I didn't think. There was that bit with the massive citywide power cut (?? I...

Re: Conspiracy

I think Sherbertbizarre said it much more eloquently than I could, but my only tuppenceworth is that I didn't get the child abuse/possible paedophilia angle at all. When we see the bit with the crying child, it's purely because the Club have: kidnapped Jim's family - and yes, are possibly being mena...

Re: Random Weekend Thoughts...

I'm greatly saddened by the news, its the most comfortable cinema in Leicester Sq, i remember seeing jurassic park there when it first came out and had many great film memories since. Does anyone know the reason why? Does anyone know when, i definitely want to go there for the last film it ever sho...

Re: In Fear

I liked it. The idea of being lost in the dark, in the middle of nowhere, going round in circles, is genuinely scary to me, although there is always the feeling that things will somehow magically sort themselves out if you can survive until daylight. This! I even caught myself thinking exactly that...
