The Man from Another Place #2: Duel (1971)

Another post where I highlight writing I’ve done for other blogs.

Once again it’s a piece for Howard Ingham’s Room 207 blog. Howard’s crowdfunding to get his essays on Folk Horror published. I hope you consider supporting We Don’t Go Back: a Watcher’s Guide to Folk Horror. Full disclosure: hopefully I’ll have a couple of essays in it too.

For this post I’m making an argument for Steven Spielberg’s first film Duel (1971)1, to be considered part of the Folk Horror canon.

1 I’m taking ‘first film’ to mean a feature-length presentation that received a theatrical release. And Firelight (1964) doesn’t count.
