Interested in the dark fantasy fiction of such writers as MR James, Shirley Jackson and Stephen King? Or perhaps the horror films of George Romero, Sam Raimi and Guillermo del Toro? From Bride of Frankenstein to It Follows, The Haunting of Hill House to The Books of Blood, The Twilight Zone to Ash vs Evil Dead, the Birmingham Horror Group offers a relaxed forum for all fans of the genre to meet and discuss their favourite writers, artists and film-makers, with occasional special guest appearances from leading creators.
You can read more about our activities at the Group's website.
December 2016 marks the centenary of the birth of Shirley Jackson, among the most innovative and influential of modern horror writers. We'll be celebrating her novels (The Haunting of Hill House and We Have Always Lived in the Castle to name just two), short fiction (such as 'The Lottery', which caused a massive controversy when first published). There may even be a movie in the mix.
