    Lord of Illusions

    ★★★★★

    Confession. This is my top Clive Barker film. I remember seeing the VHS-box for it in local video stores all over Munich back in 1997 — and I instantly fell in love with it. A lighthearted, neoromantic Clive Barker film mixing '40's noir and dark fantasy: Wow!

    Even today, I catch myself watching scenes over and over again just to gaze at the Puritan and his wicked crew. Lord of Illusions is laced with that magical, elusive 90s-aura that so…

    "Going into taboo areas, forbidden areas, is classically what Horror movies do!" ________ Clive Barker

    Consequently, Denis Villeneuve’s follow-up isn’t anywhere as deep, mythically charged as the '82-version. And yet, it has enough guts and dignity to summon the original's spirit. That's what's…

    First, I'm generally sick of kids in horror. Second, I'm like super-skeptical when a genre flick garners high praise from all-round. So I was quite mixed about this. But in all honesty, VVitch truly deserves much of its hype.

    From the first frame I was entranced by the atmospheric blackness. More than just a horror film, VVitch is an experience: A descent into the darkness. Pure and uncompromised. Ambiguous and absorbing. Simple but brutally tense. Even the soundtrack is stellar…
