After heading down to Pune for the weekend to meet US-based relatives landing there and collecting stuff they'd carried for me, I reached home last night and put on the blu-ray of the Bruce Lee classic Fist of Fury (called Chinese Connection in the US because his previous film The Big Boss had been released there as...Fist of Fury - yea, it's confusing).

Unlike the more rabid BL fan, I do not regard all his movies as masterpieces. I like FoF and Enter the Dragon the best, and Way of the Dragon a little less. The rest work of his short filmography before his tragic death only works in bits (mostly the bits where he uses his fists to do the talking).

FoF is the archetype kung fu potboiler in which the hero must take revenge for the death of his master. FoF uses simplicity as a virtue - the good guys are caricatures of nobility and the bad guys (the Japanese, or the natives subservient to them) are cartoonishly evil. Bruce Lee kicks everyone's ass without breaking too much of a sweat. People that have watched Manmohan Desai's Mard will recall the scene where Amitabh Bachchan gatecrashes the club with the notice that says "Dogs and Indians not Allowed". That scene had its origins in FoF when Bruce encounters a similar sign about dogs and Chinese (Mard takes it to a whole new level though, when
[Show spoiler]the hero drives his whole blooming horse-cart into the club pool
). There's also a cute scene where he is laughably disguised as a cross-eyed telephone repair man. FoF won't win any awards for subtlety or realism but it's good pulpy fun.

Screeenshots of the 4k restored blu-ray looked decent, but in motion the impact is a lot better. Detail and stability and significantly bumped up from my HKL DVD and the image looks much tighter. I watched the film with the English mono track. Briefly I tried the English 5.1 but it seems to be a wholly new track with different voice actors. The mono track was the fun dub I remember but it seemed to have an distracting amount of bass thump during the dialog, unless I imagined it.

Problems with my home internet have led me to be mostly offline, especially since I find it very irksome to type on the phone, bleh.

Anyhoo, most of my weekday viewing has consisted of episodes of the Poirot Early Cases set with David Suchet (making my way through Season 1). In comparison to contemporary detective serials, the tone here is jauntier and the look colorful. Suchet as an actor nicely embodies the quirks of Agatha Christie's famous Belgian egg-head sleuth. If there are deficiencies, they are mostly rooted in Christie's original stories which either recycle plots (Triangle at Rhodes was an early working of the plot later expanded as Evil Under the Sun) or are so predictable that we identify the murderer significantly before the characters in the episode. Still, it's light and pleasant viewing with high production value, and a nice diversion at the end of a hard day.
The transfers are quite good, and even though the audio is only dolby stereo, it is quite adequate, with clear dialog and good support for the lush opening theme and background score.

On Sunday I re-watched Qurbani on DVD with mum. A few random thoughts:
  • Qurbani is still one of the coolest Bollywood movies of all time, with the hunkiest hunks (Feroze Khan and Vinod Khanna), the sexiest babe (Zeenat Aman) and an Amjad Khan stealing every scene he appears in, often without any dialog.
  • MoserBaer's DVD (sourced from Bombino Video) has the usual wretched older movie print quality with lots of damage. Additionally some 12 minutes of the film is missing. It goes straight from the scene where Zeenat on the beach burns FK's money and angrily walks away from him to the "Kya Dekhte Ho" song where they are suddenly lovey-dovey. The chopped footage includes the scene in which FK and VK first meet, and the reason for the grudge Shakti Kapoor's villain has with VK. For some strange reason, they retain the lengthy and adoring pre-credits eulogy to Sanjay Gandhi, in which FK promises to dedicate the opening day collections from Delhi and Bangalore to "the memory of Sanjay Gandhi" (hopefully not to drinking sessions to drown his grief).
  • Some years before his demise FK was planning on a remake of Qurbani with his zomboid cokehead son (who now seems to have expanded to Bappi Lahiri proportions). Thankfully that didn't happen and a classic was left alone. To my mind, one possible interesting idea for a reboot would be if they replaced one of the male leads with a lesbian and made the Zeenat character a conflicted bisexual. That would add some nice spice to the triangle.

Some time during the weekend, I also saw the older film of 3:10 to Yuma. I normally try to avoid seeing multiple adaptations of the same story, but hey I'm also a sucker for a good old-fashioned western. Although old-fashioned might not be a correct word for Delmer Davis' film, it has surprisingly fresh looking visual sense, with depth of field in the cinematography by the justly acclaimed Mr. Charles Lawton.

