Over 500 locations with magical links, including film, TV, and literary locations of folk horror and occult classics.

The Ritual Issue

Mummers with ill intentions, sacrificial May Queens, ecstatic trances. Folk horror is consistently fascinated by the power of ritual. In this issue we question the subgenre’s distrust of communal expression while we celebrate communities and their power to re-enchant. We travel through the isles following parades of ancient antlers, clashing swords, and spectral skeleton horses, and look at an ever-evolving body of folklore in order to reflect on our history and our future. This is our Beltane offering: folklore, magic, togetherness, and re-enchantment.
