Celluloid Screams presents....
Harold Gimble is in a bad way. As the first-known sufferer of Onset Rigors Disease (ORD) – a neurological condition that begins with stiffness of the limbs and ends in violent, zombie-like state – Harold faces an uncertain future, not least because of a group of zombie-killing vigilantes who have placed him at the top of their hitlist. A glimmer of hope emerges in the form of therapy nurse Penny Rudge, who strikes up an unlikely friendship with the lonely pensioner. Penny initially appears to offer Harold the potential for recovery, but as his condition worsens, Harold becomes a target for both the medical establishment who intend to use him as a guinea pig and the idiotic thugs who are anxiously awaiting the opportunity to hunt him down.
Filmed entirely on location in and around Penistone, Harold’s Going Stiff is a refreshingly original take on the zombie genre that is both touching and very funny.
We are delighted to welcome Director Keith Wright & Producer Richard Guy for a Q&A session after the screening.
