Well, I, for one, am glad you are still around, not least because that means I wasn’t responsible for your absense.

/b/ is fun once in a while, same with /tv/, but that wears off rather quickly, at least with /b/. I find the smaller to medium-sized boards are the most interesting ones nowadays.

Come discuss 80s horror.

>inb4 this is not sapphic. The horror genre in particular has been far more inclusive of queer themes than most and for longer than the current year fad of being allies found in today's mainstream offerings so suck a dick if you have a problem with it.

Yeah, Cameron brought along several people who worked on Galaxy of Terror onto Aliens as well; the Skotak brothers for example – they did the special effects of the ship and planet exterior, and they did the same on Aliens.

Corman produced another Alien-inspired film in 1982: Forbidden World. This film is really, really cheap and trashy though – the sets are laughable, the story even flimsier than the cardboard sets, and the characters flatter still. Corman was known for reusing sets, so it is a real shame he didn’t to that with Forbidden World, so it didn’t feel so cheap.

It is somewhat entertaining though, and there is a scene where the two only girls are in a shower room, stark naked, washing each other, so it is at least another /sapphic/ film.

>The Happy Days chick got a terrifying death.

I think hers and Taaffe’s character’s deaths were supposed to be switched originally, but since she was on Happy Days she couldn’t do any nudity, so they had to come up with a different death scene for her. And you are right, her death was probably the worst of them all.

Taaffe’s scene with ‘Maggie’ was apparently done with a body double as well.

>So what happened to Ranger (Englund)? He confronted and overcame his fears. But then Cabren becomes the master by killing the old master and we never see what happens to Ranger. Unless I zoned out or already forgot.

No, you are correct, we never get to know what happens to Ranger (Englund’s character); Cabren goes on and leaves Ranger behind, and that is the last we see of him. It feels weird to end it like that – he seemed to overcome his fears, so he probably didn’t die from some terror caused by his mind.

Have you seen Parasite from 1982? It was Demi Moore’s first big role apparently.

Definitely watched this more than once as well when younger. Loved it. Have read some Jack London (a short story or two) but not read this one yet. I liked Ethan Hawke for years too. But ever since Before the Devil.. I've found him kind of repulsive. I think the only movie that wasn't too bad was Before Midnight.

<“As far as I knew, there was only me and a woman called Sappho,” the critic Judith Butler once remarked.

Wew lad. Must be hard to live with such a humble nature as this.

<Four centuries after her death, scholars at the Library of Alexandria catalogued nine “books”—papyrus scrolls—of Sappho’s poems, organized primarily by metre.

This still kills me, thinking about everything that was lost there.

IK, just all this knowledge about the ancient Greek world gone forever, with only some remnants surviving. Sad!

>On the question of how personal her poems were; I imagine that, if she was writing poems referencing her brothers by name then, at least some of her poems were personal.

I looked up one of her devotees from Roman times, the poet Catullus, and his article says that he wrote chiefly in the neoteric style of poetry, which is about personal life rather than classical heroes.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Catullus

Sappho isn’t listed as one of the Greek Neoterics, but she ought to, since epic poetry about heroes was the norm.

Everything from HookTube/YouTube embeds to WebMs & mp4 and everything else music related – not necessarily sapphic in nature, though that is a big plus.

Listening to t.A.T.u. is a guilty pleasure of mine – there are quite a few witch house remixes of their songs worth checking out too. The music video to All The Things She Said is probably the most famous lesbian-themed music video of all time.

But in all seriousness, I think you’ve got Poppy wrong; the perfect Barbie doll plastic look and colours is a (good-looking) façade – if you take her behaviour, and most importantly her texts you will see that she is very subversive and nonconforming.

<Even the helpful tomte, nisse, gårdbo or gårdbuk could turn into a fearsome adversary if not treated with caution and respect.

I remember about 8 years ago I had a dream where I was kind of in a mess and driving erratically. I drove into a mail box or something. The Green Man cam out of his house and talked to me. It was incredible. He was benevolent but also a sense of danger. I was cautious and refused to enter the house. Then a bus came along for me to get on and I can't remember the exact figures but they were underworld beings and very friendly. It was like the bus full of beings offered protection. I woke up feeling so much better than when I had gone to sleep.

The only Green Man I know of was Raymond Robinson aka Charlie No-Face, who was badly injured in an accident as a child and was so badly disfigured he would only go outside after dark – a very sad story: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Raymond_Robinson_%28Green_Man%29

Not at all sure how to interpret that dream, but then most dreams are just a mishmash of feelings, ideas and memories we have been thinking about recently.

I mentioned a docu on Pompeii a while back, and some of the souvernirs based on ancient Roman practices reminded me a lot of the nisse from Scandinavian folklore, with their pointy red hats. I think Anne Holtsmark mentioned in her updated (actually almost completely rewritten) edition of Norrøn Mytologi (Norse Mythology) that nisser (plural) seem to have their origin in Roman folklore/myths, and that they were some kind of guardian spirit protecting the home and family, which is what they do in our folklore as well – unless they are provoked of course, then they are rather unfriendly and possibly dangerous.

>You won't let me get away with anything will you?

Just looking for a straight answer :^)

>Ok, I think I'd have to go with vampiresses

I guess your answer begs the question: Is she really into you, or just after your blood?

The fable of the scorpion and the frog also comes to mind – can she fight her nature and not kill you? Wouldn’t she just be using her feminine wiles to get your blood and leave you for a stiff?

That is one of the interpretations of the story in Låt den rätte komma in aka Let the Right One In (2008); is Eli really in love with Oskar, or is she just using him? Since she became a vampire so young she can’t kill her victims so easily, so she has someone who helps her and protects her and looks after her during daytime. It could be that Oskar will take over that role anPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

That is sad indeed. But at least it's written that he had good family and neighbours.

I took it as telling me that my current suffering at that time was superficial and I'd be fine. I love having dreams where I meet or interact with these things, but they are few and far between.

>but then most dreams are just a mishmash of feelings, ideas and memories we have been thinking about recently.

That's why it stuck out. I had not at all been thinking of anything to do with the Green Man or otherworldy stuff. It was an odd dream.

>I guess your answer begs the question: Is she really into you, or just after your blood?

Well, I guess as long as I stick to the moving image I should be safe.

>That is one of the interpretations of the story in Låt den rätte komma in aka Let the Right One In (2008)

I never ended up watching this or the remake. The idea of watching children vampires doesn't appeal to me. Everyone says the original is great though. Do you think I should watch it?

>Btw., do you think vampire Willow from the alternate dimension would be a vampire witch?

Vampire Willow appeared to be dumber than a box of hammers. I doubt she would have the discipline to learn witchcraft. Then again, with all that time on her hands maybe at some point in the future she would pick it up.

Idunno, man. I would probably consider ending it if I ended up like that. Not being able to outside during daytime, blinded & horribly disfigured, and missing one arm…

Aye. I would love to be able to achieve lucid dreaming ‘on command’… It just sounds so interesting to be able to have (some) control of your dreams.

>Well, I guess as long as I stick to the moving image I should be safe.

2D vampiresses? Safe but boring tbh.

>I never ended up watching this or the remake. The idea of watching children vampires doesn't appeal to me. Everyone says the original is great though. Do you think I should watch it?

I really liked the original film. Unlike a lot of vampire films it manages to stay somewhat grounded in reality in terms of tone and characters. It is also surprisingly dark. In a way it is a dark romance about two outsiders who find each other. Then there is the alternate view that Eli is manipulating Oskar into replacing Håkan, her previous ‘helper’.

I think Eli genuinely cared for Håkan, and that they met when he was about the same age as her – as the years passed though, I think they grew apart – he became older while she stays forever young. Unless Eli ends up turning Oskar at some point history will likely repeat itself…

Like Fucking Åmål it feels a lot more real and honest in a way that English speaking films do for me. The snowy setting also helps.

If you do get around to seeing it, I’d like to hear your take on the ending and Oskar & Eli’s relationship – and what you think of Eli not being like other girls.

I’ve got the film on DVD, and there is an audio commentary track with the director & writer – the writer also wrote the book the film is based onPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

>Rachel Weisz completely phoned in this one. Unless it was her aim to come across as a wooden, sociopathic, dead eyed character.

Well, her estranged father has just died, she never got to say goodbye, and it turns out he did not forgive her or want to leave her anything, and she is staying with relatives and friends who do not want her there (with the exception of Dovid, perhaps, & Esti).

>Why if they are so in love with each other did Esti not travel back to America with Ronit?

I hadn’t thought about it until you brought it up, but this film is essentially Saving Face, only in an Orthodox Jewish setting instead of a Chinese-American community. But whereas Saving Face had likeable characters and humour, this does not.

>I'm not sure why Ronit felt entitled to her father's house.

Really? Blood is thicker than water… We have a law called ‘odelsrett’, which has existed since Norse times (and perhaps before that), and says that the oldest child inherits land owned by their parents – furthermore it cannot be sold out of the family without the closest kin having their say in the matter, and the right to buy it before it can be sold to outsiders. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Odelsrett

The phrase “May you live a long life?”… Am I right in assuming that is some kind of back-handed compliment or a downright insult? I remember a similar phrase in 300, where King Leonidas tells a traitor “May you live forever”, which was a grave insult to a Spartan, a very warrior-focused people who saw dying in battle as almost an honour.

Why Ronit didn’t stay at a hotel instead is beyond me. The awkwardness, the troubled past, being surrounded by people who obviously doesn’t want you there…

>We have a law called ‘odelsrett’, which has existed since Norse times

I think there are similar things around the West but it would be 'next of kin' rather than eldest. And only as the default if there were no Will. The Will should be respected. This is from my tv and movie watching wisdom and probably has no bearing in reality though. Children fight legally to have their parents wills overturned in court like against Anna Nicole (sp) Smith's husband's Will. My maternal grandfather had a new family before I was born and not much to do with his first family. He left everything to the second family. My mum didn't fight it.

I suppose Ronit could have fought legally for something but I still found it a reach that she expected anything. She was disowned. She's the daughter of a Rabbi in an orthodox Jewish community. She left the community, is a woman, and queer. Presumably from what we are shown, she has had no contact with him since she left. Why would she expect anything?

>The phrase “May you live a long life?”… Am I right in assuming that is some kind of back-handed compliment or a downright insult?

I assumed it was a way for them to tell her that although outcast, they wished her no harm while she was there.

>I haven't seen that in so long. I only remember it being entirely too cute. Will have to give it another watch.

It wasn’t as grim as this film, but it wasn’t ‘out there’ either from what I remember, and the two films are very similar, even the scene at the airport, the pregnancy, the disapproving elders…

>He left everything to the second family. My mum didn't fight it.

Good heavens! That shit would not fly here. The idea of ‘blood and soil’ is too ingrained in us, I think – you have land owned by the same family for generations, passed down from father to oldest son – and now to oldest child, so women are included in the law. I think women losing the odelsrett was introduced when Christendom took over; before that they could inherit, sell or buy land as they saw fit.

In any case, the connection to the land where your family has lived for hundreds of years is very important here. A London flat would obviously not have the same importance, but the idea that your parent didn’t leave you a thing is very hard to fathom.

>I assumed it was a way for them to tell her that although outcast, they wished her no harm while she was there.

Or maybe an English greeting is a further sign of her being an outcast? Maybe an ‘insider’ would be greeted otherwise, maybe in Hbrew (or Yiddish?)?

>Ewh no. I still hate that movie.

>Her eyes creep me out.

Her eyes are gorgeous – she almost has that thing too IMHO. That look in her eyes, and her smile… wew!

Macarena has it too, of course, and even more intense – her smile could rival Mona Lisa’s tbh.

The two first films are fantastic, and Brides is perhaps more enjoyable than the original despite Lee not returning as count Dracula. The following films does not feature Cushing as Van Helsing till Dracula A.D. 1972, and Lee’s mostly, if not completely, silent Dracula doPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

Boy is that a blast from the past. One of our tv channels used to have a Sat night line up in the 90s.

>Hammer show

>Old 70/80s European horror movie

>Eat Carpet (a show featuring short clips and films by indie film makers/animators)

It was a great line up. Of course I can't remember anything beyond how good the line up was. Would love to see the Hammer series again. I wish I could find out the movies they used to show as well.

Actually, now that I think about it the Hammer series that was played before the movie each week, might have been a doco series. Or maybe a presenter talked about Hammer stuff before presenting each episode.

Sounds like I really missed out; none of the TV channels here showed anything worthwhile back in the day. if they did something similar nowadays I would watch it for sure; a sexy vampiress horror host and some classic horror film would be a welcomed change from all the crap they broadcast these days.

The Hammer House of Horror series might be one to keep on watching then. I think one or two of the episodes are said to be quite good.

>I wish I could find out the movies they used to show as well.

Unfortunately, none at all. I just remember they tended to be European. The most I can remember is an Italian (I think) one set near a castle.

>For real? Sounds like a missed opportunity to show some sapphic kino tbh, or maybe it would be a little too on the nose.

Ha yes for real. I'm sure they had some sapphic/queer content included. I just can't remember.

So I just looked it up and you'll never guess where the name came from…

<The name appears to come from an anecdote about Adolf Hitler, recounted by a diplomat who, while waiting for an audience, saw, through a partly open door, Hitler throw himself down on the floor and start biting the carpet. William Shirer, in his book Inside the Third Reich, says the diplomat subsequently referred to Hitler with the pejorative German word Teppichfresser, which translates as 'carpet eater' or 'carpet gobbler'. The term denotes utter madness.

Certainly not the reference I thought it made all these years.

AND someone has made at least the first episode available it seems.

Hitler was a carpet muncher.

Here are some of the films, TV shows & webseries discussed so far, in the WebM threads over at /tv/:

Dracula’s Daughter (1936) – probably the first film to hint at the lesbian vampire trope. A surprisingly good sequel to Universal’s original ‘Dracula’ film in its own right.

The Vampire Lovers (1970) – Hammer’s adaptation of the ‘Carmilla’ novel by J. Sheridan Le Fanu. Arguably the best adaptation of the story, & with some very good performances, especially from Ingrid Pitt as Marcilla/Carmilla. Stars Ingrid Pitt, Madeline Smith & Hammer regular Peter Cushing. Highly recommended; this may just be the best lesbian vampire film out there. Shout! Factory’s Blu-ray release features an audio commentary track with director Roy Ward Baker, (screen) writer Tudor Gates & actress Ingrid Pitt, excerpts from the story read by Ingrid Pitt, and interviews with Madeline Smith and Hammer scholars.

Lust For a Vampire (1971) – The sequel to ‘The Vampire Lovers’, though it disregards continuity somewhat and all main characters are recast. The very interesting audio commentary with Hammer historian Marcus Hearn, director Jimmy Sangster & actress Suzanna Leigh is worth listening to as well. Honourable(?) mention goes to ‘Twins of Evil’ (1971), which is the third and final instalment of Hammer’s ‘Karnstein Trilogy’, though the character of Carmilla is hardly in it at all, and there is nothing sapphic about it all. Worth a watch if you want to see the ever-awesome Cushing as a witch-hunter, and some beautiful twins in various state of undress.

Fucking Åmål aka Show Me Love (1998) – A Swedish award-winning drama directed by Lukas Moodyson that ‘follows the lives of two seemingly disparate teenage girls who begin a tentative relationship’. Captures the feeling of growing up in a small-town in Scandinavia in the late ’90s and the love-troubles of the characters brilliantly and beautifully.

But I’m a Cheerleader (1999) – a satirical romantic comedy that pokes fun of ‘conversion therapy’/’pray the gay away’ camps. Stars Natasha Lyonne, Clea DuVall & Cathy Moriarty.

D.E.B.S. (2003) – ‘Made in 2003 right in the middle Post too long. Click here to view the full text.

Partial list of films we have discussed so far:

Et mouirir de plaisir (Blood and Roses) from 1960, an updated version of Le Fanu’s ‘Carmilla’

Compulsion – One of my favourites; very interesting film, beautifully filmed, and I think there is still a lot to discover about it. Think I will go back and give it another watch in the future.

The Neon Demon from 2016 – not as part of the film club, we keep getting back to this, for obvious reasons.

Room in Rome – I know you loathed this, and while I am not a fan, the scene where Alba is hit by the arrow by Amour, is one that really stuck with me. Beautifully filmed, very similar to Hitchcock’s Rear Window

Naked Killer – Uneven comedy action. Some really cool fight scenes, and a few very beautifully filmed scenes – especially when you remember the strict filming schedule they were working under.

Wir sind die Nacht (We are the Night)

Virgin Witch

Thelma – Very intersting film. I feel like we have barley scratched the surface with this.

Alena – Mostly a miss in my book. Loved the locales, but the story fell flat, and almost all the characters are assholes.

Tragedy Girls

Let’s Scare Jessica to Death

Vampyres – On my top five list of best sapphic vampire films. Really loved this one.

I wish I could say it was the latter, but I did cheat and went to the top and scrolled down. I think I could have listed them from memory, maybe not in chronological order though.

Of the films that were part of the film club, my faves are Compulsion & Thelma; the crème de la crème.

Found some interesting interviews with Can Evrenol, director of Housewife, btw. He cites Lucio Fulci & Dario Argento as his main inspirations, and one article described it as a giallo-styled horror

BO of the other board here, just finished can Housewife. Massive spoilers ahead.‎

The first parts reminded me of Amer (even the location of the weird ritual the mother participates in is similar, but with Amer being as derivative as it was it's possible that both were inspired by some earlier work. There's also the amulet and the repressed little girl) and Profondo Rosso (childhood trauma, mentalist that picks up the troubled mind in the crowd) a lot, and the follow up of Mandy (from the house with glass that lets you feel like in nature, to the spooky artist significant other, to the cult and even the horn, some things almost look like someone worked on both movies or something. Even the home invasion was similar), but this is its very own thing.

I'll drop a fuller review when I can but as a primer I'd like to mention that ‎one thing I noticed from the start was the fear to have a child. It's there from the moment the mother acts all horrified at the menstrual blood in Hazel's panties. It's also very similar to the plot of the second season of Fargo‎ in a way (woman agrees with her husband about having a kid but is secretly taking contraceptive pills, then a female friend drags her into a cult that somehow changes her fate forever and consequences will never be the same) but again it's very different in many ways. What really surprised me was the role it played in the end. I was expecting a rape scene, not a birth scene. Very well done and I didn't see it coming at any point. Maybe I was too cynical and expecting it to be like a more violent Mandy because of the cult leader/chosen woman theme.‎

I also wonder if she left the event and came back several times if it was one continuous session until she ran away. The whole search of the amulet seems to suggest it wasn't continuous but it's not very clear. Maybe it's supposed to be that was, to make things more oneiric. The revelation (or was it manipulation) that she murdered her sister reminded me of Kitty and Evelyn in La dama rossa uccide sette volte, except it's reversed here.

Originality would seem to be lacking if you look at the isolated elements of the film, but they were combined in a rather refreshing way. If it was a ripoff (I'm not saying it was but leaving the possibility open)Post too long. Click here to view the full text.

So I just finished S3 last night.

Whitney proposed to Sara and I laughed thinking they were probably separated by now. I actually softened towards Whitney by S3 because she seemed to mature and settle down. I even felt bad that I thought her marriage wouldn't last when I saw them exchanging vows in the final episode. Nek minute, I googled 'where are they now' and no surprises they are divorced already kek.

Meanwhile I found that Jill & Nikki have their own yt channel. They have kids! But they haven't uploaded in three years.

It is and at the same time it isn't Caligula. I mean it's been a few years since I saw it, but the gif looks like the inserts Bob Guccione produced. They bring nothing to the picture and are rather artless (Though I do admit to saving a couple of the lesbian centered webms. I can't say I watch them)

It is really. From what I recall, the actors did real well with Tinto Brass, it comes off as campy at times, but I, and no doubt you've, suffered through a lot worse. Really nice set direction.

Oh, I saw the "restored" version with all that crap taken out. Still plenty of nudity and implied sex, but more like some kind of Heavy Metal story.

Thanks for the essay, it looks great.

http://heimskringla.no/wiki/Main_Page contains a lot of the source texts (the Eddas in particular) in the original Old Norse, and often in the Scandinavian translations as well. There are also scholary texts, and sagas.

The Internet Archive is another great source for free texts on the topics: https://archive.org/

There is a very interesting YouTube series by Maria Kvilhaug that deals with the symbolism of the poems and myths in great detail, and I highly recommend giving her videos a watch. In particular she stresses the importance of translating the names of characters and places – left in their Old Norse (or Anglicised) form they mean nothing to a modern, non-Old Norse speaking reader. The translation of the names are extremely important if we want to understand what the poems and the myths are really telling us.

https://hooktube.com/watch?v=evE6aLg-_Q8&index=1&list=PLxDBGYdDmm2n7-nYh49d9qMJRZB8Z1qSa

One thing that most people don’t know about Norse mythology is that the Norsemen believed in a form of reincarnation/rebirth. It was custom that the oldest son would be given his paternal grandfather’s name, the second oldest son the name of his maternal grandfather, and similarly with the daughters; the oldest daughter would be named after her paternal grandmother, and the second oldest after her maternal grandmother. This would allow the spirit of the ancestors live on through their bloodline. In the sagas there are mentions of characters born with the same marks upon their body as their ancestors were inflicted with. In the Helgi poems in the Elder Edda, it is said that the two main characters are reborn and fall in love again and again – at least three times.