For those not already aware, Elmore Leonard's source short story is about a man agreeing to escort a wanted bandit to the titular train for 200$ to save his farm, determined to stick to his end of the bargain, even as everyone around him either drops out or drops dead, no thanks to the bandit's posse out to save their boss. I previously saw James Mangold's 2007 adaptation and liked it a great deal, especially for Christian Bale's credible portrayal of the reluctant hero. In contrast I find Glenn Ford's take on the bandit more rounded than Russell Crowe's fun but almost schizophrenically whimsical turn. The differences make each of the films worth checking out.

As expected, the A/V presentation is excellent (4K scan, 2K resto), I have no complaints whatsoever. On disc extras are slight but interesting, approx 15 min each interviews with Leonard and with Glenn Ford's son Peter. The included booklet has a meaty essay by Kent Jones. I got the UK disc when it was going for 10 quid so it was a nice bargain.

1935's The Raven was another Universal Studios collaboration between Bela Lugosi and Boris Karloff. Like with the previous year's The Black Cat, the film has nothing to do with Edgar Allan Poe's source poem, coming closer to The Pit and the Pendulum with Bela leading the cast as a skilled surgeon with a Poe obsession and a hobby for collecting torture devices.

The script offers strong opportunity for Lugosi as a brilliant but unhinged medical man. At the beginning his surgical skill saves the leading lady after he is begged by her father. But Bela wants more than just gratitude from her, and when asked to withdraw, his twisted God complex takes over. Opportunity arrives with an escaped fugitive (Karloff) who asks to have his face changed (to look good, because several of his crimes were initiated in rage when people called him ugly), Lugosi disfigures Karloff even further, agreeing to make him "look good" only after he helps out in various dastardly deeds for Lugosi to get the woman of his desire. The plotting is a little muddy in terms of what the mad doctor actually plans to do, but the film has strong performances and excellent atmosphere.

There's some interesting subtext here about external beauty and intrinsic nature. Lugosi isn't allowed to be subtle but even in OTT villainy mode he's in good form, and Karloff offers sporting support as the Frankenstein's monster equivalent (for commercial reasons Karloff was top-billed and paid significantly more, which rankled Lugosi). Lugosi's house in the film is like a Bond villain's lair with its traps and torture devices. The Raven isn't a profound film, but it's darned good fun for classic horror fans.

The Shout BD (part of their Universal Horror Collection Vol 1 set) has, for a low-budget film of this vintage, strong filmic image quality. Audio has its limitations but serves the purpose.

Saw Cold War on the AE blu. Detailed impressions possibly later, but Cold War is like a Euro mash of When Harry Met Sally and that Stanley Donen classic Two for the Road. Two people meet and fall in intense love, then part and repeatedly meet at different time points, and find that they can neither live with or without each other. Truth be told its acclaim seems a tad excessive - the socio-political backdrop adds some dimension, but it's lightweight emotionally, and seems to pay more attention to its gorgeously crafted B&W visual styling (and the terrific soundtrack, which in a good way brings to mind the evocative scores of Kryzstof Kieslowski's movies like Double Life of Veronique and Three Colors: Blue).

But it's a lovely date movie for people that cringe at the usual date movies.

Default The Omen

Inspired by some of the Halloween Horror Movie Month watching posts in other parts of the blu-ray forums, yesterday I put on an old favourite. I highly doubt I can keep up a one horror movie a day schedule, but I'll try to watch a few and post about the ones I haven't already discussed in detail.

The Omen was one of the horror movies that was a rite of passage in my childhood, along with The Exorcist, The Evil Dead, Nightmare on Elm Street and Friday the 13th. The film was made by Richard Donner, who later helmed my other childhood classic - Superman: The Movie. Based on a screenplay by David Seltzer, who later novelized it, Omen's pulpy plot introduces the Anti-Christ as a baby passed on to a US Senator (Gregory Peck) in Rome, whose wife (Lee Remick) is supposed to have miscarried. Hiding the truth from his wife, the senator takes the child as his own, naming him Damien. The bulk of the film rolls from Damien's 5th birthday onwards, where the sudden suicide of his nanny is the trigger for a series of macabre incidents in the life of Peck (now US Ambassador in Britain and a presidential hopeful) and his family. Peck learns to his horror that his "son" is really the spawn of Satan and must be killed before he can exercise his power to greater extent. How he deals with the revelation and whether he can fulfil his mission of righteous killing forms the rest of the film.

