Music to Make Horror Movies By: Hanna Schygulla

Published October 18, 2020 by biggayhorrorfan

Hanna Schygulla is so bad-ass. As one of the ultra-femme inspirations of German filmmaker (and all-around wunderkind) Rainer Werner Fassbinder and as one of the co-stars of Cannon Film’s batshit-loco action opus Delta Force, her pedigree cannot be denied!

Although, her penultimate moment onscreen may be as Karen, her lusciously manipulative lesbian, in Fassbinder’s Sirk-like The Bitter Tears of Petra von Kant. Nicely, she also lent great mystery, years later, to Kenneth Branagh’s gothic reincarnation thriller Dead Again.

But…perhaps, her moments as a chanteuse in the last decade or so, have provided the world with her ultimate performances.

Whatever your personal preference may be, without a doubt, her singular majesty will, rightfully, live on forever!

Review: The Knock

Published March 26, 2020 by biggayhorrorfan

Knock

There’s nothing quite like getting woken up from a deep sleep by an unexpectedly loud voice in your building’s hallway, right? Although, I imagine a soft scratch at your door followed by a bedraggled whisper of your name would be even worse. Embarking on a more intense version of that last scenario, writer-director Zach Lorkiewicz’s latest horror short The Knock almost seems to be presciently made for these late night, isolationist times.

As with many Count the Clock Productions, the visual and sonic elements of this piece are top notch. Here Lorciewicz’s glossily acute style finds its match in Terence Yoon’s coloring and cinematography, Nathan Baldonado’s moody lighting and Catharine Yang’s jump start the march score. Meanwhile, Lauren Elyse Buckley’s committed acting performance is sure to put all viewers in the head space of their own corner of the eye midnight frights.
