Grimmfest 2020 Preview #1

In a change to the promised episode, this week we offer the first of our previews of October’s Grimmfest digital horror film festival.  (The latest in our Halloween franchise reviews will come next week instead.)

We hope the diversity of the content will help you forgive the lower-than-usual Zoom-call sound quality.  Guest host Ian Winterton has been working hard interviewing a raft of filmmakers from the festival’s slate, and here he joins regular host Dan to give an overview of the films on offer over the 7th-11th October.  Ian’s been kind enough to invite Dan aboard some of the interviews, so here we present conversations with the people behind three of the upcoming films.

Writer-director Brea Grant discusses her hospital-set, gruesome comedy thriller 12 Hour Shift, co-directors John C Lyons and Dorota Swies talk about their social-realist fracking-themed horror Unearth, and director Cody Calahan and star Ari Millen discuss dark Canadian drama The Oak Room.
