I didn't even consider the possibility of the Dark Stranger not having his way with her. Wouldn't be much of an offering. However, there's no signs of impregnation. Maybe it's something more insidious, a corrupting force that rots her from the inside and will eventually make her a puppet of the Dark Stranger. The ritual was certainly more civilized than the one from Dagon though, which was almost sacrifice with the ritual dagger and all. Maybe there's a form of mind control involved, she didn't resist. Or maybe it's just fear itself.

Maybe the commentary track could shed some light on it. I sent you some info about versions of the film that may be of interest to you. And some news. All in your PM inbox.

Just watched 5 bambole per la luna d'agosto (Five Dolls for an August Moon) by Mario Bava.

Believe it or not, the house in pic related is a matte, which had to be painted by Bava himself. The man was a true master of the camera, I wouldn't have known it was a matte if I didn't read about it. Looking at it in a still picture I can tell, but barely.

It's amazing the visuals he achieved with the tight budget he had as well.

And funnily enough, there's a spinning bed in the rich man's pad, just like the one in Body Double which I watched last night. Edwige Fenech and Justine Gall absolutely steal the show here with their stunning beauty. I'm specially smitten with Justine, she has angelical features.

The story has some very clever twists that I never saw coming and some themes of voyeurism so I tend to think that De Palma must have seen it and been inspired by it, there are some very weird coincidences.

And I think, get this, that it might have influenced Scream Queens too. There's some interesting situations that appear in both: the vigil in the same room because no one knows who the killer is, the decision to store the stiffs in the freezer until figuring out what to do much like it was done with Ms. Bean after boiling her face off in oil.

I'm most impressed by how little cheapness can be perceived. It doesn't look like the production nightmare it was where there wasn't even enough money to provide clothing for the actors. And the sound isn't bad at all either. Bava had to edit this one himself, and he did an amazing job on that too. The film really doesn't look bad at all. The one bad part I could point out is the terrible music at the party, distorted funk similar to the one in Fulci's Una lucertola con la pelle di donna.

One thing I noticed is that Bava seemed reluctant to display the J&B labels, most of the shots you see the bottle but the visible label is the rear one. Until I saw the red letters, I was wondering if they hadn't sponsored the film and had only been included for familiarity's Post too long. Click here to view the full text.

Come discuss 80s horror.

>inb4 this is not sapphic. The horror genre in particular has been far more inclusive of queer themes than most and for longer than the current year fad of being allies found in today's mainstream offerings so suck a dick if you have a problem with it.

>The idea that they are in constant, unbearable pain, and that only eating brains can help dull their agony for a moment is incredibly dark. Normally you have reanimated corpses who can’t feel anything and just shamble around, but here they are very intelligent, fast and they have a motivation too!

Doesn't it remind you a bit of the Black Skulls from Mandy?

>Interestingly there are quite a few connections and parallels to Mortuary from 2005 directed by Tobe Hooper. Hooper was originally set to direct The Return of the Living Dead.

Sounds almost like a remake.

>Swell! I’ll rewatch it whenever you get around to it. Already got some notes written down, but this film really deserves a closer look.

I hope to do it in the next few days.

Wow, it's almost the exact same as Carol's from Una lucertola con la pelle di donna. Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.

Just saw Brian De Palma's Body Double (1984), a film I had on my backlog for a long time. It's basically an American giallo, like Dressed to Kill. Honestly, I found it a bit underwhelming in comparison, specially given the hype around it. Some parts dragged a bit. I don't remember exactly where but at some point I felt tempted to up the playing speed. I think it was during one of the phobia scenes. The opening is genius and I love the self-conscious use of mattes and smoke that look obvious yet produce a wonderful juxtaposition. It's classic De Palma, he did something similar in Scarface (1983). The way it opens was genius and had me confused until it was clear what was going on. Had a good scare too, mainly driven by it taking me off-guard. And like some gialli, it's hard to make complete sense of the plot. There's some dreamlike ambiguity aided by non-linearity. I'm unsure of how to interpret the ending as a whole. There were also some apparent plotholes that might have been clues, like the key card. I thought it was a policeman returning it to Gloria but I guess it was someone from the alarm company giving her a new one. The Indian wouldn't have needed it because he had to have his own key but it would have given away a lot. The perp completely surprised me. As for the ending, my personal interpretation is that the coffin scene played in his head but what came after was real. I wonder how much this influenced Conspiracy Theory. Jake gets called a "conspiracy nut" here and Jerry (Mel Gibson) was rather voyeuristic, watching Alice through the blinds of her window on his way to becoming her protector.

