Trivia

The decision was to make the film in Ballarat, in the Australian state of Victoria, because it is known to have low lying fog in the mornings. Of course, when filming actually started, there was no fog to be seen at all. See more »

Hammer House of Horror Fun
21 November 2010 | by See all my reviews

I saw Damned by Dawn on DVD and thought it was a fun horror film and shows what can be achieved by a group of film makers with a great deal of get up and go.

Some of the other user reviews here are mean in my opinion. This is clearly a labor of love by a group of film makers who really don't deserve a beat up for wanting to make films like their Hammer House of Horror heroes - which they achieve wonderfully here with all the spooky atmosphere you'd expect.

I think Indie film makers in particular will enjoy watching what has been achieved. Watch the behind the scenes, it's fantastic and shows what a fun time making the film must have been.
