  • Folk Horror

    An article from the nice people at Caught by the River about a new book that focuses on British horror films and their relation to the folk tradition.

    Looks good Nick. The author Adam Scovell has a blog called Celluloid Wicker Man which deals with essays and analysis of film and art. His writing is excellent and he also makes evocative short films with a sense of the Bristish landscape and its underlying folklore.

    A book called Folk Horror Revival: Field Studies has been out for a while now. It includes work by various authors (including Adam) with a high emphasis on British film and television.

      Hope it looks at the TV plays of the 70s that fall into this genre: especially Robin Redbreast and Penda's Fen.

        The background to the music from The Wicker Man, thanks to the BFI.

          Thanks, Nick. A very enjoyable piece about a fascinating and wonderful soundtrack which ironically has nothing to do with Scottish folk music.
