Horror Movie a Day: Week 5

Image

So I’m changing things up this week.  After a month of not only watching a horror movie every day, but also writing a 1000-2500 word article on each film each day, I realized that was crazy.  So what I’m doing now is keeping a running list, and each week I’ll update the list.  In addition, I’ll do a little bit of art based around my favorite film or films from that week.  Obviously this week was all about Marina De Van’s movies In My Skin and Dark Touch, both which pretty much floored me.  Oddly I stopped writing about these movies when I got to these films.  But I think at some point I might like to write a long piece on her films since there’s only one left for me to see, and so far I’ve found them all hugely inspiring and very useful with what I do with my art.

Anyways.

    Dear Sarah, I’ve been jonesing for your daily horror posts, looking forward to the next batch. I’ve been following your work for the past year. You have an admirable approach to critical thinking in whatever medium you choose to write about with a strong personal aesthetic basis that does not conflict with your seeking the heart and subtleties of another’s work. I try not to be entertained anymore. I am an artist who treats all art created by others as an occasion to commune with the minds of other artists, to educate myself in order to be a better artist, and to better approach the question of what art is- and from my reading of your critical work, I believe you are as well. Every time I read your critical work I’m inspired in my own endeavors. I hope to get some of your creative work as well as soon as soon as circumstances permit, but what I’ve already seen is no less strong than your critical writing. Keep working, every damn day of your life. Work alone will save you, and help others to save themselves as well.
