Tortoise Lates: Fear

An evening of conversation, ideas and entertainment.

An evening of real and imaginary horrors in the Tortoise Studio. With terrifying ghost stories, the scariest movies and an exploration of the frightening things happening at the top of government, Tortoise Lates: Fear will give you chills…

Is Misery scarier than The Wicker Man? Is The Conjuring more frightening than the British modern classic Hellraiser – which celebrates its 35 anniversary this year? How do you measure the success of a horror film anyway? Is it the jump scare count or the nightmares it gives you afterwards? And what’s the deal with horror sequels… are they always rubbish, or are there some genuine scares to be had? With our expert panel of film critics, authors and horror fans – we decide once and for all: what’s the scariest movie of all time?
