Two more FrightFest events announced for Halloween
7th Sep 06
Yes, we're still recovering from the mammoth FrightFest event held recently in London (our three-way review of the whole event by myself, Zomblee and Soulmining is coming soon!) which was perhaps the best Frightfest event ever held.
Yet rather than let all the dust settle on the great films shown, the great guests who attended (Guillermo del Toro being a particular highlight), the tonnes of freebies given away and the fantastic atmosphere, the FrightFest organisers have announced two more one-day events, scheduled to take place at the ICA in London around Halloween.
Details are still sketchy, but here's what Paul McEvoy has posted on the FrightFest forum;
Event 1 - October 31st
ICA (The Mall - near Buckingham Palace)
New prints of Creepshow and Meet The Feebles - chosen because of non-availability on UK dvd - and both great of course.
Event 2 - November 4th
Five films - either four or five will be UK previews / premieres with possibly one retro slot. This event will start at 9pm approx and go on til approx 9am the next morning so no need for accommodation.
The usual surprises and extras and intros etc.
The ICA has its own box office and will be handling the tickets. We have to confirm part / all of the programme by September 18th and we will be making big announcements around this time.
Screen 1 at the ICA has just over 150 seats. This should be a cracking event - back to the old skool shock around the clock gigs. So come along and spend the night with us!
Sounds good to us - we'll hopefully be there...
Possible films to be showing on November 4th (as mentioned by some of the Frightfest forum posters) include The Reaping, The Visting, Hot Fuzz, The Return, Tenacious D - The Pick of Destiny, The Fountain, Deja Vu, Bug, Black Christmas, Disorder, The Heirloom, Sejtanov Ratnik, Salvage and The Abandoned.
18th Mar 05 'Golden Leg' Fung is a disgraced soccer star looking for a team to coach. 'Steel Leg' Sing is a young martial artist looking for an outlet through which to bring kung-fu back to the masses. Can you see where this is going?