I saw The Omen on VHS as a small kid, but understood it better when I read the novelized version a few years later. While the films stopped at part 3
[Show spoiler](where Sam Neill played adult Damien)
, there were at least 5 novels in the series (all of which, I am ashamed to admit, I read ). Interestingly, Seltzer did not participate in writing any of the sequels.

The Omen as a film is mainly notable for Donner's steady direction, the lead performances and Jerry Goldsmith's iconic score, especially the vocal theme "Ave Satani". It revived Gregory Peck's career for a short while (and his 10% share of the grosses amounted to far more than the cut-price salary he agreed to) and made it fashionable for other ageing Hollywood stars to revitalize themselves through prestige horror films. Revisiting now, the chill factor is not as much as during my first watch, but it's still a well-made film. Fox's blu-ray is now a decade old and the transfer is decent though not exceptional, but possibly suffers from the use of a brightened master from the DVD days. I will be keeping an eye out for screenshots from Shout Factory's newly announced Omen Collection which boasts a new 4K master scanned from the OCN for the first film. The extras on the existing blu are the same as from the 2-DVD SE, including multiple commentaries and several interesting featurettes about the making of this classic.

Default Dead of Night

Last night's Halloween theme viewing was Dead of Night.
While the anthology horror film genre (in which a bunch of short horror episodes are linked by a framing story) was made famous by Britain's erstwhile Amicus Studios (Dr. Terror's House of Horrors, Torture Garden, House That Dripped Blood, Asylum, Tales from the Crypt, Tales That Witness madness, Vault of Horror, From Beyond the Grave), it was originated almost 20 years before in this effort from Ealing studios. What is remarkable is that for a pioneering effort from a studio that almost never before or after attempted a horror feature, DoN is such a fully formed work of creativity whose influence has extended for decades beyond.

DoN begins on a bright morning with a car stopping at a cheery farmhouse. The driver Walter Craig has been called in for some form of architectural consultation. As soon as Walter enters the house, a sense deja vu envelops his thoughts, cemented when he comes upon the tea party guests in the living room. It appears that our man Walter has seen the house and all its current inhabitants in a constantly recurring dream. The discussion and arguments that arise when he reveals this to the party lead to each member telling anecdotes of strange incidents that occurred with them. A race car driver that received a warning from an Angel of Death. A Christmas party in which a girl discovers a child who may not be what he seems. A mirror that reflects more than the reality it faces. The dilemma of who controls who between a ventriloquist and his dummy.

Each of these episodes is played well - just long enough to generate an atmosphere and concluding before we become impatient. Where DoN especially succeeds is in the framing story. Unlike many other anthologies where it proves to be the weak link, the framing story here carries a marriage of reality and dream that is reflected in the individual episodes and, without spoilers, the delirious climax sequence and the epilogue carry a terrific sting in the tail.

A/V specs on the Studio Canal release I own are decent. The video has a fair amount of small damage marks but I find it quite acceptable for a low-budget film of the vintage. Contrast and blacks are pleasing. The audio is flat with a slightly muffled quality but clear in most part. Major extra is a 75min retrospective with horror critics discussing the film and its influence. The more recent Kino release boasts a 4K scan and houses a new commentary by Tim Lucas, but I am not convinced of the improvement in visual quality, so I'm not double-dipping.

It's not traditional horror, but Jean Cocteau's Orphee / Orpheus is a strange and surreal film that's not out of place for a Halloween theme viewing.

Loosely adapted from the Greek legend, here Orpheus (Jean Marais) is a disgruntled poet (of the New Wave, perhaps) whisked away from the scene of a mishap by a decidedly strange woman (who might be Death herself) and the people that obey her orders. Abandoned in an equally mysterious fashion, Orpheus is chauffeured home where wife Eurydice has been crying hell over his disappearance. Shortly after Eurydice is taken away and Orpheus learns that he must go after into an other-world dimension through a mirror portal to get her back.

