What is British folk horror and is it the best new movie subgenre?

There are some things that the British have always done better, for example, empire building, drinking tea, and living with the rain. But, what about when it comes to movies? There’s a movie subgenre called British folk horror, and some people are saying that it’s the best new movie subgenre out there.

Tell me about British folk horror

The British folk horror subgenre is alive and well, and for fans of horror, it’s a great thing. Folk horror is about the dark and sometimes perverse influences of society. It also incorporates common European and pagan traditions. Most of British folk horror is pre-Christian, which means that the big bad villain of a movie is usually older than anything Christian, and incredibly evil.

British folk horror on the rise

British folk horror is on the rise and it’s because fans of horror are getting tired of seeing the same old thing. The most common trope of horror is currently zombies and fans have been inundated with it. In the past few years, there have been so many zombie movies and TV shows that it’s almost like that’s all there is to horror. Fans of horror have thus been looking for something new to watch for a while, and British folk horror is fitting the bill.

British folk horror is not new

British folk horror is not a new subgenre. It’s been around for decades, but it has waxed and waned in popularity over time. In the 1960s and 1970s British folk horror films were met with international success. One of the reasons behind the popularity of the subgenre at the time was that people were realizing the peaceful loving ways of the hippie weren’t going to be successful, and a new way of looking at the world was coming into being. British folk horror is a dark way of looking at society and the world.

Some famous movies of British folk horror

Hammer Films in the UK was the most successful studio with British folk horror films in the 1960s and 1970s. Some of the famous movies of the time were Witchfinder General (1968), The Devil Rides Out (1968), and Blood on Satan’s Claw (1971).

Some people enjoy being scared, but getting scared only works when you see something new. Doing the same old thing again and again means that people expect what’s going to happen, or get bored with seeing what they’re watching. The rise of British folk horror is because people want to see something new and this subgenre doesn’t disappoint.
