In Dreams are Monsters

This winter, we embark on a journey into the monstrous as we celebrate horror on film. Radical and provocative, horror has provided a community for those excluded from the mainstream since the inception of cinema, forcing audiences to confront their darkest thoughts and offering a platform to marginalised voices.

As part of In Dreams are Monsters – a season of horror films in cinemas across the UK – HOME presents a selection of monster movies and special events as a decidedly, demonically alternative Christmas offering. Our line-up features international interpretations of universal horror archetypes – from beastly Hindi-language cinema to a genre-defining Spanish zombie movie – and a pair of eco-horrors which examine the terror of a vengeful mother nature.

Screening as part of In Dreams Are Monsters: A Season of Horror Films, a UK-wide film season supported by the National Lottery and BFI Film Audience Network.

Supported by the Confucius Institute at the University of Manchester.