And as gialloesque as it is, it would be stupid to ignore its number one influence: Alfred Hitchcock's Rear Window. It's so obvious I won't comment further on it though.

Overall, a good film but overhyped. I can't really point out what it was but it left me unsatiated. I think it's not as visually stylish as it could have been. Don't get me wrong, it wasn't ugly. But it could have been even more stylish. And for its infamy, I didn't find it particularly scandalous. Dressed to Kill felt more scandalous to me and it was relePost too long.

Also a couple things I forgot to mention:

The struggling actor Jake has a role in a film titled Vampire's Kiss. Nicolas Cage would later lead a real life film with the same title, one that almost cost him his career. I found that funny, specially having seen Vampire's Kiss.

De Palma included the classic therapy session often featured in gialli, but he gave it a clever twist: here it's for all intents and purposes a therapy session, but delivered in the form of an acting class, with an audience of fellow students. I think this snugly fits in the theme of voyeurism permeating the entire film. He's baring his mind and soul while others watch.

Interesting choice, most of the time it's an economic decision rather than an artistic one. But I guess he has a point, emulsions do evolve. Specially now that 35mm is a specialty format requested by a few directors because most people just do digital nowadays.

Saw a thread (https://tvch.moe/tv/res/110125.html) on tvch about Ammonite starring Kate Winslet & Saoirse Ronan so I decided to check out the trailer. Did not expect it to look this bleak and dreary. The trailer failed to impress me, and I hope they didn’t go all in the much-hyped sex scene to compensate. After Carol, another period piece sapphic romance film, this just felt very bleak and colourless.

I too made a sapphic discovery today, with Bella Heathcote in it to make it even better. A biographic film about the creator of Wonder Woman and the two women that loved him and each other, and who inspired the character. The film is titled Professor Marston and the Wonder Women.

Interdasting. I see that the film is written & directed by Angela Robinson, who wrote & directed the 2003 sapphic short film D.E.B.S., and the equally sapphic feature length version from 2004. D.E.B.S. is a spoof of spy thrillers, starring Sara Foster & Jordana Brewester, and the feature film in particular has that Y2K æsthetic I adore. Not to mention Sara Foster is absolutely drop-dead gorgeous.

It's well known that the professor was a kinky fucker too, things like the golden lasso that forces you to tell the truth are based on fetishes, probably some variation of femdom. And he was living the dream, ménage-á-trois. So I expect the film to be super hot. The second woman dated him with his wife's consent, and they took her to live with them. She and the wife soon became lovers. To avoid scandal, they told people she was the nanny.

By the way I also replied to your PMs. Did you get the draft I needed help with or did the weekly flush kill it? My inbox was emptied I think on Saturday but I don't know if it's that messages older than a week get flushed or the entire inbox once a week. The latter is retarded but I wouldn't be surprised if some galaxy brain at the administration came up with that bs.

There's no earthly way of knowing

which direction we are going

There's no knowing where we're rowing

or which way the river's flowing

Is it raining? Is it snowing?

Is a hurricane a blowing?

Not a spec of light is showing

so the danger must be growing

Are the fires of hell a glowing?

Is the grisly reaper mowing?

Yes! The danger must be growing

for the rowers keep on rowing

And they're certainly not showing

any signs that they are slowing

That sounds pretty baste. Whatever happened to Kucinich?

As much as I enjoy seeing Biden making a fool of himself, and how fun it will be when Trump is re-relected and the salt mining season is back, it would be a lot safer to have someone like Gabbard on the Democrat side.

This Opeth music video reminds me of Edward Gorey’s book The West Wing, the one without any words at all and you have to interpret the illustrations yourself, but with women in corsets kissing.

