What a Carry On at Darkfest 2!

If you are a fan of horror or comedy or comedy horrors then you might like this. The Darkfest film festival is returning for a second year this November at the Genesis Cinema in London. As well as screening a range of classic films, there will also be an opportunity to meet several iconic film stars too.

The organisers are promising a line up of screenings including Dracula (1965); Horror Hospital (1973), Witchfinder General (1968) plus a certain comedy classic from 1966 called Carry On Screaming! I understand it was planned that the star of Screaming, the wonderful, much missed Fenella Fielding would be in attendance however sadly this now won't happen. I'm glad Screaming will still be shown in tribute to the great actress.

Three friends of the blog will be in attendance on the day. The gorgeous Judy Matheson, who has always been so encouraging with all my blogging endeavours, will be there to meet  fans as will her Confessions of a Window Cleaner co-star, Mr Robin Askwith. There's a reunion not to be missed! The absolutely lovely Madeline Smith will also be at Darkfest, and as well as her comedy roles in the likes of Up Pompeii and Carry On Matron, Maddie did of course make several Hammer Horror films, perhaps chief amongst them, The Vampire Lovers. 

As well as all of this, there will be a range of film memorabilia, posters, stills and DVDs for sale. 

Darkfest 2 will be held on Saturday 24 November, from 12 noon at the Genesis Cinema, 93-95 Mile End Road, London E1 4UJ.
