I’m sure there are plenty of horror fans amongst Blueprint: Review’s readers so I thought with October hiding around the corner ready to pounce with evil hordes of nasty and terrifying movie treats, it’s the perfect time to promote some horror festival awesomeness.
For those of you anywhere near the north of England, the finest way to get your October horror fix is by attending Celluloid Screams at Sheffield’s Showroom Cinema on 21-23 October 2011. I’ve attended the festival the last two years (check out my write up of last year here) and thoroughly enjoyed it’s range of screenings covering exclusive UK premieres, rare indie screenings and the chance to see some old favourites on the big screen.
This year’s lineup is looking great. As well as theatrical screenings of classics such as Halloween, Re-Animator and Dust Devil, we have UK premieres of Masks, Tomie: Unlimited and Cold Sweat. I’m also excited about hearing from cult favourite Richard Stanley, who will be running a Q&A after a screening of his much anticipated return to cinema screens, the horror compendium The Theatre Bizarre, of which he edited a segment alongside Tom Savini, Douglas Buck, Karim Hussain, Buddy Giovinazzo, Jeremy Kasten and David Gregory.
