We aren't out of the woods yet...
Welcome to Episode 2.5!
This is a companion piece to Episode Two, “If You Aren’t Afraid in The Woods, You Haven’t Gone Deep Enough”, which delved into the world of Folk Horror.
Here we'll discuss movies and books I'd loved to have talked about in the episode, but they just didn’t fit into "the story" completely, or there just wasn’t enough time.
However, the campfire still has some embers left, and there's a little time before dawn. Just enough time for a few more stories.
Enter The Addendum of Doom!

S.A. Bradley’s (Incomplete and Ready-For-Debate) Additional List of Folk Horror Films and Television:
The Blair Witch Project (1999)
Rare Exports: A Christmas Tale (2010)
The Devils (1971)
Picnic at Hanging Rock (1975)

Note: Both of these are British and from the 70’s, and were made as CHILDREN’S PROGRAMMING. It’s hard to even fathom either of these being broadcast on PBS in the United States. I think it’s safe to say that Britain has a more comfortable relationship with their ancient past.
Children of the Stones (1977)
The Owl Service (1969-1970)

The door swings wide here, and all types of horror are welcome. Each episode covers some aspect of horror with lots of viewing or reading suggestions for you to check out. I want to start conversations with people about all types of horror.
