Folxlore is a series of queer horror stories written as a hybrid of spoken word and audio fiction.


Each episode intertwines the tales of queer inhabitants of the city as their lives oscillate between the mundane and supernatural. 


Folxlore asks the question: If paranoia is common sense, how can you tell if you're being unreasonable?


Episode 1. 'Werehouse' by Ross McFarlane

Some doors are locked for a reason, and that’s what makes them so appealing. Everyone knows that. Every thing does too.

Episode 2. 'Between' by Syd Briscoe

The world is filled with dark figures when you can’t find it in you to look up. Good luck trying to work out the shape of the danger that surrounds you.

Episode 3. 'Static' by Bibi June

Being a new parent means not knowing what you’re doing. It’s normal. Not knowing what you’ve done? That’s terrifying…


After the success of our Pilot episodes in 2020, Folxlore will be returning with a full first season of 8 episodes in 2021.
