It's been hailed as "stunning" (Diabolique Magazine), "brilliant" (AV Club) and "mind-blowingly epic" (Film Threat), and stands as perhaps the definitive genre documentary of our time. From writer/director/co-producer Kier-La Janisse comes "a seductive mega-text" (Indiewire) through the history of folk horror, featuring clips from over 200 films and interviews with more than 50 filmmakers, authors and scholars that explore the rural roots, occult creeds and cultural lore that continue to shape international cinema. Severin Films presents this "astounding achievement" (Screen Anarchy) - also featuring an original score by Jim Williams (A FIELD IN ENGLAND), animation by Ashley Thorpe (BORLEY RECTORY) and collage sequences by Guy Maddin (MY WINNIPEG) - that Rue Morgue calls "an unprecedented journey into where folk horror has been, where it's going and ultimately what it says about humanity."

No, we only ship inside the US
Most orders for in-stock items take less than 24 hours to ship (may take longer if you place an order over the weekend). Pre-orders are shipped as soon as the product arrives. International pre-orders may not come in before the street date. This is especially true with Australian pre-orders.
We only use USPS for all shipments. If there is an issue after your order ships you will need to contact your local post office.
All items that come with a slipcover will say so in the product page.
Pre-orders will not say WITH SLIPCOVER until the product comes in.
Slipcovers are not guaranteed to be in mint condition.
If you can order it, it's either in stock or a pre-order. If an item is out of stock you will not be able to add it to your cart. It's rare but our inventory may not be correct. So in some cases an item may have to be shipped separately.
We do not sell bootlegs. All product arrives from the distributor or is directly from the filmmakers. All items are new and sealed. Some indie titles or signed editions may not have shrinkwrap.
