Experience terror at Dead By Dawn – Edinburgh’s festival of horror…

Horror as a rule is a much maligned and underappreciated genre – when they are handing out the big awards and the cultural kudos, horror seems to be the weirdo in the corner that no-one pays much attention to whilst the latest piece of “serious” drama garners all the acclaim. However, the best horror films don’t need the validation of critics and the film industry as they are more than capable of haunting our cultural consciousness and what better place to do this than from the edge of things, in the shadows?

All the same, it is great to see the return of the annual Dead by Dawn horror festival to Edinburgh this year after it took a break in 2010. The festival, which began in 1993, will be back at Edinburgh Filmhouse from the 5th – 8th May 2011 to terrify audiences. You can see the programme of events by visiting their official site. The festival will have some big main features, as well as a variety of short films. Don’t be fooled into thinking this is just a festival for gorehounds – there will be psychological horror, and all kinds of downright weird shorts.
