Fantastic News

Here's notification of a superb event in Bradford on the 10th, 11th and 12th of June, the 10th Annual Fantastic Films Weekend.

Basically three days of the sort of TV and Cinema that drives this weblog and, I hope, your desire to look at it, it offers many, many pleasures, including the opportunity to watch such Hammer classics as 'Plague Of The Zombies', 'Legend Of The Seven Golden Vampires', 'Hands Of The Ripper', 'Countess Dracula' and The Karnstein Trilogy on the big screen, as well as the chance to ask Peter Sasdy (who directed 'Hands' and 'Countess', plus episodes of the Hammer House Of Horror on TV, plus 'The Stone Tape', ffs) a few questions, like 'you're a genius, how does that feel?' and 'what's Oliver Tobias really like?'.

TV wise, as well as the aforementioned 'Stone Tape', there's also a screening of the 1954 Nigel Kneale scripted BBC adaptation of '1984', a truly seminal piece of broadcasting history, as well as Jonathan Miller's semi-psychedelic 'Alice In Wonderland' and some interesting looking documentaries.

Programme is available via this link, I'll see you there.

  1. Just clicked on the link this sounds amazing. Interview with Jonathan Miller and a screening of his version of Alice in Wonderland, Nigel Kneale's 1984. But prob no chance of me getting to Bradford at all on any of those 3 days. I do have a copy of the Stone Tape so I will have to make do with watching that instead. Gutted again. (twice in one day)
