Grimm Up North have made a splash with their monthly screenings of classic, cult and upcoming horror films and this month’s is certainly going to be the biggest splash yet!
On Friday 16th March at the Anthony Burgess Institute in Manchester, Grimm Up North will be screening their ROGER CORMAN DOUBLE BILL.
First to be screened will be: CORMAN’S WORLD: THE EXPLOITS OF A HOLLYWOOD REBEL
‘Only in Corman’s World will you bewilderingly witness Jack Nicholson choking back tears on camera for the love of the man who gave him his start in the business‘. Alex Stapelton’s brilliant documentary tracks the triumphant rise of Hollywood’s most prolific writer-director-producer, the true godfather of independent filmmaking. A feature-length documentary about Corman’s life, career and remarkable influence on modern moviemaking.
‘Absurdly-titled, cheaply produced and executed with tongue firmly in cheek’. Perhaps the best response to this essentially critic-proof monstrosity is articulated by the male adolescent tourist who, on seeing the sharktopus graphically attack one of the performers at an open-air show, is heard to declare, “Dude, that’s awesome!”
Tickets for this screening cost £6.50 (plus booking fee) and can be purchased online here
The screening starts at 7.30pm prompt

I love prosthetic effects, stop-motion animation and gore, but most of all I love a good story!
I adore B-movies and exploitation films in many of their guises and also have a soft spot for creature features.
I review a wide range of media including movies, TV series, books and videogames. I'm a massive fan of author Hunter S. Thompson and I enjoy various genre of videogames with Kingdom Hearts and Harvest Moon two of my all time favs.
Currently playing: The Witcher 2, Yakuza Zero and Alien: Isolation
