socky_puppy was kind enough to support MeFi with a donation. I'm fulfilling their request with six folk horror films. I'll be posting them under the hashtag #6folkhorrorstofundff. I'll also be tagging them with #folkhorror, naturally, so that socky_puppy can help themselves to some of the other fine stuff posted in that subgenre.

Donate $20 or more to MeFi and you can MeMail me a request for a themed day of your own. I'll fill up the sidebar on FF with six movies that fit your theme.

I remember enjoying this. The ending was very unexpected and while I'm not sure they totally stuck the landing, I enjoyed that I couldn't predict it.

I thought this was decent overall, with a novel ending, though of course my mind instantly wondered, how did we end up with that retrieved footage?

Somehow this one gave me a miss until today. I'm a bit mixed on it. It relies on a lot of FF tropes, but it held my attention. And the reveal was fun bit of pulling the carpet out from under.

But I'm glad he punched that kid for setting the sheep on fire.
