Meet British horror director Pete Walker

Seventies horror movie director Pete Walker is appearing for a Q & A session at London's BFI SouthBank on March 12th. You'll also get a chance to see one of his best films, Frightmare, which introduced psycho driller-killing years before Abel Ferrara.

Afterwards, there's a rare chance to see his last film, the not-on-DVD House of the Long Shadows, which teamed veteran horror stars Christopher Lee, Peter Cushing, Vincent Price and John Carradine with Walker's own discovery Sheila Keith.

So why not revisit Pete Walker's House of Whipcord, The Comeback and Schizo, so you've got some keen questions for him...

More details about the event and screenings here on the BFI website.


  1. where can I get a poster for House of the Long Shadows?

  2. You're best bet for posters like this is from The Cinema Store on Upper St Martins Lane in Central London. The above picture is the VHS cover, which isn't very big.