Sounds plausible. There was an article/interview in Adresseavisen back in summer where a lesbian mudslime chick who is popular on TikTok said she was getting death threats on social media. Of course the article didn’t say who sent her these death threats, but I would bet a lot of money they come from her fellow mudslimes.

There is a very interesting YouTube series by Maria Kvilhaug that deals with the symbolism of the poems and myths in great detail, and I highly recommend giving her videos a watch. In particular she stresses the importance of translating the names of characters and places – left in their Old Norse (or Anglicised) form they mean nothing to a modern, non-Old Norse speaking reader. The translation of the names are extremely important if we want to understand what the poems and the myths are really telling us.

One thing that most people don’t know about Norse mythology is that the Norsemen believed in a form of reincarnation/rebirth. It was custom that the oldest son would be given his paternal grandfather’s name, the second oldest son the name of his maternal grandfather, and similarly with the daughters; the oldest daughter would be named after her paternal grandmother, and the second oldest after her maternal grandmother. This would allow the spirit of the ancestors live on through their bloodline. In the sagas there are mentions of characters born with the same marks upon their body as their ancestors were inflicted with. In the Helgi poems in the Elder Edda, it is said that the two main characters are reborn and fall in love again and again – at least three times.

Got around to seeing Viking Destiny aka Of Gods and Warriors from 2018.

There are some really beautiful locations shown in this film, the fights are well-done, the cinematography is beautiful, and the music is nice. There’s a lot to like about this film, and all these elements elevate this film above a lot of low-budget historical action films.

The acting is nothing to write home about, ranging from scenery-chewing to trying way too hard to serviceable. I really like Anna Demetriou as Helle, she looks the part and she does a fine job with the role. Terence Stamp as Odin did absolutely nothing for me, not only because the filmmakers decided to portray Odin with both eyes intact, and no dark blue broad-brimmed hat and cloak, but his delivery and the way they altered his voice and made him appear and disappear out of thin air vexed me greatly. Odin’s main distinguishable characteristic is that he is one-eyed – why on earth they couldn’t give the actor an eyepatch to wear, or use prosthetics and makeup to make it seem like he is missing one eye is baffling.

Ian Beattie, known for Game of Thrones, isn’t given enough to do, and far less to work with in his role. Taylor Frost is decent as Hakon and Will Mellor as Lord Soini likewise. Kajsa Mohammar looks beautiful as Tait, but isn’t given anything to do in the role.

The cave scene early on, Helle fleeing the kingdom and wandering around the wilderness, King Asmund’s funeral, and the mushroom scene are easily the highlights of the film. If the rest of the film and the writing had been on this level, the film would have been pretty damn great.

Loki is portrayed too much like goofy a devil-like figure, whispering bad advice into someone’s ear. And I’m not sure why they decided to paint his face half-black – perhaps a reference to his daughter, Hel, being described as half-blue/black and half skin-coloured, but that is because she is the goddess of the death-realm, halfway between death and life.

The Volsung castle is basically a stave church. Why not base it on a Viking ring fortress? And/or use the reconstructed longhouse at Lofotr Viking Museum? They could have shot interior scenes there without having to build anything or buy ePost too long. Click here to view the full text.

There is an article on her ancestry on CNN, but even though they sent someone over to look into his ancestry it is a dreadfully boring hitpiece on him disguised as an article. Hardly any information on her ancestors at all.

Yeah, I was at least hoping it would be a beautiful-looking mess since Erin Benach was the costume designer – she was the costume designer on NWR’s Drive & The Neon Demon. She was the one who designed the iconic scorpion jacket for Drive. Sadly none of the costumes in the film were eye-catching or memorable. Doubt they gave Benach free reins to design the costumes – can’t have anything too sexy or anything similar to the costumes from the comics…

Margot Robbie did a fine job, and I enjoyed the character Huntress. Some nice visuals, but the story and the music and the other characters missed the mark by a mile.

Still hoping NWR will make that Batgirl film.

The animation thread over at tvch made me want to check out Peter Chung’s animated series Æon Flux – it ran for three seasons on MTV from 1991-1995, and is one of the weirdest animated series I have seen. The two first seasons consists of 2 minute episodes without any dialogue. The episodes in the first season make up one continuous story and presented as one 12 minute Pilot episode. In the second season each episode is a stand alone story.

