Severance charity screening - buy your tickets now, or Jill gets it!



Tickets are still available for the special FrightFest charity screening of Severance at the Odeon West End on 24th August - a very reasonable £10 from the Odeon website or the Odeon booking line on 0871 22 44 007, and proceeds go to the Teenage Cancer Trust, a very worthy cause. There'll be a Q&A session afterwards with the director, cast, and me, and it should be a rollicking good time.

I wouldn't normally pimp the screening twice, but it's for charity, and I want to make sure they get as much cash as possible, which means filling every seat. If you're in London that day, and were planning to watch the movie anyway, come to this showing. If you have any mates who might be up for some gory fun, send them along. If you don't like horror, or comedy, or cinemas, come anyway, and keep your eyes shut for 96 minutes. You'll be helping some people out, and you'll be sitting with the best audience in the world - the FrightFest audience.

So come along, watch a kickass horror comedy, have a laugh, and enjoy an entertaining Q&A where the director and cast answer questions while the writer sits in a terrified silence, staring at the audience like a frightened rabbit, wetting his pants and weeping.

dude, you could have waited another day or two before you nagged people again, there'll be no decent tickets left by the time all the stragglers have committed to joining our merry troupe.

are you going to be there? should we bring flowers to throw at you? nice roses with prickly thorns, maybe?

seriously for a moment, i'm really looking forward to it. congrats, man, on making it so far. hugs x

Course I'll be there! Wouldn't miss it for the world. In the absence of an actual proper premiere, this is the closest we'll actually get. I'm excited, the actors are all excited and bringing their friends and family, Chris is excited (but then he always is because he's perpetually 15 cups of coffee ahead of everyone), everyone's excited. Don't panic though, it's a scarily huuuuge screen, so there's plenty of room for everyone!

Will Laura Harris be there?

Are you going to wear your 'contains strong bloody violence and horror' t-shirt?

James Moran said...

Joe: Laura Harris can't make it, she's doing stuff in America, as is Toby Stephens. But Danny, Tim, Andy, Babou, and Claudie will all be there, and very lovely and charming they are too.

Phil: Deciding what t-shirt to wear is the big decision I'm currently struggling with. Don't want to be too obvious, so might go for something else... It's a minefield, this t-shirt business.

I've told John about it, as he is one of those unfortunate people who don't have t'internet; and he's going to come along to the charideee screening.

Come to think of it, it's not very often that you get to watch a horror flick and help charity at the same time. Well, it's good to know that this site is campaigning for the charity and the movie. Good luck.

Just watched the trailer for 'Severance' online. Looks like a great night out - horror films aren't normally my bag but will make an exception for smart or funny ones! Looking forward to Thursday and huge congrats for making it to the big screen.

Cheers everyone - and thanks Anon, that's a fantastic interview. On being tortured by Jack Bauer in 24: "...every time he was this close to my face I was like 'Oh my god you are the most fucking gorgeous creature I have ever seen'. His voice is like melted butter and it's just like soaking all over your face." - saucy cow!

Visiting my Mum at the mo. "Are there any films out at the moment that you fancy seeing?" she asks. "Funny you should say that," I reply. Ten mins later, have booked two tickets for the charity screening. Looking forward to it!

James Moran said...

Nice! Plus you get to drag your mum along to a sweary gorefest. My mum'll be going next week, I don't quite know if she'll enjoy it or not...
