This Wednesday 13th March, head on down to Stockport’s Plaza cinema for Grimm Up North’s H.P. Lovecraft Double Bill!
To celebrate the recent HD remastered release of Stuart Gordon’s 80s follow up to REANIMATOR, they’ll be screening FROM BEYOND, courtesy of Secondsight films, alongside the fantastic THE WHISPERER IN DARKNESS, generally considered the best cinematic portrayal of Lovecraft’s writing, shot in black and white and made to look like a forties Universal horror movie. Having seen Whisperer at Grimmfest 2011, I can certainly tell you that you do not want to miss it!
The screening starts at 7.15pm on Wednesday 13th March 2013 at the Stockport Plaza Cinema. Tickets cost £8 and can be pre-ordered here. The first 15 tickets pre-ordered get an exclusive MANIAC cinema poster. Find out more at grimmfest.com
THE WHISPERER IN DARKNESS (2012): A series of floods in rural Vermont uncovers the bodies of grotesque creatures that seem to match descriptions given in certain local myths and legends. Miskatonic University Folklorist Albert Wilmarth goes to investigate further, and uncovers a conspiracy that extends out into the furthest reaches of space and down into the darkest pits of hell. Featuring Native American folklore, brain transplants, unspeakable cults, and aliens from Pluto, this is a real labour of love by the HP Lovecraft Historical Society. Shot to look like a 1930s RKO horror movie, in elegant B&W, with stylised performances, and elegantly retro production, it will appeal to Lovecraft fans, film fans, and anyone looking for something a little… unusual. THE WHISPERER IN DARKNESS will be released in the UK later this year by Grimm entertainment.
FROM BEYOND (1986 – Remastered in HD):Scientists experimenting with the pineal gland to stimulate a Sixth Sense discover that by doing so, they are able to perceive hostile creatures existing in a dimension parallel to ours. Even worse, the creatures can now see them. Following on from their outrageous, splattery, blackly comic take on Lovecraft’s novella HERBERT WEST: REANIMATOR, Director Stuart Gordon and Writer-Producer Brian Yuzna reunited with stars Jeffrey Combs and Barbara Crampton for this equally garish and gruesome, but rather lesser known follow-up. FROM BEYOND will be available in HD remastered format from March 2013, courtesy of Secondsight films.
I love prosthetic effects, stop-motion animation and gore, but most of all I love a good story!
I adore B-movies and exploitation films in many of their guises and also have a soft spot for creature features.
I review a wide range of media including movies, TV series, books and videogames. I'm a massive fan of author Hunter S. Thompson and I enjoy various genre of videogames with Kingdom Hearts and Harvest Moon two of my all time favs.
