We’re dusting down our unholy grimoires and wormy tomes in preparation for 2012’s first FRIGHTEN BRIGHTON at the Rock Inn this February.

Last year’s Frighten Brighton was a great success and this one promises to be another fun-filled, horror fuelled event – with more films, quizzes, giveaways, book signings and even a ghost story in the haunted basement.

Brighton’s very own Macabre Market will be onsite, featuring loads of stalls selling a variety of horror-themed loveliness, so please pop by to our very own House of Secrets stall to say hi! And of course, we promise to bring lots of great classic horror books for your delight and delectation!

The event starts at 12pm Saturday 25th February. Tickets are £6 for the double bill starting at 5pm – everything else, including the 2pm screening of Frankenstein and the Monster from Hell – is free!

Frankenstein

Posted on

“It proved a wet, ungenial summer, and incessant rain often confined us for days to the house… In the evenings we crowded around a blazing wood fire, and occasionally amused ourselves with some German stories of ghosts, which happened to fall into our hands. These tales excited in us a playful desire of imitation… ‘We will each write a ghost story,’ said Lord Byron; and his proposition was acceded to.”

Collier Books 1961

At this challenge Mary Shelley began work on the “ghost story” that was to  evolve into the most celebrated horror novel in literary history. Frankenstein was published the next year and became the rage of London. In generations since, the story of Victor Frankenstein and the monster he created has been read by millions all over the world. It inspired hundreds of imitations, but it has never been equalled for its masterful manipulation of the elements of horror and suspense.

You’ve read the book (haven’t you?!) now watch the film! Tomorrow, 3rd December, those lovely people behind the Classic Horror Campaign are holding an all day horror fest at the Rock Inn, Brighton, with book signings, stalls, loads of giveaways and of course some great films! We are going to be there with a few nice books so stop by and say Hi. More details below and over at: Frighten Brighton.
