With Nosferatu currently being screened as part of the BFI's Gothic: The Dark Heart of Film, we look back at this classic example of early horror cinema.

Theatre of Blood is a unique film starring the genre great, Vincent Price.

 

The thespian Edward Lionheart has had one performance panning too many from theatre critic circles, and exacts a unique and unforgiving revenge while at the same time, taking his acting performances to new murderous heights.

 

This truly is Vincent Price as never seen before.

It’s that time of year where we can take some time off work to be with friends and family to eat, drink and sleep too much, and watch tv to our heart’s content without the slightest hint of guilt. Part of the festive season is the watching of endless, cheesy Christmas films, and the relief that you won’t need to watch them again for another year.

 

However, for those of us who may crave an alternative to such Christmassy viewing pleasures, it’s a good time of year to watch some Christmas-themed horror films – the perfect combination!

 

We offer a few recommendations of Festive Frights for your consideration.
