Faust

Faust

(1994)
13 months ago via Rotten Tomatoes

Watching this on psilocybin mushrooms proved enriching. The imaginative weaving of the various Faustus legends (as told by Goethe and Marlowe) speaks volumes about Svankmajer's original retellings. By combining his incredible stop-motion animation genius with old-school Czech puppetry, Faust becomes a rabbit hole of unseen worlds, as Svankmajer films are an experience in itself. Blending the occult, Prague and devil puppets, this is easily one of Svankmajer's greatest masterpieces.

E tu vivrai nel terrore - L'aldilą (The Beyon...

(1981)
13 months ago via Rotten Tomatoes

Said to be Lucio Fulci's best film, The Beyond is a classic blood-gushing occult-horror film set in an elderly Louisiana plantation compact with supernatural gateways linking the dead with the living. The best part about this film is its mention of the Book of Eibon (Liber Ivonis), a scarce occult volume taken from the dream worlds of Lovecraft. Definitely worth a watch, even if just for the blood-curdling death scenes...

Helter Skelter (Massacre in Hollywood)

Helter Skelter (Massacre in Hollywood)

(1976)
13 months ago via Rotten Tomatoes

Based on the original Bugliosi book, and from the perspective of Vincent Bugliosi himself, taking the role as narrator, this film attempts to break down the events in a Law and Order-esue manner. Though not as bewitching as the Helter Skelter book itself, the film is tolerable enough, with good acting and believable enough actors. Certainly the best Charles Manson depiction, played by Steve Railsback. Being a Manson aficionado, the film has its moments from a dramatized standpoint. The best available footage related to The Family would have to be the 1973 documentary entitled 'MANSON', containing actual footage, interviews and music.

In Cold Blood

In Cold Blood

(1967)

A beautifully filmed dramatization of the Clutter family murders. Perry Smith and Dick Hickock are portrayed as likable characters, based on Capote's novel.

The Deliberate Stranger

The Deliberate Stranger

By far the best Bundy adaptation thus far. Though rather lengthy, Bundy's story is certainly an interesting one, and The Deliberate Stranger does it justice.
