It’s a Scream at Clotworthy House

With Halloween just around the corner, horror is taking over the normally serene environs of the Oriel Gallery at Antrim Castle Gardens with the arrival of Scream and Scream Again.

This exhibition of rare horror movie posters, curated by Abertoir Horror Festival, opens on October 22 and runs until November 19.

The 1950s to the 1970s saw a dramatic change in British horror, somewhat different to horror as we know it today.

Casually referred to as horror’s golden age, the period saw actors such as Christopher Lee and Peter Cushing become household names, while the British horror film studio became a major influence worldwide.

From the early gothic style to the infiltration of pop culture in the 1970s, this exhibition takes a look at films from this period and how they were marketed abroad through a collection of rare original international movie posters and lobby cards from around the world.
