London-based punk trio Doe pick their 10 favourite horror films, from Alien to The Wicker Man, with a little Toxic Avenger in-between.
If you read this latest Radiohead news on a non-UK site, there's some mild confusion as to the style of the stop-motion animation used in their latest enigmatic social media post. Well it's fucking Trumpton isn't it.
The Wicker Man comes from a long tradition of tricksy, terrifying, blackly comic horrors that terrified and unsettled a timid little Britain in the early 70s. There are some corkers in this period. Ken Russell’s gruelling The Devils, the hilarious Theatre of Blood starring Vincent Price, and Piers Haggard’s Blood on Satan’s Claw which joins Witchfinder General, The Devil Rides Out and The Wicker Man itself in a tiny little sub-genre of four called Folk Horror, a place where ancient pagan traditions make a cruel mockery of Christianity.
