1903. Paris, Monmartre and the Theatre du Grand Guignol opens its doors to an unsuspecting public. The plays, rife with madness and murder, are sold out every night to an awestruck public, avid for the horrors that are nightly set before them. But when a psychiatrist, obsessed with the gruesome dramas, ingratiates his way into the company and starts to unpick the author's mind, the boundaries between theatre and truth begin to blur...
A black comedy, a demented, psychological thriller and an unrepentant splatter-fest, 'Grand Guignol' is a head-spinning, genre-bending phantasmagoria, guaranteed to keep you guessing - and wincing - to the very last horror show...
