Glasgow Short Film Festival presents "The Sum Of All Fears", which will be taking place 18th March as part of the Festival.
The event - curated and introduced by Christoffer Olofsson, Programme Director of Uppsala International Short Film Festival, Sweden- is a collection of rare 16mm condensed versions of classic Universal horror features. Produced in the 1960s, these single reel abridgements allowed anyone to build their own movie collection... until home video came along. Not just a curiosity in film history, these films arguably improve on their originals, as avant-garde re-workings of The Doom of Dracula, The Mummy and Frenzy. Screening in stuttering and fluttering 16mm, these films are being shown as they should be seen.
The 16mm mini-masterpieces being screened include:
The Wolf Man | George Waggner | USA | 1941 | 9 min
Frankenstein’s Son | Rowland V Lee | USA | 1939 | 10 min
The Doom of Dracula | Erle C Kenton | USA | 1944 | 9 min
Tarantula! | Jack Arnold | USA | 1955 | 9min
The Creature From the Black Lagoon | Jack Arnold | USA | 1954 | 9 min&n
The Mummy | Karl Freund | USA | 1932 | 17
Frenzy | Alfred Hitchcock | USA | 1972 | 9 min
