After enjoying huge success in 2012, Grimmfest is back to thrill - and chill - Manchester horror fans, with a line-up of scary movies that includes international festival hits, old favourites and cutting edge shorts. There's some great documentary stuff that will really make you think and, of course, there's a party. Screenings will take place in the Dancehouse Theatre, Stockport Plaza and the Lass O'Gowrie.


The festival runs from 3 to 6 October.