There are some truly bizarre things going on in this show, and there have been two /sapphic/ moments so far (the two first seasons), though they are just as strange as you might expect from this show.

Absolutely beautiful animation, but weird as fuck.

I vaguely remember seeing bits of this back in the day as well, and the only thing I remember about the live action film is that I absolutely hated it.

Moved onto the third and final season now, and there is more sapphistry afoot in the second episode; they confirm a relationship between Æon & Una on the audio commentary track as well.

I have no idea what the fuck is going on most of the time, but it looks pretty.

Against the star-littered night-sky and the gibbous moon the ruined castle atop the hill dominated the surrounding moon-dappled landscape. Its several crumbling stone towers, chapel spire and ruined battlements still rising high above the trees that encircled the massive outer walls like an invading army. The old road that ran up the gently sloping hill from the wooded base had over the centuries sunk down, become worn away by the countless footfalls of people, till at last, a hollow way had formed, and the overhead branches made it seem like a tunnel. At the base of the hill old, defensive earthworks encircled it, long-since overgrown by trees and shrubberies, and it was now almost indistinguishable from the rest of the hill.

The sight of the ruined castle had always reminded her of the scenes Caspar David Friedrich painted so beautifully, and especially so on a chill, moonlit autumnal night. She watched the castle silhouetted against the night-sky as the car drove along the old gravel road through what had once been the main street of the old village. The bombastic intro of ‘The Moon Was Yellow’ gave away and Frank Sinatra’s smooth voice took over on the car stereo, and she had to admit that the song seemed to be made for the scene.

Ever since she had first heard the tales of Karnstein Castle and the noble family of which she was a distant descendant via a maternal line, Sara Weil had felt a pull towards the castle. She remembered seeing some of the old family portraits on the walls when visiting her grandparents at a quite young age. Even though the paintings were faded by age and blackened by dirt and time she felt a wonderful familial resemblance to one portrait in particular – written in gold in the corner of the portrait was a name: Mircalla Karnstein. It had felt like she was looking at her own reflection in a the water, only slightly distorted despite being separated from each other by centuries – in particular it was the eyes that gave it away. What had begun as a fascination with a distant relative had developed into an obsession; and the vague, hazy memories, or even fragments of memories that had been with her for as long as she could recall began to fit like the pieces of a puzzle when she began to research her long-dead relative – names, faces, places and events. She had ‘known’ where to go when Post too long. Click here to view the full text.

Darkness. The bed was soft and warm. She heard muffled footsteps approaching. Sara opened her eyes.

Oh, Rand. What happened?

It didn't work Miss Sara

It didn't bloody work. She mumbled under her breath. A quiet discomfort began to creep over her which quickly turned to a rising sense of embarrassment. What had she been thinking? Rand threw open the blind allowing the midday sun to pour into the room. Sara threw a pillow over her face. She couldn't bear the light on her eyes. From under the lightly resting pillow she addressed Rand.

I suppose you think I'm quite the fool, don't you.

Rand stood back and appraised his employer, casting his eye over her barely distinguishable figure hidden under folds upon folds of heavy bedding. Only two pale thin hands were visible at the edges of the pillow. Holding it in place to conceal her face.

It is two pm. Mr Morris will be here shortly to discuss the wedding.

And with that, Rand made for the door.

Bring me two ibuprofen will you? I feel a migraine coming on.

It was a strange sensation in fact. She did indeed feel the symptoms of a migraine approaching. A rawness of the senses. A state where stimuli becomes stronger and at times unbearable. Sound, taste, the light…And yet, at the same time, she felt quite wonderful. The latter being something not soon to be paired with a migraine. Curious.

Oh Jack! Whatever would she tell him? Sara jumped out of bed, quickly closing the blind as she did so. She resolved to tell him nothing. After all, nothing came of it. Why should he know anything of her bout of madness? Such a revelation might drive him away from her. Even so, the desire to hide from Jack grew stronger. She hadn't the energy to face this. What she did need, she decided, was a strong coffee. Yes coffee, that will do the trick. The coffee shop with the server who never smiled. What was her story anyway?

