What makes a monster? And why are we so obsessed with cinematic stories about them?

Dive deep with two classic creature features released decades apart: Jack Arnold’s Creature From The Black Lagoon (1954) and Guillermo Del Toro’s The Shape Of Water (2017). From a Universal monster movie in glorious 3D to a Best Picture Oscar-winner, the journey of the other and those who are otherised is explored through the lens of filmmakers obsessed with the underdog.

Screenings feature exclusive interviews with author Mallory O’Meara about monster maker Milicent Patrick's groundbreaking work on Creature From The Black Lagoon, and Shape Of Water’s famous fish man, Doug Jones, who has made a career out of playing misunderstood monsters for the past thirty years.

– Maria Lewis, Assistant Curator
