The hor­ror, the hor­ror... movie fans cel­e­brate lure of gore

Yorkshire Post - Culture & The Guide - - FILM -

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:

FES­TI­VAL SHOCK­ERS: Jo Hart­ley in In­bred, above, and Dust Devil, right, both be­ing screened in the Cel­lu­loid Screams fes­ti­val, Sh­effield.
