Anyone in the north-west of England with a taste for bloodsuckers could do worse than get themselves to Manchester’s Dancehouse Theatre on Oxford Road this Sunday. The Grimm Up North team are taking over the venue for a day of undead entertainment, with eight films showing over two screens. It’s a nice line-up too, with a mix of old favourites and new releases, including a premiere.
