Heading into May, the UK’s Horror Channel have a number of impressive UK premieres up their sleeves – including Sean Hogan’s terrifically chilling The Devil’s Business (review here) and Keith Wright’s touching and modest Harold’s Going Stiff.
And that’s not all! They’ll also be screening Colin Theys’ Remains and presenting a “Director’s Night with Eli Roth.” Read on for all the dates and details.
22:55, Sat May 4 – HAROLD’S GOING STIFF (2011)
Keith Wright’s very funny and surprisingly touching tale investigates a mystery illness turning men in the north of England into something resembling bloodthirsty ghouls. One such victim is Harold (Stan Rowe), an old man whose transformation into something sub-human might just be arrested by the love of Penny (Sarah Spencer), a dedicated home care nurse. But a group of vigilantes have other ideas.
22:55, Sat May 11 – THE DEVIL’S BUSINESS (2011)
Two hit men, Pinner (Billy Clarke), a cynical veteran, and the inexperienced Cully (Jack Gordon), are sent to murder an old associate of their underworld boss. But things are not all what they seem in their quarry’s house, and the duo descend into the shadowy darkness of their own tortured souls. Exuding a palpable atmosphere of claustrophobic dread, this is an eerily effective gem from director Sean Hogan.
22:55, Sat May 18 – REMAINS (2011)
A vacant casino in Nevada becomes a hellish battleground as a group of human survivors fight a hard-core zombie apocalypse in which the infected grow smarter and stronger every day. Based on a graphic novel by Steve Niles, award-winning director Colin Theys’ feature stars Miko Hughes, whom fans may recognise as the little boy from the original Pet Sematary.
21:00, Thurs May 30 – DIRECTOR’S NIGHT WITH ELI ROTH
Roth, famed director of Cabin Fever and Hostel, took time out at FrightFest Glasgow 2013 during the screening of his new film, Aftershock, to wax lyrical on his love of Italian zombie movies as he explains why City of the Living Dead and Demons are such great inspirations for him.
