Tonight at the London Film Festival I met John Landis. He was sat behind me at a screening of Catfish (2010)
I saw him leave during the Q&A so I followed him out to the lobby and said hi. I even got to tell him American Werewolf in London (1981) is my fav horror movie of all time.
He was really nice - a total motor mouth, totally rude and brutally honest. I loved it. This was a real great film geek moment for me. My photo didn't turn out too bad. You only get one shot to take a photo in these situations and more times than not you'll come out with a odd facial expression... I'm OK with this one.
Thanks to my good friend Paul who took the photo and got abruptly dragged out of the really fascinating Q&A so I could go meet a hero.
Never been so excited whilst blogging before.
