Sample text

Slow and full of amusing twists, it leaves room for the grotesque. Horror elements are slowly introduced: a tooth stashed in the wall, people standing motionless, frozen stares through the window. The film proposes memorable shots depicting the mystery of paranoia, so subtlety done that laughter or terror both seem credible. • - 29 - The Omen (USA, 1976) Richard Donner Kathy gives birth to a dead baby and her husband replaces it with an orphan. As time goes by, the identity of the unknown child will leave them in dismay.

The hotel’s evil influence, isolation and his inner demons push him to a torrent of violence against his wife and son, who are also victims of terrifying supernatural phenomena. The film, not well-received when released, gained devotees and veneration over the years. As in other films by Kubrick, the main drama hides infinite metaphoric representations with diffused psychological quests on human nature and the ever-present evil within. • - 35 - The Changeling (Canada, 1980) Peter Medak A composer who has just lost his family discovers a secret room in the lonely house in which he chose to isolate himself.

The director’s succinct focus forsakes glamour in order to achieve a strong narrative. This film achieved a record only shared with two other movies in the history of cinema: five main Academy Awards (best film, director, screenplay, actor in leading role and actress in leading role). Antony Hopkins, returning to the forefront of world cinema, gives a stunning performance as a cannibalistic psychiatrist. • - 41 - Interview with the Vampire: The Vampire Chronicles (USA, 1994) Neil Jordan While the traditional approach to vampires had only exploited their horrifying aspect, this film takes the risk of observing the monster from another perspective.
