Leading UK scream queen Emily Booth is no stranger to both contemporary and classic horror film fans with her starring roles in recent movies Doghouse (2009) and Inbred (2012), co-hosting the Frighten Brighton Classic Horror Film Festival as well as being a presenter on the Horror Channel and a regular at Film Four’s FrightFest in London’s West End. I was lucky enough to catch up with Emily for Rue Morgue magazine during British Horror Month where we discussed such hot topics as female role models in horror, UK fear flicks and Emily’s upcoming projects.
You can read the interview with Emily over at the Rue Morgue website and as an exclusive for Classic Horror Campaign readers here are a couple of extra Q and A’s just for this site!
EXCLUSIVE! EMILY BOOTH ON CLASSIC BRITISH HORROR AND THE RETURN OF BBC2′s HORROR DOUBLE BILLS!
Q. We know that you are a firm follower of the UK’s Classic Horror Campaign. Do you have any favourite “classic” British horror films which you would recommend to others as essential viewing?
A. The Wicker Man is a classic must see of the genre……The Haunting, Peeping Tom and Plague of the Zombies!!!! Gosh there are tons really !
Q. If the BBC were to ever bring back their iconic Saturday night horror double bill seasons, would you like to host the show? And if it wasn’t you, who would you like to see as the presenter?
A. I’d love to host the show of course it would be the biggest honour for me; one I’d genuinely feel passionate about – but of course its never up to people like me or you it’s the ones paying for it! So the BBC would have final say – and of course there are other more well known journalists out there who have good horror knowledge such as Mark Gatiss – who’d also be perfect and I would think he’d make a great presenter for the show – but then I could dress up more!
