It's so terrible, so absurd, so ridiculous that it's great fun to watch.
It's amazing how so many people miss that that is a satire on crass commercialism and manufactured stardom. Many critics mistake the faux product placement for real product placement. If you get the meta. this is a great, funny film, not some kids' movie. Also some good music.
This is a fresh witch tale, and it looks and feels like a 17th century folktale.
This film is a good shocker, with most of the creepiness subdued and sparing with the gotchas. What interesting is the lack of monstrous special effects and use of quieter ideas of terror at a Djinn that wants to inhabit the daughter of the heroine in the movie. It's also a cool look into its context. This is an Iranian film shot in Jordan taking place during the Iran-Iraq war of the 1980s when Teheran is being bombed and the revolutionary police are enforcing female modesty laws. You'll find scares and such, along with social commentary, feminism, and family drama. What's not to like? The dubbing. Some of the translation and all of the voices in English could be better. Still a good one to watch. It's mild, so it's suitable to mixed company (that is, people who don't normally like horror).
This British cult classic is simply one of the best horror movies ever. It's creepy and campy. An uptight policeman come to a remote island to investigate the disappearance of a girl and discovers a strange cultish society of... Wiccans? Jesus-hippies? Pagans? Some combination of these things and in fact, he's been lured there to be a part of their freaky nature cult. It's fun, it's weird, the dialog is stilted, they've got animal masks. Plus Brit Eckland's erotic dance to the spacey, oh-so-70s "Willow's Song."
Warning: there is an American remake of this, starring Nic Gage which should be strenuously avoided. I was eager to see it because I am such a fan of the original but it's absolutely terrible, even by Nic Gage standards.
