The IFI in Dublin is celebrating the creepier side of film with a season dedicated to Folk Horror in July.
From the 16th to the 30th of July, eight films will delve deep into this sub category, pulling out terrifying tales of small towns and superstition and more than a few pagan rites held under cover of darkness.
It all kicks off with 1968s Witchfinder General and runs up to 1999s The Blair Witch Project - a film which was undoubtedly inspired by the folk horror world but also managed to have a massive influence on the genre as a whole, perpetuating the popularity of found footage films. For better or worse.
Novelist and well known film critic Kim Newman will be on hand for a number of screenings, including Witchfinder General, The Wicker Man and Quatermass and the Pit.
Here's the full list of screenings - tickets are available now at the IFI site.
