Yves Bouwen

My favorites are a bit mainstream. I love to discover cult movies, hidden gems, that one movie that is completely bonkers.

    I don't care for Cronenberg's pseudo intellectual BS. But as a horror story, it is nicely set up for the third act. Unfortunately the third act is rather predictable. Maybe because it is because I knew the movie, without ever having seen it.

    I have to say Jack Black grows on me as an actor.

    The "Mask of Satan" version. A cult movie from cult director Mario Bava, staring cult actress Barbara Steele.

    A lot of Italian horror is style over substance. Not this one. It has substance and style. A style that is copied a zillion times.
    Gravestones, mist, cobwebs, dust, candles, thornbushes, torches, secret hallways, a crypt, ... Name a gothic cliche and it is here in it's fullest glory.

    This was so dark and the sun was shining outside, I found it hard to see what was going on. Was it filmed that way or crappy dvd transfer?
    Still I rooted for detective Vincent and Dr. Margo. How could I not? The man lost custody of his dog for god sake!
