Default Horror Film Events Happening in London 2018

Hi All

Myself and some other horror and cult film fans/ academics have got together to put two events together at Deptford Community Cinema in London in the coming months. The cinema is a cosy 40 seater space and completely run by volunteers like myself.

Hopefully these will be of interest to others in the forum. If you have any other ideas of events we should try and run, get in touch - everyone is welcome to get involved with programming at the cinema.

KEN RUSSELL DAY
Saturday 26th May, Deptford Cinema, London
Matt will be joined by BAFTA award-winning Stephen Volk (Gothic, Ghostwatch) speaking about Ken Russell's films alongside a double-bill of GOTHIC and ALTERED STATES, and tasty food provided by local, sustainable cafe The Greenhouse, Deptford.
Tickets are available via Deptfordcinema DOT org

HAMMER FILM FESTIVAL
Friday 1st June - Sunday 3rd June, Deptford Cinema, London
3-days jammed packed with Hammer double-bills, short academic talks and a quiz. Join us as we explore some of the lesser-appreciated works of the studio's classic period.
Tickets are available via Deptfordcinema DOT org

Fantastic!

X - The Unknown,The Abominable Snowman and To The Devil a Daughter are personal favourites.

The round table regarding the demise of Hammer sounds fascinating.

I'm really looking forward to the talk about Hammer's unmade scripts. I had the awesome opportunity to see some of these in the DeMontfort Hammer archives in Leicester a few years ago.

Are the archives still open to the public or are the tours just occasional special events?
