Grimmfest – Surprise films Announced!


With Grimmfest on the horizon and the full line up announced right Here we are happy to have the details on the two surprise screenings and boy are they brilliant!

Curse of Chucky
USA; Director: Don Mancini; Starring: Brad Dourif, Fiona Dourif, A. Martinez, Danielle Bisutti,
Year: 2012
Status: Northern Premiere
Screening: Wednesday; Stockport Plaza; 9:30pm – 11:00pm

GRIMM’S EYE VIEW: This latest reboot of the celebrated Devil Doll, by Chucky creator Don Mancini, proves a real family affair, as the Voice of Chucky, Brad Dourif, is joined onscreen by his daughter Fiona as the malevolent mannequin’s latest nemesis. This is something of a revelation! CURSE is beautifully shot, tense and really rather scary, coming on like a gothic haunted house movie with bucket loads of atmosphere. It really is one not to miss. You wont be disappointed.

The Conspiracy
USA; Director: Christopher MacBride; Starring: Aaron Poole; James Gilbert; Ian Anderson
Year: 2012
Status: Northern Premiere
Run Time – 85 Minutes
Screening: Saturday 5th October, 8.00pm – 9.30pm, Dancehouse.

Grimm’s Eye View: You may think the Faux-doc/found footage format has had every drop of blood squeezed out of it but you only need to look at The Conspiracy to see that there’s still plenty of life left yet. Christoper MacBride blurs the line between fact and fiction in his latest offering, featuring two documentarians researching wild-eyed conspiracy theorists (some authentic, some fictional). When a ranting nut called Terrance disappears, we fall down the paranoia fueled New World Order rabbit hole where there’s no division between recognition and coincidence.
