Craig Johnson, Ghost Stories for Christmas

Craig Johnson

Craig Johnson’s earliest memory of horror cinema was watching Universal’s Frankenstein Meets the Wolfman on BBC2 with his father in the 1970s; a film which ignited an abiding love of the genre that lasts to this day.

A self-confessed horror addict, encompassing both cinema and literature, he cites Val Lewton, Mario Bava, Ramsey Campbell and Thomas Ligotti among his influences.

After studying theatre at Brunel University, Craig founded The Pandemonium Circus Theatre Company, which staged productions on the London fringe. After taking a break from the arts he returned in 2013 as creator and producer of the annual Ghost Stories for Christmas charity fundraiser in Brighton. 

Alongside with his friend and frequent collaborator John Paul Fitch, Craig co-hosts  the soon to be launched "Horror Double Bill'  podcast. This is his eighth year of producing and performing Ghost Stories for Christmas.
