As well as the film and television work, Stephen has written numerous novels, novellas and short stories including contributing to last year’s excellent Studio Of Screams which was a portmanteau novel in the vein of the Amicus films of the 1960s and 1970s. His latest book “Under A Raven’s Wing” explores the early life of Sherlock Holmes and his meeting with C. Auguste Dupin (Edgar Allan Poe’s legendary detective).

Join us for a Q&A with Stephen followed by a 35th Anniversary screening of Gothic.

Gothic (18)
UK 1986 87 mins
Dir: Ken Russell

In 1816 the poets Byron and Shelley, Byron’s doctor Polidori and Shelley’s mistress Mary Godwin (later to become his wife) gathered in a villa on Lake Geneva and dared each other to write ghost stories. The results were Polidori’s ‘The Vampire’ and Mary Shelley’s ‘Frankenstein’. In Ken Russell’s recreation of that fateful night, the young Romantics hold a demonic seance and descend into a sex and opium-fuelled nightmare world.
