Attention all horror lovers living in the Los Angeles area (or planning to be there in 2019)! If you’ve ever wished you could attend a wonderful school that’s all about the horror genre, your dreams can now officially become a reality. This past September, the Miskatonic Institute of Horror Studies opened its doors to knowledge lovers and horror fans alike. Now the Los Angeles institute’s upcoming line-up of events for 2019 has officially dropped, so definitely mark your calendars.

So what is the Miskatonic Institute of Horror Studies? It’s a place anyone who loves horror can go to build their knowledge of the genre while connecting with other fans and having the time of their lives. Back in September, the fun started with a rousing presentation from filmmaker Don Coscarelli on his own writing and directing experiences. Among other topics, Coscarelli shared facts, information, and stories from the sets of his most popular indie productions, including Bubba Ho-Tep and Phantasm.

After the three-hour lecture, Coscarelli also led an informative Q&A session much to the delight of the audience. Attendees hailed the presentation as informative and incredibly helpful to any creative individual who hopes to work in horror, the film industry, or both. Best of all, the whole experience only set each student back $12.00 ($15.00 if they paid at the door instead of reserving in advance). Not bad for a bona fide lecture from an industry expert!

The Miskatonic Institute of Horror Studies is, of course, named for the iconic fictional university from the H.P. Lovecraft mythos. Host of Pure Cinema, Elric Kane and All the Creatures Were Stirring co-creator Rebekah McKendry coordinate the class line-up alongside founder Kier-La Janisse. Upcoming events for 2019 include but are not limited to a detailed history of splatter-punk, a lecture from director Pete Walker, and a condensed history of made-for-TV horror.
