SECRET POWERS OF ATTRACTION

SECRET POWERS OF ATTRACTION

THE MISKATONIC INSTITUTE OF HORROR STUDIES – LONDON presents:
SECRET POWERS OF ATTRACTION: FOLK HORROR IN ITS CULTURAL CONTEXT

British “folk horror” was in many ways a phenomenon of the 1970s, but it has seen a massive revival of popularity in the last decade. What caused it to grow in the fields, forests and furrows of the 1970s and early 1980s? And why has it come back with such a vengeance?

In SECRET POWERS OF ATTRACTION, Howard David Ingham gives a broad overview of British folk horror in its time and space, and how popular interest in the occult creates the conditions for it to become a force in our collective imagination.

Instructor: Howard David Ingham
