Because I’m housebound from the hurricane and lazy, I spent the last two days reading twenty word 2010 Leonard Maltin Movie Guide reviews. So I decided to copy the bearded one’s style, random symbols and all.
Day 27: Insidious (2010) 102m. *** D: James Wan. Patrick Wilson, Rose Byrne, Ty Simpkins, Barbara Hershey, Lin Shaye. Ghosts start tormenting two parents after their young son goes into a coma. Calmer and moodier than Wan’s SAW to great effect, but gets a little goofy near the end. &@#
Day 28: Island of Lost Souls (1933) 70m. **** D: Erle C. Keaton. Charles Laughton, Bela Lugosi, Richard Arlen, Kathleen Burke, Stanley Fields,Leila Hymams. Fantastic adaptation of H.G. Wells story about a crackpot doctor with snazzy facial hair who turns animals into people. Where that DEVO album got its name. Features a great performance from Bela Lugosi’s beard. Remade as ISLAND OF DR. MOREAU in 1977 and 1996. O!D
Day 29: Eyes Without A Face (1959-French-Italian) 88m. *** D: Georges Franju.Pierre Brasseur, Alida Valli, Edith Scob. Surprisingly visceral French/Italian horror film about an insane doctor out to steal a face for his disfigured daughter. Features lots of cute doggies. Aka THE HORROR CHAMBER OF DR. FAUSTUS. #GE
