With all the 'nu-horror' and remakes these days British horror, both classic and recent tends to get overlooked. So what are everyone's favourite British horror films, and why?
How foolish of me, obviously the thread did exist!

As for British horror's I am a firm fan of the classics....

My personal faves are:

- The Abominable Dr Phibes
- And Soon the Darkness
- The Brides of Dracula
- The Curse of Frankenstein
- The Devil Rides Out
- The Devils
- Don't Look Now
- Dracula Has Risen From the Grave
- Frankenstein Created Woman
- Horror of Dracula
- The House That Dripped Blood
- The Innocents
- Inseminoid
- Killer's Moon
- The Mummy (1959)
- Night of the Eagle
- Prey
- Repulsion
- The Revenge of Frankenstein
- Satan's Slave
- Schizo
- Terror
- The Wicker Man

As you can see by my choices I'm a huge Norman J. Warren and Hammer (particularly Terence Fisher) nut! I do love a bit of classic Brit-Horror!

Where's Xtro?

In the absence of a voting choice for Dracula Has Risen from the Grave I went with Witchfinder General - a fine performance from Price and superb direction by Reeves. An absolute classic.

I still enjoy Xtro. The UK DVD seems to be missing a few brief scenes that are in the old video versions.

And of course what yuletide is complete without Don't Open Till Christmas?

The German edition's complete mate.
The alternative ending is far better than the one one used in cinemas.

Yep it's an amazing film. After noticing the headlines announcing the mysterious killings of 3 Santa's........

Edmund Purdom takes a lot of stick.The guy's an unsung genius.
Santa's being mutilated-outrageous.

Am I right in saying this was the first Santa-slasher?

Purdom also popped up in Pieces and Absurd. A far cry from his Hollywood years in The Student Prince and The Egyptian.

Caroline Munro's funky disco number always cracks me up.
