10th Fantastic Films Weekend 10 - 12 June 2011
« on: 07 May 2011 - 10:00 »

The full itinerary is now on the website!

"Our tenth edition is deliberately retro in mood. Wallow in some of the best from Hammer and Amicus. Soak up the blood-soaked delights of a gaggle of female vampires. Re-acquaint yourselves with Messrs Cushing, Lee and Price, the latter celebrating his centenary in 2011.

Our guests include Peter Sasdy, purveyor of such fare as Countess Dracula, Hands of the Ripper and Nothing but the Night, and Jonathan Miller, the man behind Whistle and I'll Come to You, still regarded as the best televisual rendition of any M.R. James tale.

And with the deaths of Ingrid Pitt and Roy Ward Baker we bid farewell to two old f(r)iends. It's fitting that we honour their memories with screenings of their films. For lovely Ingrid, it's a double dose of Hammer horrors. Similarly from Roy’s canon we present The Legend of the 7 Golden Vampires and The Vampire Lovers.

Seen them before? Then watch them again where they should be seen: on the movie screen. In the dark. With friends. Or strangers.

Feel the fear..."

Pretty cool line up of films. I might try and time a trip back to the UK with this and catch Let's Scare Jessica To Death. I've a real soft spot for the film and would love to see it on the big screen.

It's worth noting which screens the films are playing in as that's often a tell tale sign of what the source for the print is.

If you check the 'What's On' section of the website you'll see the film listings have a venue letter next to them.

PV = Pictureville - Usually just 35mm or 70mm but have been known to show video.
C = Cubby Broccoli - 35mm & Video projection.
TVH = TV Heaven

Ths link shows you what each 'venue/screen' looks like...

http://www.nationalmediamuseum.org.uk/AboutUs/VenueHire.aspx

TV Heaven is basically booths with a telly in them.

I'll be making enquiries about prints before I book this year as last time I booked for MANCHESTER MORGUE only to find out it was being shown from DVD after I'd paid. Tickets are non-refundable!

The Pictureville is a superb venue, if THE BEAST MUST DIE and COUNTESS DRACULA are both 35mm prints I think I'll defo be going on the Sunday.

EDIT: Just checked the brochure and they are indeed 35mm! I'll amend the first post to show source materials.

I think the Sunday plan will be Jessica, beast must die, countess dracula and decide on the day for the rest.

I went for these but it's not set in stone, they ask everyone who buys a pass to let them know what you want to watch so they can make sure there's a seat for you if it sells out.

11:00    Let's Scare Jessica To Death
13:15    C.H.U.D.
16:00    The Beast Must Die
18:15    Countess Dracula
20:00    Nothing But The Night


Did you know you can go into your Tapatalk settings a remove that signature?

C.H.U.D? Really?

Yeah, I know I can remove it but I haven't been bothered yet.

It's either that or THE STUFF or wander around for a few hours... Like I said it's not set in stone.

I was thinking of food and a couple of pints to be honest.

 I spent 2 years working in a secure mental health facility Rich, I'm prepared for anything  :-*

 We could put our names down for C.H.U.D doesn't mean we have to watch it, its early enough for me to have a couple n still drive home later. plus u don't get fat like me without being a food fan
