Kirsty, Stella, Dan and Ian have been raving about Host, last year’s ‘Zoom seance’ movie from Shudder, almost since before it was released, and now they are blessed to be joined for a freewheeling chat by one of its writers, Gemma Hurley. Gemma talks about the experience of writing that film, her rollercoaster 2020, the challenges of pitching genre material for TV in the UK, and why she loves folk horror. Meanwhile, Howard calls in with another pick from The Bag of Death.
For a those wishing to cultivate a folk horror vibe, watch The Imagined Village’s John Barleycorn on YouTube (it’s from their 2007 debut album, available from Real World Records) and our previous episodes on Witchcraft and Paganism, Parts One and Two
Heathers can currently be streamed via Shudder
