We’re almost half-way through British Horror Month so we thought we’d take a look at a sub-genre the Brits really excelled at – the horror omnibus film. The first major production of multi-story British horror was the seminal classic Dead of Night in 1945 by the legendary Ealing Studios. This was followed up in the sixties by Amicus Productions’ Dr Terror’s House of Horrors (1964) who then went on to become┬ásynonymous with the horror anthology genre through the seventies concluding their run with 1980′s The Monster Club.

Now it’s your turn to vote for your favourite classic British horror omnibus film! Don’t be fooled by some of the seventies titles as they’re not all Amicus – can you identify the non-Amicus productions? As usual, give us a shout if we’ve missed any out but remember we’re not including anything after 1980.


As part of British Horror Month we wanted to cover classic horror on television just as much as all the iconic British horror movies so here’s your chance to vote for the best British classic horror TV show! We’ve tried to include all the major series, serials and one-offs from the early days of television up until 1980 but please comment below and let us know if we’ve made any major omissions!

Don’t forget to send us your tweets @horrorcampaign telling us your favourite British horror TV shows using the hashtags #BritishHorrorMonth and #HorrorUK – and feel free to post about British television horror over on the Rue Morgue UK Facebook page – once the page has received 500 “likes” one lucky winner could win a one-year digital subscription to the world’s biggest selling horror magazine Rue Morgue!
