I posted under the duplicate story but it discappeared. In essence, I wish I knew the name of the comic book creator who came up with the idea that Godzilla was actually a Lovecraftian entity, an Elder God. Quentintino has some hilarious but fascinating ideas. Life under Godzilla. I love it. I'd actually see a film like that, probably several times.

The Mother Darkness films are incredible. Inferno has some creepy witch in it doesn't it? The guy who gets attacked by rats in Central Park and ends up having his throat cut by the Hot Dog vendor. Argento shoots set pieces out of thin air. You can never second guess him. My favourite scene which I think is from Suspiria is The Blind Music Teacher walking his dog through a town plaza, and the camera is flying overhead and suggesting that one of the nearby Gargoyles is about to come alive and attack, then there's a split cut to the dog jumping up at him and ripping his throat out. Mad.

I've wanted to see this movie ever since I read about it on IMDB, but for some strange reason, there are NO copies in the video stores here and every time it's been on TV I've missed out. Maybe I'll just have to try that renting via mail.

Damn, I'm exhausted just reading about all that. Thanks for the tip about Argento. Hmmm... that reminds me about the strange dream I had the other nite after reading about "Sex Nite" of the QT fest. Apparantly Harry had opened some (literally) underground sex museum that he was giving us all a tour of, but it was just this (literally) dirty mall/porn shop/zoo that he he didn't really have anyting to do with. The clincher was when we came to what was being called the "Alien Monkey House" ("See them $%#@") but was really just a bunch of small, pissed-off, grubby-looking Teletubbies, and we were all apalled because, surely, it must be children or short people in those suits. OK, now I KNOW I've been coming to this site too much.

Thank you, Morrie. This piece was just incredible great for all of us who couldn't get to Austin to hear Tarantino's obviously fabulous discourse. I'm am appalled at the lack of response to this superior missive. To grind out 1,700,000 illustrative words and be rewarded with a pathetic five talkbacks in 12 hours is horrifying (if oddly familiar). Thank Christ you did it though, because I feel like I got the best part of this night without having to drag my ass to Texas in August. Viva McWeeny! Viva!!
