Welsh writer, Arthur Machen, was a true master of the macabre, sometimes seen as Britain’s answer to HP Lovecraft, but he remains relatively unknown. New film Holy Terrors, featuring four of Machen’s finest supernatural stories, aims to redress this neglect.
Set in Victorian and Edwardian England, the stories of deadly ritual, wartime ghosts, drugs, crime and murder retain their chilling quality to the present day.
Following a screening of the film, suitable for ages 15+, our expert panel will discuss Arthur Machen’s life and work, restoring one of the greats to our literary canon.
Join Machen experts, Mark Valentine, Ray Russell and Gail-Nina Anderson, along with filmmaker, Mark Goodall, to discover your new favourite horror writer!
