So, on April 8th I went to see Let The Right One In at The Apollo in London, yes…the theatre where the roof fell in. Was I frightened that it would fall down again? Nah, I’m invincible
I’m not used to going to the Theatre but a lot more effort had been put into the set, the lighting and performance than I expected, which was a pleasant surprise. When it was announced to me I was going to see Let The Right One In, i did try to read the book before seeing the production, but at my reading pace that was never going to happen.
The production was atmospheric and certainly succeeded in creating the atmosphere necessary for suspense and fear. If you’re into vampires then I’d recommend you go see this post haste and then follow up with the film of the same name, if you don’t like subtitles there is an American version of the film called “Let Me In” which I had seen but I don’t think I was paying attention.
WARNING: This production is not for the Twilight generation…
Right, well I will leave you to the trailer below while I go read the book.
So on Saturday I went to The London Dungeon, I was quite shocked to find out that they’d moved to the South Bank, a tourist destination gone wild. Sorry, I couldn’t film anything for you, but it’s so damn dark down there.
I haven’t been to the Dungeons since I was wee boy and honestly, I was pleasantly surprised to find out that it’s even better than I remembered it. The actors are great and the ambience is exactly what you’d expect in the dark depths of the London Dungeons. I’m pretty keen on the darker side of history, and that’s exactly what the Dungeons portray. Think Horrible Histories meets Saw.
It’s very different than the old Tooley Street dungeon, but it certainly doesn’t disappoint. With water ride reminiscent of any water ride at amusement parks, only difference is it’s dark and smells a little like sewage. I just wish this water ride could have been longer and wetter. There’s currently a London Dungeon 2 for 1 deal going on, on packs of Kellogg’s cereal, so you have no excuses to have a bit of spooky fun this easter. Take the kids or why not go to London Dungeon Lates for a spooky night out. Whatever you do, don’t get fish and chips from next door. It is by far, the worst fish and chips Mister Jack has ever tasted, blurgh.
Yo yo yo Jacksters, it's my birthday today and guess what? I received some presents. Amongst the usual gifts of socks, socks and more socks, a little lady gave me The Complete Collection of Goodnight Sweetheart.
For those of you who are either too young or too cool to know what Goodnight Sweetheart is or, more correctly, was, it’s an underrated 90s comedy starring Nicholas Lyndhurst of Only Fools and Horses Fame.
Like a nerdy and pathetic Dr Who, Gary Sparrow travels in between time and women getting into all kinds of trouble as one would expect of a time travelling bigamist who masquerades as a wartime secret agent.
