Sample text

What is curious about this film is that it subverts classical horror to provide an approach of staggering modernity. If horror comes from the weird, the exception to normality, Browning changes the process until his freaks end up being normal, and normal beings become monstrous. This rare film is a must-see. • - 5 - The Bride of Frankenstein (USA, 1935) James Whale A sequel to the founding Doctor Frankenstein, also by James Whale, this version surpasses the first in terms of art direction, character composition and suggestive power.

Here, Herzog takes on the task of producing a mysterious and wonderful job, galvanized in a rare beauty. He chooses certain of Murnau’s scenes and recreates them by lengthening their dramatic tempo, producing a hallucinating journey through the modest inferno of a shameful and sad vampire. Klaus Kinsky’s mesmeric performance ratifies the vampire’s eternal loneliness. Herzog managed to breath new life into Murnau’s plot for sound and color cinema and, by the same token, rekindle original expressionism.

23 - The Wicker Man (UK, 1973) Robin Hardy A provocative and somewhat weird British cult film, it smartly analyses the double attribute of religions: essential for human hope and, at the same time, cause of social conflicts stemming from intolerance and impositions. Neil LaBute directed a remake starring Nicolas Cage in 2006. • - 24 - The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (USA, 1974) Tobe Hooper This is Hooper’s own independent production. The film involves two brothers who undertake a trip with some friends to investigate the presumed desecration of a family member’s tomb in Texas.
