I bought a bunch of Vinegar Syndrome movies earlier this year and had that in my cart before I decided to cut back. It definitely came on my radar from them though.

Nice! Will definitely grab that, I've fallen behind on horror movies the last few months because I've run out of movies I actually want to watch.

woah runaway nightmare is definitely tuned to its own frequency. it's probably a perfect movie in that if you changed anything about it, it would lose it's singular vibe. "doris wishman makes faster pussy cat kil kill" is p good shorthand for describing it, wherever i read that nailed it. it's also like an anna biller movie with severe head trauma. or that's just woken up, dazed, from a coma. or Sisters of Death remade by a bot. the bleeding skull review says that it's a really bad movie and, sure, i see that, but it also mentions in passing that it can be seen as a commentary on women in 80s horror - i think that's 100% true. it's beside the point if that's accidental or not. it has random vampires and the ending rips off Kiss Me Deadly. pure magic.

Ooh - can this be uploaded to the DB?

rewatched What Have They Done to Your Daughters? this afternoon in work. it was quiet and i found it on the internet movie archive. i was about 15 minutes into a cool paul naschy werewolf movie but switched over when i found this. definitely one of my favourite giallos even if it's barely a giallo. it's made by a guy who did cinematography for leone and you can tell. just a beautifully shot movie. soundtrack is also incredible

that's a shame, i hope they really do make use of the extra year, because the best parts of the last one were super fun, but the podcast stuff and a few other nigglescouldve been tightened and cleaned up. id totally see this in imax tho.

in other news, 'relic' is getting real good reviews, prob gonna check that out this weekend

Relic was an OK way to spend 90 minutes on a Saturday night. Overtly obvious metaphor, but I really dug the House of Leaves-esque ending.

i didn't know this was a melburnian production going in so my main takeaway is that it's really weird to see your own city in a movie i dunno how u guys do it all the time

manvstrees i don't have it for the place but if nobody else does, i watched it here, a p nice copy: https://archive.org/details/What.have.they.done.to

along the same lines the other day i watched Le Orme (aka Footprints on the Moon) which is one i hadn't seen before and had put off for a long time. it was so good. not what i expected at all. it's made by luigi bazzoni who did The Fifth Cord which truly is one of the most beautifully shot giallos. the cinematography in Le Orme (as well as The Fifth Cord) is by vittorio storaro, a few years after he helped blow everybodys' mind with The Conformist. it's a stunning movie to just look at. but it isn't a giallo, it's more an amnesia/woman in peril psychological drama and it's p gripping for the duration. florinda bolkan is excellent in the lead role. you'll recognise her from some of those earlier fulci movies. it also features klaus kinski getting paid for doing nothing for about 20 seconds. extremely great move tho. i'll watch it again.

id forgotten about le orme like a bad dream, i stumbled onto it when i was on a storaro kick years ago, it's a seriously beautiful fucked up movie. proto-lynchian, even!

'footprints on the moon' is a much better title i think too, it's a really haunting phrase in context

Probably a stretch, but is there any chance anybody might have In The Company Of Wolves they could throw in the place? Or even like a half decent streaming link?

It's the gf's birthday today and she was pretty stoked to try and watch it tonight but I'm coming up with zero from my usual haunts
