    "Onibaba" (1964)

    Kaneto Shindo's "Onibaba" (1964) starts off as historical drama about a young woman and her mother-in-law who will do anything to survive in war torn feudal Japan. The women murder soldiers and sell their belongings for food. The women get along until the return of Hachi who tells them their son/husband has died in battle. He also unleashes passionate desire in the women. The mother in law encounters as mysterious samurai wearing a demon mask which leads to a terrifying climax. Shindo really knows how to use the frame and his cinematographer creates haunting black and white images. The tall reeds by the river become another character watching as the humans go mad with lust. The sequence in which the young woman runs into the demon is the stuff of cinematic nightmares and reminds me of the best of the Val Lewton films .

    " Devil Witch Child" (1975) directed by Armando de Ossorio who created the scary Blind Dead movies. This Spanish production originally titled "La Endemonida" is a laughable "The Exorcist" copy about a Susan a young girl who is possessed by the evil spirit of an old witch.The movie is not helped by horrendous dubbed English but I doubt the original Spanish would have helped the crazy plot and cheesy fx. But for fans of psychotronic cinema and Euro horror is a must. There is a horrible print on Amazon prime and I do wish someone could release this classic on special edition DVD- are you listening Scream Factory

    Straight Films That Are Actually Gay.

    "Spider Man: Far From Home" Peter Parker( Tom Holland) is down on the dumps because he missed his "daddy" Tony Stark /Iron Man. He goes on an European class trip and meets Quentin Beck /Misterio ( Jake Gyllenhaal) . Tom and Jake have real chemistry. There are some who see parallel between these two and the couple in "Call Me By Your Name" but this is a Marvel movie so it's not going there- well I'm sure there is plenty of Peter/Misterio fan fiction out there

    You must see the original film - a true horror classic with that still shocking ending- curiously the lame trailer does not mention Christopher Lee who gives a great performance
  11. Yes but maybe about a hundred which are really worth watching

    I hated "Heredatary" but was curious about this one- the trailer is very effective- but when I found out it was 2.5 hours long I'll wait for it to play on cable- the plot sounds more like "The Wicker Man" than "Rosemary's Baby"
  14. I really enjoy reading your reviews of the Naschy films

    "Anabelle Comes Home" (2019) the evil doll is back but she has very little to do is this latest chapter in "The Conjuring" universe. The doll is locked up in a specially blessed cabinet until a nosy baby sitter lets her out and she unleashes some very bland scares. Vera Farmiga and Patrick Wilson ( who should be in better movies) appear in the effective prologue . Anabelle was scary in the previous and much better "Anabelle:Creation" but after this boring film she really belongs in the attic.

    "Suspiria" (2018)

    "Suspiria" (2018) is what happens when a talented director who has no idea how to make a horror movie tries to remake a classic. Luca Guadagnino has just made the acclaimed adaptation of "Call Me By Your Name" when he decided to try to redo Dario Argento's masterpiece. The film borrows the main story an American (Dakota Johson) attends a prestigious German dance academy were supernatural forces are at work. The new script adds some pointless subplots about German terrorist which go nowhere . Tilda Swinton plays the obviously creepy dance master. The movie is about a half an hour two long. Guadagnino lacks Argento's talent for creating terror and suspense. The preposterous climax seems to take place a disco in hell but a lot of pointless gore and gallons of blood a good horror film does not make.
