Holy Terrors


Arthur Machen


Holy Terrors is a collection of six short stories by Arthur Machen that feature in a portmanteau film made by Mark Goodall and Julian Butler, shot on location in Whitby, North Yorkshire. It is published in association with Obsolete Films.


Contains: ‘The Cosy Room’, ‘The White Powder’, ‘The Bowmen’, ‘Ritual’, ‘The Happy Children’, ‘Midsummer’, ‘Afterword’, ‘The Friends of Arthur Machen’.


Arthur Machen (1863-1947) was a Welsh author and mystic, best known for his influential horror fiction. Stephen King called his novella, The Great God Pan, ‘Maybe the best [horror story] in the English language’. However, Machen’s work is mainly of a mystical cast, often influenced by his own mix of High Church Anglicanism and a belief in an old Welsh Church that predated modern Christianity. His writing has influenced writers as diverse as H.P. Lovecraft and John Betjeman.
