GRIMMFEST’s special guest will be actress and horror genre icon BARBARA CRAMPTON. Renowned for her roles in cult classics such as RE-ANIMATOR and FROM BEYOND, Barbara continues to be a major figure in contemporary genre cinema, appearing in such acclaimed recent releases as YOU’RE NEXT, BEYOND THE GATES, SUN CHOKE, WE ARE STILL HERE and REPLACE.
Festival director Simeon Halligan said: “This is our 10th anniversary year and to celebrate, we will be focusing on women in horror. We’ve already announced our new awards structure and the all-female jurybut we also felt it was perfect timing to invite one of our favourite screen stars to the festival”.
Barbara will be talking about her acting career and will introduce a special screening of 80’s horror classic RE-ANIMATOR as well as a premiere of one of her new movies.
She will also receive a lifetime achievement award, sponsored by Horror Channel.

Youll also see me roaming around the event (if you happen to know what I look like that is) I love everything about Grimmfest, its film programmes, the atmosphere and well…I did say everything didnt I so there no need to list them all. Its one of my favourite film festivals of the year and if you attend, youll know why.
