Rediscovering Horror: a new project (26 movies items)

"Viewed on: August 4 2012 Beautiful cinematography. Very emotive and powerful special effects, with extreme dramatics in acting. I really needed to see this movie. I now understand the fascination and love that people feel for some of the brilliantly visual silent movies. The images are unforgettable. This is a movie worth owning. "

"28.10. Olipa mukavaa käydä taas Club Mega Therionissa pitkästä aikaa. Onnistuin innostumaan siellä näytetystä Faustista niin paljon, että päätin vetää totaalisen epäsosiaalisuusmoodin päälle ja katsoa sitä hiljaa istuen. Uusintakatselulla itse elokuva oli aivan täyttä timanttia, kuten aikaisemminkin ja taustalla soitettu erittäin vaihteleva musiikki sopi oikeasti joihinkin kohtauksiin, kun taas toisiin se toi irvokkaan kieroa huumoria. Visuaalisesti elokuva on aivan mestari"

While these techniques might look more primitive and dated than effects used in modern films, there is no denying the artistry is not primitive and the effectiveness frankly exceeds that of most modern films. The sets used are masterfully crafted and have sharp angles that lo"
