It’s Later Than You Think

Posted in FILM with tags on November 3, 2013 by dcairns


The Late Show — Shadowplay’s Late Films Blogathon — returns, December 1st to 7th. The subject is late and last films, whether of directors, actors or other filmmakers. The participants are YOU!

If you have a blog, simply post a related piece during the week of the Blogathon and send me the news. I’ll have created some banners you can use. Link back to Shadowplay and I’ll link to you. If you have no blog, get in touch anyway because I could always publish your piece here myself.

We aim to celebrate the final, often neglected films from major careers, but we’ll also look at the disasters and dog’s dinners, or the last gasps of obscure cult weirdies. It’s open house!

You can revisit old posts by clicking on The Late Show tag to the right of the Shadowplay main page. I don’t mind if you write about something that’s already been covered. It’s Liberty Hall!

Peepshow Sheepshow

CREEPSHOW! My review of the new, rather sumptuous Blu-ray is over at Electric Sheep — such dazzling presentation turned a movie I’d always considered, as Popeye would say, mediocum, into quite an enjoyable experience.
