An Introduction to Horror Film

Join film-maker and horror fan Ben Ewart-Dean for a five-week exploration of the themes and techniques that make up the horror film. Each week will focus on a different theme, ranging from the early years of horror, via the British folk horror of the 1970s and the American horror cycles of the 1980s, all the way up to the present day.

The sessions will be made up of a combination of informal lectures and discussion, along with a selection of clips from some of the classics and lesser-known gems of the genre. By the end of the course, you will have explored some of the hidden nooks and crannies of one of the most fascinating and wide-ranging areas of film.

Course fees are £55.00/£45.00, and course members will receive reduced price tickets to any films in the BFI’s Gothic season. Please contact our box office for tickets.
