The Wicker Man by Screaming Queenz Horror Podcast published on 2018-12-16T00:20:23Z There's nowt so queer as folk horror, as the old saying goes. Well, sort of. The folk horror subgenre was kick-started by the strange, hypnotic and utterly spellbinding 1973 classic, The Wicker Man. The tale of a devoutly religious policeman who finds himself looking for a missing child on the remote Pagan island of Summerisle, The Wicker Man pushed the boundaries with its depiction of sexual freedom, alternative living and its truly shocking finale. So why didn't it find its audience upon release? And just why did Christopher Lee read poetry to a snail? In our last episode of 2018 we're jumping naked over flames, rubbing our breasts against the wall and gobbling up frogs. It's so blasphemous we could just scream! Settle down and listen to our take on what has been called "The Citizen Kane of horror"... Find us on Facebook - search Screaming Queenz Podcast - and LIKE us!
