The Frighteners by Peter Laws

Meet the Baptist Minister who explains why we love being scared by all things that go bump in the night. With a penchant for the macabre Peter’s best-selling book The Frighteners examines the history of our fascination with all things spooky, morbid and downright repellent.

Peter Laws is the author of crime fiction novels Purged and Unleashed (Allison & Busby, 2017) and is an ordained Baptist Minister. He writes a monthly horror movie column for the Fortean Times and hosts the popular podcast/YouTube show The  Flicks That Church Forgot, exploring the deeper and sometimes spiritual themes of morbid culture. He is a regular public speaker and lives in Bedfordshire.

Suitable for ages 14+
