GUEST,livelylass BS: Movies to avoid (161* d) RE: BS: Movies to avoid 31 Jul 11


I like it for it's claustrophobic viscerality, the viewer is bound to this restricted space with these characters and therefore the - physical - reality of their nightmare.
I like the gritty B&W cinematography, it's B&W realism counterpoints the period's excessive theatrical classic Hammer Horror drama (which I also love).
I like the lack of classic horror actors, see the above.


This horror, feels like a nightmare. The audience are not removed from the action. They are compelled to engage with the action. I don't know if it matters to other viewers identify with the Black hero in a 60's B&W Zombie Movie, or don't, but there's something about the whole thing that suggests a narrative I'm not clever enough to script.
