What kind of movie did I discover when I could finally see Litan at home? The plot follows a geologist who arrives at the town of Litan the very day of the Feast of the Dead. This was a surprise, because I did not expect to recognise in this movie some of the Franju’svisuals, as well as his rhetoric of the uncanny: an oppressive and mysterious environment, characters wearing numerous masks, macabre dances and conspiracies of secret societies.
