A celebration of gothic film and TV across the UK.
Tales of gothic horror and romance feed on our darkest fears and desires. Over the coming months, this nationwide season lifts the lid on a dark storehouse of the imagination, which found its heart in Britain, and came to life on film.
Cinema of nightmarish intensity, uncanny vision and monstrous imagination.
Visit the dark side at QFT and across Northern Ireland over the winter months.
Explore the themes of ‘monstrous’, ‘the dark arts’, ‘haunted’ and ‘love is the devil’ at GFT this winter.
