Northern Premiere

A struggling all-female rock band kicks off a new tour, hoping to rekindle their popularity. When they catch the attention of horrors from beyond our reality, the band realizes that being forgotten by their fans is the least of their problems.

Grimmfest Says: Josie and the Pussycats collide with Lovecraft and Lucio Fulci, as a no-nonsense all-girl rock band unwisely agree to an extra gig as a favour to a friend, only to discover that there are far worse things out there on the road than ticket scalpers, chiselling promotors and indifferent audiences. Such as pan-dimensional alien brain parasites, a mysterious, inhuman masked killer with an arsenal of high-tech weaponry and a whole town full of infected, ravening zombies. This is one situation they can’t play their way out of. With its eye-popping candy colours, snappy, scrappy punk rock attitude, cool rock chick protagonists, spectacularly gruesome practical gore FX, Pablo Parés’ deliriously demented pyrotechnic splatterfest, is sure to prove future midnight movie classic. In the immortal words of Robert Zimmerman, the incorrigible Folk Judas himself, at that infamous Manchester Free Trade Hall Concert, “Play it f**king loud!”
