Just saw the ad for this and came to post it. Not surprised to be too late.
It looks good.

Re: Movie Recommendations

Got the Spirit Cabinet disc with The Mill At Calder's End and The Narrative Of Victor Karloch. The stories aren't very interesting, they're fairly nice exercises in Victorian ghost horror style. The puppets are very impressive, there's a little bit of unnecessary computer facial animation. Barbara Steele, Elijah Wood, Christopher Lloyd and some others lend their voices and likenesses for the puppets. I look forward to what this team does in the future.

I watched the second disc of Quay Brothers - Inner Sanctums (I've seen everything on the first disc on the earlier compilation). I'm less fond of the museum documentaries, which can be a little too slow but their regular puppet stories are still some of the most beautiful and mysterious films being made, some of them are literary adaptations.
The short Christopher Nolan documentary is really just the Quay Brothers giving a tour of their amazing storage room.

The route of exploring European fairy tale films is very tantalizing for me right now. I'm a bit daunted by it though, most of this will probably be done on youtube and I've bought Enchanted Screen by Jack Zipes to help me, it's a big book with a good chapter on old European fairy tale films. The film list at the back is enormous.

RUSALOCHKA/THE LITTLE MERMAID (1976)

This time the mermaid trades her hair colour. Some pretty good songs, some of it even sounds a bit like Magma. I thought the witch was going to be a villain but she's just kind of a crude comedic character. I don't understand why they used rubbish special effects to make the mermaid look like she's in the water in some scenes when she's actually in the water in other scenes. It's a nice film, but I mostly enjoyed the incredible cuteness of the mermaid (the only film role of Viktoriya Novikova?) and the gorgeous princess.

MALA MORSKA VILA/THE LITTLE MERMAID (1976)

Beautifully designed film, the caves with mirrors and statues, all the mer-people (who don't have fish tails but regular human bodies) have slightly silly yet amazing hair entangled with decorations. It must be one of the more elegant screen versions of the story and the soundtrack by Zdenek Liska can be quite powerful (the beats in the cave scenes are quite strange), the soundtrack is easier to get on disc than the film. I recommend it.

Re: Movie Recommendations

BLACK MAGIC

Shaw Brothers. It isn't one of their supernatural martial arts mixes, this is just supernatural horror that revolves around people using magic to have sex with or kill each other. It makes no sense in a few places, has awful special effects, has a scene of a guy wrestling a dog that looks quite irresponsible for the filmmakers to do, but the film is fairly entertaining. There is a brief vision of a woman surrounded by a few hopping women in a forest and I wish it had more imagery like that.

BESOURO/THE ASSAILANT

Brazilian historical fantasy film about a legendary Capoeirista in a time after slavery was officially over but black people were still treated like slaves. It's very nicely shot, has a touch of psychedelia and there's quite a lot of African mythology. Very unusual and pretty good.

Re: Movie Recommendations

HORRIBLE DR HICHCOCK

If this isn't the first necrophilia horror film it has to be one of the earliest. It fares quite well next to the gothic Bava and Corman films, nice moody colours and cool soundtrack. Some of the acting is a bit lousy but the doctor comes across pretty creepy at times.

ENDLESS POETRY

I enjoyed this but much less than Dance Of Reality. I thought it was a shame that his father's redemption was taken away. I've got mixed feelings about how miraculous and wonderful everything is treated as, on one hand it makes everything seem underwhelming because it's not living up to his hype, on the other hand Jodorowsky seems to really believe in it all and there's something really nice about how much value he places in art, even if it's in a cliched and arrogant way. I thought some of the poems were really nice.

Re: Movie Recommendations

This is a Hellboy fan trailer I found again after I watched it almost ten years ago; the artwork made me want to read the comic for the first time back then.


Your fall should be like the fall of mountains. But I was before mountains. I was in the beginning, and shall be forever. The first and the last. The world come full circle. I am not the wheel. I am the hand that turns the wheel. I am Time, the Destroyer. I was the wind and the stars before this. Before planets. Before heaven and hell. And when all is done, I will be wind again, to blow this world as dust back into endless space. To me the coming and going of Man is as nothing.
