Black Decagon's regular Folk Horror Cinema Club returns with a screening of a brand new 4K digital restoration of John Moxey's creepily atmospheric, The City of the Dead. Beautifully photographed by Desmond Dickinson and starring horror legend Christopher Lee as the occult expert Professor Driscoll from Whitewood, a small New England Village famed for it's brutal history of devil worship and human sacrifice, but have these occult practices been confined to the past? This screening will be introduced by the actor and film historian Jonathan Rigby; author of the brilliant Studies in Terror and consultant on BBC Four's A History Horror with Mark Gatiss.
