Any successful horror story ends up with a part two. (It’s science, look it up.) And Toronto’s The Black Museum, the series of horror-based lectures and screenings curated by Paul Corupe and Andrea Subissati (pictured below), is no exception. So get ready for Round Two, because school’s back in session.
“We’re thrilled to continue this important and unique series” says Subissati of this year’s ‘sequel,’ again taking place at Big Picture Cinema on Gerrard ( formerly The Projection Booth East). “We believe this season features our most diverse offerings yet, and we hope that those who loved our first series will be excited to return.”
The Museum’s doors open on March 21, with Primate Panic: Bigfoot on Film, a look at the cinematic history of everybody’s favourite shaggy cryptid, hosted by Corupe…

Individually, Andrea Subissati and Alexandra West have each racked up an impressive hit list. Alexandra is the brains behind the horror blog Scare Tactic, as well as a contributing writer for Rue Morgue and Famous Monsters. Andrea, a frequent contributor to RM and the Rue Morgue Podcast, is also co-curator of the Black Museum lecture series here in Toronto as well as recently-appointed manager of Toronto Roller Derby’s The Gore-Gore Rollergirls…
The Black Museum, a new horror lecture series curated by Canuxploitation.com founder Paul Corupe (who also curates The Late-Night Archive in the pages of Rue Morgue) and author Andrea Subissati (When There’s No More Room In Hell: The Sociology of the Living Dead), kicks off next week at The Projection Booth – East in Toronto, and we have tickets! Two winners will each receive a pair of tickets to the lecture of their choice.

If you’re already smartly plotting your panel itinerary for this week’s Rue Morgue Festival of Fear (Thursday, August 23 to Sunday, August 26), we’ve got word of one more discussion that does not appear in the official program: THE BLACK MUSEUM PRESENTS CANADIAN HORROR REVISITED – Saturday at 2 p.m. in Room 717.
Your hosts, Paul Corupe (who RM readers will recognize as the curator of The Late-Night Archive) and author Andrea Subissati (When There’s No More Room In Hell: The Sociology of the Living Dead) are bringing their recently launched lecture series (which they discuss in depth on this week’s RM Podcast) to FoF 2012, where they will offer a glimpse at the past, present and future of Canada’s love affair with homegrown horror cinema, including the past 50 years of Canadian horror and a 30-minute panel discussion on how the past continues to inspire the next generation of Canadian horror filmmakers. With RM scribe James Burrell, RM Editor-In-Chief Dave Alexander and the Miskatonic Institute’s Kier-La Janisse.
Mark it down, tell a friend and don’t miss it!
Andrea “Hellbat” Subissati and Paul “Canuxploitation” Corupe return to school us on The Black Museum. Partly inspired by The Miskatonic Institute of Horror Studies in Montreal, The Black Museum is a lecture series exclusively devoted to the advanced study of Horror Films. It’s kicking off this fall in Toronto at The Projection Booth East.

Last year, I subjected myself to a very strange cine-masochistic exercise by viddying George Sluizer’s haunting masterpiece THE VANISHING (1988) immediately followed by the director’s own 1993 Hollywood REMAKE.
It’s not a viddying experience I would quickly recommend. It was a disorienting and painful misadventure to travel from one extreme end of the cinematic spectrum to another, from divine inspiration to infernal desperation, from cinema as a dark art to cinema as a dog’s fart.
So on this episode of the RUE MORGUE PODCAST we try to dissect the implications of both versions and attempt to come to terms with the forces of evil that could’ve allowed such a cinematic travesty to have unfolded in our lifetime.
Andrea Subissati (a.k.a. Hellbat), author of When There’s No More Room In Hell: The Sociology of the Living Dead returns to the podcast for this treacherous voyage into the nether regions of cinephobic agony.
This week on the podcast, the lovely Andrea Subissati joins me for a bit of an old school, ‘compare and contrast’ exercise.
In one corner, we have Meir Zarchi’s controversial 1978 classic I SPIT ON YOUR GRAVE. In the other, it’s Steven R. Monroe’s 2010 remake.
Which one will emerge victorious (or at least reasonably unscathed?) Tune in to find out!
