Belgium horror

Calvaire (The Ordeal), 2004

Director: Fabrice Du Welz
Stars: Laurent Lucas, Brigitte Lahaie, Gigi Coursigny

CALVARIRE’S (THE ORDEAL) story revolves about a singer called Marc, traveling from one gig to the other, his van broken and get caught in an small hotel middle of nowhere, kidnapped, tortured, abused and “womanized” as a hillbilly wife. Things go even worse from there. This movie borrows from many others; more obvious from Texas CHAINSWA MASSACRE, DELIVERANCE and MISERY.

The best part by far was the piano scene at the local tavern. The music was macabre and artistic, and the dancing seemed like it was part of someone’s bad dream.

The scene where the group of local evil animal fornicators dance themselves into a frenzy though is a total classic. If this movie gets seen kids in future years will certainly do this dance. I think it happens on or about chapter 13 in the movie, it’s almost worth getting it just for this scene alone. One of a kind. The rest of the film is pretty forgettable ultimately or not really good when it comes right down to it.

Swedish horror films

Låt den rätte komma in (Let the Right One In), 2008

Director: Tomas Alfredson
Stars: Kåre Hedebrant, Lina Leandersson, Per Ragnar

Tomas Alfredson’s “Let The Right One In” is an original, dark, twisted and gory horror fantasy, one of those special films that are hard to classify. Not merely an exercise in style, his film is a brilliant piece of amoral storytelling, and even if some characters’ actions defy any logic or common sense (I don’t wanna spoil any moment here, but you’ll know what I mean when the first revenge moment of the story happens), they seem to be there just to remind you that this is just a fantasy tale (but not for the little ones!). Oskar (Kåre Hedebrant) is a 12 year-old bullied boy that befriends and develops an innocent crush on his new neighbor, Eli (Lina Leandersson), who happens to be a vampire. What comes next is a twisted tale of revenge and pubescent love, made with visual flair (the swimming pool scene is already classic), creative directing and impressive performances by the young pair of protagonists.

It has something big and stunning about this lovely storyline to rivet my attention from the beginning to the end. Moreover, the cinematography and atmosphere in this film are undeniably superb. The chemistry between two preteen protagonists is outstanding and very believable. Everything in this film is well-made in synchronization.

This movie does the same thing with vampirism — what would it be like if there was a vampire in 1970’s Sweden? The most interesting thing about the picture to me is that it makes some really awful stuff seem sympathetic. The leading boy sends a bully to the E/R, apparently having ruined one of his ears for life. The leading girl kills people. But we’re totally on their side.

Hong Kong horror

Hong Kong have nice horror movies filmed, made in 70’s but new one, after 2000. Here are several of them, in short:

Lik Wong (Riki-Oh: The Story of Ricky), 1991

Director: Ngai Choi Lam
Stars: Siu-Wong Fan, Mei Sheng Fan, Ka-Kui Ho

The plot has Ricky, a kid with super strength being thrown into prison for killing the man responsible for the girl he loved. This is a corrupt privatized prison of the future where the prisoners are nothing more than cheap labor. Ricky instantly gets under the skin of the wardens, the guards and the leaders of the prison population. Cartoon violence with bloody gory consequences ensue. Body parts go flying as Ricky fights to stay alive and help his fellow prisoners.

This film could be seen as the Chinese version of “Braindead” aka “Dead Alive”: a Bruce Lee-like guy named Ricky, who´s talented with supernatural powers, fights his way through a corrupt prison and leaves a trail of blood and guts behind him. For sure, “Story of Ricky” is a very violent and gory flick, but everything in it is so exaggerated that no one should take it too serious: there is gut-strangulation, people in a meat grinder and for the showdown the leader of the prison mutates to a giant Kung Fu-fighting monster..! However, this film is so funny that you will laugh your heads off! Larded with typical Asian humor “Story of Ricky” is one of the definite cult movies that were shot in the last decade! If you had fun with it, try also to find director Ngai Kai Lam´s Indiana Jones-fantasy-action-gore-adventure “The Seventh Curse” (Check out the review which I wrote under my former pseudonym “Daywalker”..!) starring Chow Yun Fat, which contains nearly the same plenty of gore and curious ideas as this one has! Two great films that would make a great double-feature!!

Spanish horror movies

Several Spanish horror films here. Made in Spain and in spanish language.

[Rec], 2007

Directors: Jaume Balagueró, Paco Plaza
Acting: Manuela Velasco, Ferran Terraza, Jorge-Yamam Serrano

This movie played after Atonement in a double bill at the Venice Film Festival. Within fifteen minutes the previously full cinema was half empty with people filing out of the auditorium in panicked droves. Those who stayed were treated to the proverbial roller-coaster ride and walked out of the Sala Biennale having shared a deeply traumatic yet brilliant experience. REC had me literally screaming with terror and enjoyment.
