Deck the North: Grimm Xmas screenings

Manchester’s premier purveyors of horror, Grimm Up North, are back with a couple of screenings to keep you screaming through the holidays.

Grimm are presenting two screenings this month that contain a mix seasonal classics and future classics. Kicking off on the 14th December with a double bill presentation of this year’s much-discussed V/H/S and the newly re-released classic holiday horror, Christmas Evil.

V/H/S is the result of the combined efforts of Ti West, Adam Wingard, David Bruckner, and a few more of their directing buddies, who got together to create a found footage/portmanteau masterpiece that oozes scary cool from every loading flap. Christmas Evil, however, follows a different path. Described by John Waters as the “greatest Christmas movie ever made”, it has some rough edges but is definitely something worth seeing with an audience.

The second seasonal double bill matches up two new movies for your viewing pleasure, The Corridor and When The Lights Went Out.

Based on a series of real events in Yorkshire When The Lights Went Out brings the haunted house genre slap bang into the real world. Described as a “proper Northern horror film”.  Both shot and set just across the M62, this is a great opportunity for fans to support homegrown movie talent. Canadian flick, The Corridor, follows a group of people consumed by a supernatural force in the snowy forests of Nova Scotia.

Both events are taking place at The Dancehouse which is located on Oxford Road, Manchester.

The Grimm Store will be open for both of these events, selling discounted horror related items such as shirts, DVDs, and posters, perfect for stocking fillers.
