Lineup announced - discussion/thoughts

Post by bounce08 » Fri Jun 27, 2014 2:11 pm

For me, probably the best lineup there's ever been. Most of what I wanted and more, with a few suprises thrown in. I can't wait. For me, I'm happy that I'm finally going to get to see THE GREEN INFERNO and THE BABADOOK!

Well done team FrightFest, you've outdone yourselves once again.

Looking forward to:

THE GREEN INFERNO
OPEN WINDOWS
THE GUEST
THE BABADOOK
SIN CITY: A DAME TO KILL FOR
EXISTS

To, divert discussion away from the negative aspects of ticketing etc.

I think the line up looks good, on paper. films i'm looking forward to:

-the babadook
-starry eyes
-sin city 2
-green inferno
-coherence
-among the living
-the guest
-the samaurai
-the canal

Think the monday looks a bit sketchy but we'll wait and see.

I'm going to do the same thing I've done for the past 15 years and try to go into as many of the films as I can as blind as possible (and no, I don't mean I'm going to close my eyes). Obviously it's impossible to do that with movies like Dead Snow 2 or Sin City and something like The Green Inferno is always going to come with a fair amount of expectation and anticipation. But there's a lot of titles that mean little to me at present and I'm going to try and keep it that way until the August Bank Holiday rolls around. Hopefully that'll ensure I get completely bowled off my feet by some low budget classic (much like last years Cheap Thrills). Although the downside to all this is by playing the ignorance card I do spend all my time in the main screen. Never done a Disco screen yet. Which I sometimes regret when I get a "You missed a gem there Eddie. You should've skipped I Spit On Your Grave 2!" (to be honest I should've just skipped I Spit On Your Grave 2 regardless!)

Does anyone know which of the films across Main and Discovery screens are found footage or shot from a first person perspective?

To paraphrase which films should I avoid like the plague :D

I poured over the line up more than I usually do in order to choose the screen which matches up with the Disco screens, even then there is some cross over. I am very excited by the films on offer especially by by the discovery screens. I suppose I'll make my final decisions based on the guests.

Actually nor do I Rec, Rec 2, Troll Hunter, Blair Witch etc are classics but there is a lot guff. I'm always suspicious of new zombie & found footage films as the are a lot of terrible ones out there but I tend to really enjoy the good ones.

The Expedition (Disco Screen) looks to be found/recovered footage for the most part. From the trailer anyway.

Thank you DJBenz. Unfortunately I suffer with motion sickness when trying to watch this style of film - especially if they run whilst holding the camera... :eek:
