Examples? I haven't found too much on my own. My definition of folk horror is "horror arising from the landscape itself" so besides Children of the Corn, we appear to be sorely lacking in such things. (I have my theories as to why, but they are neither here nor there.)
If we were to accept that definition then The Blair Witch Project would be a prime example of American folk horror.
Then, maybe, so would the Wrong Turn franchise - with it's deranged hillbilly premise.
Then you have The Slender Man - both the myth itself and the fictional spin offs from it.
So plenty there to be getting on with!
