We have received the following request for help:
Greetings. I’m involved in a relatively young British horror festival that runs each Halloween called Abertoir (www.abertoir.co.uk) and we’re trying to locate a 35mm print of Night Of The Comet to show at next year’s festival, but to make this happen we need your help!
The Abertoir festival shows a mix of old and new horror films. Last year we showed quality 35mm prints of John Carpenter’s The Thing, the 1973 version of The Wicker Man and James Whale’s Frankenstein. This year we’re showing Poltergeist and The Cabinet Of Dr. Caligari amongst other classics. Also there will be a whole heap of new films too like the new Troma epic Poultrygeist: Night Of The Chicken Dead and the rapidly-acclaim gathering revisionist slasher flick All The Boys Love Mandy Lane.
Night Of The Comet isn’t as well known in the UK as it deserves to be and to my knowledge the film isn’t a festival regular. This is a chance to change that! If anyone has a 35mm print or knows someone who’d be willing to let us show a copy at the festival, would they please contact Andy at firstname.lastname@example.org. Any help would be most graciously appreciated. Give British horror fans the chance to see this cult classic where it belongs – on the big screen!!!
