SPECIAL EVENT - Halloween (2016 viewing)


Watching films with friends...


Year 6.  One location again and 4 - 6 viewers.  The sixth films in each series, of course: Friday the 13th Part VI: Jason Lives (1986); Halloween: The Curse of Michael Meyers (1996); Freddy's Dead: The Final Nightmare (1991).  It was decided after Jason Lives that The Final Nightmare would be the better the Halloween film and was placed to improve the ending.

SPECIAL EVENT - Ozploitation (2016)

Looking at films with friends...

After the success - or whatever - of the 2015 films (Alvin Purple, Road Games & Dead End Drive-In) we again did 3 Ozploitation films for Australia Day (synced up on the 24th this year - rather than the 26th - and once again in two different cities.  The films were picked from those in Not Quite Hollywood, which was divided into three parts (Sex comedies, Horror films and Action films) and so three films.
