British Horror films - in year order

Thanks to Darrell Buxton (an expert), I now present you with an official, accurate, and exhaustive guide to every British horror film made. Gaze in wonder at just how bloody many of them there have been.

Darrell runs Pass The Marmalade, the only other site devoted to British horror films worth looking at. Thanks, Darrell!

Anyway, here's the list. Still got a way to go, haven't I? Notice how the list gets redder as we move towards the 70s, and then fades as we approach the Millenium...

Films in caps are shorts.
