Hi all,I was wondering if anyone else here is joining in with the online 2020 FrightFest over the next few days?

If things go to plan,I'll be joining in today for the screening of I Am Lisa.

Note:They say that streamings are locked to UK only,not sure if some VPN's could bypass the lock.

The line-up:

Would imagine Chris Reynolds will be following this for sure. Any recommendations morrison? For someone like me who isn't a big horror fan...

I don't get the film industry. You have a worldwide audience, but then you region lock everyone out of watching your films.
Then the next day these films are all over the internet.

And the weird thing is these are one-off screenings of indie films, surely keeping them unlocked would bring in more cash for the festival,and a wider audience for the film makers. But then, region locking Blu's is still going.

Hi Adam,hope you are having a good weekend. Three interesting-sounding movies from the fest:

SKULL: THE MASK

A Brazilian Splatter Horror:

A GHOST WAITS

"A Ghost Waits is a mixture between Tim Burton's Beetlejuice and Peter Jackson's The Frighteners. "

https://letterboxd.com/jaklukesharp/film/a-ghost-waits/

THE SWERVE (final film of the fest.)

" a shimmering American take on Michael Haneke-style torment, a woman battles depression, rodents, guilt and more in a superbly acted slow burner certain to leave a haunting impression. "

It's dumb, but it all revolves around different companies owning the rights to distribution in different regions. I do see companies who have worldwide distribution rights usually make their discs region free. but like everything else, it all boils down to money. :yucky:
