There’s Been An Awakening…

….have you felt it?

It’s about that time that we shake off the humdrum day jobs and look towards the Sitges Festival (and now the stars) for some inspiration. The first news has emerged from the festival and it means that this year’s theme is Star Trek, and whilst we’re more in the ‘Wars’ camp than the ‘Trek’ camp, we still think it’s pretty cool.

Sitges 2015 – The Trailer

cartell_sitges_2015_2Who’s to say if it’s excitement,boredom or simply just too much time on our hands, but inspired by the announcement the other day we’ve decided to create a trailer for this year’s festival.

It contains footage from some of the films that have been announced so far (we couldn’t find trailers for all of them) and it’s completely whetted our appetite for the feast to come later in the year.

Gentlemen (and ladies) behold….

Attack On Sitges

Titan

It was great to have The Godfather of Sitges, Santiago, back at the festival last year and if there’s one thing that has a chance of enticing him once more it’s got to be the “giant-humanoids-eating-little-humans-for-no-good-reason” mayhem that is ATTACK ON TITAN. We’re not too keen on the live-action film version but the Anime TV series was amazing so we’re made up that the festival has decided to present a “redux for cinema” version of the same.

MR NOBODY was a personal Sitges favourite back in 2010 so it’s great to see director Jaco Van Dormael back this year with LE TOUT NOUVEAU TESTAMENT. And it will be interesting to see how the Goetz brothers handle the remake of MARTYRS (something originally touted back in 2010), a film that caused a ruckus in the Corridorstyle camp back at Sitges 2008.

Head over here to the festival website to see what else they’re lining up. There’s already so much to get excited about and this is just the first wave of films for the program

Just A Heads Up…..

cartell_sitges_2015_2

It’s been all quiet from us since last year’s festival, but we just wanted to give a quick heads up about a tweet from the festival that you can find HERE.

They are teasing us with news of an announcement on Thursday regarding the advanced line-up. We don’t need to tell you how excited we are about this news, and you can be rest assured that we’ll be uploading news and previews right up until the festival starts.

See you in El Cable, the meatballs are on us!

I Have A Dream……….

…..Where I’m being chased down narrow, cobbled streets by a huge floating eyeball while rotting flesh claws at me from every doorway and the incessant moan of zombies echos off the walls…………..Fortunately, we get to live the dream every October. It’s the Sitges Internation Film Festival and here’s a teaser of what’s in store:

666 Reasons Why We Love The Sitges Festival

Moritz

Though we’re often our own worst enemy in terms of distractions at the festival it’s not exactly helping our cause when Moritz and El Cable conspire (with the Devil) and come up with 666 reasons to tempt us away from the festival program. That being said we may be trying a little too hard to stay off the Sitges sauce by going with DRUG WAR as our first film. Johnnie To IS a legend of that we’re in no doubt, we’re just not sure about him kicking off our festival.

Time, tickets and tapas allowing, here are the 666 24 films we’ve lined up for this year:

DRUG WAR

MINDSCAPE

THE WORLD’S END

PROXY
