Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Can we make lists of Folk Horror films and novels/short stories in this thread? 

 

The Wicker Man

Midsommar

The VVitch

A Field in England

Short stories by Algernon Blackwood, Lord Dunsany, Arthur Machen, Poe, Nathaniel Hawthorne.

That's my short list. 

 

Tell us what you know!

I love this genre, off to see Midsommar this week

The Wicker Man would be in my top 10 films OAT. The Witch was excellent, two other people I watched it with were so bored they fell asleep, but I loved it. Never seen A Field In England so thanks for reminding me as I'd forgotten about it.

I'm not sure if Kill List is Folk Horror?

have this sitting on my hd for a while but yeah by the looks of it it's a great addition to the list... 

 

btw the line between folk and cult is a bit tenuous or is just my impression? maybe not, i mean, almost every folk/horror will involve a cult but not all cult movies will be based on folklore i guess...

Sauna 2008, which is a strange one, but it's mostly good.

 

I'm sure there's a bunch more but my brain isn't working right now.

In terms of graphic novels, I recommend Wytches and Injection

My mind is bending right now to Bassaliens by Sunn O)))

Just the perfect track to a modern folk horror film. Most of their work isn't my cup of tea, but this and Altar are next level.

So I hear Haxan Cloak scored the soundtrack to Midsommar. Interesting.

Blood on Satan’s Claw and Robin Redbreast are both essential.

I'd definitely add M.R. James into the book pile, plus the '70s BBC adaptations of his stories.

Grew up a stone’s throw from Arthur Machen’s homes in Caerleon.

whenever in the area w/mates tripping many moons ago, an encounter w/Pan was always standard rib tickling and no that’s not a discreet  sheepshagging confession either
