I'm winding everyone up by claiming they're vampires because the Father looks at his reflection at the beginning like he's never seen it. It's really bugging those people lol.

I read Grau is making a horror trilogy which is pretty f'in good news.

Haha! Trilogy? About what? Sounds interesting. Nice to cyber meet you anyway, pretty new to board and FF, went to Sunday 2010, Halloween and a few other events FF have been involved with. Can't wait to do full five days this year, might be flying solo as I'm not sure any of my friends would be up for it.

ditto all the way. I reckon I might be able to find someone to come on one of the days but that'll be all. everyone seems pretty friendly so I reckon it'll be a laugh! well up for it

Saw "Wakewood" the new hammer film at the prince charles, london yesterday (also out on DVD at the same time).

Have to say its pretty damned good. Has a really creepy feel to it and is a credible stab at a modern day Wicker Man type rural horror. A Young couple loose their daughter to a dangerous dog, and are given hope by creepy Timothy Spall who says he can bring her back from the dead but only for three days. This sets up the scene for an interesting horror ala The Monkey's Paw.

Spall is particularly creepy as the head of the "village".

Quite Gory, some great jump out of your seat moments, and a really malevolent atmospere make it the best home produced horror in quite some time. Good to see Hammer back in business.

You're scared of mice and spiders, but oh-so-much greater is your fear that one day the two species will cross-breed to form an all-powerful race of mice-spiders, who will immobilize human beings in giant webs in order to steal cheese.

Demons is ace, ridiculous gore and a gratuitous 80s soundtrack. Just got back from watching Les Diaboliques at BFI. Not seen it before, but so glad I did - creepy and with classic twist! going to see wake wood on Thursday - so up for it. Also got F on DVD but waiting for the weekend for that one.

F is great hope you enjoy it.

Demons is fun i love some of the practical effects and make up which for me make it a cut above most other standard cheesey 80s stuff

Went to a BFI screening of Les Diaboliques (courtesy of a Frightfest comp - thankyou gents). Really enjoyed it - had a vague awareness of the plot but it really took some interesting directions. And the remastered print was beautiful too.

Watched Martyrs yesterday, a mate didn't so much recommend it as tell me it was really upsetting and he wasn't wrong. In fact, 24 hours later I'm still trying to work out exactly how I feel about it. It's certainly a powerful film, and it's left me with a lot of mixed emotions which is rare and commendable. Hmmmmm.
