“I shall never permit anything bearing my signature to be banalised and vulgarised into the flat, infantile twaddle which passes for ‘horror tales’ amongst radio and cinema audiences.”
- HP Lovecraft to the poet Richard Morse
To close our series of Lovecraftian and Cosmic Horror films we will be screening Blair Erickson's Banshee Chapter. Where the thematic elements of cosmic horror can be inferred on films like Event Horizon other films build their narratives upon Lovecraft's themes of cosmic indifferentism and cosmic horror, films such as Banshee Chapter.
A reporter is investigating a group of people experimenting with the drug DMT-19, the drug synonmous with Project MKUltra (a CIA mind control program), open themselves up to horrors lurking just outside of reality. Mixing cosmic horror and conspiracy theories Banshee Chapter will close the Lovecraftian series. Next up, our Halloween screenings...
We look forward to seeing you all on the night..
Bob, David, Mel & Adam
