While you all try to get through this Friday the 13th without any nasty incidents, there’s no such hope next month as GRIMM UP NORTH’s little brother RETRO AND DANGEROUS in Manchester host a double bill of slashers to commemorate the second Friday the 13th of the year!

For one night only, you can enjoy the gory delights of Sean S. Cunningham’s original FRIDAY THE 13TH (1980) - One summer at Camp Crystal Lake, a group of young counsellors begin to get ready to lead the new batch of campers. Unfortunately for the former, someone isn’t happy about what’s going on in the camp and enjoys playing kill the counsellor! As bodies fall to the ground in the camp, no one is safe in this quintessential slasher that spawned a whole army of copycats, sequels and reboots. Not only that, there’s the 1981 bloodfest PROM NIGHT, starring Jamie Lee Curtis and Leslie Nielson! Six years ago, when young Robin Hammond crashed through a broken window, her playmates vowed to keep the accident a secret. They promised that no one would ever know, but someone already does. Now after years of keeping the secret, Robin’s sister Kim is about to be crowned Prom Queen, but a chilling event undermines her party plans. Revenge for the six-year-old murder is around the corner as the unknown observer turns maniacal killer stalking the high school halls. Kim’s friends are disappearing and the dark empty halls are filling with blood. This was the senior prom where some were crowned and others were losing their heads. Join us for this blood soaked classic featuring Jamie Lee Curtis, Disco and a whole lotta slashing!

The shocking double bill takes place at Gorilla in Manchester on (naturally) Friday 13th March.

Tickets are £8 advance available here. For more information, head over to the website.
