    My image of such a market closely resemble the scene from Star Wars where the Jawas are trying to hawk dodgy droids off to Uncle Ben - only the dodgy droids are dodgy Asian horror movies, and Uncle Ben is instead a fat cat Hollywood studio head.

    I'm not sure if this is a reflection on the movie industry itself, or the fact that I've probably watched Star Wars one too many times.

    You're wearing a t-shirt for goodness sake! Whatever happened to your one set of clothing?

    We don't care how hot it is! Give us back the Kermode we know, love and recognise.

    Ha Ha I think my mate has watched Flight of the Living Dead and loved it. I'm not sure which is more sinister though, the red carpet main event or the underbelly. I know where I'd rather be. I hope to hear a review of Bane on friday's show.

    The white T-shirt is a vintage Kermode look, he's just bringing back the classics.

    Amazing. I truly love the micro budget sections of all film markets. I checked out "FLIGHT OF LIVING DEAD" a few weeks ago. It's F'ing great! Where have all the Italian horror films gone? :(

  • Comment number 5.

    Have to concur with the two posters above. 'Flight of the Living Dead' is wonderful 'post-pub' viewing, and not anywhere near as bad as the horrible plane/snake combo from a few years back whose title escapes me....

  • Comment number 6.

    Yeah. I saw Flight of the Living Dead last year (when it was just about still under the title Plane Dead) and it's not bad for what it is. Better than Snakes on a Plane.

    Hang on Mark. I saw you on the train getting on at Southampton Airport Parkway later on Tuesday. Did you come back to the UK and then go back to Nice the next day????

    I'd very much like to have a Pimms with Mr. Hell. He seems like a Pimms kind of man.
