Grimmfest Classics & Premieres

indexAfter the amazing Gothic season with the BFI Grimm are gearing up for our next set of movie nights Grimmfest Classics & Premieres opening with two great movie screenings.

First up on the 30th January at the Dance House Theater in Manchester is legendary eighties teen vampire flick THE LOST BOYS.

“Sleep all day. Party all night. Never grow old. Never die. It’s fun to be a vampire.”

“Two brothers move to a new town and soon fall in with the wrong crowd. Nothing unusual about that, except these particular no-mark punks also happen to be blood-swilling vampires. The older brother (Jason Patric) proves easy prey and is soon a fully paid-up member of the undead. But the younger brother (Corey Haim) is made of tougher stuff and, along with a couple of friends, decides to make a stand. Pretty soon the suburbs start swinging to the sound of teen-vampire combat.”

DOORS – 19.00, Event Starts at 19.30.

Closely stalking our classic screening is the first Grimm Premiere of 2014. On the 5th of February at the Dance House Theater we will be showing Blair Erikson’s thrilling horror BANSHEE CHAPTER.2323

“Anne Roland, a young journalist with an appetite for controversy, follows the trail of a strange government research chemical that might have caused the death of her close friend. After tracing the substance to the desert ranch of an infamous retired novelist, she’s drawn into an experience of terror and frightening entities that she cannot escape. The events in this film are based on real documents, actual testimony, and evidence re- searched and uncovered from decades of a terrifying secret program run by the CIA.”

“The Banshee Chapter is enthralling, enjoyably scary and very well crafted” – DREADCENTRAL

“A solidly unsettling little picture…” – Kim Newman, SCREENDAILY

“The Banshee Chapter is both elegant and terrifying.” – Sheila O’Malley, ROGEREBERT.COM
