So its not sunny outside, but it certainly is scary….

27 Aug

What better way to spend a bank holiday than in a dark room, with about 200 other people – some wearing funny masks, but the majority wearing funny t-shirts – and being scared to high heaven with a selection of horror movies… Well this is not necessarily my idea of fun, but for all the horror film fans in London, The Empire Cinema played Makkah to all their goulish, spine tingling needs.

Being careful to avoid the need for a pace-maker to be fitted, I managed skip past some of the films and go straight towards meeting its directors and cast (who weren’t so scary) and have a catch up about what all this horror fuss was about… here are just a few below…

Simon Pegg tells me that he doesn’t want Nick Frost to be walking around making “ARRGGGGHHH” noises for an entire film, so sadly, Shaun of the Dead 2, ain’t happening folks!

Labyrinth (book) fans, Claudia Gerini tells us all about the villain she plays in the TV movie out soon!

Ever wondered whatever happened to the Super Mario Bros? Well…I think they changed direction from plumbers to horror film makers under the name the Manetti Brothers…I’m not convinced!

And finally, Paura 3D’s Francesca Cuttica tells you how to prepare for a part as a woman living in a basement for years…as you do!

Thanks for reading folks! x

Supporting new talent at the Ill Manors Premiere

31 May


So on a gorgeous sunny day in London (despite the odd cloud and patch of rain!) Britains best and brightest new talents head straight to London’s newly refurbed Leicester Square to support one of our biggest talents in music and now film. Ben Drew A.K.A Plan B, brought his labour of love for the last three years to the masses with a hard hitting complex story of East End London, in Ill Manors.

Utilizing the talents of well known and respected new British talent such as Riz Ahmed, Drew and his team also opened the door unknown, raw and talented actors with only a couple of credits to their name. This is a refreshing site to see and is one of the reasons more well known stars of the silver screen and the music world came to support him. Here’s a few of them that I managed to catch up with… enjoy!
