In 1950s Hollywood, horror movies all but turned their back on the genre’s classic Gothic creations. Instead of Dracula and Frankenstein’s Monster came new nightmares for the modern Atomic Age – in all manner of strange shapes and sizes.
In The B-Movie Monsters That Time Forgot!, Leigh Singer explores the weird and wonderful creature features that conquered the genre more than half a century ago, and whose sense of invention, daring and sheer fun have helped keep them alive longer than anyone might have dared imagine…
This Halloween, we’ve teamed up with Islay single malt Distillery Ardbeg and their new whisky Ardbeg Wee Beastie to celebrate the golden age of the B-movie monster and give fans in London, Manchester, Edinburgh and Islay the chance to win a spine-chilling Monster Night In kit.
There’s a 10cl bottle of Wee Beastie, a bag of salted caramel popcorn, four cocktail recipe cards and a pre-mixed Beastie cocktail, plus haunting Halloween masks, an exclusive poster and a ticket that takes you to a spooky surprise.
