You're on a roll with this series in picking films that I haven't seen. And I mean that as a good thing...

Great choice.

This film scared the crap out of me, it's such a haunting and well-paced film.

Nothing quite gets me like the thing at the bottom of the bed though. How scary was that?

Steve Langton said...

Another great choice. The UK two discer is one of the prides of my collection. Very scary, beautifully acted and the comprehensive extras bestow reverential treatment on this essential film.

Thanks James,
This film is amazing. Hope you can give it a look.

Thanks Ibetolis,
Glad to hear you admire the film as well. It is a truly disturbing and ingenious work that is quite haunting.

Thanks Steve,
Glad you mentioned the extras...that second disc has so much substance on it that it is hard to go back to the usual fluffy EPK's that usually pass off as extras.

I just participated in a SIGHT & SOUND article where various critics were asked to name or concoct their favorite double feature. I picked the old HORROR CHAMBER OF DR. FAUSTUS and THE MANSTER combo, but after revisiting A TALE OF TWO SISTERS through your frame grabs, I find myself sorely wishing that I had thought to combine A TALE OF TWO SISTERS and THE DOUBLE LIFE OF VÉRONIQUE. Now THAT would be quite a double feature!

Thanks Tim,
You've just given me two double feature ideas! I have several with PICNIC AT HANGING ROCK and THE VIRGIN SUICIDES probably being my favorite...

Never seen this one, but the shots look amazing. I'll definitely have to add it to my queue. I'm a big fan of Asian cinema.
