All You Need Is Death
Young couple Anna and Aleks collect folk ballads, the rarer the better, and the more money they can sell them for. Following a tip from a fellow collector, they secretly record a song so ancient that it is in a forgotten dialect. But once they begin to translate the song, they discover the terrifying reason why it was never meant to be passed on.
Acclaimed Irish director Paul Duane’s first foray into genre film is a folk horror steeped in the dark mythology of the folk song, bolstered by an outstanding cast and a suitably ominous soundtrack from Lankum’s Ian Lynch. SE
