Is it an old Macbook? Mine is so old can't go past Mountain Lion. SSD was amazing upgrade.@travelfish I had to install Snow Leopard from disc first.@travelfish @daveoli I think Lion is download only - you get it from App Store and make a bootable USB stick.

One disappointment at @Film4FrightFest was fewer director intros, Q&As etc. I guess people stretched thinly with more screens. #F4FF14Best film at Friday @Film4FrightFest was Dead Snow 2 (with Housebound a close second). #F4FF14Last film at @Film4FrightFest yesterday was Wolf Cop. Less fun than title suggests, trying too hard to be a cult hit. #F4FF14Housebound at @Film4FrightFest yesterday was great - haunted house slasher with strong heroine and some well timed laughs.

@Mattmeatball I remembered watching it with you but forgot where. Mmm... Mohinga.@myshkinwannabe You're gonna love Dead Snow 2...@Mattmeatball Did you see Tucker and Dale vs Evil? Love that film.@Malathronas I'm at @Film4FrightFest today. http://t.co/gQpNf8c9Kw. Didn't know about Imelda musical. Been on @carlosceldran tour about her.Dead Snow 2 is perfect film for @Film4FrightFest. It knows when to be funny, when to be gory and when to be both. Audience loved it. #F4FF14Surprised to find I didn't hate The Green Inferno. Thoroughly unsubtle, dumb throwback to horror at its most disreputable. #F4FF14RT @domdunc: R100 was brilliant. In the vein of Love Exposure. #frightfest #f4ff14 <now I wish I'd gone to see R100I don't much like werewolf films but Late Phases was v good. Cantankerous performance by Nick Damici and some ace practical effects. #F4FF14My day at @Film4FrightFest got off to a ropey start with Shockwave Darkside. Consoling myself with eggs benedict.
