It seems as though Train To Busan 2: Peninsula was the only “horror” movie released in cinemas this year. And if you were hoping for more to come this month, you’ll be sorely disappointed since most films are postponed with no release dates in sight.

But not all hope is lost. ArtScience Museum has curated ArtScience On Screen, a programme screening the 1920 silent horror flick The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari and a series of short films from American filmmaker David Lynch throughout the month until 6th October 2020. Seats are limited, so pre-booking your spots with bae or your horror movie-loving BFF is highly recommended.
