I grew up with a small fascination for most things scary. Not real life evening news scary, but more along the lines of the unexplained macabre (ie: vampires, werewolves and ghosts). Having shared that you should also know that I have big love for 1970's fright films, something about the mix of vague and often confusing storyline, strange organ based soundtracks and interesting styles of dress. A favorite, 'Daughters of Darkness' (1971), was first introduced by my dear friend Thomas♥ and while it's a bit gory and the plot tends to leave more questions than answers, it's worth watching around the Halloween season if only for the creepy atmosphere and the dramatic fashion sense... the plot centers around four main characters. A Hungarian Countess, her assistant and a newlywed couple during a stay in the same hotel in Ostend, Belgium.
