The Baron’s Halloween Top 20

Halloween is the perfect night to draw the curtains, dim the lights and watch your horror movie of choice in glorious HD goriness. The Baron has selected a suitable Top 20 list of monocle-dropping thrillers and chillers, all of which feature production or post-production work from Twickenham Film Studios. TW1 Studios, as they are known today, are The Baron’s most famous neighbours. Turn left out of the front door, and they are a minute’s walk away, or 20 seconds if you’re a runner. Founded in 1913 on the site of the old ice-rink, the sound stages have played a long and glorious role in the history of cinema. In the 1960s, key productions included Saturday Night and Sunday Morning, Alfie, The Italian Job and A Hard Day’s Night. For a hair-raising Halloween night in, The Baron’s personal selection is Repulsion, the first in Roman Polanski’s apartment trilogy.
