Last night I was lucky enough to be invited to the launch night of the release of V/H/S, a bold new horror film. The film was well promoted and night was hosted in a basement in Shoreditch as a mock up of an 80s/90s video rental store. It was like fresh nostalgia. My friend Sam, who is the editor of Screen Geek, the site I’ve been doing some freelance work for, said it seemed especially poignant giving yesterday’s bad time news about HMV and Blockbuster.
The reason I have tagged this as an Enjoy my life post is it made me realise how truly lucky I am to be under Sam’s wing and brought along to these events. There was a free bar, I got to chat to guys who write for Radio Times and Radio 5, and everyone was full of the joy of films.
I’ve previously accused critics of being too critical but last night was an absolute joy to be a part of. I’m very lucky.
