With Halloween fast approaching and the Classic Horror Campaign nearing our next classic horror double bill on Sunday 21st October at the we thought we’d take a look back at our screenings so far! This will either bring back memories or make you green with envy that you missed them!
We are also preparing next year’s season of horror double bills and would like you to tell us if there are any particular favourites you’d really love to see back up on the big screen! Remember that we tend to screen one older black and white film followed by something a teeny bit more recent, in the style of the old BBC2 Classic Horror Double Bill seasons of the seventies and eighties. Keep your choice of films pre-1980′s please and we shall see what we can do!
Now enjoy part one of our gallery of horrors as we look back at our Classic Horror Campaign and Frighten Brighton screenings from last year starting with Night Of The Demon (1957) and Vampire Circus (1971) shown at the Roxy Bar & Screen in April 2011…
Next time we look at our events, festivals and screenings so far in 2012…
We’re almost half-way through British Horror Month so we thought we’d take a look at a sub-genre the Brits really excelled at – the horror omnibus film. The first major production of multi-story British horror was the seminal classic Dead of Night in 1945 by the legendary Ealing Studios. This was followed up in the sixties by Amicus Productions’ Dr Terror’s House of Horrors (1964) who then went on to become synonymous with the horror anthology genre through the seventies concluding their run with 1980′s The Monster Club.
Now it’s your turn to vote for your favourite classic British horror omnibus film! Don’t be fooled by some of the seventies titles as they’re not all Amicus – can you identify the non-Amicus productions? As usual, give us a shout if we’ve missed any out but remember we’re not including anything after 1980.
