The Miskatonic Institute Of Horror Studies London

Dates: 22 September, 13 October, 10 November, 8 December

Time: 7-10pm

Venue: Horse Hospital

Address: Colonnade, Bloomsbury, London WC1N 1JD

The Miskatonic Institute of Horror Studies - London returns to the Horse Hospital for another semester of film and pop culture classes, with a 2016 fall line-up led by some of the genre world's most renowned critical luminaries. Mark Pilkington (Owner of Strange Attractor Press, writer/director of MIRAGE MEN) launches the season in September with his lecture Rituals in the Dark: Evoking Magic on Film. From the grit of medieval grimoires and spellcraft to the spiritual liberation of mid-twentieth century witchcraft, this lecture will look at a number of representations of magic on film, from the silent era, through Expressionism, B-movies, the avant garde and into the mainstream. He will be followed in October by visiting instructor Daniel Bird, whose studies in Poland led to his becoming the pre-eminent biographer of both Walerian Borowczyk and Andrzej Zulawski. In Vulgar Structures; or Andrzej Zulawski's Love Triangles, he will use his intimate knowledge of the late Zulawski's work to look at the love triangle fundamental to all of Zulawski's films, and to square it with this remarkable director's life and loves. In November, Warwick University scholar Catherine Lester will present Little Terrors: Children's Horror on Film and Television. This class will explore in detail the area of horror films and television programmes created specifically for children in the UK and the US, with an emphasis on programming from the 70s and 80s. And to close the season, the Horse Hospital turns into The Black Lodge when acclaimed horror author Maura McHugh visits from Ireland to bring us Working the Blue Rose Case: Signs, Codes, and Mysteries in David Lynch's FIRE WALK WITH ME.

Working The Blue Rose Case: Signs, Codes, And Mysteries In David Lynch's Fire Walk With Me

FIRE WALK WITH ME (1992, directed by David Lynch and co-written with Robert Engels) was created to address unanswered questions in the seminal TV series TWIN PEAKS (1990-91), but instead it offered more puzzles and dream narratives to confound viewers. Its premiere in Cannes was met with boos and jeers from the audience, but over the years critical opinion of this challenging film has matured and developed. Maura McHugh will explore the symbols and themes that underpin FIRE WALK WITH ME and TWIN PEAKS, and will offer you a refresher course in its characters and strange happenings in advance of the new series of TWIN PEAKS, which will materialise in 2017.
