Mick Garris Announced as First Grimmfest Guest

GRIMMFEST 2020 DATES, VENUE EARLY BIRD PASSES & FIRST GUEST ANNOUNCED

2020 sees Grimmfest reaching the dirty dozen: Twelve years at the cutting edge of genre film. And to celebrate, next year’s festival will be bigger, bolder, and bloodier than ever – running from the evening of Wed 7th Oct through to the evening of Sunday 11th Oct at Odeon Great Northern in Manchester UK. Hell has expanded itself: the festival will now run for five days, to cram in even more amazing genre content.

The Grimmfest team is also excited to announce our first confirmed guest.

Mick Garris has been at the heart of the horror genre since the early 80s, working closely with horror legends such as Stephen King, John Carpenter, Tobe Hooper, Dario Argento and many more. A screenwriter, producer and director par excellence, and one of the genre’s top movers and shakers, Mick was also the creator and show runner of the legendary MASTERS OF HORROR anthology series and the driving force behind 2017 Grimmfest favourite NIGHTMARE CINEMA.

Mick will be joining us to share some insights into his extraordinary career, and to receive the prestigious Grimmfest Lifetime achievement award for his work in the horror genre.

Grimmfest 2020 promises to be the biggest and most exciting festival yet, with more special guests and boundary-pushing films than ever before. And here’s your chance to make sure you are first in the queue for everything that’s on offer. A limited amount of reduced price, early bird, full fest passes will be available from 8am (GMT) on Black Friday (29th Nov) for a strictly limited time only.
