Truly "awe" - full ... Certainly creative!

so we all know that the first two demons movies are pretty much as good as it's going to get. i am not going to lie to you after seeing all (seven?) 'demons' movies, I can truly say that the first two entires are masterpieces and the rest are an eclectic bastard lovechildish creative, bad, and completely crazy entries. This movie is so awful in a good way. It's also pretty hard to track down (insert obvious reasons.) It's referred too as like 7 different titles, but the one I was watching was English dubbed audio with Japanese hard subtitles. The movie shamelessly poses as 'Suspiria 2' but at the same time also seems to acknowledge what they're doing is pretty awful so they throw in a lot of funny crazy effects to distract you from the plot that includes a grand total of 4-5 people and pacing that fluctuates between wayyyyy to slow and holy crap what just happened and why? it's not as good as the first two demons movies, but if you like to chuckle at a truly goofy and poorly made movie, this movie is a gold nugget. There's so many unintentionally hilarious moments you can't capture unless you are truly trying to make a serious effort and it just unfolds like a pile of unsorted laundry. Pretty much anything you can think may or may not explode and smoke and leak green worms and intestines WILL AND SHALL. That part's never really explained but a lot of other things are. Hilarious dated effects guaranteed to open your eyes wider than a syfy movie creature shot. I had a fun time with it :) "i'm in the mirror. No - i'm in the rifridgerator , Wait - I'm back in the mirror *blarchhhhh*"

More Cozzi Chaos

I've just finished watching the late eighties Italian horror The Spider Labyrinth, which was a film devoid of cheese. This film, however, is like watching a slice of Gouda. But there's a place for films like this too, and I enjoyed it. Some sort of sequel to Suspira/Inferno, it features some film makers getting together to make a film about Levanna, the Mother of Tears. Actress and new mother Ana is all set for the part, probably because her husband is the director, which makes script writer Dan's wife very jealous (and she's played by Caroline Munro, for the record). Things start getting immediately weird when Ana starts having visions of a grape faced lady (you heard me) coming out of a mirror and attacking here. Seems that Levanna is real and wants to come back into our world, which involves Ana and her baby and that. You know the drill. I though it was funny when Levanna started haunting Ana's fridge and then formed a vision of a fake repairman coming to fix it! That's just cruel. Also Bret Halsey's in this because perhaps Lucio Fulci had momentarily lost his phone number. Anyway, the director guy and the screenwriter get in contact with some medium, who warns them off, and that's when Levanna goes nuts and starts wasting everybody, causing the medium's guts to explode out of her body, just like in Cozzi's Contamination! By this time there's also a little girl contacting Ana via a television to help her, but Levanna makes this TV explode and then spew up intestines (you heard me there too). Things then start getting pretty unpredictable and VERY eighties, visually, but Cozzi may not be the best fan of reality, but he can sure pour on the madness and crazy set pieces. Whether or not this is a better sequel that Mother of Tears is up to you. Both are very cheesy and the later film was a lot gorier, but it also had Asia Argento in it and didn't really have the tone of Suspiria or Inferno, whereas this one is more similar in look and feel. That's up to you. Luigi Cozzi sure had a thing for Caroline Munro, eh? In this film, you get to see her take a bath, wear lingerie, put varnish on her nails, have sex and get leggy while getting into a car. For the record, my favourite Munro moment is the musical number she does in Don't Open Til Christmas.

Interesting take on Suspiria mythos

This film bears the title of Demons 6, with either a title of Armageddon or De Profundis, with the latter being the more apt title. However, the film itself holds no real connections to Demoni 1 or 2 or any of the other in name only sequels. The only real connection to the demons films is that the leading man from Demoni, Urbano Barberini, plays the husband to the leading lady. Instead, this film is a loose sequel to Argento's, at the time unfinished, Three Mothers Trilogy. All of which are loosely based on a section of Thomas de Quincey's Suspiria De Profundis (which even makes an appearance!) entitled "Levana and our ladies of Sorrow". Luigi Cozzi's script even acknowledges the existence of Argento's film Suspiria and extends on the idea that the three ladies of sorrow are evil witches who rule the world. Specifically focusing on Mater Lachrymarum, The Mother of Tears. The film centers around Anna Raveanna (Florence Guérin) who is an actress who is set to play the witch Levana in a film that her husband Marc (Urbano Barberini) is making. Levana is not pleased with this and declares that Anna will never be her on the screen and begins spreading madness into Anna's world and using those around her to do her bidding - including kidnapping and planning to sacrifice Anna's newborn baby. There are plenty of similarities between this film and Argento's eventual final film in the trilogy which begs the question of if Luigi had at some point read an early draft of 'The Mother of Tears'. The two share a few common themes, such as a supernatural mentor (Argento's version was her dead mother who was a witch, and in Cozzi's the mentor is a fairy who mentions that fairies and witches are about the same) who eventually guides the leading lady on how to use her own powers to stop Mater Lachrymarum. Even the death of Mater Lachrymarum in both versions are strikingly similar. While this film is nowhere near as good as Suspiria, it is a decent if not official entry in the 'Three Mother Trilogy'. Yes, it has its silly parts (the refrigerator) but it also has its accomplishments. It also of course helps that they chose a great theme song for the film, which is almost as haunting as the original Suspiria theme and attempt to recreate (although not as well) the colored nightmare atmosphere of the superior Suspiria. And of course, there is plenty of gore!
