I’m in Brighton again this weekend. I’m doing very little with the Easter break, mostly catching up with things and trying to finish a draft of the book. I did take some time out to watch The Orphanage with Kitty and Rosy at the Duke Of York’s, where I managed to disgrace myself.
I like scary films but I do get a little too into them – I love the feeling of mounting terror in a decent ghost story. I bought a big tub of popcorn and sat there eating it whenever things weren’t too spooky. Which wasn’t all that often, so I had a lot of popcorn as one of the characters investigated the house. Suddenly something jumped from the shadows and I jumped too. Popcorn went everywhere, my lap, Kitty’s lap, all over the floor.
So, I can add The Orphanage to the list of films I shouldn’t have bought popcorn for (the other being John Pilger’s The War on Democracy ). It was a very good film though, and I can’t wait to watch it again on DVD.
