Under the Skin of the Horror Genre

From Stephanie Meyer's Twilight Saga to Guillermo del Toro's haunting gothic films where the living can be more terrifying than the dead, horror has been remodeled, redefined, renewed...
Film journalist and author, Alan Jones (The Rough Guide to Horror Movies) and David McGillivray (journalist, stage and screenwriter and producer of many cult 1970's 'B' horror flicks) are at the Lighthouse in Brighton to discuss:

• the key ingredients of a good horror movie
• how tastes and styles have developed over the decades
• the masters of the genre and why they got it so right
• why horror is having a massive resurgence in literature, film and television.

6.30pm for 7pm start
At: Lighthouse, 28 Kensington St, Brighton BN1 4AJ
