Yesterday we took a look back at the Classic Horror Campaign and Frighten Brighton screenings of 2011. Today we take another trip down memory lane and recall all of our screenings so far this year – including a look at the double bills and triple bills which didn’t quite happen for one reason or another! Sometimes even the best-laid plans come unstuck due to circumstances beyond our control!

We started off 2012 with an extremely popular Hammer Horror double bill at the as voted for by YOURSELVES classic horror fans!

And these are the events that didn’t quite happen….

Horror fans from all over the country had a fang-tastic day at Frighten Brighton 2012 yesterday at the Komedia, Brighton’s premiere live entertainment venue! Classic Horror Campaign events organisers Cyberschizoid and Scare Sarah alongside TV’s top horror host Emily Booth introduced films from across five decades from the thirties to the seventies from noon onwards. Every attendee was given a free issue of Shock Horror Magazine and had the chance to win some exclusive horror giveaways during Cyberschizoid’s Horror Quiz throughout the day. Hemlock Books were also on hand selling their excellent horror film books and magazines at special discount prices.

The sold out event was so popular that people were turned away at the door as the packed house inside the Komedia enjoyed the all day horror film marathon. Cyberschizoid, Scare Sarah and Emily Booth chatted informally with the crowd about the movies being screened as well as their shared love of classic horror. The audience tweeted along using the hashtag #frightenbrighton giving their reviews of the films as they screened and events as they happened. The hashtag #frightenbrighton2013 even began to mini-trend as the enthusiastic crowd showed their desire for more of the same next year!

The next Classic Horror Campaign event is their double bill of Island of Lost Souls (1932) and a rare screening of Corruption (1967) as part of the Scala Beyond festival at the Roxy Bar & Screen, London. Shock Horror Magazine will once again be sponsoring the event and you can buy tickets in advance from WeGotTickets!
