GRIMM UP NORTH: DARK MOVIES, NORTHERN GORE

Okay then, so here I am going to do a little promotion to a very awesome film festival local to myself right now which has been going for a couple of years now, around the time of Halloween  in Manchester, north east England. But more recently the good folk involved have started to put in screenings of cult movies as individual occassions with specific themes, recognising historical periods in the history of horror movies. They have had so far-

Seventies Sci-fi Special, Samurai Splatter Double Bill, Arthouse Horror double, very recently a ROGER CORMAN double bill and now this week I am very pleased to see the classic splatter gore horror LAMBERTO BAVA directed and DARIO ARGENTO produced DEMONS double bill evening.

Son of hugely influential director of classic Italian controvertial horror MARIO BAVA, LAMBERTO took the skills of his father and moved right with the wave of eighties graphic splatter gore with the DEMONS movies, with the help of his father’s friend and the most famous auteur director of Italy, DARIO ARGENTO producing.

I came to the films late, a few years back, but they certainly have their own style, intensity and disturbing macabre gore shocks in abundance. For fans of the biggest chills, scares and bloody terror, go see this special event if you can.

I applaud the fine folk at GRIMM UP NORTH, and hope that this mighty dark festival and regular events continue on for a long, long time.
