    Say 'I want to go to the World's Fair' 3 times fast

    The finale of our spooky anniversary season is here! Just in time for Halloween, the Sad Girls are discussing two internet-centered films, Pulse (2006) and We’re All Going to the World’s Fair (2021), and explore how they fit into the Folk Horror canon. How do internet-native urban legends shift our perception of folklore today?

    As Halloween creeps closer, Bethany and Mary invoke spirits and monsters while discussing folk horror in the Candyman films (1992 & 2021) and The Skeleton Key (2005). Each film approaches the legacy and stain of slavery in the US, and the terrors that continue to stem from it.

    The Wicker Men

    Welcome to the most wonderful time of the year, listeners! We’re celebrating the best way we know how, by talking about horror movies. But not just any kind of horror, we’re delving into folk horror and exploring what makes the genre so disturbing. This week we’re watching both versions of The Wicker Man (1973 and 2006), the first film that comes to mind when we think of folk horror.
