The line-up for Grimmfest’s International Festival of Fantastic Film 2022 edition has been unveiled.

“The Loneliest Boy In The World” (U.K.) is set to open the U.K. horror and genre festival. The dark comedy, which stars Hero Fiennes Tiffin, Ashley Benson and Ben Miller is directed by Martin Owen and tells the story of “an unstable and otherworldly mother’s boy [who] seeks a replacement family in the local cemetery.”

Lee Thongkham’s “The Lake” (Thailand), a creature feature that sees the inhabitants of a small town take on a “threat of huge proportions,” will close the festival four days later.

Also on the line-up are the international premiere for Justin Long and Kate Bosworth’s “House Of Darkness,” (U.S.), Cannes film “Final Cut” (France) from from Oscar-winning writer-director Michel Hazanavicius, and Vincenzo Ricchiuto’s “The Goldsmith” (Italy), which features Italian cinema star Stefania Casini.
