Two more films have been added to the Grimmfest 2012 lineup – one feature and one short – and we have all the details you need right here! Grimmfest runs 4th-7th October in the UK at Manchester’s The Dancehouse theatre.
The feature film is Before Dawn, which was born from an argument between husband and wife Dominic Brunt and Joanne Mitchell. The film’s original concept came from two opposing opinions of what makes a good zombie movie and what frequently makes a bad one. What’s missing and what needed adding to. Before Dawn is the result.
A weekend away. An idyllic cottage nestled within the rolling hills of the English Dales. What starts off as a gripping psychological drama between a struggling married couple suddenly descends into a shocking gruesome nightmare. As panic and confusion set in, Alex and Meg have to confront the fears within themselves and face a desperate fight for survival against a bloody terror which could literally tear them apart forever.
From the north of the UK, Before Dawn is directed by and stars Dominic Brunt (Paddy from “Emmerdale”) along with Joanne Mitchell and Nicky Evans (“Shameless”). Brunt, Mitchell, and Evans will be appearing at Grimmfest for this special screening alongside executive producer Marc Price (director of the recent low budget zombie hit Colin).
Next is the very intriguing sounding Him Inside short film.
Gregory Brewster is a serial killer. The only problem is he’s agoraphobic! Facing an impending eviction from his family home, Gregory has a plan that will save him from being subjected to the one thing he’s terrified of… the outside world. Things don’t quite go to plan, however, when a surprise visit from his new neighbor finds him in a very awkward situation. Starring Reece Shearsmith (The League of Gentlemen, “Psychoville”) and Pollyanna McIntosh (The Woman).
Members of the cast and crew will be appearing at Grimmfest. They hope to have both Reece and Pollyanna alongside director Paul Davis and producer James Pears.