Languidly she made her way down the grand staircase, clutching the railing to steady herself with her good hand, yet somehow succeeding in looking graceful. Her oversized sunglasses soothed her eyes as she stepped outside of the darkened entrance hall and made her way down the stone steps and short distance towards the waiting car. “Coffee shop, please.” Rand nodded and closed the car door for her, and she was thankfully prepared for the sound it made and its effect on her aching body. Whether it was due to the stress and long night, or the soul crushing blow that last night had resulted in utter failure, she grit her teeth and squinted her eyes as the car took off and the sensation of motion washed over her.

It would have been funny if it wasn’t so sad; all the money and time her parents had wasted on trying to ‘cure’ her from her paranoid delusions. If anyone had seen her last night, when Rand brought her back home in such a state… She would have been shipped off to yet another posh private clinic or institution in the middle of nowhere in the countryside to be medicated till she hardly knew what day it was. And to make matters worse the forced sessions of useless group therapy, and therapist sessions where some Freudian fraud diagnosed her with whatever nonsense they could, and prescribe more medication to keep her docile. She gently traced the length of the wound in her palm, now covered by the bandage. The pain had thankfully lessened, and Rand’s expertly applied bandage had stopped the bleeding quickly and effectively. No doubt her mother would notice and have a conniption fit. All in due time. She kept her head resting against the soft headrest of the backseat, and her eyes closed behind the dark-tinted sunglasses. She doubted simple painkillers could explain the way her senses were acting up, like she was becoming hyper-aware of her surroundings and coming down from a high at the same time. It was the strangest sensation ever, and not all that unpleasant.

“We’re here,” Rand announced, looking at her via the rear-view mirror when she made no effort to get out. The car had stopped, but her body still felt like they were driving, or on the open sea. “Are you sure you are feeling up tPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

Narrow and dark, the coffee shop wedged between brick faces to either side, appeared little more than a door in a wall upon approaching. Once through the threshold however, and down a short corridor of not more than five feet, the premise opened up to a cosy scene. To the left, the counter and coffee machine. Along the right side of the wall were a number of small round tables coupled with one or two stools. Beyond the counter and toward the back wall were larger tables arranged in a booth like manner, whereupon customers lounged on comfortable cushioned supports with the wall acting as back rests. It was at one of these tables that Sara had placed herself, back to the wall, counter to her front right, and corridor entrance slightly to her left.

Satisfied with her ability to see the larger goings on of the cafe, Sara noticed with a tinge of disappointment that the girl was not present today. No matter, the idea of a hot drink still called to her, and the idea of returning to the house, and Jack, so soon did not appeal at all. An ever so small pang of guilt shot through her. She brushed it aside, ordering a tall black coffee from the waiting server. Her mind drifted back to Jack. His face popping in and out of her mind's eye.

They had met on campus. Before she had come into her inheritance. The dashing Mr. Morrisey swept Sara utterly off of her feet and before she knew it, she was accepting his marriage proposal. It was all so romantic, so perfect. She wondered why then, the sudden appearance of cold feet. Was it cold feet? Something felt out of place.

The coffee arrived. Steam visibly rising from the black liquid within the tall thin glass. She drank. While she welcomed the warmth rushing through her chest, she felt dissatisfied. The first sip did not provide the kick she was looking for and Sara began to wonder if she should instead head to a bar. An excellent idea. Sara determined that once finished with her pointless coffee she was going to get well and truly drunk. Eyes on her exit, she rose from her seat and gulped down the last of the drink. At this moment a figure came through the corridorPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

Whatever reply she had in mind died away as she felt the warmth of the hand holding onto her wrist. It was not an unpleasant warmth, but it came as a surprise. “You are freezing,” the girl commented, and Sara felt her eyes watching her, studying her.

She’d never been this close to her before, and under any other circumstance it would have been a nice opportunity to try and figure out the strange girl who had interested her. But now she only wanted to get away as fast as possible. Here she was, standing in a café, bleeding all over the place from a self-inflicted knife-wound, and feeling, and probably looking, like she was recovering from a fever. Not the ideal way to make a first impression… “Really? I hadn’t noticed,” Sara excused, cringing at the hoarseness in her voice.

