quick update...

welcome to Cinepolis, Coryn, and hurluberlu!
Psychotronicbeatnik and Traveller are still duking it out on the lead, though the former appears to be widening the gap a bit. Meanwhile, jeroeno has surpassed blueboybob and is firmly occupying the third spot. Tarris1 has also made some headway and is approaching bob's right flank on the outside. All others are holding their respective positions...

04. I compagni, by Mario Moniccelli (1963) 8/10

A beautiful social drama on a strike in late nineteenth century Italy, and how it affects all of those who live the event. Both funny and human in its approach.

05. Il Nido, by Roberto De Feo (2019) 4/10

Great production values, but a silly plot that rests entirely on a silly secret that gets revealed too late in the movie...

It is hard to believe that the great Ruggero Deodato was behind this generic slasher - though there are a few memorable kills and well-directed moments of tension in the mix. Claudio Simonetti's taunting music score is excellent too, but underused. The screenplay is just pitiful though, with none of the characters worrying about their friends disappearing (simply assuming they're making out) and the editing (reactions when running etc) is jumpy.

5. The Psychic (1977)
6. Bodycount (1986)

7. Suspiria (1977) REVISION

Image

Revisited for the first time in 15+ years, this stacked up well. The solution is sadly far less interesting than the central murder mystery and the film has a few too many dialogue-heavy scenes, but as an exercise in atmosphere and creating a growing sense of unease, this is a success through and through. From the stylish architecture, to the flashes of neon lighting, to the semi-vocal music score, the film is an absolute audiovisual assault on the senses.

8. Suspiria (2018)

Image

Luca Guadagnino makes some curious changes here, giving more attention to the dance routines and practice sessions; there is also a bigger focus on those behind the goings-on. This in turn leads to less creative death sequences though and far less atmosphere; the drab locations and toned down audiovisual aesthesics pale massively against Argento. A dancer's body unnaturally twisting and turning as Johnson dances was a real 'whoa' bit though.

9. Maciste in Hell (1925)

With several reels of the film lost, the story often feels choppy here and as a narrative, Maciste is only so-so at best. It also takes over twenty minutes for the protagonist to arrive at the titular location. Upon arrival though, the film massively picks up with lots of imagination and creativity at hand from foggy scenery, to special effects that allow characters to fly, to revealing outfits for the female demons of Hell. There is also a newfangled television.
