While Scout Tafoya keeps the Cannes flame alive with the latest edition of our ’68 Comeback Special (which means I’ll be doing one next week during the Late Movies Blogathon — how will I do it? stay tuned!), dealing with Bahrudin Cengic’s PLAYING SOLDIERS, over at The Forgotten I’m just mucking about this time, with Arthur Davidson/Jose Luis Madrid’s THE HORRIBLE SEXY VAMPIRE. Drop in and assess the shits/giggles ratio.

A Polish adaptation of Scottish author James Hogg’s The Private Memoirs and Confessions of a Justified Sinner (often abbreviated to Confessions of a Justified Sinner, which makes it sound uncomfortably like a Robin Askwith comedy) allows me to look into the unlucky cinematic history of this peculiar work, over at The Notebook in this fortnight’s edition of The Forgotten.
And at Apocalypse Now, Scout Tafoya continues the ’68 Comeback Special, our report on the abortive Cannes Film Festival of that year, with an impassioned and personal encounter with Jan Nemec’s Kafkaesque A REPORT ON THE PARTY AND THE GUESTS. Go!
A Halloween double feature — over at Apocalypse Now, Scout Tafoya continues our Cannes ’68 Comeback Special with a look at Kaneto Shindo’s KURONEKO, the spookiest of all entries at the Cannes That Never Was.
And at The Notebook, this fortnight’s Forgotten delves into some more very strange goings-on in the Land of the Rising Sun. You want monsters? We got monsters! (And cat ghost vampire women too!)
In the US, you can buy KURONEKO thusly: Kuroneko (The Criterion Collection) [Blu-ray]
In the UK, so: KURONEKO (Masters of Cinema) (BLU-RAY)
