Woodlands Dark and Days Bewitched: A History of Folk Horror (2021, dir. Kier-La Janisse)

A history – and a geography – of this mode of storytelling in film and television. More folk than horror, this overlong documentary is somewhat unfocused (depth is sacrificed for breadth), but nevertheless interesting. Feels like a TV series re-edited without titles: something to dip into rather than watch in one go. Worth your time though.

Here’s the trailer.
