The show was damn crowded, largely with school kids too young to really appreciate anything. Some of the entries were a bit more interesting than usual, though. My faves were. Under the Cloutie Tree,Rebekkah, Sauvageonne, the Convalescent, and Happy Melancholy, in no particular order. The winners, of course, I didn't reckon much, apart from technically.
This week's PENNY DREADFUL was a crazy corker. It keeps getting more and more demented.[Spoiler (click to open)]I really liked Billie Piper's raging, rampant Bride terrorising the poor Creature,Quite a bravura performance. So many good actors in this mad series. Love it.
Also half-watched Dario Argento's DRACULA 3D. It was the first time I've seen a blond Count, the rather dishy Thomas Kretschmann, who did a good job. Rutger Hauer also popped up, as a weary Van Helsing. The script was poor, though, and most of the acting wooden. It might have been more fun in the intended 3D. There were a few engagingly odd moments, too, including transmogrifications into an owl and a giant praying mantis, etc.
Finished watching the excellently clever and creepy FORTITUDE. Not sure if it can sustain a second series, but I'll certainly be checking it out.
