Piccolo ma dignitoso film, poco trascinante sul piano emotivo ma decisamente amplificato su quello visivo. Suoni, luci e ombre ed un unica vera star: la casa. Una dimora fastosa e solitaria, divorata da personaggi fruscianti, dove tutto viene rappresentato alla deriva e dove non sembra esserci alcuna possibilità di salvezza e redenzione. Una ghost story che sente un po' il peso del tempo ma che ancora si può permettere il lusso di regalare qualche sano e sincero brivido. Curtis non si smentisce. La casa delle ombre maledette, 1971.
NIGHT OF DARK SHADOWS poster - A young artist, Quentin Collins (David Selby) inherits a mansion that has been in his family for generations, and he moves into the house with his wife, Tracy (Kate Jackson). Soon Quentin becomes tormented by strange, dark dreams that seem to echo his clan's macabre history. Eventually, the ghost of Angelique (Lara Parker), one of Quentin's ancestors, appears, and he starts to take on bizarre and violent behavior.
Initial release: August 3, 1971 #darkshadows#nightofdarkshadows
Tagged by @brian_jus2tired @shaaybelle and @horrorheadx for a retro horror ad. When I got tagged for this it took me back to my days at uni where I shared a house with 4 other guys who, much like me, had a love for old movie posters and special ads/cinema billings. Every room had a different genre of framed posters on the wall and horror lined the walls of the stairs. We had grindhouse double feature posters, classics like the blob and blaxploitation flicks like blacula and a host of others. I did try to find photos of it but had no luck, so instead I've got pics of the 2 posters I definitely remember us having and an old advert I found online because I couldn't find any of the special feature ones we had.
