Dead by Dawn


Dead by Dawn is the UK’s longest running horror film festival, happily ensconced at the wonderful Filmhouse since the very beginning in 1993.

The festival returns in April for it’s 25th Anniversary with a tantalising selection of independent previews, amazing classics and extensive short film programmes stuffed full of spectacular treats.

Once you factor in our brilliant special guests, our legendary Shit Film Amnesty and Punk Pass the Parcel, we can absolutely guarantee that you’re in for the best time possible!

The 2018 festival will run 19 – 22 April.

A full festival Pass costs £90 and these are on sale from Filmhouse from Thursday October 26th.

All screenings take place in Cinema One at Filmhouse.

Announcements about the line-up will start appearing soon and they’ll be here, to our mailing list, on our Facebook page and through our Twitter feed.

If you’d like an idea of the kind of films you can expect, please check out our Past Festivals page.

If time, stamina or cash are an issue, you can instead buy individual tickets for all screenings at Dead by Dawn. These are sold at regular Filmhouse prices and will go on sale in March.

Please note that Dead by Dawn is an over-18s only event, and that Passes are non-refundable.

If you have any questions at all, please just get in touch.
