BFI Southbank and the British Museum will be launching a spectacular four-month long season of dark and Gothic films at the end of August. Step into the heart of darkness on the British Museum's forecourt for a three day BFI Monster Weekend celebrating the golden age of classic horror films: Jacques Tourneur's Night of the Demon, Peter Cushing and Christopher Lee in Hammer's gory Dracula, followed by the same two male actors in The Mummy.





As the season continues it will encompass four themes: Monstrous, The Dark Arts, Haunted, and Love is a Devil, and steps outside of the BFI's Southbank home. Screenings will take place around the country, including a showing of Kubrick's The Shining at Mapledurham House in Oxfordshire.

Back at the BFI the horror fest will span nearly 100 years, from the silent Nosferatu of the 1920s, via Vincent Price in the 1960s The Masque of the Red Death before coming up to date with Daniel Radcliffe in The Woman in Black.

will be accompanied by discussions, exhibitions, educational events, books and television commissions. Don't be afraid, the Gothic is the unspoken horror within all of us and film is the medium in which it comes to life. Just be careful to check under the bed and to hang garlic round the window before you go to sleep tonight.
