Hello WraithApe

This would indeed include all FrightFest events. Loved seeing The Happiness of the Katakuris back in 2002, this was the first FrightFest that my wife (then girlfriend) attended. Also Creep was a highlight from 2014.

First: Don't be Afraid of the Dark (2011)
Last: Tragedy Girls (2017)
Best: So hard to pin down one film, had such good fun with so many. I think the highlight isn't actually film related, but the introduction from Ross Noble the year that Stitches played. Hands down the best intro ever.

Ross Nobel was in 2012. Doesn't seem that long ago. Sure was great having him intro the festival.

That whole interplay between Ross and the crowd was immense, as he got darker and each time the audience laughed he said something along the lines of "ah, that kind of an audience."

Nope, definitely Stitches - I was there for that one too and yeah, best intro I've seen at FF to date! Adam Green's intro for Vic Crowley last year got a lot of love, but Ross Noble had the crowd in...

Nails was the second horror film he acted in, Stitches was the first and the one he was at Frightfest for. :)

First: Cold Prey (2007 - had Saturday and Sunday day passes)
Last: Tragedy Girls (2017)
Best: Hard to pick one but for consistency, recommendability and repeat-watching value I'd say Sleep Tight, although that might be because I almost didn't bother with it at all and I was properly chuffed I did. 2012 was the first year I had a full weekend pass and a good year altogether, as I remember.

I'll go along with that, and add that the best Q&A IMO was Alan Moore after Show Pieces in 2014. I would happily have sat and listened to him all afternoon :D
