Still/Born Still/Born

It's that time of year again and Grimmfest is back with a slate full of ghastly goodies to frighten film fans. Sponsored by the Horror Channel and Jurys Inn, it's screening some of the highlights of the horror year as well as making way for new talent and delivering, as always, an impressive showcase of shorts.

The festival runs from 5 to 8 October.
