Has anyone seen this?
I bought it on a rather odd premise: Marilyn Manson borrowed some elements from the conceptof the movie to base his rock persona on. As Manson has introduced me to a lot of things I wouldn't otherwise be aware of that I later enjoyed, I thought I'd give it a shot.
It's... uh, one of the strangest movies I've ever seen in my life, and I've seen a lot of strange movies. It's not overtly surreal - in fact, it's filmed in almost a made-for-TV style. But it's beautiful for all of that, speaking to childhood innocence lost. I'm not sure I'd call it a horror movie, although it (superficially) deals with vampires. That said, it's definitely horrific on a level few actual horror films begin to reach.
Do you know the terror of he who falls asleep?
To the very toes he is terrified
For the ground gives way under him
And the dreams begin...
