Grimm Up North and Horror Channel join forces for a nightmarish double bill in celebration of the late, great Wes Craven at Stockport Plaza.
Craven is a giant of horror cinema whose lasting contributions to the genre include films such as The Last House on the Left, The Hills Have Eyes and the phenomenally successful Scream series. However, it’s for the creation of the dream-dwelling, blade-fingered Freddy Krueger and the nine-film Nightmare on Elm Street franchise that he’s is best known.
Featuring the writer-director’s original Nightmare on Elm Street and the playfully post-modern Wes Craven’s New Nightmare — in which the fictional Krueger invades the real world to torment the cast and crew responsible for his film franchise — the Stockport Plaza double-bill should be a perfect way for horror fans to alleviate those January blues.
As an added bonus, the organisers have sourced an original 35mm print of Wes Craven’s New Nightmare. Plus, we’re promised a Grimm horror stall with competition prizes up for grabs throughout the night.
