RESURGENCE OF FOLK HORROR @ HORROR HOMEROOM – THE RITUAL

By 17th November 2015Uncategorised

THE RITUAL gets a nice mention in this interesting article on Folk Horror at Horror Homeroom:

“If you haven’t yet heard of “folk horror,” this post will serve as your introduction to a subgenre that seems to be experiencing something of a renaissance. It’ll also get you ready for the release onto VOD on Friday (November 6) of what promises to be a compelling example of that renaissance—The Hallow, a British-Irish co-production filmed in Ireland, and directed by Corin Hardy. The official trailer includes the tag-line, “Nature has a dark side,” getting at what I think is perhaps the most distinctive characteristic of folk horror: Nature is no longer content to be background. Nature has power, agency, in folk horror. It lives, moves, acts, overpowers, destroys.”
