Curated by Abertoir for the 2013 edition of the festival, our Scream and Scream Again: The Golden Age of British Horror exhibition continues to horrify and delight as it tours venues across the UK. Having previously displayed in venues in England and Northern Ireland, we're pleased to announce further venues will be displaying the exhibition.
The 1950s to the 1970s saw a dramatic change in British horror, somewhat different to horror as we know it today. Casually referred to as horror’s golden age, the period saw actors such as Christopher Lee and Peter Cushing become household names, while the British horror film studio became a major influence worldwide.
From the early gothic style to the infiltration of pop culture in the 1970s, this exhibition takes a look at films from this period and how they were marketed abroad through a collection of rare original international movie posters and lobby cards from around the world.
