The IFI present Haunted Landscapes – A Season of Folk Horror from 16 – 30 July. According to David O’Mahony, Head of Programming at the IFI, “the term folk horror has been used to yoke together disparate cultural artefacts that exhibit common traits: an interest in paganism; traditional, rural communities with a connection to the land and its regenerative cycles; the importance of ritual and superstition over scientific rigour.”

The season welcomes renowned horror fiction novelist and critic Kim Newman to Dublin, who is attending the opening weekend to introduce Witchfinder General,  The Wicker Man and Quartermass and the Pit.
