This year’s Fantastic Fest in Austin is winding down with two days to go and today the award winners have been announced. Jukka-Pekka Valkeapää‘s Dogs Don’t Wear Pants took home the award for Main Competition, with Richard Stanley‘s Lovecraftian Color Out of Space winning for Horror Feature.

When I shared this news feature on my FB, Richard himself commented it with:

The night of just the one vampire???

https://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/p07rxmkk/dracula-first-look-trailer

Given the pedigree of the writing and production team (the Dr Who revamp, Sherlock, The League of Gentlemen, etc., etc., etc.) I have high hopes for this series. It's got to be better than the last version the BBC did in 2006 with Marc Warren. That (awful!) script wasted some fine talent!

Mind you, I think that the 1977 BBC version (the Louis Jourdan one) was the best, and certainly the most faithful to the original novella, version ever.

Tonight is Halloween.

I'm going to watch 'Halloween'.

Also got some nostalgic and scary kid's series from the 70's like 'The Changes' and 'Children Of The Stones'.

I watched "Children of the Stones" again a year or two ago.

Wasted on kids - it's great!

I think I will go and watch this in cinema:

The pair – the film industry’s equivalent of Mick Jagger and Keith Richards – are bona fide living legends, the greatest US actors of their generation, able to wipe the floor with modern lightweights such as Leonardo DiCaprio, Brad Pitt and Daniel Day-Lewis. Or that is what we would like to believe, anyway. Today, they have rolled into London as the main attraction on the press roadshow for The Irishman, Martin Scorsese’s monumental new gangster picture – and there is a lot to get through. “Wow,” says Pacino at one point, casting his mind back across the pair’s career-long relationship. “We’ve known each other for a really long time.”

Horror film quiz:

I got 10/12, but I'm sure that other TUTS can do better.

So, you might ask, what’s my problem? Why not just let superhero films and other franchise films be? The reason is simple. In many places around this country and around the world, franchise films are now your primary choice if you want to see something on the big screen. It’s a perilous time in film exhibition, and there are fewer independent theaters than ever. The equation has flipped and streaming has become the primary delivery system. Still, I don’t know a single filmmaker who doesn’t want to design films for the big screen, to be projected before audiences in theaters.

That includes me, and I’m speaking as someone who just completed a picture for Netflix. It, and it alone, allowed us to make “The Irishman” the way we needed to, and for that I’ll always be thankful. We have a theatrical window, which is great. Would I like the picture to play on more big screens for longer periods of time? Of course I would. But no matter whom you make your movie with, the fact is that the screens in most multiplexes are crowded with franchise pictures.

And if you’re going to tell me that it’s simply a matter of supply and demand and giving the people what they want, I’m going to disagree. It’s a chicken-and-egg issue. If people are given only one kind of thing and endlessly sold only one kind of thing, of course they’re going to want more of that one kind of thing.
...

The situation, sadly, is that we now have two separate fields: There’s worldwide audiovisual entertainment, and there’s cinema. They still overlap from time to time, but that’s becoming increasingly rare. And I fear that the financial dominance of one is being used to marginalize and even belittle the existence of the other.

I watched the intriguing 'Dublin Murders' for 8 twisty, turny episodes.

But it ended without solving two main things it was about.

Yes, they solved a couple of murders but the real mysteries about the two main characters pasts was left hanging.

So I looked up the books to see how it was dealt with in those.

There's no answers in the books either.

What a waste of 8 hours.

I think from now on I'll only watch dramas after they've all aired and if I can confirm they actually have an ending.

@Rockula:
you watched the whole thing for 8 hours, but the mystery still wasn't explained, so you complained?  ;D

Horror film quiz...
I got 10/12, but I'm sure that other TUTS can do better.

Don't be so sure. Only 8/12, but then again I'm not that keen on "horror" films.
