Tomorrow morning I will be delivering a lecture for students taking Dr Helen Wheatley's HORROR AND THE GOTHIC module. The lecture draws on research published in my book, Contemporary British Horror Cinema, and will address why distributors increasingly opt for "direct-to-home-media" releases than theatrical runs.
The lecture is then proceeded by a screening of Salvage, a film that was only in cinemas for 3 days before appearing on all home media formats.