“Let’s take a look at that hand,” the girl stated, motioning for them to sit down at one of the nearby tables. Meanwhile a barrista had been designed to clean-up duty, picking up bits of broken glass and drops of blood. “Sorry about the mess,” Sara excused, addressing the barrista and removing her sunglasses with her good hand. Her attention was, however, quickly focused on the girl who never smiled, as she began to unwrap the bloodstained bandage. Sarah silently dreaded the moment when she would see the knife-wound. Was the girl a doctor or nurse, or would she be able to tell it was self-inflicted? “It was a stupid mistake…” Sara began, nearly stuttering, as her palm was uncovered and the wound was exposed. Unreadable blue eyes watched her, she she noticed a light spattering of freckles she’d never noticed before on the girl’s face. A shudder went though her body, beginning with the hand and spreading all throughout her body as the girl’s index finger softly traced the length of the cut. She had long, delicate fingers, perfect for playing piano, Sara thought, watching those long, pale fingers touching her hand. The other girl’s touch felt oddly warm against her own, like she’d been sunbathing on a beach, and Sara had been outside on a cool autumn day. It was a strange, oddly pleasant contrast, though the dull headache and the embarrassing nature of the situation was everything but pleasant.

FrankensteinThe Curse of Frankenstein (1957), The Revenge of Frankenstein (1958), The Evil of Frankenstein (1964), Frankenstein Created Woman (1967), Frankenstein Must Be Destroyed (1969), The Horror of Frankenstein (1970) & Frankenstein and the Monster From Hell (1974). IMHO the only weak links in the series are The Evil of Frankenstein & Frankenstein Created Woman. While The Horror of Frankenstein is often considered a letdown, due to the lack of Cushing as the baron, and the very dark comedic tone, it is a really enjoyable film, and one of the underappreciated Hammer films.

DraculaDracula aka Horror of Dracula (1958), The Brides of Dracula (1960), Dracula: Prince of Darkness (1966), Dracula Has Risen from the Grave (1968), Taste the Blood of Dracula (1970), Scars of Dracula (1970), Dracula A.D. 1972 (1972), The Satanic Rites of Dracula (1973) & The Legend of the 7 Golden Vampires (1974). The two first films are fantastic, and Brides is perhaps more enjoyable than the original despite Lee not returning as count Dracula. The following films does not feature Cushing as Van Helsing till Dracula A.D. 1972, and Lee’s mostly, if not completely, silent Dracula doPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

Found this podcast called Hammer Horror Podcast covering the Hammer horror films. In one episode from 2014(?) they interview Hammer actor Shane Briant. Only seen him in Frankenstein and the Monster From Hell (1974) & Captain Kronos – Vampire Hunter (1974) so far. Really underrated actor IMHO, and it is a real shame he never appeared in more Gothic horror films for Hammer. As evident from the interview he lives Down Under now.

https://hammerhorrorpodcast.com/shane-briant-insight-into-the-master-of-evil/

<HHP: I just want to touch on [Captain Kronos – Vampire Hunter], because, its interestingly established a cult following, and I just wanted to know what you think is its appeal, and indeed the appeal of vampire stories in general.

<SB: Well, I’m getting a bit fed-up with vampire stories now, cause there are too many of them. Every second film you see on Foxtel is about vampires. The kind of vampire stories I like now are the European vampire stories, there was one I saw, and I can’t remember its name now, but it was about two modern-day lesbian vampires in Sweden. And that was pretty hot. I liked that. And I like the really old ones like Nosferatu.

Sounds like /ourguy/ to me. Any idea what film he was talking about?

Also, here is their coverage of ‘The Karnstein Trilogy’: https://hammerhorrorpodcast.com/2013/10/31/the-karnstein-trilogy-the-vampire-lovers-1970-lust-for-a-vampire-1971-twins-of-evil-1971/

Had a listen to the soundtracks to The Vampire Lovers & Lust For A Vampire earlier, and Ingrid Pitt & Yutte Stensgaard wrote introductions included with the CD releases. Hammer scholar Marcus Hearn also provides a lot of background and insight on the production of The Vampire Lovers.

