It’s taken me several years to figure out the gist of Frightfest, for example how a mainly indoor event with the smallest of posing boards can claim to host some 70+ “Premieres” (ranging from “UK” to “World”) in just five days. But last year was a bit of a watershed, and thanks to the likes of Disney I’ve become a lot more comfortable with the ‘fluid’ nature of what a premiere can, rather than should, be.
So, last year I actually bought a ticket to see a film, and had a pretty decent time. This year… three tickets.
The first one - the opening night premiere of “Crawl”
Here’s how it went down:
ICED PEPSI IN TOW, WE RESUME WITH ‘CRAWL’….
The Movie? I liked it! I’m a bit of a fan of any kind of creature-feature, whether crocodile-, shark-, piranha-, giant-ape-, giant-lizard- or if need be xenomorph-based. And this was pretty effective for what it was - I liked it!
And that? Was that. Back at the station by 11:08 just in time to miss my train by 30seconds, back at The Homestead by 23:49, “Come To Daddy” done by about 1:15am… this journal done by <checks> 2:29am. Fortunately I’ve taken tomorrow off work….
