The Howl

Sunday, January 24th, 2010 by shuizmz -

The Howl   lurlo 82x120 reviews drama Director: Tinto Brass
Writer: Tinto Brass, Gian Carlo Fusco, Franco Longo and Gigi Proietti
Release year: 1970
Italian title: L’Urlo

Interesting to watch.

Director Tinto Brass has created a film that I will never, to my last dying breath, ever understand. This is pegged as a “surreal cult classic” and it most surely was surreal and has enough bizarre and incredibly sensational scenes full of artistic shots. In addition, a warped scenario featuring random mind-fuck sets in which I truly had no idea what the hell was going on. Seriously, Brass himself could explain each scene as I viewed it and I would still never “get it”.

The Sinful Dwarf

The Sinful Dwarf   sinful dwarf severin 84x120 reviews horror drama Writer: Vidal Raski
Director: Harlan Asquith & William Mayo
Release year: 1973
Danish title: Dvaergen

Great evil can sometimes come in very small packages….

I have waited quite a while to see this film. I do not exactly know why I wanted to see it so badly, considering I have a great distaste and fear towards dwarves, little people, midgets….whatever the hell they are called. I guess for someone who is well over 6 feet tall, it makes sense that my fears are of things that are tiny.
