British Film Forever (2007) – Magic, Murder & Monsters: The Story of British Horror & Fantasy 1/6

In this episode, attention is turned to films that have made us scream and howl over the years – occasionally with laughter as well as fright. With such a rich gothic literary tradition it was somehow inevitable that British filmmakers would make our horror the envy of the world. From Hammer to Harry Potter, from Plague of the Zombies to Shaun of the Dead, the programme traces the evolution of the British horror and fantasy film.
