I've seen a press screener of Wolfcop and it wasn't as bad as I expected. I kinda hate the current trend for attempts at making modern b-movies (which is why I'm ambivalent to the presence of Zombeavers at FF), but its production values were much higher than its premise would give it credit for. Maybe I enjoyed it because my expectations were so low. I'm definitely looking forward to Dead Snow 2 though, even though I found the original lacking. Should be a blast with the FF crowd.

And damn, you attend a lot of festivals! :o

It's a shame Larry Fessenden's 'BENEATH' hasn't really done the festival circuit or FrightFest- a good example of a decent modern B monster movie.

Wasn't Beneath on at an earlier FF event - the all nigher or something? Unless I dreamt it.

Beneath has never been shown at FrightFest. Larry was a guest one year. And they have shown I sell the Dead, You're Next, The Roost and We are what we are; in previous years.

Sorry if I am repeating something that has been covered elsewhere, but am I correct in thinking that if you see Another on Disco Screen 2 that if you are in the Arrow screen then you would miss both The Samurai and Stage Fright ? Not sure if this applies to other screens - I haven't checked I'm afraid.....
No tears, please. It's a waste of good suffering.

Stanley Kubrick hates the Arrow Screen, apparently.

You'd miss Stage Fright, looks like you'd have about 15 minutes between the end of Another and the start of The Samurai.

That would be if you were in the Horror Channel Screen (Screen 7). Another appears to overlap the Arrow Video Screen showing of Stage Fright by 5 minutes. If you can duck out of Another as the credits start to roll you won't miss much of Stage Fright. The time of the first murder in Stage Fright is:
Spoiler:
5 minutes 30 seconds into the film

Thanks for the responses - yes, I think, barring any delays in the disco screen that I may just make Stage Fright .... Cheers!

Thanks for the responses for my viewing dilemma. For various reasons, I have committed to "Wolfcop" (assuming I get the disco ticket), and it will be interesting as to which of the many views expressed to me, that I will end up agreeing with. Frightfest - Always a journey into the unknown! :green:
