Starting off the festival is the UK Premiere of Tokyo Ghoul – Live Action on the 13th. The clue is in the name, this is a Live Action adaptation of the Tokyo Ghoul series.
Also screening on Friday is Vampire Hunter D: Bloodlust. In this film, humanity lives in fear of vampires. When Doris Lang is forced to become the latest wife of the vampire Count Magnus Lee, she hires D, the elusive Vampire Hunter to save her.
On the 14th there will be three films, the first one is the UK Premiere of Lu Over the Wall.
