Why Don’t You… Have a Horror-bly Good Time?

Posted on January 23, 2013


Purveyors of all things horror Grimm Up North have got an great event lined up this Saturday at Stockport’s Plaza. In advance of exclusive screenings of not one, but two British horror movies, there will be a Q&A session where scriptwriter James Moran will be chatting about his new film Tower Block and writer and producer of Hollow, Matt Holt will join him answering questions about creating contemporary British thrillers.

An accomplished screenwriter for shows like Doctor Who, Torchwood and Spooks, James will be discussing his work on Tower Block as well as seminal contemporary British horror movies Severance and Cockneys vs. Zombies. James will be joined on stage by Mancunian, Matt Holt the writer and producer of new Brit horror movie Hollow. Matt will be telling audiences about how the movie got made and its journey from successful, award winning, festival screenings through to US and UK distribution. A must for all new and wannabe film makers and genre move fans alike. Hollow also screens later the same evening.

Tower Block

One tower block. Fifteen tenants. One sniper.

Someone is picking off the last remaining occupants of a tower block, using a high powered, silenced rifle. Nobody else has heard the shots, and no help is coming. If the terrified victims can’t figure out how to escape, they’re all going to be killed, one by one.

With career-defining performances from Sheridan Smith, Jack O’Connell, Russell Tovey, Kano and Ralph Brown, this fantastically gripping British thriller is a movie not to be missed.


This British found-footage horror movie has made real waves on the international film festival circuit and now gets a well deserved UK release on the 28th January. Grimm Up North present this special pre release screening.

Set in a remote village which has been haunted by a local legend for centuries. One day a group of friends decide to explore the folklore, however they are soon presented with grave and terrifying consequences. HOLLOW follows in the fine tradition of British rural horrors like THE WICKER MAN and WAKEWOOD.
