Dundead

Dundee's dedicated horror film festival

Dundead is our annual horror and cult film festival that takes place over four days in May. Running since 2011, the festival brings together a mix of previews and premieres of brand new genre titles as well as specially selected horror classics. 

The horror continues throughout the year with monthly Dundead screenings as part of the regular cinema programme and a curated programme of screenings in October to celebrate Halloween. 

Dundead is a highlight of living in Dundee. Long may it continue!
