Midsommar + The Cockleshell Heroes + DemonLover - Eclectica #213

Jul 10, 10:10 AM
THROAT SINGING OF TERROR

Folk horror comes to the multiplexes this week with Ari Aster's Midsommar, set in a Swedish pagan commune. Aster's own preferred human sacrifice ritual involves dividing podcasters in half as to how well his movies work - what did Graham and Aidan think of this one?

Off the Shelf, meanwhile, sees Graham embarking on a top-secret mission to review Eureka's WWII comedy-drama The Cockleshell Heroes, while Aidan logs on for Arrow's reissue of Olivier Assayas's early-00s online grot thriller Demonlover. Does it still have the power to sink its tentacles into audiences?

If you missed your Graham fix, we recommend his other podcast - Literary Loitering, and it's full of unhinged weirdness. There's also our Patreon, too.
