    European Cinema Binge #13 (Denmark)

    A bunch of college-aged students head to Sweden for midsummer.Β It begins with a grieving woman struggling with the complex relationships in her life, and a suicide…wait…but this isn’t Ari Aster’s popular daylight folk horror…

    Indeed, (indeedn’t?) it’s a different film, an earlier Danish teen drama/horror flick and very wobbly cabin in the woods thriller. There is a tense gas station encounter, a near miss with the town weirdo, a montage of splashing in the lake:…

    European Cinema Binge #12 (Germany)

    Daring and obscene, Antibodies is not for the faint of heart. A dark rollercoaster of a crime-thriller that makes The Silence of the Lambs look like a tea cup ride, Antibodies shows fearlessness in its portrayal of perversion, moral corruption and devotion to religion.

    The German thriller follows a policeman, Michael Martens, from a small, religious country town, haunted by the murder of a 12 year old girl. The suspect, a pedophilic creep known as…

    β€œβ€¦funny how you live with people in your mind. In spite of you, they are always the same. And you live with them happily. Never wanting anything to change”

    The Tale captures the experience of looking back at your past under a new light, with new information and the power of hindsight.Β 

    Memories can change, they can be easy to lose, and fragmented, but memories can also be stubborn when reality moves its harsh lens over a long ago forgotten…

    I am convinced this is the most perfect movie I have seen. Dario Argento’s most celebrated giallo film, Deep Red is an impressive thriller and compelling mystery. It features unsettling scenes and an equally unsettling (yet funky) score from Goblin. There’s plenty of gore for traditional horror fans, but there’s a real story and some interesting themes.Β 

    Argento has a message about women and family.Β It shines through that a liberated woman can be both badass…

    I watched this again to try and conquer my fear of literally everything in this movie and it still bugs me the HECK out. Intimate and terrifying, it still shakes me.

    Definitely recommend, flies under the radar for no reason.
