Written and Directed by Pollyanna McIntosh ( @PollyAMcIntosh ) ‘Darlin’ comes to Manchester at this years Grimmfest ( @grimmfest )

Darlin is headed to Grimmfest this year. Grimmfest, one of the UK’s leading cult and genre film festivals, is in its 11th year. The
festival will take place at the Odeon Great Northern cinema in Manchester, UK, from 3 – 6 October 2019.
In total the festival will host 21 feature films and 19 short films, which includes 6 European  premieres, 17 UK premieres, 2 English premieres and 15 Northern UK premieres. But lets talk Darlin.

Found at a Catholic hospital filthy and ferocious, feral teenager Darlin’ is whisked off to a care home run by The Bishop and his obedient nuns where she is to be tamed into a “good girl.” However, Darlin’ holds a secret darker than the “sins” she is threatened with, and she is not traveling alone. The Woman, equally fierce and feral, who raised her is ever present and is determined to come for her no matter who tries to step in her way.
Continuing the twistedly vicious adventure of Lucky McKee’s cult hit The Woman (2011) and also adding to the story of Offspring (2010), Darlin’ sees Pollyanna McIntosh both in front of and behind the camera and as I knew she would expertly commanding an all-consuming feast for the senses and sensibility in equal measure. The Woman was and still is one my all time favourite films so you can imagine how excited I am to see the continuation of that story. Also with the fact that I will be in the audience watching the film unfold, im also super excited to hopefully finally meet Pollyanna after many years of swapping tweets with her about all things film. Pollyanna also appeared on my podcast a few years ago (before she joined the cast of AMC’s The Walking Dead) so whilst Darlin continues the journey of The Woman, this years Grimmfest continues my story of being a fan of Pollyanna’s work.
