Feminist Folk Horror
27 May 2019 | by drey-62228See all my reviews

Or maybe its actually more of a folk story... because it doesn't start out like a full blown horror film. More of a moody pastoral drama, but by the climax its full on filthily farm yard terror. Which is extremely my thing. Beautiful landscapes and captivating performances. Snowdonia almost steals the show from the brilliant cast, but not quite. Sublime, atmospheric and epic, this film is a real chill and I'm still thinking about it days later. Uncanny and eerie to the bone.

My only complaint is that the Welsh where actually far more forgiving of Witchcraft than their English and Scottish cousins.