Cocteau's film embraces surrealism for both its content and style, creating a dream-like ambience for large stretches. The effects used are simple but ingenious, and the off-kilter tone of the film makes it easier to be immersed in its contrivances. Nicholas Hayer's cinematography has a luminous quality and Georges Auric's music enhances the fantasy element of the film.

The BFI blu-ray carries a handsome transfer of the film with a clear LPCM 2.0 French soundtrack (and English subtitles). There are also several extras and a booklet included.

Default Ragini MMS

A couple goes to an empty house for a sexy weekend getaway. Unbeknownst to the girl, the house is rigged with cameras and the guy is planning to shoot a sex tape which he can trade for career favors. Unbeknownst to both of them, the house is haunted by a vengeful ghost.

While I can't recommend it wholeheartedly, I found things to like about the first Ragini MMS. It had a surprisingly decent segment, where it becomes a 2-character play featuring the leads (Kainaz Motiwala and Raj Kumar in the period between Yadav and Rao), and also that rare bit, especially for Indian horror movies, where it segues into what happens in the time of day between the hours of night when the ghoul has free rein. And unlike what the marketing tries to tell you it's a lot more chaste than your typical Mohan Bhakri horror venture.
Sadly, the supporting cast is throwaway, ghost design is pitifully bad, and every silly cliche in the haunted house genre is adhered to.

The DVD from Junglee has decent image quality (the film was shot digitally and many often gives you the viewpoint of a handycam or mobile camera) and a soundtrack with some engaging use of surrounds. No extras.

Default Hour of the Wolf

Tonight's Halloween horror watch. Ingmar Bergman has dealt with macabre images and discomfiting concepts before but Hour of the Wolf (made immediately after Persona, I think) contains his most outright venture in the horror genre with a visual sense that would be worthy of a Mario Bava film.
Max Von Sydow is a painter that lives with his young wife Liv Ullman on a remote island (shades of Bergman and Ullman living on Faroe island?). While they share love, Max is also tormented by nightmares and insists they keep awake through the night, especially the hours between 3 and 4, the time of night when most people die and children are born and nightmares are endured. They also seem to be drawn into a psychological maelstrom by a family of the most perverse people, with soirees that look like an interpretation of a Bosch painting. Reality and nightmare blend seamlessly in a journey that eschews conventional logic for its own brand of nightmare sensibility. David Lynch probably learned some of his trade from here.

My re-viewing of the film was on MGM's DVD from their wonderful Criterion-class Ingmar Bergman Collection. Since I didn't opt to get Criterion's mega Bergman set, I'll be waiting for this one to get a solo release before I upgrade to blu-ray.

Default Evil Dead 2: Dead by Dawn

A film I can re-watch any day. Half of ED2 is almost a one-man show. Between this and Bubba Ho-Tep, Bruce Campbell shows why he is one of the best horror actors of all time, only the narrow-mindedness of mainstream film critics and media denying him a greater recognition (Seriously, his BHT performance was Academy award worthy, a moving meditation on old age and loneliness). Here, he channels Chaplin and Buster Keaton with a macabre slant. I hope he is at least making good money every time his classic movies get a new video release or streaming license.

Yesterday's non-Halloween watch. Spike Lee's Do The Right Thing is - like John Steinbeck's Cannery Row meets that old DD serial Nukkad - a warm-hearted and deeply felt neighborhood fable which culminates in a violent conflict and its aftermath. Spike Lee's film has been accused of suggesting that violence is an acceptable solution to social exploitation, but really it is more a cautionary tale that the social prejudices within all of us (yes, even those of us who consider ourselves broad-minded) can at any time flare into an all-consuming flame.

Spectacular looking restoration supervised by the DoP emphasizes that almost fairy-tale look in terms of color saturation. The 5.1 track is not a surround showcase but provides a lush and powerful presentation of the film's audioscape including the wonderful Bill Lee score. Have yet to check out the extras and the hefty accompanying book, but this is already a winner.

Default The House with Laughing Windows

Pupi Avati's cult classic is another film I can re-watch several times over. An art restorer comes to work on a weird painter's fresco, and comes to discover that both his subject and the town he lived in have some strange secrets which may perhaps have been better left alone.

