About ….?


My name is Cleaver Patterson. A journalist and film critic based in London, I have written about film and entertainment for a number of websites and magazines including Flickfeast,  Scream, Film International and We Belong Dead amongst others.

Having contributed to various books on film, my first solo project Don’t Go Upstairs! A Room-by-Room Tour of the House in Horror Movies was published by the American publisher McFarland in 2019. I am currently studying a Masters degree in Screenwriting, which I will finish in the Autumn of 2022. After that? Who can tell ……

I’ve created Screen & Gone to share my thoughts on and bring a new perspective to films, old and new, which you may have missed.
