Horror and Hilarity
Take a journey with Prof. Richard J. Hand into the seedy backstreets of Paris and discover the Théâtre du Grand-Guignol, a venue staging blood-curdling horror and comedy every night from 1897-1962.
Gaining a legendary reputation as the ‘Theatre of Horror’, the story goes that a resident doctor was employed to treat spectators who fainted each night!
Although the original theatres have closed, the legacy of the Grand-Guignol is truly alive (or should we say undead?) and is still to be found in horror movies today.
