    ★★★★★

    I liked it the first time I saw it some years ago, but I ended up really loving it this time.

    It's cryptic, it's full of aesthetics I absolutely adore, it's full of phenomenal music, and it's edited brilliantly. The exceptional use of sound in the film coupled with the story of a sound engineer at a strange Italian film studio works so well together, it's definitively become my favorite horror film of the 2010's.

    Great gothic horror by the master.

    While I still wouldn't say this is my favorite Bava film, I can definitively understand why it's regarded among his best work. The visuals are absolutely amazing, with a killer opening that still holds up today.
    The rest of the film is a bit uneven, with some great and truly chilling parts, and some silly parts that feel very dated, even for the 60's. The effects are still really good n' gruesome, but Barbara Steel definitively steals the show with her horrifyingly hypnotic gaze, tho.

    ★★★★★

    One of the most unconventional horror films I've ever seen, if you can call it a horror film. It blends genres and conflicting moods until it's something that feels foreign and strange in every aspect, which really fits with the main character's confusion, repulsion and temptation he's feeling faced with the strange culture of the island.

    Highly recommended.

  • Halloween III: Season of the Witch

    Halloween III: Season of the Witch

    ★★★★

    Extremely underrated sequel without Michael Myers that's actually way better than the later sequels with Michael Myers.
    The story is inventive, with incredibly high stakes and genuine tension, the characters are fun, especially Conal Cochran, one of my favorite movie villains, the synth-soundtrack and the cinematography go well together, and the effects are absolutely gruesome in the best way possible.
