”From the creators of The ABCs of Death (Tim League and Ant Timpson) comes a horror anthology that takes you on a global expedition to folklore’s darkest outposts. — The end result is a cinematically stunning portmanteau. Each of the eight chapters is its own masterpiece. All are considerate of the source material as they take you deep into the other worldliness of fairy tales and indulge you in the international language of irrational fear fuelled by tradition and superstition. Unsurprising really, when you consider the inspired directorial choices. Greece’s Yannis Veslemes (Norway), UK’s Peter Strickland (Duke Of Burgundy), Poland’s Agnieszka Smorcynska (The Lure) and Germany’s Katrin Gebbe (Nothing Bad Can Happen) to name but four of the more exciting and challenging horror/fantasy genre directors working in film today, let alone a role call of half of those who contributed their visions to this wonderful project.
— The Field Guide To Evil is a touring magic mushroom festival to eight strangely unfamiliar places that will blur your understanding of the world through the old stories that simmer just beneath the fabric of all modern, civil societies.” – Stuart Wright / Britflicks.com
”This is ‘folk horror’ par excellence, hopping the globe in search of the collective origins of our errant unconscious.”
– Anton Bitel / SciFiNow
”Strickland’s piece feels very unlike his previous work. — he allows himself and his audience to have fun while still giving them a good jolt”
– J Hurtado / ScreenAnarchy
