When we announced the Grimmfest Lineup a few days back there was two film slot left open for “surprise films.” Well, those names have been revealed and we have them for you below. Dig it.
If you’re in the area fiends, check this film festival out. It’s a blast every year.
The first Grimmfest surprise is the latest in Don Mancini’s ever growing Child’s Play franchise, Curse of Chucky, screening as part of Preview Night on Wednesday 2nd October (9.30pm–11.00pm) at The Stockport Plaza.
Second is Christopher MacBride’s critically acclaimed thriller The Conspiracy, screening during the fest proper on the evening of Saturday 5th October (8.00pm–9.30pm) at The Dancehouse, Manchester.
Also added to the collection of fantastic short films appearing at Grimmfest are Irish director Sean Smith’s ‘Gaelic Gothic tribute to Nosferatu’ The Gloaming and Ben Godger’s Next Exit.
Now in its fifth year, Grimmfest has quickly become the premiere UK festival of genre film outside London. The Grimmfest team have scoured the globe at film markets from Hong Kong to Los Angeles to Cannes to find the most exciting new movies that will thrill, scare, and mess with your head.
