  • The Laughing Woman

    The Laughing Woman

    “You have a very odd way of spending your weekends.”

    Ultra stylish and enthralling, Italian gem from Piero Schivazappa with some incredible set designs and intricate, psychological interplay between the two leads. Both Dagmar Lassander and Philippe Leroy excell in their roles as the female journalist Maria and the sadistic Dr. Sayer respectively. 'The Laughing Woman' aka. 'The Frightened Woman' aka. 'Games of Love, Games of Death' captures the zeitgeist of the time and the changing dynamic between the traditional…

    "I can't feel sorry for the victims. I need to keep on killing."

    Austrian glass, concrete and steel, shot straight into your veins! Gerald Kargl's 1983 psycho killer shocker is a jolt to the system, where Erwin Leder plays a man just released from prison. He goes to a cafeteria and enjoys a bratwurst (in the most disturbing way possible) while ogling some girls at the counter. He then get's in a taxi and almost strangles the chauffeur with his…

    "Sleep at night instead of playing cards - you look like refugees from the morgue."

    Poverty, hunger, broken dreams, and how to turn some the worst characters imaginable into flesh and blood people you actually root for, or sympathize with.

    I've had 'Salò, or the 120 Days of Sodom' by Pier Paolo Pasolini sitting on my shelf for years without even getting it out of the plastic. Guess I am saving it for that special day, but i though why…

    Invasion of the Body Snatchers

    ★★★★

    "We came here from a dying world. We drift through the universe, from planet to planet, pushed on by the solar winds. We adapt and we survive. The function of life is survival."

    Philip Kaufman's spooky remake of the 1950's classic still packs a punch! I think this might have been one of the very first horror films I ever saw when it played on TV back in the day (the other was probably 'Poltergeist II' on VHS), and I…

    Deep Red

    ★★★★★

    "I can feel death in this room! I feel a presence, a twisted mind sending me thoughts! Perverted, murderous thoughts... Go away! You have killed! And you will kill again!"

    Unmatched, murderous mood, so thick you can slice it with a razor blade. Creepy dolls, eerie nursery rhymes, unnerving children's paintings, David Hemmings and Daria Nicolodi having great on-screen chemistry, Turin at nighttime, all insanely gorgeously shot by master craftsman Luigi Kuveiller . This is a hell of a movie!…
