Bay of Blood (1971) film review
Caution this contains spoilers. The horror delight of the week is A Bay of Blood (1971) directed by Mario Bava, also known as Blood Bath, or Carnage, Twitch of the Death Nerve; it stars Claudine Auger, Luigi Pistilli and Claudio Volonte. Far before the release of his own feature films (he would go on to release 24), Mario Bava worked as a screenwriter, cinematographer, and special effects artist for years. Known as the 'Master of Italian Horror', and 'The Master of Macabre', his giallo thrillers, stylishly violent, have had a large impact on the slashers that we acclaim today.
Nocturne (2020) film review
Nocturne (2020) Zu Quirke's debut feature film, stars Sydney Sweeny (Euphoria), Madison Iseman (Annabelle Comes Home), and Ivan Shaw (The Cleaning Lady). This film was an installment to Welcome to the Blumhouse, an anthological horror series Blumhouse produced in collaboration with Prime video for Amazon Prime Originals.
**SPOILER ALERT** Michael Meyers is back, but we all knew he would return, or rather that he never left. For the twelfth installment of the franchise director David Gordon’s Halloween Kills is a fun ride, and at times funny, but at best it felt like nothing more than a filler. I’ll be honest and say that I am not the largest fan of Michael Myers and his story, while I can appreciate a good slasher film, this story was not what I expected in the least bit.
a modern graveyard smash
When I hear graveyard smash, my first thought is of the music at the Halloween party the kids' parents went to in Disney's Hocus Pocus. This playlist though, contains music different than what we've been accustomed to over the years, the '90s especially. Music and horror have evolved, and the slow, dark and heavy beats that follow reflect just that. These songs are sure to get you moving, ladies and vamps, so grab your tequila and turn this up underneath the moon. Happy Halloween ya freaks!
Could we find a better metaphor?
"We seldom think of conversation as commitment, but it is... Coping with a lifetime of change is a struggle, but through a lifetime of change we will only experience ourselves as full persons only to the degree that we allow ourselves that commitment to others which keeps us in creative dialogue." by Mwalimu Imara, in Dying as the Last Stage of Growth
