Grimm Up North is a group of movie lovers that arrange regular screenings of horror and cult films around Manchester. The group is currently presenting a season of Stephen King adaptations at The Dancehouse on Oxford Road. This Thursday’s screening is Carrie – the 1976 Brian de Palma original, not the unnecessary remake from a couple of years back. Based on King’s first novel, the film tells the story of an outcast teenager who is emotionally abused at home and school. Her pent-up emotions cause her to gain telekinetic powers. Things come to a head at her senior prom, in a famous scene not for the squeamish. The film season continues over the next couple of months with Salem’s Lot (Thu 12 Mar), Creepshow (Thu 9 Apr) and Pet Sematary (Thu 30 Apr). See Grimm Up North’s website below for more info.

Thu 19 Feb onwards, The Dancehouse, 10A Oxford Road, M1 5QA, 7.30pm, £6.50,

Thu 19 Feb - Thu 30 Apr
