The full line-up for this year's Grimmfest horror film festival in Manchester has been announced, with Brian O’Malley’s Let Us Prey to open it, supported by 'vegan feminist horror' short The Herd. Four days of screenings and events will include a live performance of the Suspiria soundtrack by Claudio Simonetti's Goblin, which is strongly recommended by fans who have seen them at the last two Glasgow Film Festivals. The closing gala will feature the UK première of Suburban Gothic, directed by Richard Bates Jr and starring Matthew Gray Gubler, Kat Dennings and Ray Wise.

Other festival highlights include zomromcom Life After Beth, surreal drama Coherence and manic creature feature Zombeavers.

"We always try to make each Grimmfest bigger than the last and I think this year has been really strong for independent horror and genre titles, I’m really excited by what were going to screen at Grimmfest, I’m convinced its our best line up yet!" said festival director Simeon Halligan.

Grimmfest will run from 2 to 5 October. You can see our coverage so far here.
