The Horror Show, a Video On Demand service that launched last week, invited Best For Film down for a launch event at the exceedingly agreeable surroundings of the Prince Charles Cinema in London. Offering a comprehensive service tailored towards us weirdos who enjoy seeing socialites being sewn together arse-to-face, The Horror Show decided to celebrate its birth with a screening of the short horror film Him Indoors, followed by the 1987 Donald Cammell serial killer film White Of The Eye, which was selected and introduced by the author and film critic Kim Newman. Let’s take a look at the goods…
With the building anticipation of Django Unchained, Best For Film was invited down to the unparallelled Prince Charles Cinema just off Leicester Square in London to enjoy every single Quentin Tarantino directed film back-to-back. Although the prospect of a 15 hour cinema session might seem as bad as what Zed does to Ving Rhames, it’s all in a day’s work for us here at the Best For Film World Headquarters. Here’s to our next 15 hour marathon at the PCC!
Because we don’t like you to try new things without our express permission, we took it upon ourselves to give the Pyjama Party: Dance Edition at the cushy Prince Charles Cinema a whirl – six films, ten hours, millions of jazz hands. With booze. And a onesie. Under the dictionary definition of “a good time”, you will find a picture of us attempting the Dirty Dancing lift, at 6am, blind drunk.
Whether you’re London, Belfast or Edinburgh-based, this week belongs to Poland. And as for the rest of you, you’re probably better off dead. Unless you’re actually from Poland, in which case we’ll let you off. Polish Film Festival! Hurrah for Monday!
November rain getting you down? Does the prospect of another bleak, friendless Christmas make you reach for the whiskey and the revolver? Not to worry, there’s a whole plethora of festivals and events to take your mind of your hollow shell of a life!
What do you mean, you haven’t meticulously planned your summer around the amazing film events which are going on all over London? You’re not right, mate. Fortunately, we definitely have organised our getting-burnt-in-the-park sessions so they work around the special screenings we just can’t miss – and if you’re nice, you can peek in our diary.
Here at Best For Film, we want you to be prepared. Halloween comes but once a year, creeping up on you whilst you are distracted by the changing weather and the slow realisation that it’s not acceptable to wander around in your bikini because SUMMER IS OVER. And we would hate for you to miss out on super cool Halloween things due to a lack of preparation. So here it is, champs; a list of Halloween film events for you and me and all to share.
Independent cinemas are bloody brilliant. Nobody’s wearing a uniform more elaborate than a black t-shirt, the bar has drinks which aren’t carbonated or soft, and if anyone tries to fumble for an Orange Wednesdays text-ticket they’re cast into the outer darkness. Cracking. This week we’ve been to another one – the unique and spectacular Prince Charles.
