As you may or may not know, All Night Horror Madness is an event that takes place in both Edinburgh and Glasgow where five 'classic' horror films are shown from roughly eleven pm until about nine the next morning. In between the films (many of which are original 35mm prints) are various 'lost' trailers and a raffle with some very sweet prizes. It is the brainchild of Matthew Palmer and he compères the early half of the event with the ever entertaining Ian Hoey.
I've attended two of these events so far, both times at the Cameo in Edinburgh, and each one was a fantastic experience, not least of which is the endurance factor of trying to stay awake throughout the whole night watching films. Last March's event saw such classics as The Thing, Child's Play and...Slugs (!), shown in all their glory and as the upcoming event in October is billed as both the 10th event and takes place in the Halloween month, it promises to be something extra-special.

Tickets are currently on sale for the Glasgow event (as of 2nd August), taking place at the Grosvenor cinema on Saturday the 10th of October and you can purchase them at this link: http://grosvenorsales.clients.newmanonline.org.uk/book/add?what=wxmo5n&venue_id=Gro
Tickets for the Edinburgh event - which is happening a week after the Glasgow one on Saturday the 17th October - will go on sale at some point this week and I will update this article when I have that link.
So, if you have the time off and love a good horror film or five in a great atmosphere, get yourself along to one of these days. Be warned, though - tickets do sell out pretty quick. I've already secured mine for Glasgow and there are only 100 available in total for that particular show. Best be quick, horror fans.
See you there!
