HBO’s Folklore anthology returns with a second season of stories rooted in Asian superstitions and rituals; Netflix documentary Monsters Inside examines the many faces of Billy Milligan

  • Season two of Folklore has more stories that explore superstitions, traditions and rituals, starting with a Taiwanese bride who comes apart in a strange town
  • Monsters Inside on Netflix, subtitled The 24 Faces of Billy Milligan, is an examination of ‘the campus rapist’ who terrorised Ohio State University in 1977
