Rather than doing a long write up (see my November Starburst column for that) here’s a selection of photos from the Saturday at the Manchester Festival of Fantastic Films. One of my all time favourite stars, Robin Askwith was there, and in good spirits. It was the second time I’ve met him, and he we had a quick chat about the play Dead Funny, which he was in when I met him last. Lovely bloke.
|Robin himself thinks this looks a little effeminate!|
Also there was Bobby Rhodes, star of Demons 1 & 2, and the Antonio Margheritti classic The Last Hunter who was entertaining.
Rockabilly/wrestling/horror guru Johnny Legend was also in attendance, and was fun and very interesting with stories of Ed Wood, Tor Johnson and Andy Kaufman.
Roll on next year……..
