News and Trailer for BFI’s Gothic Season

bfi_logo_bw_555px1-150x150The BFI have been tormenting us with details of how this year they are going to be exploring the dark side of Gothic cinema. I posted previously about the classic monster films being shown at the The British Museum in August (see here for more info), and now more info has been released about the event.



The BFI will take Britain back to darker times and thrill the nation by uncovering as never before the dark heart of film. With over 150 titles and around 1000 screenings Gothic features spectacularly terrifying special events to thrill every corner of the UK. The project also incorporates the longest BFI Southbank season yet (4 months), UK wide theatrical and DVD releases, an education programme, a new BFI Gothic book and a range of exciting partnerships, special guests and commentators, including project ambassador Sir Christopher Frayling. Gothic will explore film’s most popular theme, spawning some of the medium’s most iconic, powerful and terrifying scenes and characters whose lasting popularity just refuses to die.

With a mix of films being included from Nosferatu, The Shining, The Wicker Man to the modern-day version of The Women in Black, there is sure to be lots of fun and scares for everyone.

Check out the trailer and links below for more info.
