OK, guys. Enough. :P

I just added some thoughts to my original Suspiria post, in case anyone cares. When I get the Blue Underground DVD next week, I may have even more to say. And I've queued Tenebre, Deep Red, Inferno, and Opera.

I liked Suspiria but it's definitely a time where I feel like I'd get more out of it with a big screening of a great transfer with loud sound and stuff...yeah

I watched my new Suspiria DVD, and saw everything this time. It's safe to say I love it even more now!

Post Maiden's Voyage: Amer

    Image

      Did I say that last entry would be the only horror in this thread? I spoke too soon, although I'm not completely convinced Amer is a horror film. I'm not sure what it is, other than a strangely satisfying experience. I know it hits all the right notes for me: fairy tales, child's point of view, crazy colors, atmosphere, overwhelming sound. It's not perfect. The second segment, while obviously containing a crucial link regarding her growing sexual awareness, is weaker, sensually and thematically, than the other two; I have trouble believing it's the same person. But, the first and last parts are so visceral it doesn't really matter. I love the games Ana plays, and those the film plays with us. Such lovely, tantalizing ambiguity! One thing's for sure, though. I'm glad I saw all those Argentos first, so I could appreciate the many elements of homage. It even has the light bulb shot from Suspiria!

Wow, really? The first part was my favorite by quite a lot. I couldn't make the second part match up with the third psychologically. Maybe that's silly, I don't know. And it's assuming I understood what was going on, haha.

Hey, if you hadn't mentioned it in this thread a few days ago, I doubt if I'd have watched it. I know it's been talked about around here, but I'd completely missed it. I don't pay too much attention to horror discussion. :shifty:

Post Maiden's Voyage: Possession

Image Image

Possession – I knew going in that this would be a baffling mash-up of poignant drama and horror. But, for most of the film I thought I had a handle on what was going on. I understood the monster on the same plane as the electric knife, as a sort of extreme exaggeration of unfaithfulness/ betrayal. And, when the ground shifted beneath my feet, I proudly kept my balance. That scene where Anna's second victim reads her fevered mind is strangely luminous, and, like the Sister Faith monologue, creates an illusion of meaning and structure. It's a trick! In no time at all, I was flailing around like Heinrich in the bathroom. The kid knew about the end of the world? What was that about?! And how much did the pink-sock guy really know? The fact that Zulawski was working through the aftermath of his own painful divorce at the time makes the odd tangle of tones even more intriguing, because, for all the emotional pain and horror, it's undeniably goofy. The scenes between Mark and Heinrich are very, very funny. (And did anyone else find it amusing that the kid's name is Bob?) I'd read about how far Adjani went for her role, but Neill's performance was an eye-opener as well. I may not understand why Mark turns crazy/homicidal when he does, but it's a lot of fun to watch him do it; and that goes double for the film as a whole!

I have a strange desire to write the plot synopsis for the (nonexistent) Netflix envelope. They don't seem to mind spoilers:

      A government agent quits his job to try to save his marriage. When he discovers that his wife is a murderer, he goes into manic overdrive to save her from jail and earn back her love. But what he doesn’t know is that the tentacle monster is great in bed. Can he hide the bodies and kill the monster before the apocalypse begins?

Ah, success! Isn't it crazy? I thought Heinrich was hilarious every minute. And the way Mark changes in that restroom scene was disturbingly entertaining.

I would say it's just something that makes the kid feel safe, but he seems so knowing when the monster shows up. I'm not wasting a lot of thought on this, believe me. It's total insanity from the moment the guy with pink socks shows up. I loved the ending, regardless.
