Specials
Imagine someone walking into your house, studio or simply, your room. That someone believes it is okay to take some of your belongings and keep them around 5000 km away from you. Now let’s reflect.

British horror films are known to break genre boundaries. In 1973 The Wicker Man shocked audiences with an eerily unsettling horror set in broad daylight. Before that, in 1960 Peeping Tom was one of Britain’s first glimpses at the now famed slasher. Although It is tricky to pin point when horror films first made a splash in Britain, they can be dated back to as the early 1900’s with films like The Doll’s Revenge (1907) which started a horror trend that still dominates the genre. Today, Tomas Alfredson’s Nordic-noir nightmare The Snowman arrives in cinemas. But the fi
