ken russell’s the devils (1971) for criterion WHEN????
Clearly cut and reworked to shit during the pandemic. Why bother giving these projects to black filmmakers if you’re just gonna neuter them in post-production? I feel so bad for the person who did all the really cool shadow puppetry that got shoved to the credits. What a mess.
Hooptober #20: 8 decades (1980s). 5/8
2 haunted house films. 2/2
Okay I’m kinda stretching it calling this a haunted house movie since it isn’t technically the house itself that’s haunted, however I already committed myself to watching this after Outer Space. Barbara Hershey is great as a single-mother who’s constantly being gaslit by men trying to convince her the Invisible Man/Men isn’t brutally raping her and that it’s just good old female hysteria. I wanted the main psychiatrist guy who wanted to get into Barbara Hershey’s pants to get his nuts bitten off by a ghost.
