News: Holy Torture at The Horse Hospital

Flavia the Heretic

On Thursday April 14th, the Horse Hospital in London plays host to the latest event from the Miskatonic Institute of Horror Studies, with the fascinating sounding Holy Torture: Desire, Cruelty, Power and Religion in 1960s-70s Cinema.

Instructor Virginie Selavy from Electric Sheep magazine will take the audience through a world of satanic possession, witch hunting and nunsploitation, from Ken Russell’s The Devils through arthouse / grindhouse Eurosleaze like Flavia The Heretic and the strange sexuality and spiritual freedoms of Juan López Moctezuma’s 1977 vampire tale Alucarda.

Tickets are £11 on the door, and it starts at 7.30. The address:

Colonnade, Bloomsbury, London WC1N 1HX
