It's that time of year again when hundreds of horror geeks plus half dozen sweaty, high waisted folk who live at home with their disabled mums (who will never die!) descend on my fair city ready to soak the streets (and seats) with the unmistakable smell of sweat, shame, semen and tears.
Which can only mean that our lovely pals at Frightfest have announced the line-up for sunny Glasgow.
And it looks a good un!
So without further ado, here's the list:
THE ATTICUS INSTITUTE
|"Shite in mah mooth!" - Sorry couldn't resist.|
|88: Two fat ladies not shown.|
From the team behind DEAD BEFORE DAWN 3D, and starring friend of The Arena Katharine Isabelle, comes a glorious, gory and fast-paced homage to cult exploitation revenge thrillers.
|Holly Valance, up the casino, Wigan, 1998.....YESCH.|
From Marcus Nispel, 'director' of THE TEXAS CHAINSAW and FRIDAY THE 13TH re-imaginings (but let's not hold that against him) comes a curious case of sex, drugs and rock ‘n’ roll possession.
|"Those badges on your jacket smell....they must be onion bhajis!" - Seriuosly a clown I was working with once made this joke.|
Director: Mario Bava. Screenwriters: Mario Bava, Giuseppe Barilla, Marcello Fondato. Cast: Cameron Mitchell, Eva Bartok, Lea Lander, 88 mins, Italy 1964.
|A Bava classic....blood or black lace not soon.|
Mario Bava’s visually stunning, elegantly mounted and erotically charged proto- giallo presented in all its restored glory.
|"I can see you house from here Peter".|
|Manuela Velasco: I love her AND she follows me on Twitter....my life is complete.|
