Grimm Up North is Manchester’s home of horror and cult films, hosting regular film screenings, double feature events and an annual international film festival: GRIMMFEST! Earlier this week, they contacted us with news of their February screening events in Manchester, UK. They have two classic horror films in store for their fans this month- American Werewolf in London and Tenebrae.
We’ve all seen American Werewolf, but if you can make it to a showing on the big screen – I’d take advantage of it! For something a little different though, Grimm Up North, in collaboration with Arrow Video and Gorilla will be presenting the world’s first public screening of a newly-remastered high definition cut of Argento’s Tenebrae.
A notorious horror classic returns in all its depraved glory. This infamous video nasty updated the classic Giallo blueprint for the gorified 80s, courting controversy and drenching the viewer in crimson arterial spray. Claudio Simonetti’s Goblin masterful soundtracking of the film is “…so fused to the fabric of the picture that Tenebrae might be termed…a giallo musicale; that is, a giallo in which the soundtrack transcends mere accompaniment to occupy the same plane as the action and characters.”
This is an incredibly rare chance to see such an important title in Argento’s oeuvre, with its revered and imposing score, on the big screen.
