Next Up: DIRECTOR JOHN HOUGH IN CONVERSATION – February 11, 2016

From 60s TV series THE AVENGERS and salacious Hammer Horror TWINS OF EVIL to 70s gearhead staple DIRTY MARY, CRAZY LARRY and children’s classics ESCAPE TO WITCH MOUNTAIN and THE WATCHER IN THE WOODS, British filmmaker John Hough has had an eclectic and storied career behind the camera. He considers himself a craftsman rather than an auteur, but is responsible for some of the most beloved films in horror history – most notably his 1973 adaptation of Richard Matheson’s novel HELL HOUSE.

In this special instalment of LIVE FROM MISKATONIC, Hough will participate in a lengthy on-stage conversation with our guest interviewer Justin Harries, the curator of London’s popular FILMBAR70. The conversation will cover Hough’s early television career, his work with Hammer Films and Disney, his interactions with 1970s renegade Hollywood and his work with screen giants such as Orson Welles, Roddy McDowell, John Cassavetes, Max Von Sydow, Sophia Loren, Rod Steiger and so many more. The talk will be punctuated by film clips and there will be a Q+A period following the formal discussion.

Thursday February 11th, 2016 – 7pm-10pm
at the Horse Hospital – Colonnade, Bloomsbury

Please note there will be no admission after the lecture has started at 7.30pm.

Special thanks to Paul Hough.
