The Dark Side is a UK magazine covering the field of horror cinema. It generally offers a mix of reviews of new releases and interviews with directors and actors. Launched in 1990 it was edited by Allan Bryce. Originally owned by part of Robert Maxwell's publishing empire, it was later bought by Stray Cat Publishing, in which Bryce was a partner. It also has its own DVD and book imprint.
The magazine ceased publication in September 2009, but was re-launched under Ghoulish Publishing a year and a half later, going on sale on a bi-monthly basis from 21 April 2011 (it originally came out on the 4th Thursday of each month).
