Given that Ghostbusters is being shown on Fiver and I'm sitting through it in growing horror. I loved this film once. Am I being overly cynical?
Who you gonna call?

[he] is probably best known in this country for his role as the proprietor of Fantasy IslandWhich, quite frankly, is probably wrong. So I decided to solve the discussion by science. Well, an LJ poll:
Hot off the press (or whatever the equivalent is on the interweb) here's the full FFW 2008 programme, almost all confirmed...I've bolded the stuff I'd like to see, but nothing specifc yet—some of the stuff I haven't highlighted (like Phibes) is cool but I've watched it recently as Jennie's got the DVD. It's in Bradford, 20 minutes by bus from us here in Brighouse, anyone wanting advice for accommodation give us a shout, sofa space may still be available.

Weekend Pass £40 (£35 concs)
Day Pass £20 (£15 concs)
Grindhouse/Dr. Phibes double-bills £10 (£7 concs)
BTW. Passes do NOT include IMAX titles
If you've got any questions let me know. Oh, and I hope to have at least some of the John Carpenter's exclusive intro to The Thing on YouTube for you all in the next week or so, as a nice little teaser.
Your friends at FFW HQ
This year the line-up includes the Tarantino/Rodriguez Grindhouse double-bill, the ultimate Cushing/Lee pairing in Dracula, Daughters of Darkness, Eyes without a Face, Blood on Satan’s Claw and John Carpenter’s The Thing in 70mm with an exclusive video introduction from Carpenter himself. Our guests will be cult filmmakers Harry Kümel, Peter Duffell, Piers Haggard and Robert Fuest.Now, I'm not a massive horror film fan (because most horror films don't involve space ships), but I can appreciate a good flick, and the normal selection they've had has been brilliant, last year included Soylent Green, 300 on the IMAX, a showing of Ghostwatch and Forbidden Planet. So that's some proper SF, some decent horror, some weird FX driven stuff and SPARTA!
