Join us for an illustrated talk by Film Historian Johnny Walker ahead of the new edition of the seminal “Hammer And Beyond – The British Horror Film by Peter Hutchings, a landmark work in British film criticism. This new illustrated edition brings the book back into print for the first time in two decades. Featuring Hutchings' socially charged analyses of genre classics from Dead Of Night (1945) and The Curse Of Frankenstein (1957) to The Sorcerers (1967) and beyond, it also includes several of Hutchings' later essays on British Horror. Editor Johnny Walker will be addressing the books place in film history, its significance, the key themes and British Horror since the publication.
