HORROR FILM STILLS / THE IRON ROSE


Every October I crave some sweet 70′s horror, not cause the movies were good, but because sometimes they looked good. My 70′s horror technique involves watching with the sound off and listening to top 40′s hitz instead. So, I think the plot of this movie goes something like this: mysterious 70′s lady hangs out on a beach and finds an iron rose. She’s not into it. This lady catches the eye of some dude at a party, then they hang out and run around and to go to a big graveyard. There are weird clowns and hobos and old ladies in the graveyard. The couple goes into a crypt to bang. Then they can’t find their way out of the graveyard and run around for 1/2 the movie. Then they do it on some skeletons in a pit, and then the girl locks the dude in the crypt. Then she does a lot of night ballet and runs around the graveyard, and pictures herself on the beach from the beginning, naked, and knocks over a bunch of iron crosses. She’s stoked. Then she climbs into the crypt, the end.

Also: who wants me to turn this into an American Horror Story S3 recap liveblog?

A STORY OF THE FOREST


This Ukrainian film seems to meet most of my weird old movie requirements, at least visually. Too bad I will probably never see it! Made by Yuri Ilyenko in 1983, it popped up in the livejournal film stills community that I will follow forever, apparently called Mavka or A Story of the Forest. Searching for it online leads to a lot of dead ends, or just more screenshots from the livejournal post that have been shared on tumblr or other sites. Definitely fulfills my forest/naked girl/weird ritualistic costume needs, ha ha. I went into the woods today to go mushroom hunting but it was too early, the ground wasn’t dry enough yet. Found a few soggy lobster mushrooms that were too gross to take, and one really great looking yellow capped dude that would probably trypppp you out, or maybe just kill you. I’ll be back for the edible ones again later, hopefully!

TRENDIEST VAMPIRES EVER


Recently dalas pointed out to me that the vampire club scene at the beginning of Blade looks super trendy today with the 90′s club revival style and he was really right.*

*those horrible man shirts excluded, I HOPE
