Germany after Dark

International Horror Film Festival.


There are huge numbers of C horror movies out there that we are not interested in. We do not report on these productions or make information available about them. We have a goal to accomplish: the very first Germany After Dark Festival, here, in Germany.

Until now there has never been a comparable film festival in Germany dealing with the horror genre of the movie industry. We are looking for the best, most thrilling, most exciting, most dramatic, subtlest, funniest and simply riveting horror movies. As opposed to other film festivals, only the audience decides the winners of the contest.
