Spirits of Horror
Horror cinema can be a lot like a cocktail menu. You’re likely to find a blend of familiar old classics and exotic new experiences with obscure ingredients and intimidating names. Some people revel in it, others save it for special occasions. Some suppress memories of bad past experiences, and many are convinced it’s just not for them — until they find the right concoction.
Join Alix and Mike at their humble bar who welcomes horror fans both old and new. Each week, we'll feature handcrafted cocktails, haunting films and compelling conversations.
