"There are witch-hunting narratives, and pagan community narratives—there are all kinds of them!” Kier-La Janisse (Wikipedia, IMDB), director of Woodlands Dark and Days Bewitched, describes her 24-hour, international folk horror film festival to the Onion's A.V. Club.

I just watched The Lottery for the second time in my life. My class in primary school saw it once in a context that now eludes me, save that it was considered Just Fine to traumatize kids back in the seventies.

Anyway, looking back now, I notice that gangly, tow-headed Jack Watson is a nineteen-year-old Ed Begley Jr.

There's also previous Ask Me posts - 1, 2, 3 (ish).

For those on Letterboxd, I think this might be the most complete list there of the titles mentioned & discussed in Woodlands Dark and Days Bewitched.

I’d like to watch A Field in England, but the DVD I found had pretty muddy sound, and I feared a seizure from the editing and effects.

I've watched a decent number of these through Kanopy, worth checking to see if your library offers it.
