    Woodlands Dark and Days Bewitched: A History of Folk Horror

    ★★★

    This movie is on shudder and it’s a really interesting documentary about one of horrors most subtly influential sub genre, folk horror.

    This film rally shows that folk horror is one of those sub genres that the tropes that define it seem so obvious that you miss them, but when you really look at theme and digest the themes these films really are substantive stories with a lot of depth and meaning. 

    This movie goes over tons of films that I’m sure you haven’t seen so it’s definitely a movie to watch for new movies for your watchlist.

  • The House

    The House

    ★★★½

    The three shorts ranked:

    Stephen Root pantomiming an erection is worth the price of admission alone. 

    So story-wise it’s Macbeth so it’s gonna be what you expect. But what makes this version actually cinematically significant isn’t the beautiful photography but more importantly rather it’s Coen’s usage of cinematic grammar. You could literally take out the dialogue sound and add title cards and the same film could be shown in the style of a 20s European silent film. 

    Overall this film is pretty bleak and haunting but hey it’s Macbeth so kinda the point right?
