Great movie, really sinister and unsettling. A former girlfriend of mine really got angry with me for suggesting we go watch this film. The ending (no spoilers) really got under her skin. it's that kind of film, and actor Christopher Lee said it was one of the finest films he ever worked on.I watches The Wicker Man years ago and it's my version of horror. Never want to see a film like that again. I don't have the 'nerves 'for such films.
ooohh, I'd forgotten that gem! Instant goosebumps when I read the comment. Stephen King is good, yes, but I think Clive Barker is better- much more imaginative than Steve-O. I think King's best is "IT", but Barker's best is "Imajica", not a horror at all. (Also has a nod to Gurdjieff in "The Great and Secret Show"). But for out-and-out mind-numbing horror, almost anything by James Herbert. The first time I read 'The Dark" I slept with the light on for three nights- I was 20-21 at the time! Also he has some really interesting ideas, maybe even unique. "Nobody True" is a story where a man is murdered while having an OOBE... first sentence- "I wasn't there when I died." And "Others" is truly horrific, as parts are based on reality.* The hero is a hunchback. First sentence- "My redemption began in hell."Jacob’s Ladder, one of the most disturbing I’ve ever watched. Actually kind of based on real life events. As for reading can’t go wrong with Steven King.
To stare infinity in the face without flinching, one must know evil and not fear it. The depths of human imagination can be incredibly dark.
That being said these days I mostly focus on the evil happening around us, the dark heart dawning. Paying attention to reality left and right. OSIT.
