Along with finalizing the festival programme (click here for that), the Grimm Up North team have added six more fantastic horror/fantasy movies to their already full to bursting festival line-up! Read on for the details.
* Altitude (Canada/USA) UK Premiere
Five teenage friends, including rookie pilot Sara (Jessica Lowndes, 90210), rent a small plane for a weekend getaway but unfortunately a mysterious force wants them all to die…
* Sweatshop (US) UK Premiere
A group of obnoxious club kids break into an empty warehouse planning to use it for a rave. But of course, it’s not quite as empty as they think… A sleazy, cruel, and darkly hilarious throwback to the glory days of low-budget, high-body-count, serial-killer-on-the-loose shlockers.
* Chased by Satan (Indonesia) UK Premiere
A darkly funny Indonesian cross between The Ring and Final Destination.
* The Splat Pack (US) Northwest Premiere
Documentary featuring interviews with Alexandre Aja (Haute Tension, Piranha 3D), Darren Lynn Bousman (Saw, Repo!), Adam Green (Hatchet, Frozen), Neil Marshall (Dog Soldiers, Centurion), Eli Roth (Hostel), and many more!
* Dead Hooker in a Trunk (Canadian/US) UK Premiere
An underground Canadian grind house movie directed, written by, and starring identical twins Jen and Sylvia Soska with bags of punk rock attitude.
* Opstandelsen (The Resurrection) (Denmark) Northwest Premiere
Simon’s three siblings gather at his funeral. But all hell breaks loose as the undead rise from their graves, driving the siblings down into the deep dark catacombs below the church.
