That's fine. Absolute classic + Vampires sounds good enough to me.
Pretty sure that
; recommended the movie to me a while ago. I had his recommendations saved on a sheet, but lost everything when my computer crashed. I think it was ether him or you that told me about that black and white Christopher Walken movie that had vampires in it but was more philosophical / meditative than straight up horror. It was very different but I enjoyed that.
Aye, The Addiction
. Forever eternal. That's a good way to walk into Only Lovers Left Alive
; granted this is more Romance with the meditative, and say The Addiction
was more singular living with the "disease"/vice.
is another great modernist take on vampires; if you haven't see it. It's a riff on Dracula's Daughter
, set to 90's black & white grainy existentialism. My favorite incarnation of Van Helsing to date within it, too.
SCREAM marathon. Nice.
Got all three done day one! Had to squeeze In the Mouth of Madness late so I watched half of it past 12am but whatever. Absolutely adored all three; instant favourites and I can't picture the next time I'll watch 3 movies I like that much in the one day. Probably only going to be able to get two in today. Thinking Bird with the Crystal Plumage and.....I dunno. Too many choices. Maybe I'll make my first dip into Rob Zombie and see House of 1000 Corpses. Oh my god it's October. THIS IS NOT REALITY.
Sam Neill insanity scale continues to be elite.
First dip into Rob Zombie
It's not reality, it must be Matrix. Or just October. But possibly still Matrix.
Argento's debut is a brilliant one. Speaking of, I just watched my first Giallo of the month: The Strange Vice of Mrs. Wardh
. Another knockout for Sergio Martino & it was basically another one of those "slashers before it was a slasher" goldmines. And Edwige Fenech is in it, is naked, but commanding. Her eyes never seeming to close, and there's a large product of brutal sex sleaze at the heart of it all. I'm doing just fine so far.
