He says: M is for Macabre

MACABREeffect2

I think the camera was always my obsession, the camera movements. Because for me it’s the most important thing in the movie, the camera, because without the camera, film is just a stage or television – nothing.

Dario Argento

I loved to watch horror movies growing up in the seventies.

And none more so than those directed by The Master of Macabre himself.

Dario Argento.

He carried me in to a world unlike any other.

Of hallucinations and disembodied sounds.

Of dark images and bright splashes of colour.

He doesn’t just make horror films. He makes beautiful horror films.

That will delight as they horrify.

If you doubt my word watch Suspiria.

M is for Macabre

Bad luck isn’t brought by broken mirrors, but by broken minds. – Suspiria (1977)

  3. She says… M is for Macbeth. I have written a short dialogue based on Shakespeare’s Macbeth and I wonder if you would let me borrow Jennifer and her luxurious freckled shoulders for the illustration. I am also interested in K is for King, as the reference is regal. I am not sure when it will be published or if the presentation will go over well, but I am working on it. Thank you and have a great Monday afternoon. x SB
