Gothic (1986) - Novocastria Macabre film screening
"IT'S ALIVE!" 200 years after the night that changed horror forever, Novocastria Macabre present a very special screening of Ken Russell's GOTHIC in the Great Hall of Newcastle Castle Keep.

The year is 1816 and poets Byron and Shelley, Byron's doctor Polidori and Shelley's mistress Mary Godwin (later to become his wife) gather in a villa on Lake Geneva and dare each other to write ghost stories. The results, Polidori's 'The Vampire' and Mary Shelley's 'Frankenstein', become the foundations of the horror genre. In Ken Russell's recreation of that fateful night, the young Romantics hold a demonic séance and descend into a sex and opium-fuelled nightmare world.

In association with Screen Demons Horror Film Festival, screenwriter Stephen Volk of the film (Ghostwatch, Afterlife, Awakening) and David Pirie (author of A Heritage Of Horror, The Vampire Cinema, Murder Rooms) will be in attendance to talk about the film.

** Please note: This screening will take place in the Great Hall of Newcastle Castle Keep, which is unfortunately inaccessible to wheelchair users. There is no heating inside the Great Hall, so please wear suitable clothing. **

Film rating: 18. Newcastle Castle reserves the right to deny entry to ticket holders who do not possess appropriate photographic ID.
