The BFI is returning to the British Museum for the second year running for a spooky weekend of outdoor screenings of classic British horror movies.

The films will be shown in the museum's spectacular forecourt, complete with themed food and drink, as well as lashings of warm-blooded entertainment.

Night of the Demon will be screened on Thursday 29 August. The film sees sceptical psychologist Holden reconsidering his beliefs when a genial occultist passes him a cursed parchment at the British Museum, informing him that he will die within four days.

Hammer's bloodily beautiful reworking of Dracula will be shown on Friday 30 August, while The Mummy will be screened on Saturday 31 August. Both movies star Sir Christopher Lee and Peter Cushing.

These events will pave the way for the terrors to come in the BFI's next major season Gothic, which is launching in autumn 2013.
