Horror Hangout Bonus Episode : Interview with I Am Monsters Star Nicholas Vince (FrightFest 2023)

Ben Errington is joined by I Am Monsters star Nicholas Vince to discuss the film which had its world premiere at FrightFest last month!

Actor/director Nicholas Vince is one of the UK's shining beacons in the queer horror scene. Most well-known for his debut role as the Chatterer in Clive Barker's Hellraiser, and Kinski (Moon Face) in the cult shocker Nightbreed.

Both a resoundingly nostalgic and relatable tale of growing up in love with horror, and an essential discourse on the turmoil of 'growing up gay' under draconian Thatcherian rule where the closet was always safest, ‘I Am Monsters’ is the documentary adaptation of the autobiographical one-man- stage show.
