All are very welcome to join us for a Christmas Screening and discussion session on Tuesday the 10th of December, 4-8pm, in Jarman.
We will be screening The Bat Whispers (1930, Roland West) and Night of the Demon (1957, Jacques Tourneur). We have previously screened the former at Halloween (https://blogs.kent.ac.uk/melodramaresearchgroup/2018/11/08/summary-of-discussion-on-the-bat-whispers/) Night of the Demon seems especially appropriate, however, for the season. (I have indeed Christmassifed the images from the films to make both seem more festive!) Night of the Demon is an adaption of MR James’ short story ‘The Casting of the Runes’. We screened a TV adaption of James’ ghost story ‘Number 13’ two years ago:
Do join us if you can.
