GRIMM UP NORTH HORROR FILM FEST
 

Star date: 4th October 2011

SALFORD PUTS ON HORROR SHOW

Grimm Up North 3
October 6-9th
AMC Cinema, Manchester

As the Conservative Party Conference comes to Manchester, a fitting tribute is taking place as the Grimm Up North 3 horror film festival comes to town.

Starring David Cameron, George Osborne…sorry…Yvette Fielding of tv's Most Haunted, Martin Kemp of Spandau and EastEnders, and Robin Hardy, the original Wicker Man director, this third annual Grimm Up North horror spectacular is not to be missed. And it's being put on by a Salford company…

Eighteen films, panels, parties, special guests and premieres make up this year's Grimm Up North 3 festival of sci-fi, fantasy and horror. Running for four days at the AMC Cinema in Manchester, it's being put on by Salford company Travelling Artist based on The Crescent and if the Tories haven't turned your hair white this surely will.

The Festival begins with a Gala Night on Thursday where there will be a special preview of Retreat, a harrowing happening on a remote island, starring Jamie Bell, Thandie Newton and Cillian Murphy. Members of the cast and crew will be guests, with the night hosted by Yvette Fielding from cult tv show Most Haunted.

Friday sees the northern premiere of gothic, psychological shocker, Stalker, Martin Kemp's directing debut and starring Anna Brecon, Jane March and Billy Murray. Kemp and his stars will be at the screening.

On Friday, there's also a special event hosted by Starburst magazine which will be showing exclusive clips from upcoming films including the delightfully named Strippers Vs Werewolves with leading lady Adele Silva, of Emmerdale fame, in attendance to answer questions.

On Saturday, Lucy Davis from The Office is due to attend a screening of her latest `stalk and slash' movie Some Guy Who Kills People. And on Sunday is the highlight of the Festival for anyone who's still shuddering from The Wicker Man first scary time around.

Robin Hardy, the original director of The Wicker Man, brings his long awaited sequel, The Wicker Tree, for its North West premiere. Still starring Christopher Lee, this time some happy clappy gospel singers go off to the Scottish Highlands to spread the word of God…oops!

Altogether, there's 18 films in four shocking days – with psyche chilling names like The Whisperer In Darkness, The Dead and The Theatre Bizarre. Scary, hairy stuff…but can it be worse than a day at the creepy Conservative Party Conference? The jury is out!
