August 26th, 2018.
Last year, I attempted one "premiere" at London's Frightfest, and left in disgust wondering how they called what they did for "The Cult of Chucky" a World Premiere (which I'd now like to apologise for...) But since then, the likes of Disney/Marvel and any number of other studios have completely warped and subverted the definition of words like "Premiere", "Gala", "Screening", "Q & A" and "launch" and so I found myself back for a second attempt at cracking the nut that is FrightFest.
And this time I had a plan. Here's how it went down.
And then I watched the movie...
and I can not articulate how surprising it was. I don't actually want to spoil it, except to say that if you look at the title, and the fact that it's premiering at London Frightfest, and pretty much think you know exactly what the movie is (a) about (b) going to be like.... you will be surprised! I absolutely and without hesitation endorse it, and told the director how much I loved it after the screening. I even gave it its own mini-quote for "Quotes for the Poster"
Go and see this movie and pretend you're watching it with a couple hundred fans of gore and horror. It'll make it even better.
Until next time! (which is... erm... the next two journals, as I was able to take more photos of another premiere before my 1:30pm session, and I came back at 5:00pm for another premiere). Feel free to follow me for more (or typically less) madness when I post one of these journals, on facebook at premieresdotco, or on twitter at berndt2_photo.
