MovieBar November 2012 - Halloween Special - Postscript...

So this month’s Moviebar didn’t go exactly to plan. With the DVD player out of action we had to turn to playing the films off a laptop. Now this would have been fine had we had prior notice, so certain files were rather large for smooth playback and had to be streamed online.

So not the best circumstances, but we managed to get through the night. A special mention goes out to the patient MovieBar audience that forgave us for the slightly odd structure and occasionally jerky playback.
Anyway, this is how it went down:-

The Raglob by Tim Grabham

Mark’s final film project from Croyden College tells the classic story of boy kidnaps girl to cut up for fun. Unfortunately this is not available online at this time.

Lovebug by Ben Kent

Creepy MR James esque short about a hole in the ground.
 
SeeSaw by James Cookson

See/Saw from James Cookson on Vimeo.
A street thug who kills a woman for her purse gets more than he bargained for. Kind of a modern day Mezzotint - another MR James reference.

 The Furred Man by Paul Williams

A bruised and battered Max sits in an interrogation room dressed in a ghoulish costume caked in dried blood. With his alibi littered with two corpses, blood-curdling screams, and a tale of "the beast", this furry man swears he can explain...

Great short idea that that is overall both funny and creepy.



We had also planned on showing Captive by Gus alvarez but we only had this on DVD. Captive will now be shown next month.


Hopefully we’ll be more prepared for everything next month for our Christmas Special and the last MovieBar of 2012. It would be great for as many of you as possible to make it on 3rd December 2012.
