Grimm Up North are proud to host the English premiere of BELOW ZERO at their GRIMMFEST 2012 International Festival of Horror and Cult Films in Manchester . Below Zero is a movie you may not of heard much about, but you will do soon!
Pitched somewhere between TEXAS CHAIN SAW MASSACRE and ADAPTATION, with a heavy dose of FARGO in the use of location and performances, this movie plays facinating games with appearance and reality. It’s as much a study in psychology as it is of extreme horror. Beautifully shot and nicely acted by Edward Furlong, BELOW ZERO also brings Horror icon Michael Berryman THE HILL HAVE EYES) back to our screens in one of his most interesting performances.
A failing screenwriter attempts to overcome writer’s block by having himself shut away in a meat locker for a week. As he starts to write, the boundaries between reality and imagination become increasingly blurry and the consequences ever more horrific.
The Grimm team are also very pleased that writer/producers Signe Olynyk and Bob Schultz will be attending the special screening and if you’re lucky, members of the cast might just join them too!
Below Zero is the fourth film to be announced for the festival which will be held at The Dancehouse, Oxford St, Manchester from October 4th to 7th 2012, with Nightbreed: The Cabal Cut, Attack of the Werewolves and a HD version of Basket Case starring alongside.
