Show Notes

Have you noticed that it's kind of cold outside? Well, not everywhere, of course. But if you live near us, then you know what we're talking about. Why not warm up with a dose of cozy folk horror? It's the return of one of our favorites, the Winter of Folk Horror!

We travel the world, once again, stopping first in Norway for a swim in the Lake of the Dead (1958). The over to Ireland to spend some time with the forest creatures we find in The Hallow (2015). And then from there, we visit South Korea, and try to familiarize ourselves with a variety of religious elements on the fly, to better understand Svaha: The Sixth Finger (2019).
