Manchester born filmmaker Andrew Goth is bringing his highly anticipated and mindbending film ‘DXM’ to Grimmfest 2015 for its World Premiere on Sunday 4th October.
Starring Sam Neil, Tom Payne, Antonia Cambell-Hughes and Melia Kreiling ‘DXM’ focuses on a group of young bio-engineers who discover that quantum theory can be used to transfer motor-skills from one brain to another. They freely spread this technology, believing it to be a first step towards a new intellectual equality. But as the mysterious past of one of their group is revealed, dark forces emerge that threaten to subvert their discovery into a means of mass-control.
Chronicling a sub-atomic struggle for the subconscious, the latest film from Andrew Goth, maverick director of the hallucinagenic vampire Spaghetti Western GALLOWWALKERS, was one of the big talking points of this year’s Cannes Film Festival.
A wild and wonderful fusion of religion, quantum physics, cyberpunk psychedelia, and martial arts; exploding with mindboggling ideas and stunning imagery, with fantastic production design and startling locations, it is unlike anything else you will see this year. Strap yourselves in; it’s a wild ride.
This world premiere screening is guaranteed to bring the festival to a suitably epic conclusion as our Closing Night film with the director and members of the cast in attendance. Cast member Tom Payne has just been cast in the latest season of The Walking Dead.
Other highlights for Grimmfest 2015 include our Opening Gala and the North West Premiere of acclaimed horror THE HALLOW with director Corin Hardy and star Joseph Mawle in attendance.
Punk legend Henry Rollins stars in the UK premiere of bar-hopping biblical Vampire flick HE NEVER DIED. SFX maestro Shaune Harrison (World War Z, Avengers: Age of Ultron) presents the world premiere of his directorial debut, THE BOX with the film’s star, Dominic Brunt.
Paul Hyett’s gripping werewolves on a train shocker, HOWL and David Keating’s eerie rural witchcraft chiller CHERRY TREE, both receive their North West Premieres and cast and crew will be in attendance for both films.
We also have a charity screening of the classic SCREAM in tribute to the recently deceased Horror maestro Wes Craven.
All that is just the tip of the iceberg with 34 Movies playing across the four days, 1st-4th October at the Odeon Printworks in Manchester.
