there really hasn't been an all nighter like that since!
okay, firstly the films - sadly this continued the trend of "not great" all nighter line ups that we've had since 2008, one good film (Livid), one okay film (Cold Sweat), one very average and completely out of place film (Faces In The Crowd), and 3 absolutely dreadful films (Bad Meat, Human Centipede 2 and The Watermen). I know HC2 pretty much had to be there because of the controversy and the event that was created, but I really don't see how an awful and obviously unfinished film like Bad Meat could get on the line up.
Having said that though, it was a fun night, the Vue is the best venue for the all nighter we've had imo, the bar area was very spacious and with good seating, and perfect for a beer between films. The whole of the HC2 cast coming was a nice touch, as was that centipede in a tank they brought along...very surreal! I hated the film, but the build up was an interesting event to see. The sloping of seats in the Vue was perfect, unlike at the main event their was no chance of getting peoples heads in your view! The only downside was the air con, when you're trying to stay awake at 4am having a cinema like a sauna really doesn't help.
