Event description

Description

Join author and horror expert Mark Iveson to find out more about the screen legend ahead of a film screening.

Long before Christopher Lee, there was Hungarian stage actor Bela Lugosi as the definitive Count Dracula. Unfortunately from the very first day the actor put on the cape, the king of the vampires stayed with him to the grave. Lugosi’s distinctive and sinister persona made him difficult to cast and some he regressed into inferior chillers, a situation made worse due to his morphine addiction and financial problems. The talk focuses on his overnight rise to fame that ended with appearing in some of the worst movies ever made.
