The old sport at Moviejawn.com - a place that I dabble in film criticism. I need to watch more movies.
“Therefore I advise you to be ill.”
Still too many inter-titles but this flick did move along at a faster pace than Hunchback.
Things that pleased me this film:
-Phantoms flappy mask
-Erik’s written correspondences
-the Cellar’s production design and the mirror room
-Erik’s ball attire and skull cane
-the end credits which informed the viewer it was repeating it again to please those that wished to know who the performers were
"It is not a robe, it is a Kimono."
I was pleasantly and surprisingly charmed by this film. Before this, I have not met an Eli Roth flick that I was fond of.
Things that were YES:
-the phrase: Parlor Magician
-Cate. Cate. Cate.
-The weirdness of the child
-The theme of it being acceptable to be weird.
-Jack Black: I am a fan of you.
-All of Cate's costumes
-The production design: i loved the house
