D.H.Moka To find the driver of the vintage mocha-colored Mercedes that killed her son in a hit-and-run, Diane (Emmanuelle Devos) travels to Evian, where she encounters Marlene (Nathalie Baye), a beautician and owner of the car. There, Diane poses as a potential buyer for the Mercedes, and slowly plots her path of revenge. Adapted from the bestselling novel by Tatiana de Rosnay ("Sarah's Key"), MOKA is a riveting psychological thriller reminiscent of Hitchcock and Polanski, which showcases the tremendous talents of two of France's best actresses.
D.H.This looks interesting.Seven SistersIn a not so distant future, where overpopulation and famine have forced governments to undertake a drastic One-Child Policy, seven identical sisters (all of them portrayed by Noomi Rapace) live a hide-and-seek existence pursued by the Child Allocation Bureau. The Bureau, directed by the fierce Nicolette Cayman (Glenn Close), enforces a strict family-planning agenda that the sisters outwit by taking turns assuming the identity of one person: Karen Settman. Taught by their grandfather (Willem Dafoe) who raised and named them - Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday - each can go outside once a week as their common identity, but are only free to be themselves in the prison of their own apartment. That is until, one day, Monday does not come home.

HORRORCRAM XIV: DaMU you all to Hell (General Discussion)
MKSI really dug the Forbidden Photos of a Lady Above Suspicion a lot. It's my first Ercoli and I believe it to be his first film, or at least his first giallo. He's not as formally accomplished as Bava or Argento, nor nearly as violent as Fulci, nor as politically minded as Lado. Despite the title, there's very little nudity (though I got the sense he has a Tarantino level foot fetish and his next film's title, Death Walks on High Heels may support that), and even less gore. What makes this movie stand out in the genre is it's subversive approach to the genre. It stands out because it shows you the villains face from the beginning, it teases the erotica but hides it, and it delivers it's story in a manner that firmly places you in the perspective of the protagonist. It's a giallo that survives because of it's plot and surprisingly it's acting. It would make a top list that captures the quintessence of the giallo but it is a nice little experiment. His following Death Walks films look less subversive but I'm more excited to give my copies a watch now.
Black PhilipI saw this really strange surreal horror/drama called Hypersomnia on Netflix. It's from Argentina and is about a girl who auditions and gets the role in a stage play about sex trafficking. The thing is we soon come to find out that everything isn't what it seems. Is is all a dream, another reality or just plain old hallucinations. Not that great but only 85 minutes long.

crumbsroom[img]https://s12.postimg.org/obdjzzu0d/Star-_Knight-vhs-294x500.jpg[/img]Harvey Keitel is a knight whose princess girlfriend gets abducted by an alien. When she returns she is no longer in love with poor Harvey since she has fallen for her extraterrestrial captor, a mute in a spacesuit whose only personality comes through in the curious tilts of his head and the languid blinks of his eyes. He is essentially a curious budgie from outer space with a terrible brush cut. Understandably Harvey Keitel is torn up, so he gets himself a new flashy suit of armour and proceeds to fall over a bunch of times because I guess wearing such flashy duds upsets his balance. He attacks the aliens space ship with a mace thinking its a dragon and falls over a couple more times. The princess turns out to be a total superficial dick, and when the two suitors finally joust for her love, nobody in all of middle earth could possibly care.
