Roberto San Sebastián’s so-called horror-comedy is a complete disaster. In fact, The Night of the Virgin is one of the worst films that I’ve ever seen.

Low-budget indie horror comedy Psychotic! is a hit-and-miss affair that starts off with a scene showing a great deal of promise, but that soon gets bogged down in attempts at stoner jokes and satirising millennials.

Fairy tales and horror films have always had a lot in common. Besides the obvious similarities in imagery, both genres rely on a set of conventions that the audience is familiar with, and often draw on the inherent fears and desires associated with adolescence. If it is true that most lasting trauma is rooted in …Read More

Suspiria – released in 1977 – is widely regarded to be Dario Argento’s masterwork, a rich tapestry of heady visuals, psychoanalytic dream-theory, and deep, esoteric messages.
