Wyrd Britain

A collection of folk, horror and folk-horror film and TV (with a dash of sci-fi, fantasy, paranoid thriller and urban wyrd), located in the British Isles. Magic, myth, monsters, madness, music, demons, curses, witches, war, pestilence, paganism, possession, phantoms, runes, revenants and rituals.

Inspired by Adam Scovell's excellent book "Folk Horror: Hours Dreadful and Things Strange".
