It’s pissing down with rain, there’s no fruit/veg section in the local Sainsburys and I just saw a tramp having a shit outside Poundstretcher – It can only mean ONE THING –
the Edinburgh International Film Festival!
I missed this year’s opening party coz I had to have another abortion but I’m ere now, and wont be using Tesco Basic condoms again.
First things first – GOODY BAGS! And I’m not talking about Jade’s colostomy variety. Mine had a notepad, some bubblegum and a Moulinex blender incrusted with Sworszi crystals personally hand-signed by Ross Kemp. Get in!
Now the serious stuff...
The Caller (UK)
Excellent psychological thriller/horror with a pretty ginger bird from ‘Twilight’.
So yeah this one is about some girl who moves into a flat and some creepy old hag keeps harassing her on the phone. Only some weird supernatural things start happening innit. The special effects were mega good and it was proper creepy like. Barbarella recommends you go see this one.
Highs: Really creepy bit near the end.
Lows: My feet were wet all the way through from the cunting rain.
Some chavs from Manchester put on a rave and it turns out good so then do it again but things turn out nasty… is basically the major plot in this new British comedy from director Karl Golden. It’s a bit like Kevin and Perry Go Large mixed with 24-Hour Party People so if that’s your packet of Wotsits you’re laughing.
A stunning performance by the lovely Tom Meeten who played the stonehead DJ Captain Acid. It made me want to rave like it was 1990. Manumission!
Highs: Jolly entertaining and fun.
Lows: there were no drugs at the after party!
