GRIMM’S EYE VIEW:
Widely regarded as one of the true masterpieces of Hammer’s golden era, this classic version of Dennis Wheatley’s famous novel features director Terence Fisher at the peak of his considerable game, a sharp, intelligent screenplay from the great Richard Matheson, the mighty Christopher Lee in a rare heroic role, and a truly hateful villain in the eminently hissable Charles Gray. Grimm is delighted to be presenting an opportunity to see this much-loved film on the big screen, and we can confirm that Patrick Mower, who pays Simon Aron will be joining us for a Q&A afterwards.
