Keep Halloween Weird!

This year's quick entry to suggest a few films for those tired of the usual cinematic scares:

As with last year's reccomendations, these choices go best with an open mind and a healthy sugar-buzz. For a mild starter, I think we need to turn to the truly weird and artistically singular French purveyor of somewhat silly, soft-core vampire/torture/art films, Jean Rollin:

1.  Requiem for a Vampire, dir. Jean Rollin (1971)

Maybe more disoriented than frightened, you might then be perfectly primed to check out one of the most indelibly terrifying films ever made:

2.  Begotten, dir. E. Elias Merhige (1990)

And, if you make it through that, bring on the candy grab bag!  This recent horror omnibus has something for all tastes (even those with no taste):

3.  The ABC's of Death, featuring a different director for each letter of the alphabet, including Ti West, Yudai Yamaguchi, Angela Bettis, Noboru Iguchi, and Ben Wheatley (2012)

Happy Halloween!  Keep it Weird, and Stay Ecstatic!
