Mas não é só terror
Leading horror news source Bloody Disgusting have treated fans of The Exorcist early this Halloween, publishing never-before-seen test footage from the set, circa 1972. While snippets were previously featured in Linda Blair’s A&E biography, this is the first time the fascinating and ultra rare footage has been released in its entirety after being kept under wraps for 40 years.
In the first part of four clips, Linda Blair can be seen giggling as she is thrown around by the mechanical rig built by Marcel Vercoutere - an eerie sight knowing it would later cause Blair great distress. It’s also interesting to note the early wallpapered design of Regan’s bedroom which was changed to a more monochromatic colour scheme, adding a subliminal dread to the final possession sequences.
Head over to Bloody Disgusting to watch the footage, and keep an eye out for parts two, three and four coming over the next few days!
eu deixo minhas coisas por aí
porque tenho medo de deixar na minha casa
por aí, eu não fico esquecido
em casa, eu fico sozinho
The scariest dream sequence in horror history is in Rosemary’s Baby. You know the one. The scene when Mia Farrow’s completely lovable Rosemary Woodhouse is raped in the night by — you guessed it — Satan. It’s just so… dark, and cruel, and nightmarish. And the way she wakes up with the scratches all over her, undoubtedly put there by the (apparently very frisky, but who isn’t from time to time?) Prince of Darkness himself, is just so damn creepy.
The imagery of the dream is blurry and, at times, almost indiscernible. It’s an intentional artistic choice by director Roman Polanski and, for the record, a very good one. Polanski, whose films Repulsion and (of course) this one you should check out immediately if you never have before, is as talented a “horror” guy as you’ll ever find and this film is probably his finest work. Rosemary’s Baby is scary, it’s funny, it’s suspenseful, and it’s totally, completely, entirely brilliant. It’s a true classic of the genre and I really can’t even begin to tell you how much I dig it. It’s finally coming to blu-ray next month and I really need a copy.
