The horror, the horror... movie fans celebrate lure of gore
opens with Inbred, a gory and entertaining shocker filmed in Yorkshire and starring Jo Hartley from This is England.
“It’s a brilliantly un-PC and thoroughly gross experience from start to finish,” smiles Nevitt, who is delighted that Hartley and other members of the cast will be on hand for a post-screening Q&A.
Other guests include Keith Wright and Richard Guy, the duo behind Harold’s Going Stiff, a sweetly surreal (and occasionally brutally comic) tale of a man slowly turning into a zombie. It was filmed largely in South Yorkshire.
Maverick filmmaker Richard Stanley will be honoured with screenings of his African opus Dust Devil and new anthology The Theatre Bizarre. Artist/ animator Ashley Thorpe, from Exeter, will present his “penny dreadful” The Hairy Hands, based on a Devon folk tale.
Of the new releases Nevitt is keen to promote Tomie:
