The Seasoned Ticket #21

Robert Horton is a Scarecrow board member and a longtime film critic. He will be contributing a series of “critic’s notes” to the Scarecrow blog—a chance to highlight worthy films playing locally and connecting them to the riches of Scarecrow’s collection.

 

Sticking with Halloween mode this week. If you’re living in Seattle, make a point of checking out Antonia Bird’s Ravenous, revived at the Grand Illusion. This 1999 film is a cannibal-zombie picture set at a military outpost in 1840s California. It is as good as it sounds, and it features a terrific score by Michael Nyman and Damon Albarn that is a masterpiece on its own. I couldn’t find my review of Ravenous, because—these things disappear sometimes. But it’s a rave.

Looking through my critic’s notes, I find some material on Roger Corman, who needs no introduction to Scarecrow devotees. For reasons long forgotten I jotted down notes on three Corman classics (they contain spoilers, so be advised), and I also include here a couple of links to posted writing on Not of This Earth and the Corman-inspired In the Year 2889. As you will see, I pay tribute to my fave moment in The Day the World Ended more than once.

More new additions to the Wishlist Collection!

by Mark Steiner

 

Another season brings another lot of titles to our growing Wishlist Collection. This time around, we turned to France to acquire a couple of dozen English-friendly Blu-rays and DVDs that cover the years 1934 to 1983. That’s quite a broad range of French cinema, and the titles reflect the variety in genre, mood, and style. Here’s a brief guide to these new acquisitions that will hopefully pique your interest to come and explore this ever-growing collection.

It’s October, and—nope, that’s all the justification we need. I like horror movies, and I will take any excuse to think about them.

There was a period in my life when I jotted down notes on movies I saw, partly because I’d read about Peter Bogdanovich’s youthful habit of keeping movie notes on file cards. Now I keep a movie diary on my blog. I looked up some of these notes I’d kept from a weekend I spent watching Hammer Pictures’ Dracula films, having sustained a bruised ankle from a softball incident (an incident stemming from the fact that I have a lifelong inability to stop a softball with my glove).
