The Thing From Another World

Saturday, February 17, 2024 

One of the problems with my health condition is never having a good night's sleep. (Yep, I'm still waiting on my home visit to kick-start my injections.) Still, last night, I found a late-night movie on BBCiplayer to watch. And it was a real classic! This would make a perfect theatrical play, if it hasn't been done already.

Lego Project 2 - Ghost Stories for Christmas

 Monday, February 05, 2024

As I have already noted, my Lego Guy N Smith dioramas have now reached an end. But I'm still having fun with the hobby. It's a very meditative activity and continues to really help in taking my mind off my illness as I await the start of my fortnightly jabs. And so I have given myself a second Lego challenge, which is: Scenes from BBC2's Ghost Stories for Christmas. Despite waiting for a crucial part of my next diorama, I have already made a start with its construction:

Sorting ut My Folk Horror Shelf

A few more folk horror DVDs I've dug out from the attic to add to my f.h. shelf. Pyewacket is a great tale of a teenage girl who regrets practising magic in the woods. Puffball is a strange tale of pregnancy by no other than Nic Roeg himself. And The Shout is about, well, a shout that kills.

The next movie in my personal collection of folk horror films is the classic 70s flick - Blood on Satan's Claw. My DVD copy has this nice info leaflet enclosed with it: #folkhorror

Next up in my folk horror library of folk horror is one of my favourites - The Witch. "Wouldst thou like to live deliciously?"


Bjork ~ The Juniper Tree

Wednesday, 17 January 2024

It's time to start organising my personal film, TV and book library on my favourite genre, folk horror. I'll start with this beauty of a film. It stars the one and only Bjork and is based on the classic Hans Christian Anderson fairy tale. The BFI Blu-ray release is pristine and is loaded with extras, including some rare old folk horror shorts. The first pressings also hit the shelves with an informative guide to the film and its restoration.
