Total runtime 108min

Celebrate BFI Flipside’s second scintillating collection of strange, spooky British films lovingly remastered in 2K resolution from rare original archive materials. ‘The Politician who reached beyond the Grave for the Power of Hell’ emerges in The Face of Darkness (Ian F H Lloyd, 1976); a mysterious phone call provokes a knife-edge night of horror in The Dumb Waiter (Dir Robert Bierman, 1979); and The Mark of Lilith (Dirs Polly Gladwin, Zachary Mack-Nataf, Bruna Fionda, 1986) dismantles the traditional image of the vampire when Black lesbian filmmaker Zena encounters Lillia, a white, undead wraith.

The two-disc Blu-ray of Short Sharp Shocks II is available to buy from 25 October.
