looking back

This should have been posted a long time ago. It's our representation of Ruth Ellis killing her husband outside the very pub she did it. If you remember, the bullet holes are still there. This was done on the anniversary, but I don't know why I haven't put it up yet?

John Landis is the Man- dis!

Midnight movies
? are you mad? That means a night bus home! That seems far more frightening than some giant American werewolf prowling the town... However when I was told that John Landis, director of Trading Places and Blues Brothers would be there, I had to go. I mean had to.

And it was a pretty successful event, Mr Landis shook hands posed and signed with a rather tired looking smile, then he gave a cool question and answer thing with Empires Kim Newman. He mentioned that he had sold the rights to Dimension for a remake of AMWiL, that he was pretty pissed off when he heard that the howling was being made, and that we should go and watch the new version of AMWiL because it had all been made up for blue ray, and that it looked amazing. The makeup for the wolf looked even better in HD. He then seemed to remember where he was and said that he hoped this was a good print. It wasn't. The whole thing had a yellow tinge to it, but it was the first time I had seen it on the big screen, and its even better than the first time!

Oh- and with free cocktails!
