Do you have a taste for creatures of the night? Do you want to find out why the dark side is so enticing, and why we all secretly - or not so secretly - enjoy watching horror flicks. You don't have to be a sadist to like gothic films; there is also an intellectual pleasure one can get.
The BFI Southbank is letting you delve deeper into the heart of dark films in a series of talks about Gothic Cinema. Leading experts will discuss four different topics in Reuben Library, illustrating key themes, and raising issues. All tickets are £6.
From the children of Midwich in Village of the Damed to Regan, who is possessed by the Devil in The Exorcist, we seem to love stories about evil children. All kids can be little devils, but these children take evil to the max. Michael Blyth, Emma Wilson and Sarah Wright will discuss through three different readings that explore how the 'Child of the Night' portray social anxieties.
