Folk Horror

Hours Dreadful and Things Strange

Adam Scovell

Auteur Publishing in partnership with Liverpool University Press

Folk Horror: Hours Dreadful And Things Strange charts the summoning of these esoteric arts within the latter half of the twentieth century and beyond, using theories of psychogeography, hauntology, and topography to delve into the genre's output in film, television, and multimedia as its "sacred demon of ungovernableness" rises yet again in the twenty-first century.
