Two of my favourite british horrors are The Satanic Rites of Dracula and Deathline (I used to travel past the tube station where the mutants lived everyday while going to work and would quite often look out for the secret turnnels they hid in, unfortunatly with no luck ).

Also have a big soft spot for Quatermass and the Pit

Which station did they film Deathline in again? Quatermass and the Pit is so creepy - for atmosphere you can't beat it and I'm glad the likes of Doctor Who is back but that never exudes the creepiness that British productions were so good for.

Its set around Russle Square and Holburn although the Mutants actually live on a fictional uncompleted line at a non existant statin called Museum.

Oh and aparantly some of it was filmed at Aldwych

Ah I thought it might be Russell Square but got confused with An American Werewolf in London

American Werewolf was Tottenham Court Road station.

"The Wicker Man" for me, not the least because it reminds me of the joy of stumbling over films you've only read about before..as "The Wicker Man" has been a rather obscure title outside the UK until the not exactly loved & cherished US remake
Beautiful shot one-of-a-kind movie experience with one of THE most haunting finales ever. What more could I possibly need?

Of the recent Brit horrors, "Eden Lake" and "The Children" are certainly in battle over the top position.

It seems to divide people but I quite enjoyed The Descent.

Well, as for the "dividing" part, that seems to be the common fandom phenomenon with "new horror"....

I've only watched it once so far and thought it was pretty good at the time.

I really have to revisit this before the sequel arrives.

Mum and Dad and The Children are both (IMO) good examples of recent Brit horror. We Brits still have it in us to make decent, shocking horror movies. The Cottage wasn't half bad either.

And yes, in answer to a poster above, I do consider Hellraiser to be pretty much British, in spite of American redubs.
