Birmingham Horror Group, 6th August 2016

For its August meeting, the Birmingham Horror Group focussed upon ‘portmanteau’ movies, from Dead of Night and Black Sabbath through Tales of Terror and Vault of Horror to Creepshow and Trick ‘r Treat. Adding their own perspective were crew and cast members from the forthcoming feature film The House of Screaming Death, in which the mysterious ‘Architect’ (played by Ian McNeice, known to genre fans for From Hell and Day of the Dead) links a series of bizarre tales set in a Midlands country house.
