—Kristy Puchko, ROGEREBERT.COM
Kier-la Janisse, director and author of the essential HOUSE OF PSYCHOTIC WOMEN, explores the folk horror phenomenon and its culturally specific manifestations in international genre film, from its first wave in the 1970s to modern day. Comprehensive and relentlessly fascinating, this award-winning documentary careens from iconic terror masterworks like WITCHFINDER GENERAL and the original WICKER MAN to all-but-unknown regional fare like EYES OF FIRE and EVE'S BAYOU. This hypnotic investigation into horror's elemental underbelly will take root in your skull and transform you forever.
