Directed by Piers Haggard
1971, UK, 97 min

* December 7th screening introduced by Kier-La Janisse.

The ‘Folk Horror’ genre reached its grisly peak with the legendary 1971 Tigon shocker still hailed as “haunting” (Empire), “daring and significant” (The Digital Fix) and “very, very nasty” (British Horror). When an inhuman skull is unearthed in 17th century rural England, it will spawn an unholy frenzy of carnal insanity – embodied in an infamous performance by Linda Hayden (House on Straw Hill) as a succulent teen temptress – pagan depravity and ritual summoning of the ultimate evil.  Patrick Wymark (Witchfinder General), Barry Andrews (Dracula Has Risen from the Grave) and James Hayter (The Horror of Frankenstein) co-star in “one of the finest British horror films ever made” (Digital Retribution), directed by Piers Haggard (Venom) and now scanned in stunning 4k from the original negative.

Woodland Haunts: A Folk Horror Overview is presented with the generous support of IATSE 856.
