051: Summer Holiday Special

It’s holiday time! Yes, even for us. Your At The Flicks team are off to the coast while listening to the classic Cliff Richard track Summer Holiday on repeat to annoy Jeff.

Before we go, we have prepared a unique and very entertaining mid month show for you. The team aren’t on it which in itself some of you might find a blessing. Instead we have an interview and the latest from Lucy on the state of the movies.

Our interview is with Theo Hogben, an up and coming film maker who already has been involved in some impressive projects. The main focus of our discussion is Theo’s latest, which is currently on the film festival circuit, called A Most Savage Beast. Theo has very kindly provided us with a special offer just for At The Flicks listeners. If you are interested in seeing this quality short, then send us your details and we will pass them onto Theo. He will try and make a screener available to you. Thank you Theo for your generosity.

Also on the show, Lucy returns and talks to Jeff about her favourite Stephen King films. Some great choices and much to Graham and Neil’s relief, not all horror films. Do you agree with the films selected under the banner of the greatest Stephen King films? Let us know, we would love to hear from you.

OK, the car’s packed and time to travel. If you hear a car pass with Summer Holiday on repeat and the sounds of not another bloody comic book movie, you know we are coming your way!

Enjoy the rest of the Summer and we will be back later in the month.
