The first guests and two more films have been announced for Grimmfest 2013, which takes place 3rd-6th October in Manchester, England, and we have the full rundown right here, including which “Game of Thrones” star will be there.
From the Press Release:
Dominic Brunt (below left), star of both “Emmerdale” and zombie drama Before Dawn, the latter of which premiered last year at Grimmfest, is returning this year to host a special screening of his new venture, SHELL SHOCKED. Grimmfest will present the Northern premiere of this World War II-set piece, which sees a British solider and a German soldier reach an uneasy stand-off in an abandoned bunker, but soon it becomes apparent they are not alone…
Hot on the heels of his success with his previous short film Him Indoors, Paul Davis (bottom center) returns to Grimmfest with the Northern premiere of THE BODY. “Game of Thrones” star Alfie Allen (bottom right) takes the lead in this slick horror/black comedy in which a killer realises that Halloween is the perfect night of the year to be out and about disposing of a body. Unfortunately, he gets hijacked by some party-goers, and things don’t quite go as he’d planned.
Dominic, Paul, and Alfie will all be doing Q+As and autograph signings at this year’s festival
Shaune Harrison (bottom left) and Oscar winning Mark Coulier (bottom right; The Iron Lady), key prosthetic makeup artist and prosthetic makeup designer, respectively, on World War Z will also be attending this year’s Grimmfest, where examples of their amazing work will be on display at a special exhibition over the weekend. Other films they’ve worked on include the HARRY POTTER, STAR WARS, and ALIEN movies; X-MEN: FIRST CLASS; CAPTAIN AMERICA: FIRST AVENGER; CONAN THE BARBARIAN; and many others.
Harrison says, ‘Can’t wait for this year’s Grimmfest!! Had an awesome time last year attending the premiere of Grabbers at the festival and happy to show and tell fans more about our work this year.’
Festival director Simeon Halligan says: ‘We are especially excited to welcome both Shaune and Mark to Grimmfest this year. We know there will be huge interest as between them they have worked on some of the most popular and important genre movies of the last few decades, creating amazing effects and monsters for the movies we all love.’
These passes allow access to all screenings and Q+As across the festival and are also valid for the Gala opening night. Purchasing the early bird pass will save you well over £30! Strictly limited and only available until the 8th August. When they’re gone, they’re gone!
