If you are in the Los Angeles at a loose end early on Halloween night, why not join me at the New Beverly Cinema for a double bill of SHAUN OF THE DEAD and my choice of Halloween film - RIKI OH: THE STORY OF RIKI.



The New Beverly have not only kindly chosen my film as the main feature, but let me pick the second feature.

I will also be showing the uncut version of my GRINDHOUSE trailer "DON'T" for the first time in the US.

As well as a whole mess of handpicked vintage trailers.

Should be a hoot.

SHAUN OF THE DEAD & DON'T are at 7.30

and the amazing

RIKI OH : THE STORY OF RICKY is at 9.30

The choice of second film was somewhat agonizing. But I eventually picked the film that brought the house down as the secret third feature at the close of my Wright Stuff festival last December.

So the honour goes to the 1991's startling Hong Kong epic RIKI OH: THE STORY OF RICKY.

What could be more amazing than a film that names it protagonist twice in the title?

And what could be more Halloween-y than a ridiculously gory futuristic prison romp with a hero who can play the flute and punch through peoples heads?

I swear that if you haven't seen it before - it's a crazy film and a great one to see with a crowd.

If you need further prompting; please peruse the IMDB plot keywords for RIKI OH.

I would love to be in LA this halloween,instead im stuck in sunny england MEH!!
AusChick
I would truly love to go to that.
And I think my Halloween costume would work quite well for it too.

Sadly, even if I won the lottery tomorrow I don't think I'd be physically able to fly to LA in time.
Unless I bought myself a concord.
Whatever happened to the concord anyway? Surely it's sitting around somewhere waiting to be bought by a crazy lottery winner?



Incidentally, the poster is brilliant.

It really is.

Next year can we book you for Halloween in the UK, Edgar?

Indeed, surely Old Blighty deserves a turn at showcasing some fine horror films during its own Wright Stuff-esque night. No point coming to down here to Australia, I only just learned from colleagues that it isn't really 'done' here. I always thought Halloween was the most fun of all the festivities.

I was a zombie Jim Morrison. The fake blood was buring my face. I might have a picture somewhere...
I'll have a look.

Brilliant photos Sarah, one thing though on the last photo, was that guy on your right holding a lightsaber or was he just pleased to see you?

Miss Shazam, that's inspired. i'd love to go on a zombie walk as dead Hendrix
