The previous record for most premieres I’ve photographed in one day was THREE, and today without even meaning to I’ve seemingly managed SIX! Yes, admittedly they came to me, rather than the other way around (so to speak)… so it was a bit easier than rushing from venue to venue. And in this case it was indoors, in one location, over the course of about 6 hours… and even included a quick pub/cider break! (Well…. it was hot!).
Anyway, for the last time today, a premiere! Here’s how it went down:
So…. that was that, then. 12 premieres in 4 days plus 2 additional events (one not yet journalised due to what I’m calling “confusion”). They might have been small by the standards of The Big Premieres, but don’t let size be a substitute for value and entertainment. The more I’ve gone to Frightfest, the more I’m pleased that it exists, and that fans for it exist. I’m kind of on the outskirts, a bit, but I was really pleased I was allowed to take photos - I tried not to get in the way, and did it for fun, I even ended up watching two films, getting a signed Dario Argento autobiography, and walking away with no less then TEN soundtracks … and a DVD of a weird German black’n’white “Vampyr” movie from the 1930s.
And that’s not something I do every long weekend… but it certainly adds a lot to the Archive of Premieres.
So with the last word, it’s back to The Twisted Sisters:
