The Cast of Cthulhu: Dark Waters
It’s a bit of a shame that there’s no James on this episode seeing as obscure foreign horror films are right up his alley, but we’ve got a Brian Muldoon from the Happy Harvest Horror Show to make up for it!
Who is Mariano Baino, the co-writer and director of the somewhat incoherent and possibly maybe blasphemous Dark Waters? Allegedly he’s the “unholy hybrid of Bergman and Argento” according to, uh…him probably? Anyway, as evidenced by this film, he’s clearly more interested in film as a visual medium than as a storytelling medium, leading to many haunting visuals, but many more “what the hell is happening?” moments.
