Can I get a few recs for some horror films that are not horror-y? Sort of in the vein of Trick or' Treat. I like to watch horror around this time of year but not a big fan of gore/overly distressing imagery

Oh, yeah I did too. I only meant the attempt at a "cure" at the very end. It seemed both too unlikely and too easy. But, yeah, the acting was great.

Have you seen Housebound or Screamplay?

12 to the Moon (1960)

Thought "intriguingly strange events" might portend some horror mixed with the sci-fi. Actually, what I learned above all is that the IMDb rating is way, way too high.

I can't believe it's taken me so long to see Eraserhead. Such an amazing experience – part Charlie Chaplin, part Visitor of a Museum, part crazy things you hope to never see again! Who knew that anxiety could be so fascinating and funny, and, strangest of all, so beautiful? David Lynch is a genius; what else is there to say? See it, if you have not!

Two for one, today!

The Killer Must Kill Again is a giallo with a twist. We see the murder (and who does it). The tension is in the things that go wrong, and the desperate efforts of the perpetrator to cover his tracks. It's a good looking thriller, and decently suspenseful. Some great faces to watch, too, while the killer stalks, and rapes, and (yes) kills again!

Image Image


My second one isn't really horror, though IMDb says it is, but I guess the patient-eye-view is supposed to be disturbing. A Page of Madness is a melodramatic tale set inside an insane asylum. Without intertitles (and a good chunk of the film) it's not always completely clear what's going on, but the gorgeous, surreal images carry you along, and the claustrophobia and chaos just jump off the screen. More pictures here.

Just back from Crimson Peak and I quite enjoyed it. Your basic gothic ghost story beautifully filmed with rich colors (I'd almost forgotten what it was like to go to the theater and see actual color on the screen, that was nice) Story was good, very similar themes and symbols carry over from Devil's Backbone. Hiddleston is his usual charismatic self. Definitely worth seeing over the usual Sinister/Insidious/Paranormal Activity shit that crowds the cinemas this time of year.

Y'know, I almost feel that the dramatic moments in the film are actually stronger/more suspenseful than the moments that were meant to be spooky. All of it was a feast for the eyes.

You all have convinced me I have to see Crimson Peak! But, in the meantime...

Santa Sangre is amazing! I thought of Almodóvar several times, and I'm guessing now that Jodorowsky has been an influence on Sono, since this mixes romance and horror, melodrama, and madness in a way that's very similar to Strange Circus and Love Exposure. But, beyond that, it's just a great, great film. Casting brothers as Fenix at different ages was a sweet surprise, and the colors, and the camp, and the haunting images are all perfect. But the best thing is the tenderness with which the reveals are accomplished at the end, the satisfying way all the pieces click into place. This is what mournful nostalgia is all about!

For the most part I agree, but the use of practical effects and the designs themselves were really vivid and gorgeous, I thought.

Also, it's fun how the entire main set of the film is basically an extended Three Mothers series tribute.

It's possible that I've seen all the Jodorowsky films at this point. And I own most of them on Blu. This one is imaginative and well-executed. The story is a bit more clever than some of his earlier films. There is more of that aspect that they call "heart" in Hollywood, as well.

And I've seen Jodorowsky's influence (or, like you, I think I have) in the work of several of the directors of the bizarre. Jupiter Ascending is nowhere nearly as good as any Jodorowsky film, but the influence seems to be there. And Mad Max: Fury Road has all kinds of "Jodorowsky moments."

After Santa Sangre, I'm afraid I peaked early. But I still have six more to watch, plus I'm always open to suggestions. Does anyone want to pick my next horror film? Here's what's left of my list:

    See You in Hell, My Darling (Nikos Nikolaidis, 1999)
    Beauty and the Beast (Juraj Herz, 1978)
    Calvaire (Fabrice Du Welz, 2004)
    Ganja & Hess (Bill Gunn, 1973)
    The Blind Woman's Curse (Teruo Ishii, 1970)
    Seven Blood Stained Orchids (Antonio Sabato, 1972)

Ganja & Hess is delicious! This is dense, evocative stuff that I won't attempt to decode, at least not until I've seen it again. Stylistically, it reminds me of The Hunger, but its roots in culture and myth make this one quite a bit stronger. Also, where Scott's arty vampire's are cold, Gunn's are all fierce emotion. Told through piercing character revelations, disturbing dreams, and fantastic sound, the title characters are folded (crushed) into a colorful collage of love and anguish and longing for redemption. Great movie!

Panna a netvor is a fairy tale brought beautifully to life by the director of The Cremator, of all people. Most of the satisfaction here comes from the just-rightness of everything: Zdena Studenková makes a sweet story-book heroine, the house is a perfect spooky ruin, the selfish half-sisters are made to order. When Julie dances with the statues, I expected Disney music, haha. The most interesting design is the monster, a hideous bird-like creature out of On the Silver Globe. Rather than a cruel and inexplicable Chern, though, this monster is neurotic and easily led (by a never-explained whispering tormentor). I wouldn't call this horror, though there's a definite sense of menace in the monster's house, and an early scene of raping and pillaging makes it oddly unsuited for kids.

Walkin' woods. Defs horror in my book. Also, damned spots. Truly horrific. The bard's most gruesome play. (Titus Andronicus excepted)

The Haunting isn't scary but I still like it a lot. Housebound is hilarious and entertaining.

A Girl Walks Home At Night is hypnotic. Almost Human sucks. Twixt and Dead Silence are both decent films that had multiple factors holding them back. The Final Terror is great btw.

A curiosity about Eraserhead is how differently the audio is set up on the home video releases compared to the way it's played in cinemas, the sound is almost pummeling in a theater setting for that film, that plus the intense grain on the film prints that always seems oddly decreased makes it almost feel like a different film.

Mightily tempted by this next weekend. Only seen Tourist Trap before (at another all night horror event just last year, so could deliberately sleep through that). All 35mm, except for Christine which is 16mm.

Cemetery Man is frenetic and gory and stupid and fun, but don't ask me a for plot summary. I mean, there was so much going on all the time and Rupert Everett would take his shirt off and drink a glass of wine and I'd get distracted. It's a beautiful movie, though, and such a strange, perfect mix of funny and wistful. Another way to say it: it's cynical in a way that calls to mind sweetness. Does that make any sense? And, even though I'm not at all sure what the ending meant, it was sad and strangely satisfying. Why haven't more directors taken advantage of Everett's massive talent for deadpan humor?! I think I love this movie. Will I see it again? Yes.
