Woodlands Dark and Days Bewitched: A History of Folk Horror

Woodlands Dark and Days Bewitched: A History of Folk Horror ★★★★

A truly fascinating documentary providing a comprehensive and insightful look at folk horror from around the globe. It is digestible and engaging the whole way through despite its length. What makes it great for me is it doesn't feel like an information dump, but it divides the discussion into six chapters, with beautiful animation, photo collages, and transitions that separates them, coupled with folky music and poetry. It covers everything from the history and its roots, showcasing hundreds of films, most which I haven't seen or never thought as folk horror. I’m glad Shudder picked this up. If you’re a fan of the sub-genre, then this incredibly deep dive into the genre is an absolute must.
