Grimmfest at Odeon Great Northern, City Centre and online, 6–9 October 2022, from £110 - Book now

Grimmfest have already started lining up titles for 2022 and it looks like it’s going to be another banner year for Manchester’s premiere genre film fest. Each year, film fans from far and wide gather at the Odeon Great Northern for long weekend of thrills, spills and chills, all in competition for a coveted Reaper award.

This year is no different, and audiences can look forward to screenings of the likes of Ryan Stevens Harris’s gothic fairy tale Moon Garden, Scott Slone’s genre-savvy found footage feature Malibu Horror Story and UK cannibal black comedy Feed Me. From Argentina, we’re very intrigued by the sound of Pussycake, which is billed as “Josie and the Pussycats colliding with Lucio Fulci.”

There are stars too, Japanese maestro Ryûhei Kitamura’s The Price We Pay sees Emile Hirsch and Stephen Dorff as hitmen who come up against illegal organ traffickers. While Raúl Cerezo and Fernando González Gómez’s The Passenger riffs on John Carpenter’s classic The Thing for a horror-comedy road movie with a twist.

Of course there’s plenty more to be announced, so watch this space. But with the line up looking so promising already, you might want to go ahead and book an advance pass now.
