You must have missed the Discovery Screen films as well, though, presumably?
Oh indeedy. I think it's great that Alan and co. decided to give us the extra choice and I'm certainly not going to moan about having another screen competing with the main one and supposedly breaking up the community spirit of the whole thing (as some have). But... once I'd thought about it and where my preferences lay, I decided I was going to encamp myself in the main screen for the duration of Frightfest. I knew people who were making occasional trips into screen 4 anyway so I soon got told if I'd missed out on something good or not. But as I say, screen one was the place for me. And once I'd chosen that course of action then I'd inevitably settled on the films I intended to see. So in my eyes I only missed out on one film (although obviously there were another 9 on at screen 4). That's not bad for me. Most Frightfests I seem to miss out on a good 2 or 3 movies (often the late night ones or early screenings of the day) due to tiredness after the nightbus journey home and the quick turnaround to the next day... 4 hours sleep each night seemed to be the norm this year! In fact I impressed myself by only giving in and dropping off just the once during Case 39 on the last day. Everything else, the good, the bad, and Giallo, kept me wide awake. If I'd realised just how bad Zombie Women of Satan was going to be though I'd have stuck around for Black and had a lay-in on Monday morning instead!
