Pretty Packaging: ALL THE HAUNTS BE OURS Boxset Bewitches And Enchants

Editor, Europe; Rotterdam, The Netherlands (@ardvark23)
Last year, writer-director Kier-La Janisse released Woodlands Dark and Days Bewitched at festivals and cinemas, and it fast gained word of mouth for being something special. Billed as a documentary about folk horror in films, it turned out to be that but also much more, its 3 hours and 14 minutes providing a loving and thorough look at witchcraft and mysticism around the world. In his review, our J. Hurtado called it " outstanding achievement in the academic treatment of genre filmmaking."

Needless to say I was excited when distributor Severin announced that Woodlands Dark and Days Bewitched would receive a lavish special edition Blu-ray release. But Severin did more: from their archives they dragged several films mentioned in the documentary, acquired a few extra, added loads of shorts and other documentaries, commissioned essays... This was all bundled into an absolutely stellar package, an ideal companion-piece for Janisse's film. The end result is a 15-disc boxset called All The Haunts Be Ours: A Compendium Of Folk Horror, and in my overview of 2021 I called it: "Objectively speaking, the best boxset of the year."

Such a claim needs proof of course, and in that article I promised this title would receive a "Pretty Packaging article in the next few days." Ehm... well, better late than never, right?
