The Folk Horror Podcast Episode 3: The Wicker Man (1973), pt. 3

It's all wrapped, our discussion of The Wicker Man that is, which you can find here: 

First up, how about some EXCLUSIVE pictures from Mike's trip to Puerto Varas, Chile during the Carnaval del Sur (literally Carnival of the South). Very May Day procession, even with its own wicker statue. Interesting to read that Puerto Varas was founded by German immigrants, though I don't know if that's why these costumes are reminiscent of European festivals. The pictures were taken in November, 2017 (Spring in South America.)

All these photos are copyright Michael Schwartz.

And here are those screenshots, thanks Mike! Check out that mise-en-scène.

Bright Phoebus

Have a slice.

Meow meow.

Not dead.

Dead and mostly 'armless. Hanged?

Sunny with a chance of Cher.

Ready to Punch someone.

Why so nervous, Ingrid?

This might be the band GOAT, I'm not sure.


Edward Woodward sees the Wicker Man.

Oh no.

Daniel my brother, do you still feel the pain . . .