THWLW is sometimes mislabeled as a giallo, but it is really a slow-burn journey through a increasingly suffocating aura of dread and oppression. The feeling of strangeness is established from the start with the disturbing sepia visuals and the deranged sound recordings, and like with Carl Dreyer's Vampyr, the film never drops that feeling. It doesn't all come together in a way that makes conventional sense, but damn it, a great horror film's job is not to make sense but to convey its creepiness to the audience, and there's no disputing that this one beautifully scores on that count.

Saw THWLW on my old Nouveaux Pictures DVD, which is barebones, but with a decent anamorphic trasfer (at least it seems at home with the muted decaying look of the film) and Italian audio with subs. Have been hoping for many years for a blu-ray release, and wondering if I should at least "upgrade" to the director supervised transfer on the Shameless DVD.

Default Q - The Winged Serpent

Q aka Quetzacoatl - The Winged Serpent is one of those weird mashes of noir meets creature feature only a maverick like Larry Cohen could have pulled off.

Cops in midtown Manhattan seem to be investigating two separate crazy incidents, one of ritual killings (and are they really killings?) and one of bizarre decapitations on the tops of skyscrapers carried out by a massive winged beast. It turns out these may not be unrelated. Meanwhile sad sack Quinn (a brilliant Michael Moriarty), out-of-work jazz musician and reluctant participant in a gem robbery, runs away from the crime scene and ends up finding the nest of the mysterious creature. The knowledge puts him in a position of power and gives wings to his ego as he bargains with the authorities to reveal his secret and also uses the beast to take care of his pursuers.

Cohen as director is not a techno-wunderkid like Spielberg and co, and the measly million dollar budget could not have afforded him much leeway. The monster attack sequences, while quaint in their use of stop-motion and opticals, are more like rough blueprints to make up the scene in your head. But he is a gifted writer and conjures situations that propel the narrative and gloss over its absurdities. His partnership with Moriarty (also seen in The Stuff and the underrated Return to Salem's Lot) is synergistic. In Quinn they create a character reminiscent of the memorable Richard Widmark turns, despicably self-centered yet sympathetic.

I caught the film on the old Blue Underground DVD. As I understand the Shout Factory blu-ray is based on the same dated master and not much of an upgrade (and no new extras). Fervently hoping for BU or Arrow to undertake a badly needed new restoration of this cult horror gem.

Default Alice

I had first seen Hell Comes to Frogtown a long while back on DVD and recalled it being a funny bizarre movie with some good moments, but also some dead space. The preposterous post-apocalypse premise has Rowdy Roddy Piper being recruited by the Medical Corps (represented by Sandahl 'Conan' Bergman) to impregnate a bunch of women after most of mankind has been rendered sterile in a nuclear war. The catch is, these women have been abducted by mutant frogmen. The premise is never explored to full crazy levels, but there's a fair bit of charm here. Piper is no thespian (and this was before They Live), but he has a twinkle in his eye and a disarming "aw shucks" look that makes him an appropriate leading man for this vehicle. The rest of the cast is game and the make up and FX for the leading bad (frog)guy are excellent. No scares, but some good Halloweeny laughs here.

I had been contemplating the Arrow release but never actually got it. The delay turned out good since Vinegar Syndrome put out a new transfer based on a 4K IP scan, which looks better than the Arrow in screenshots. They included all of the Arrow extras (including a hilarious interview with the late Roddy) and added an excellent new hour-long interview with writer-producer Randall Frakes who gives an interesting and colorful account of the film and its legacy.




Alice is not boogeyman horror but Czech animation / mixed media film-maker Jan Svankmajer's adaptation of the Lewis Carroll classic has its share of grotesque moments. Svankmajer has a visual fetish for still objects, puppetry, automatons and collages, and makes handy use of all of these in his creation of a weird ambience. It's not very kinetic - certain scenes like the Mad Hatter's tea party become tiresomely repetitive - but its uniquely odd vision makes Alice worth visiting.

The BFI's blu-ray is old now but still provides a handsome presentation of the film with detailed textures. While the bulk of the film leans towards an earthy look, when vivid colors like red and green appear, they stand out well. There are lossless Czech and (dubbed) English tracks. On-disc extras are slim, mainly a couple short film adaptations of the story. Some extras on this combo pack are exclusive to the DVD. There's also a decent sized booklet included.
