This review is a bit late because I couldn’t set aside the time to watch the film, and because I was dreading it. The comments I got from other reviewers were not conducive, although my colleague D.K. Holm had a favorable opinion. This is really two movies. First, a husband and wife (Dafoe and Gainsbourg), identified only as He and She, are making hot love while their toddler falls from a window to his death. This sequence is one of the most beautiful I have seen in a film in a while, in radiant black-and-white and accompanied by gorgeous music.
Our final Halloween offering is a reairing of one of Gremlin Time's original programs from back in the early 1980s, which we would reair even then around this time of year. 'The Cat Man' by Byron Liggett and presented by RED RYDER. An author named Foster comes to the South Pacific to find solitude on an island he has purchased, where he can live and write. He hires the story's narrator, Capt. Rogers, to transport himself, his belongings and about six, male and female cats to the isolated atol. Over the next three years, Rogers watches in horror as the felines multiple into the hundreds, and is unable to stop fate's appalling inevitability.
Our Second Halloween offering is a classic monster story by science fiction writer Theodore Sturgeon, entitled 'IT'. An allegorical fantasy about a man-like plant creature who grew out of a swamp and begins roaming the countryside destroying anything or anyone it comes across. Most threaten is the Drew family living in a nearby farm. Unaware of the danger, the Drew's nine year old daughter, Babe, sneaks out of the house to meet up with her uncle in their secret hiding place in the woods. But her uncle has already by killed and torn apart by the brute strength of the mute, and uncaring mold with a mind.
