FrightFest 2009

28 August 2009

So, that was a long rest I had.

Thought I might as well post from FrightFest – the annual horror film festval in Leicester Square.  It actually started yesterday evening but I didn’t have a chance to write anything.  Too busy drinking to be honest.

I’m not going to go on about it in too much detail (though I’m sureyou may want to avoid my tweets for a few days if horror films aren’t your thing.

Me and @moviegirlghost have been coming to bit of FrightFest for several years, initially just the odd film, then full days, and this year is the first time we’re here for the full thing (four and a half days).

There’s always a great mix of slightly crappy and really good films from a whole range of sub-genres, from slashers to ghost stories, and gore to just plain WEIRD.

Anyway, I’m currently sat on the floor, kind of right in front of the exit to the main screen in The Empire – Leicester Square and people have just started streaming out of it so I should probable hit “Publish” and get out of the way.

I’ll post laster or tomorrow with a few ill-observed and poorly written thoughts on some of the more notable films.  If you want some real comment, you could do much worse than go over to Total Film‘s coverage or keep an eye on their tweets.

SLIGHT WARNING: Though I’ll try not to throw in any spoilers, inevitably I’ll give something away just by mentioning what sort of film some things are.
