Indolent spinster weekly report #7

Indolent Spinster weekly report #7




My Ten Favourite, as in most often watched and enjoyed, horror movies.  In the order in which I thought of them, They are all of about equal value as far as my experience and enjoyment of them runs.

Frankenstein & the Bride Of Frankenstein
I cannot separate these two films, and for decades only ever watched them together. Very unlike the book.

Alien
Easily the best Ridley Scott film, more atmosphere and real scares than 100 other   films.

American Werewolf In London
is for me like The Breakfast Club of Horror movies, and pretty much the only decent werewolf movie ever.

Vampyr 
So much art. more style in any 5 second clip than all the super hero movies you have ever seen. 

Fear No Evil 
silliest most on my list, the most over the top and ridiculous, terrible... awesome.

The Shining
Still scares the bejeezuz outta me, atmosphere and creepy af, for me this movie has aged really well. i like it more now than ever.

Texas Chainsaw Massacre
I dare you to watch this with headphones on, sometime, it will mess you up.

The Fly 
Cronenberg and Trans Folks, We know Body Horror, Brundlefly!

The Exorcist
genuine horror is achieved over and over in this brilliantly paced film. the director’s cut isn’t terrible, but i prefer the pace of the theatrical cut.


I meant to add Suspiria. So, honourable mention.

Last indolent Spinster Almost Daily Report from DOXA 2018

My last laconic lazy one take video chatting about the last couple days of the festival DOXA 2018


The Indolent Spinster weekly Report #12

Not so weekly as monthly lately, but I've been back working at the video store 5 daze a week, is my excuse, getting my artistic rhythm used to working and living within my means again, with no credit to back me up anymore. so far so good. Today I made a short film, and i feel the ideas creeping into my consciousness again. When i am stressed about money/life, my artistic outflow is more in the graphic design/drawing painting world. Once i start to feel safe again, with money, the words flow back slowly.

so anyway, here is my small take on the world right now. we do not give each other space to breathe. as simple as that. there are no good reasons. we just do unto each other, horrors. there are lots of reasons not to. and none that stand in the light with hate in heart. nope. put down your weapons, words, opinions, facts, fake news, and give each other space to breathe.





The Indolent Spinster Almost Daily Report #1 (from DOXA)

I am trying a new thing. As I have a pass to DOXA the documentary film festival that i worked at last year and the year before, as well as having been on the screening committee this year and last... I thought I would do what i failed to do last year which was make a video blog report as often as i could, talking about the films i see, and my experience of the festival.

DOXA

here's the DOXA link. the film is playing again (and already sold out, but you can go early and get in the 'rush 'line) Tuesday the 8th
