Witchcraft & Black Magic in British Cult Cinema

Witchcraft & Black Magic in British Cult Cinema

A Hemlock Horror Companion

Discussing the role of witchcraft and the occult in the cult classics of British horror cinema’s ‘Golden Age’.

Bob Clark: I'm Going to Kill You!

A Hemlock Horror Companion

Focussing on the life and work of film director Bob Clark, whose eclectic career was brought to an untimely end by a car accident in 2007. Clark was responsible for several cult horror hits but is probably best-remembered for Deathdream, Murder By Decree and especially 1974’s Black Christmas, which was instrumental in setting in train the ‘slasher’ sub-genre of the late 1970s and ’80s...
