Everyone likes a spooky story at Christmas time, so here’s a great little documentary about the haunted castles of Wales. Perhaps a little cheesy in places, and a little dated in others, it still has some great stories and its narrated by the great Robert Hardy. So pull the curtains closed, light a candle and get ready for a scare…

The Best Horror Films to Come Out of Wales

What are the best horror films to come out of Wales? Wales Arts Review is nominating ten chilling, thrilling movies, not just those set in the creepy hinterlands, or the wilds of the Welsh gothic, but those that carry with them something of the Welsh sensibility that made them. Here is a far from definitive list of films to check out, if you don’t already know them, this Halloween.


Wales Arts Review works to bring our readers the best critical writing from Wales, and the best critical writing about Wales. It is a place where passionate and informed arts critics, from Wales and beyond, can find expression. Our writers are neither drum-beaters nor axe-grinders but simply knowledgeable and dedicated people who care deeply about culture and society.

Founded in March 2012, Wales Arts Review is a media platform where a new generation of critics and arts lovers can meet to engage in a robust and inclusive discussion about books, theatre, film, music, the visual arts, politics, and the media.

Wales Arts Review commissions and publishes content in the English language, yet it proudly acknowledges that Wales is a bilingual nation with a richly diverse bilingual culture. We therefore do not restrict our focus to arts and literature delivered only in the medium of English. We have published reviews and articles examining works by Welsh language artists and companies; from the work of Theatre Genedlaethol Cymru to TV hit crime-thriller Y Gwyll. We have also covered the National Eisteddfod and were proud to announce that the winner of our 2014 ‘Greatest Welsh Novel’ prize was Caradog Prichard’s Un Nos Ola LeaudWales Arts Review looks forward to working with partner organisations on future projects that critically evaluate and celebrate all the languages of Wales.

We believe that a vibrant arts scene is the expression of a confident, healthy and creative society. We further assert that a flourishing and vigorous critical culture is vital to its sustenance and development. As such, we regard Wales Arts Review as an important building-block in the new outward-looking, forward-thinking Wales.
