Micro-budget British horror at its best

Farting loud enough to trigger the 'Your Microphone is Muted' prompt in a packed online meeting

Many thanks to the Doctor Who specials for adding "Well, that's alright then" and "Oh, you've pulled his tummy out!" to the collection of random phrases in the jukebox of my mind.

Heading into the last week or so of social media before my annual period of shutting out the voices and spending time with my family.

I hope you're all having an amazing bit *before* the bit before Christmas.

If you take your kid to a gig knowing that the lyrics have swearing, you MUST clearly articulate a one-night swearing amnesty so your kid can scream their lungs out swearing along with the band they love. If you don't do this you're a fucking monster.

Hey horror filmmakers! I'm compiling twenty years' worth of my own experiences for my 2024 live show "Sell Your Bloody Movie"
If you've had good or bad experiences that you'd like to share in terms of getting your completed movies sold, give me a shout.

Started the Exorcist TV show last night, which had somehow got past me. Impressed so far!

I can't get my head around the way people just walk around when the moon is clearly visible in the sky and they don't just completely freak out at the whole concept

Songs that are about the process of bands breaking up, sung by the bands as they are breaking up, are very much my jam.

Over on Bluesky, I just changed my bio to a load of press quotes saying how brilliant I am.

I haven't done that here. Feels like it'd be wrong.

Have I got that right?

I was a nervous kid who avoided scary stuff because I had a vivid imagination and was convinced horror movies would be even worse. First one I saw (Alien) was an absolute liberation. Nowhere near the stuff in my head. So then I watched EVERYTHING.

Is it ok to wear a band t-shirt with tour dates if you never went to any of the dates on the shirt?

Yes

No

I just went out in total, zero light-pollution darkness to close an external gate. I lit the way with my phone. I'm normally fine with stuff like that but my brain helpfully started playing a scene from Lake Mungo and now I've given myself the wiggins

The odds of existing at all are apparently

1 in 10 followed by 2,685,000 zeroes

You are already a winner beyond your wildest dreams, so cut yourself a break if you say the wrong thing or fart in a lift sometimes. You've already won the lottery billions of times over.

Take a look at the crowdfunder for A Final Exorcism from Trash Arts - they do some really cool stuff.

I'd somehow never seen the Black Mirror episode Hang the DJ. It hit me right in the heart.

thread 2 Threaded Spouts
13 years ago today, I first found my film Hellbride out in the wild in an actual shop (HMV Lakeside). A couple of years later, HMV stores in general started stocking it deep at Halloween (which really threw me; suddenly there were loads of copies in most branches).

There was a 90s band I loved who split up before recording an album. They only released three singles. I heard that the album was recorded and shelved. I mentioned it online, and a friend of the band happened to read the post and sent me the unreleased tracks. The internet is incredible sometimes.

One of the weirdest things about being a screenwriter is that I never know when I start jotting an idea down whether it's going to fade into the ether or become the focus of my life for two years and become an actual tangible thing that will outlive me.

First spout from the app. Feeling good about this. The last few weeks have seen very little Twitter backsliding but also very little activity on my part on the 'new' platforms. Will this ever feel like home? Or an I entering a reduced social media phase?

Don't forget to be amazing, kind, empathetic and wonderful in all ways at all times. It's what we strive for.

But if you're accidentally an asshole once in a while that's probably fine too.

The peace that comes with knowing that you can disagree with someone here and not meet with a barrage of insults isn't talked about enough.
