A series of free screenings in Edinburgh that explores the legacy of Frankenstein in cinema.
All screenings introduced by Edinburgh Napier's Dr Sarah Artt and Dr Emily Alder and followed by post-screening discussion.
Mel Brooks, 1978, certificate PG
Thursday 4 May, 9pm, Cameo Cinema
From the master of spoof, this is an engagingly silly take on James Whale's iconic 1931 film and features one of Gene Wilder's most iconic performances.
Eyes without a Face
Les Yeux Sans Visage, Georges Franju 1959, certificate 15
Thursday 11 May, 9pm, Cameo Cinema
In most of the most sinister appropriations of the text, Edith Scob turns in a bewitching performance as a tragic, female 'creature'.
The Skin I Live In
La piel que habito, Pedro Almodovar 2011, certificate 15
Thursday 18 May, 9pm, Cameo Cinema
A provocative and controversial film that echoes the themes of Frankenstein, as well as being openly influenced by Eyes without a Face.
