Grimmfest; the horror and cult film festival in Manchester, North England, is fast becoming one of the most prominent genre festivals in the UK attracting premieres, special guests and plenty of media attention.
This year the festival kicked off with what may be two of the most talked about horror films of the year, Scott Derrickson’s unbearably creepy Sinister and American Mary; the ultra stylish sophomore effort from the immeasurably talented Twisted Twins (Dead Hooker In a Trunk) that both scared and impressed audiences in equal measure.
Bloody Disgusting joined in the fun on Saturday for a day full of independent gems, top rate shorts and a couple of pleasant surprises. Head inside for a round up of the best bits! READ MORE
Written and directed by Miguel Urrutia, and starring Luis Fernando Bohorquez and Andrea Montenegro, we’ve landed a sales poster and first details for Wake Up and Die.
“Clarissa wakes up early morning, naked with no idea where she is. She soon discovers that she is in Dorian ‘s bed, a complete stranger. Dorian might appear to be the perfect man, but he is quite the opposite. He’s actually a serial killer. His true colors show when he not only rapes Clarissa, but kills her. Surprisingly, Clarissa awakes again and realizes that her death is just the beginning…
Again and again and again, she re-awakes to what appears to be the same night. She endures a brutal strangling, stabbings, a broken neck and other painful deaths in a seemingly endless cycle of terror. After numerous disturbing deaths, Clarissa wakes up, determined to put into action a plan using clues collected from each terrifying memory.
In a dramatic climax, she kills Dorian … and she likes it. Was her revenge really worth the price of escaping her deadly dreams?”
