Director Joel M. Reed and myself introducing the screening of Reed's notorious Bloodsucking Freaks (1976) at the Backlot Studios on Saturday night (Reed's intro was pre-taped in New York). Was great fun with a terrific crowd and my introductory talk seemed to go down really well. I even made up some 'Bloodsucking Freaks Beginner's Kits' to hand out to the crowd, in honour of the original promos handed out when the movie was first released on VHS in Australia, on the famous Palace Explosive label. Watch for a transcript of my intro to be posted soon. Thanks to all those who braved the cold to come out!
