Hell-Tor Film Festival
Thu 01 Jan 1970
Take a vivid tour through the history of the gothic with Associate Professor and author Dr Corinna Wagner and learn how the South West became a romantic map of the dark and fantastic.
A new festival celebrating Dartmoors rich history of ghosts, ghouls and witchcraft. The inaugural Hell-Tor film festival will present a weekend of Gothic horror with films, talks and readings inspired by the folklore of the moor.
Hell-Tor is a mixture of classic horror features, shorts, lectures and opportunities to hear renowned genre directors, authors and actors talk openly of their own love of the genre and the regions legacy. Its time for horror to come home.
