The Violence Of The Lambs

Jonathan King's Black Sheep

Get the mint sauce ready, Black Sheep is headed for the UK! Jonathan King's NZ mad sheep shocker has been confirmed as the opening night film for this year's FrightFest event at London's Odeon West End on Thursday 23rd August. Other films confirmed this week include Adam Mason's latest The Devil's Chair (starring Matt Berry!) and the previously announced Russian actioner The Sword Bearer and Adam Green's Portland-set thriller Spiral. The full line up should be announced by the end of June just before the weekend passes go on sale. Full details are on the festival website here.

In other FrightFest news, Jim Solan's wonderful short film Pissboy (which screened at the festival a few years back) is now up on the director's MySpace page. The tale of an incontinent loan shark, in my opinion it's the best short film that the festival have shown in their 8 year history... you can wallow in all 13 minutes of its urine-soaked glory here.

And finally, in a tenuous link to The Silence Of The Lambs, check out this music video for Lotion from Greenskeepers which cleverly uses footage from the film...

"It rubs the lotion on its skin or else it gets the hose again"
