We are delighted to welcome to Paracinema, Screenwriter and Author Stephen Volk. Stephen made his feature screenwriting debut with the Ken Russell directed Gothic (1986) and has gone to create the stellar Afterlife (2005), to adapt Midwinter Of The Spirit (2015) and, of course, write the infamous Ghostwatch (1992) the television event that tricked and terrified a nation.
As well as the film and television work, Stephen has written numerous novels, novellas and short stories including contributing to last year’s excellent Studio Of Screams which was a portmanteau novel in the vein of the Amicus films of the 1960s and 1970s. His latest book Under A Raven’s Wing explores the early life of Sherlock Holmes and his meeting with C. Auguste Dupin (Edgar Allan Poe’s legendary detective).
Join us for a Q&A with Stephen followed by a 35th Anniversary screening of Gothic.
Tickets: £12 (standard), £10 concessions & QUAD members - Includes screening of Gothic.
