The woods are nature at its most feral. The deep, dark forest is the original home of the boogeyman, long before there were dark closets and basements and that space under your bed.
The Folk Horror subgenre has gained a new audience as more young filmmakers exploit the fine line between the natural and the supernatural...and openly ask if there's a line at all.
In honor of Kier-La Janisse's fantastic and masterful documentary, "WOODLANDS DARK AND DAYS BEWITCHED: A HISTORY OF FOLK HORROR", I welcome writer/producer/author/editor/and horror journalist, KAT ELLINGER (Editor-in-Chief of Diabolique Magazine) to discuss Folk Horror, the history of Heathenism in England, and several other obsessions!
I hope you enjoy the show!
