Mikhail Red’s “Deleter” starring Nadine Lustre bagged the Best Scare award at the 15th Grimmefest Manchester’s International Festival of Fantastic Film.

“Always a hotly contested category as jurors debate what precisely constitutes a “scare” and whether to select a traditional “jump scare” or something more… intangible,” the jury said.

“In the case of DELETER, what impressed and stayed with the jury, rather than any one moment, was the eerie, unsettling mood and atmosphere of the film as a whole,” they added.

The blockbuster horror film also bagged major awards during the Metro Manila Film Festival (MMFF) in 2022.

Here are the following award winners for Grimmfest 2023:

  • Best scare: Deleter