You can find them on RuTracker.org – great DL speed on both:

Harry Robinson - The Vampire Lovers (1970) (CD, 2000) FLAC

Various Artists - The Hammer Vampire Film Music Collection (2001) FLAC

The soundtrack to Lust For A Vampire didn’t get a CD release on its own, but the five tracks are included in The Hammer Vampire Film Music Collection. There is a brief part in the opening theme (The Opening Credits) that reminded me of the opening theme to Dark Shadows.

Watched the 2018 docu Hammer Horror: The Warner Bros Years by Marcus Hearn the other day. Did not care at all for two of the guys being interviewed, and director Peter Sasdy turns out to be subversive asshole, but there are some cool BTS photos and footage, and the interviews with the actors were great; especially Veronica Carlson & Madeline Smith. Even though the film titled Hammer Horror they spend a lot of time on some of the thrillers, scifi/comedies and adventure films Hammer churned out at the same time.

I think the film is up on YT, but I can only recommend the interviews with the actors tbqh.

A thread for the discussion of sapphic literature – everything from serious novels to short-stories and fanfics.

Can’t have a thread about sapphic literature without mentioning the original lesbian vampire story ‘Carmilla’ by Joseph Sheridan Le Fanu: https://archive.org/stream/inglassdarkly00lefa#page/358/mode/2up

<The Flowers of Evil, which T. S. Eliot called the greatest example of modern poetry in any language, shocked the literary world of nineteenth century France with its outspoken portrayal of lesbian love, its linking sexuality and death, its unremitting irony, and its unflinching celebration of the seamy side of urban life. The volume was seized by the police, and Baudelaire and his publisher were put on trial for offence to public decency. Six offending poems were banned, in a conviction that was not overturned until 1949. This bold new translation, which restores the banned poems to their original places and reveals the full richness and variety of the collection, makes available to English speakers a powerful and original version of the world. Jonathan Culler's Introduction outlines this vision, stressing that Baudelaire is more than just the poet of the modern city. Originally to be called `The Lesbians', The Flowers of Evil contains the most extraordinary body of love poetry. The poems also pose the question of the role of evil in our lives, of whether there are not external forces working to frustrate human plans and to enlist men and women on appalling or stultifying scenarios not of their own making.

The mention of the “flowers of evil” lamps in the Art Nouveau style in Let’s Scare Jessica to Death (1971), and the possible visual reference in The Neon Demon (2016) makes a lot more sense now.

Gonna check this collection out, along with some other books in the decadent style of the fin de siècle; Joris-Karl Huysmans’ ‘Against Nature’ & Oscar Wilde’s ‘The Picture of Dorian Gray’.

Was looking up Erichthonius of Athens in Encyclopædia Britannica (Ninth Edition, obvi.), when I found an article on Erinna.

<ERINNA, a Greek poetess, the contemporary and friend of Sappho, was probably a native of Rhodes or the adjacent island of Telos, and was born about 630 B.C. Although she died at the early age of nineteen, her poems were amongst the most famous of her time. Of her best known poem, called Ἠλακάτη (the Distaff), which contained 300 lines, only four lines are now extant. It was written in a mixed dialect of Dorian and Eolian. Three epigrams in the Palatine anthology are also ascribed to her; but two of these are possibly spurious. Another poetess of this name is said to have flourished in the age of Demosthenes, but her existence if a matter of considerable uncertainity. The Erinna fragments were collected in Bergk’s Poetæ Lyrici Græci (Leipsic, 1867).

I'd listen. Only gone through the first two chapters with Elise reading, and she's still pretty adorable.

Still raging at all of the lost texts.

It did make me wonder if there was something I didn't know about Japanese men.

That was great.

>Found a higher res version of the sapphic one. It does look like a “struggle snuggle”.

Now that you mention it, it does. It's hard to read these images with fucked up perspectives and strangely proportioned figures.

Telling someone’s fortune might be a nice and subtle way to “test the waters” as well, if the cherry trick is too forward. Be sure to burn some incense and turn on the Himalayn salt lamp to set the mood.
