Lee Hardcastle at Grossmann 2012
As the first of many attractions of this year's Grossmann we announce the arrival of British animator Lee Hardcastle, author of extremely gory and witty short films that are definitely not for children. With great pride we would also like to add that this will be the very first time that Lee Hardcastle will be personally presenting his films to a festival audience, and he promises some special surprises for all of you.
Hardcastle's claymation films are a genuine internet mega hit (his YouTube channel has over 24 million views), and his short adaptations of classics horror films such as The Exorcist, The Evil Dead and The Thing have charmed fans of the fantastic around the world. With his short film T is for Toilet, he will also appear in the highly anticipated horror anthology The ABCs of Death which features 26 directors such as Srdjan Spasojević, Noboru Iguchi, Xavier Gens, Yoshihiro Nishimura, Nacho Vigalondo and Jake West and is produced by Drafthouse Films. Hardcastle will also be teaming up with director Ben Wheatley (Kill List), upcoming star of Mondo Macabro Movies, for the prison exploitation film Megaevilmotherfuckers.
