I'm sure we've had a thread like this in previous years. Anyway, post 'em if you got 'em. If you're blogging, running or writing for a site or just want to share a link to a cool article about Frightfest you found online.

Hello! I'll be doing lots of film reviews and coverage for the horror/sci-fi website Daily Dead, which should start going up from day one of the festival ( There's a lot of films I can't wait to see/write about this year =)

Also, in terms of random coverage, this is from last year, but I really like this piece on FrightFest by Anne Billson, thought it was a really lovely article that sums up everything I love about the festival (I'm currently interning/temping at The Telegraph, so I'm a bit biased! But it's a great piece) ... -seen.html

This is only the second year I've done the preview podcasts and it's a real labour of love. So would love to know what Frightfesters think.

Liked your coverage leytonrocks - great podcasts too! What recording equipment did you use out of interest - sounded like a studio.

One thing - and not a criticism - you've got an extraneous "L" in Paul McEvoy's name in your Day 1 coverage.

My overview of the weekend here:

There's always one typo and it's always a person's name DOH! ... I'll get that fixed

Thank you for positive feedback on the podcast... I have a Macbook Pro and the most up to date Garageband. I record Skype called directly into Garageband using Soundflower and Line In apps to trick the computer into creating two channels within the computer - lord know how this works but it does.

I then use the Condensed Microphone filter in Garageband to take the edge off the voices

I'm glad it sounds so good... my office is in a quiet part of east London so that helps too

Onwards and upwards
