Festival of Fantastic Films, Manchester 2011

Rather than doing a long write up (see my November Starburst column for that) here's a selection of photos from the Saturday at the Manchester Festival of Fantastic Films. One of my all time favourite stars, Robin Askwith was there, and in good spirits. It was the second time I've met him, and he we had a quick chat about the play Dead Funny, which he was in when I met him last. Lovely bloke.

Robin himself thinks this looks a little effeminate!

Also there was Bobby Rhodes, star of Demons 1 & 2, and the Antonio Margheritti  classic The Last Hunter who was entertaining.

Rockabilly/wrestling/horror guru Johnny Legend was also in attendance, and was fun and very interesting with stories of Ed Wood, Tor Johnson and Andy Kaufman.
Roll on next year........

  1. Thanks for letting me know about these Robin photos!! You're so lucky to be able to go to events like that and meet him! Oh how I would if I was closer! I love the photos of him with his famous happy smile. What kinds of things did he talk about onstage?

    Would you like me to mention these photos on my Robin blog and add a link to your blog?
