In October 2013, the British Film Institute unveiled an exhibition chronicling the history of dark and macabre films. In an ambitious project, the BFI unveiled a collection of a large number of films spanning four categories, bringing these films to British cinemas over a four month period.

Films are arranged chronologically by theme.

The Four Parts:
- Monstrous (1-26)
- The Dark Arts (27-48)
- Haunted (49-71)
- Love is a Devil (72-99)

Although this exhibition includes a large number of plays, professional talks, documentaries, television series' and shorts, this list contains only the feature films presented in the exhibition.
