This writer has been a huge fan of Imogen Poots ever since I saw her as Robert Carlyle's daughter in Juan Carlos Fresnadillo's 28 Weeks Later. Since that breakout performance, Poots has established herself rather quickly as an emerging talent on the rise.
She recently starred in Centurion for director Neil Marshall, is starring alongside Colin Farrell and Anton Yelchin for DreamWorks' upcoming Fright Night 3D and is now starring in another vampire-related project Hello Darkness which is currently in production.
Last year, while on a set visit for Fright Night 3D, we had the opportunity to chat with the up-and-coming actress briefly who spoke about updating her character in the film, her feelings on working with the talented cast of Fright Night and what she finds so appealing about working on genre films.
Witchfinder General will play at the Vincentennial Vincent Price Film Festival in a 35mm print at 7:00pm tonight, Thursday, May 26th at Brown Hall on the campus of Washington University. Admission is free.

With introductions and a post-film discussion of .Champagne for Caesar. by Washington U. film & media lecturer Hunter Vaughan. Admission is free.
Many works of fiction have been said to be ahead of their time. In the world of motions pictures few are more prophetic than the 1950 comedy classic Champagne For Caesar. By that year, mind you, quiz shows were popular on radio and that young upstart television, but by the end of the decade these programs would inspire a national craze ( and a scandal later depicted in Robert Redford’s film Quiz Show ). Caesar foreshadows all this while showcasing some delightful performances by actors generally not known for big screen comedies. »

Born in St. Louis on May 27, 1911, iconic actor Vincent Price retained a special fondness for his place of origin, and that love is now reciprocated with Vincentennial, a celebration of his 100th birthday in his hometown. Price was not only a notable St. Louisan but one of the 20th century.s most remarkable men. To do full justice to the range of his accomplishments, Vincentennial features not only a 10-day film festival but also a pair of exhibits, a stage production, two publications, and illuminating discussions by Price experts and film historians.
