An event of the Cheltenham Screenwriters' Festival's magnitude is quite the meeting of minds. Inevitably, somewhere during those three days, incredible concepts will be born. So it was, then, that the notion of The Exorcist: The Fifth was forged in hell's fire. Combine Moran, Turner, Perry, Thomson, Beckley and others, with several pints of booze, and that's simply the kind of genius you get. I laughed so hard, I almost keeled over and died.
But I couldn't leave it there, oh no. Because when I woke up the next morning it was still funny. So I forced Stuart Perry, at ballpoint, to perform two trailers for the film.
The first trailer, here, was delivered during Perry's "I've lost my voice" period, which added to the general sense of claustrophobic fear and unease, I think you'll agree:
The second trailer, here, was recorded on the last night of the festival, in the infamous Room Of Doom, 109. It is utterly terrifying.
There is also now a poster for this truly diabolical sequel. Drink it up, horror lovers...
Lastly, there has been talk of how much fun the SWF was, but no tell of the dangers lurking within its walls. Look at this with your mind:
Normal SWF coverage will be resumed asap. Apologies.
