Grimmm have got some great filmmakers showcasing their features as part of their Horror Nights on 11th & 12th Dec. Find our more at https://xmahorrornights.eventive.org/films
Christmas might not have been cancelled yet, but it’s likely to feel a little constrained by circumstances this year, what with Santa forced to self-isolate and everything (he’s an old man, after all, he’s got to be careful). But that doesn’t mean you have to settle for a lump of coal in your stocking. Grimmfest has a suitably sinister sack-full of goodies already loaded up on the sleigh. (Or should that be “slay”?) Two nights of seasonal shockers and merry mean-spiriteness: fearsome feature films, startling shorts, and all manner of eerie extras, to wish you a suitably chilling Christmas and a cruel Yule. Just add mulled wine and mince pies for the perfect festive filmshow.
FOR THE SAKE OF VICIOUS – Lora Burke
An innocent nurse, a vengeful father and an injured hostage face off against a pack of violent intruders as they descend upon their place of refuge.
ROSE – Sophie Rundle
Gripped by a violent, terrifying illness, Rose lives in seclusion with her husband, but the arrival of a stranger shatters the fragile refuge they have built.
RED SCREENING (AKA Al Morir La Matinee)
A rainy night in Montevideo, 1993, and Cinema employee Ana finds herself taking her ailing father’s place in the projection booth for the final screening of the evening – a gory old horror movie. But there’s a violent maniac loose in the auditorium, and the screening which follows proves far more final than either she or the audience could ever imagine…
DEATHCEMBER – Barbara Crampton, Pollyanna Macintosh
A collection of 24 films that take a look at the dark side of the festive season. 24 international directors with the most diverse ideas and styles; linked by short animated segments that deal with the Advent calendar itself.
