Details on the BFI Website:

Ever since Anne Rice gave the vampire a conscience in Interview with the Vampire, the Gothic myth has been reinterpreted for a new generation. Here the creative teams behind such ‘new Gothic’ works as Being Human, In the Flesh, The Fades and Buffy the Vampire Slayer are assembled to discuss the resurrection of Gothic myths on our TV screen and their vast appeal to todays generation. Illustrated with clips of these vastly successful shows and others, our panel will examine the whole ‘Cool Gothic’ phenomenon. – Marcus Prince


Damien, who played over 500 year old vampire Hal Yorke (aka Lord Harry) for 2 series of Being Human, shared his top 3 vampire movies in an interview earlier this year before the final run of the supernatural drama aired in the UK.
