Grimmfest presents a 'Japanese Horror' double bill supported by Horror Channel.

Screening: Ringu (1998) and Battle Royale (2000)

Ringu is often named one of the best horror movies of all time and has been very influential in popular culture worldwide. We're delighted to be screening a newly remastered version of the film courtesy of Arrow. Ringu is based on a novel by Koji Suzuki and was directed by Hideo Nakata. A reporter and her ex-husband investigate a cursed videotape that is rumoured to kill the viewer seven days after watching it.

Battle Royale is one of the top ten grossing films in Japan. It is based on a novel by Koushun Takami and has also been highly influential. In the future, the Japanese government captures a class of ninth-grade students and forces them to kill each other under the revolutionary 'Battle Royale act'.

Films will start promptly at the advertised times.
