If you don't mind me creeping in from the dark corner's where I hide, I'd like to just jump in the middle of this thread.
I popped my FrightFest cherry last year, after years of living vicariusly through the newsletter and such, and now I'm addicted.
First horror I saw was Night of the Living Dead. I was four. I cried. A lot.
First film I watched by choice was American Werewolf in London and I fell in love with both horror films and special effects from then on. (I fancy myself a bit of an ametuer SPFX artist now... lack of emphasis on the "artist" part.)
Now that I've ranted at you a bit, does anyone mind answering a question?
Does anyone know anymore about the writing competition? Like, do you have to attend the seminar to enter. Coz I want to go, but I want to see Smash Cut too... I like cake, you see.
Anyway, bored you all now, so I'm off to cower under the table again.
Wish you well, and may Evil lose your address when his filofax blows open in the wind.
