It’s All Happening

Well, here we are. I had hoped that by the time mid-October rolled around, our Project Fear mini-quasi-blogathon would be a sort of relic, the October 31st Brexit deadline having been abandoned as unworkable, rendering the festivities at Shadowplay a mere nostalgic reverberation from a canceled timeline, but that has not yet happened.

With everything to play for, we shuffle forth.

(The phrase “project fear,” by the way, is one beloved of the Tory right, who have used it to dismiss all well-founded warnings about the negative effects of Brexit as being part of a disinformation campaign to put the shits up the Great British Public. What with Boris (Johnson, not Karloff) focussing all his shambling zombie energies on Halloween as death day for EU membership, I thought somebody ought to do something with the words Project Fear. So I’m celebrating European horror movies, especially those with a tiny British component.)

Festivities start on the 27th.

Well, there they were, a whole bunch of John Wayne movie trailers, so what was I to do? What would any red-blooded male do?

A Rampage of Destruction

I wish Video Editor let me do more with sound. But the enthusiastically redundant VO from the trailer of PAGAN ISLAND is certainly adding a lot here. Stupidity with confidence, as Steve Martin would say.
