Essential Experiments: Gothic Deconstructions | BFI Southbank | BFI | British Film Institute

This inventive pair of found footage films take the stuff of Gothic cinema and transform it into new, strange and sinister forms. Tscherkassky’s mutilation of a 1981 Barbara Hershey horror provides an unsettling prelude to Pfaffenbichler’s latest feature, a meticulously crafted collage of the performances of Boris Karloff in which the protagonist encounters versions of himself again and again, in a dizzying array of forms.
