I hope you all had a terrifyingly good summer! Murry and I have just returned from Bestival on the Isle of Wight and I can tell you that camping was murder. On our return I felt a distinct chill in the air, I’m sure you felt it too, it means that there is just enough time before autumn arrives for me to give you a quick run-down of what items will be exhibiting in the red museum over the new season.
You will no doubt already be aware that Sight and Sound magazine have printed their 2012 ‘Greatest Films’ poll, compiled from votes by critics and directors in their September edition. This once a decade poll and the debate surrounding it makes for fascinating, and tantalising reading. All the results can be explored and analysed here: http://explore.bfi.org.uk/sightandsoundpolls/2012/ I really recommend you delve in and take a look, the results are relatively genre light but in honour of this decades poll I will be compiling my current top ten all time favourite horrors (or 20 if I get stuck) Coming up soon you can also expect an autumn edition of Trailer Trash. Traditionally autumn is prime blood letting time for new horror releases and my post will encompass everything coming out in the build up to Halloween. I also intend to review my most recent acquisition; The Thing on Blu-ray Steelbook, and I will be starting an exciting series of reviews focusing on my Arrow Video special edition Blu-ray collection. As a grand finale I will be trick or treating (yes that pun is that bad) you to some Halloween cooking accompanied by photos. You lucky undead lot.
