Re: Cherry Tree

Woeful, although I did think some of the close ups of the centipedes were pretty good. I used to work in Cork, so I quite enjoyed picking out the locations. It's also bought me a two hour break at Grimmfest to go and have a big dinner and a pint, so I can thank it for that. Otherwise just dumb as fu...

Re: Scherzo Diabolico

It did occur to me that this was a parody.... for some reason the director decided to go back to Mexico and make a film which intentionally looked like it was shot on a camcorder in 1988 with a cast of telenovela actors, an improvised script and a budget of $3,000. But I suspect that's just wishful...

The Lesson

I couldn't find a thread about this, but there were definitely other people there too :) . Despite the micro-budget, this was one of my favourites of the whole festival; I thought the Robert Hands' central performance was award-winning stuff and the rest of the performances were solid and likeable e...

Re: Halloween All-Dayer/Nighter 2015

German Angst is on at Grimmfest, so unlikely. I dont know if there's an 'exclusivity' clause anywhere in terms of the films being new or exclusive to FF, but I do think that logic says people are less likely to fork out for something with a high proportion of films that they've already seen. I'm wai...

Re: Tube Strike Planned

I've only been in the Brixton one (which is pretty great), but they've opened a branch in Covent Garden according to the website: thecraftbeerco.com.

That's my down time sorted, if I can muster up the patience to go near Covent Garden on a Bank Holiday weekend.

Re: Tube Strike Planned

Can you not change train tickets to get in earlier? Unfortunately not, cheap ticket for specific trains. Not to worry, if it's chaos when I get off the train, I'll just walk. Always need a shower when I get to my accommodation thanks to London's permanently sticky and hot atmosphere, so it'll be no...

Re: Tube Strike Planned

I'm at Kings Cross and planning to stick my head round the door at the tube station around 4.30 to see how it's going - if it doesn't look too bad I'll head into town then and if it's starting to get chaotic there's plenty of time to walk. I wasn't in London for the last one, so I don't know how it ...

Re: FrightFest ticketing 2015

I had to sit in my hotel lobby (booked in the belief that I'd be queuing, and work arranged around it so too late to cancel) and cross my fingers that they wouldn't dump me off the wifi after I'd checked out and that my battery wouldn't go before I got through. Joined at 1156, 58 minutes of waiting ...

Re: Best lineup yet?

I think the lineup is incredibly strong. I worked out that the Arrow screen schedule suits me best and made my plan with that in mind, so it was fortunate that I got the seat I wanted as I didn't have any sort of contingency for the others :s. I have one clash (Shut In or The Nightmare, although hav...

Re: Frightfest travel

There are plenty of 5 and 6 quid Funfare tickets now on the National Express site for August 27th - I looked at Leeds, Manchester, Newcastle and Birmingham to London Victoria. I don't know about the return date, but they'd be handy for anybody who doesn't mind splitting the journey to save money. I ...

You think? I thought Kill List was great, although I think Neil Maskell's a superb actor so admittedly I'll watch pretty much anything with him in it.

Re: FrightFest ticketing 2015

There is no sharp practice going on. We would never chisel FrightFesters. I have double checked, as I wanted to be sure of my facts. We are as new to this as everyone. Apologies Ian - I should have been clearer and wasn't inferring that you'd try to stitch festivalgoers up. My opinion of online tic...

Re: FrightFest ticketing 2015

Well I'm not sure it is if you're buying more than one? 5% of the pass price (£185) is £9.24, making a festival pass £194.24 total. If the booking fee is 5% of the pass price per booking then 10 passes would be £1859.24, but if it's per ticket then they would be £1942.40. Assuming each of the ten pe...

Frightfest travel

Just thought I'd post for anybody planning on travelling by train that the advance rail tickets for the Thursday and Friday (27th and 28th August) go on sale in the morning, or at least for anybody using the East Coast main line they do. The ones for the following week will be next Friday. They norm...

Re: FrightFest ticketing 2015

Is the £185 the only fee to pay, there won't be any hidden charges - booking fee, postage, transaction fee, etc? I'd like to know this too. I've not long booked all my Summer Screen tickets and Ticketmaster have already had enough out of my bank account in made up addons for the time being, or I'm ...
