Darkness over Britain

Cornerhouse looks to revitalise interest in the British Horror movie. All films featured over the weekend originated in the five year period 1968 – 1973, immediately following the heyday of Hammer studios. Each takes a wildly different approach to the horror genre, and their makers might claim they shouldn’t be called horror at all. But their powerful effect, achieved with subtlety and intelligence, is the common ground that links them all.HighlightsFriday 20 October at 6.10pmTHE STONE TAPESaturday 21 October 12.00 – 5.45pmTHE BLOOD BEAST: The Films of Michael Reeves+ WITCHFINDER GENERALTHE WICKER MAN (18) + Keep on Burning
