Triple Six Co-Director Andy Deen said “We are so thrilled that we can finally announce the full line-up for Triple Six. As genre fans myself and Chris have spent the last 9 months organising Triple Six and now can’t wait to get until the weekend of May 27 & 28 to sit with real horror fans and watch a weekend of stunning and diverse independent horror cinema. The highlight will of course be the 35mm screening of the seminal horror sci-fi classic Hardware (1990) and the live Q&A with Richard Stanley , but in reality there will be many highlights throughout the weekend as we have such sights to show you”.

Triple Six Co-Director Chris Barnes also added “The reasons behind starting Triple Six were our love for horror (both Andy and I run UK horror websites) but also we wanted to shine a blood red spotlight on the amazing talent in genre filmmaking. I mean when you look at the range of feature and short films we are showing you can see just what passion, vision and skill everyone involved in these films have. Also we are grateful to AMC Manchester as they have fully supported a new horror festival and have made us feel part of the family. Their knowledge and professionalism ensures we will have a smooth and stunning weekend of big screen horror – and I mean BIG SCREEN!!
