All the new British horror films released in 2019

Here are the 90 British horror features that I know have been released in 2019. As usual, there's probably about 10 or so that I haven't discovered yet.

This is the last year that I will publish thas list. As previously explained, I'm packing in my exhaustive and exhausting research into new British horror to concentrate on publishing my multi-volume encyclopaedia of UK horror films 2000-2019 (and other books).

I'm still hoping somebody will step forward to continue this work in the 2020s. If no-one does, then future cinema historians, looking back from a few decades hence, will find a bizarre sudden drop-off in information about the genre after 2019, because this stuff can't be researched retrospectively.

A spread from my book

Here is a spread from my snappily titled forthcoming book, 21st Century British Horror Films Vol.1: Dog Soldiers and Doghouses (2000-2011).

It will be about 180 A4 pages, documenting 316 films released over that 12 year period.

And some sample entries:
