What are people saying?

  • Lights in the Dusk's rating of the film Hex

    A gonzo Shaw Bros. produced remake of Clouzot's Les diaboliques from the director of Killer Constable. Like that film, imagery & atmosphere are rich & unusual; blending a slow-burn domestic drama with ghosts, murder & a 'psychedelic' exorcism. The visual style, with its prowling camera & disarming tonal shifts between slapstick comedy, violent abuse & supernatural mystery predict the early films of Jackson & Raimi.
