BFI Gothic

 

The scariest British horror film ever made has something for everyone interested in the macabre: black magic, hypnosis, murder, a clown who causes weird weather, Stonehenge and the Reading Room of the British Museum. Oh, and a massive, vengeful demon. The suspenseful script was adapted from an M.R. James short story and expertly directed by Jacques Tourneur, and is presented here in its brand new digital glory.

Horror fan Paul Bareham will be introducing the film and the Eccentronic Research Council will be providing a typically eclectic Science vs. Magic DJ-set in the Showroom Bar afterwards.
