This year Day of the Dead sees the return of some of the festival’s favourite genre directors. Alex de Iglesia terrorises us with his new paranoid thriller The Bar, while Xavier Gens delivers a warning about messing with creatures from the deep. The Endless sees Justin Benson and Aaron Moorhead follow up their monstrous love story Spring, with an astounding Lovecraftian nightmare about two brothers revisiting the cult they escaped from as children. Opening the event is Veronica, Spain’s answer to The Conjuring, based on a real-life possession and in the Dark Owls Competition you get to vote for your favourite short film.

The line-up for Day of the Dead is as follows:

11:00 Veronica

13:30 The Bar

15:45 Dark Owls International Short Fantasy Film Competition

18:15 Cold Skin

20:30 The Endless
