Modern Cinema: Haunted! Gothic Tales by Women


As fog enshrouds the city, the summer is the perfect time to become immersed in films based on gothic tales written by women. This season, Modern Cinema features gothic classics adapted to film from Wuthering Heights and Frankenstein to The Haunting. Also featuring fresh takes on gothic storytelling in films that push or upset the conventions of the genre such as The Babadook and A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night. Eerie, atmospheric and always dark in tone, the gothic haunts the imagination with moody landscapes, brooding architecture, and unforgettable characters.
