Bradford horror flick weekend coming closer

"Blimey", all the young ones among you are saying, "that's NOT that old bird from Celebrity Big Brother, is it?"
Yes, it is. And shame on you for not knowing that the lovely Ms Beacham once starred in the raunchy Mick Winner-helmed prequel to Henry James' boring wordathon The Turn Of The Screw, which was called The Nightcomers.
You can read the review here:
But that's not why I'm posting. I'm posting because The Nightcomers (the actual film is in no way as interesting as the above picture makes out, I'm sad to say) is just one film mentioned in the official launch of this year's Fantastic Films Weekend line-up. The whole shebang takes place in Bradford in June, and if you're not there, you'll probably be somewhere else.
Here's some details, more when I've got 'em...
2010 dates confirmed!
It's official! The 9th Fantastic Films Weekend will take place Friday 4 - Sunday 6 June 2010.
Early plans
FFW 2010 promises another rich and eclectic line-up of the very best of fantasy cinema and television, from the days of silent movies to the very latest digital shockers.

Early plans include double-bills of The Nightcomers and The Innocents, and 28 Days Later... and 28 Weeks Later. We are planning a tribute to Michael Reeves (1943-1969), screenings of Manhunter and The Silence of the Lambs, 70mm presentations of Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan, The Dark Crystal and Willow - and some very special guests.

Finally, back by popular demand is Pánico en el Transiberiano, otherwise known as Horror Express, a superior chiller starring Peter Cushing, Christopher Lee, Telly Savalas and a frozen fossil from beyond the stars that turns everyone into white-eyed zombies. We love it.
