Oh, Our Italian Cousins

Happy creepy religious/personal/commercial holiday of your choice. Me, I'm gonna dress up like a pirate wench of questionable virtue (something was redundant there, but I'm not sure if it was me or the wench), hand out way too much candy to the neighborhood children, attempt to keep 8 cats and a kitten Kraken from getting outside during that process, and watch the hell out of some horror movies.

So, pretty much the same thing we do every night, Pinky, minus the Twizzlers and the black leather corset.

In conclusion, pie boobies blame Canada gingers have no souls Dutch people live in wooden shoes creepy icons! Which I haven't done in a while. This time, though, instead of Getty, I plundered Italian horror films, specifically Argento's Inferno and Fulci's The House By The Cemetery and The Beyond. So these could vaguely be considered spoilery for those three movies if you labor under the delusion that the storylines would make any sense to you whatsoever after watching the films let alone scrolling through a few icons.

These are by no means a representative sampling of every scene or iconic image; they're just visuals that I found spooky. Low on blood and pretty much free of gore because again, I like the creepy, not the gross. Warning for, um. Spiders, ginger kids, and supernaturally-induced cataracts?

Want/take/have/mutilate as desired.

Total Icon Count: 43

001 to 013: Dario Argento's Inferno

014 to 023: Lucio Fulci's The House By The Cemetery (pretty much all ginger kid, all the time, despite her not being the main character or even the main kid; it was that or decapitations and bat attacks, plus the main kid is DEEPLY ANNOYING)

024 to 043: Lucio Fulci's The Beyond (which also has a ginger kid, who's much less cute and gets much less screentime; OTOH the only lines she has are "Mom! Mom!" so she doesn't have to be atrociously dubbed by an adult)

Dario Argento's Horror Infernale scared me so much, I never watched a horror movie at the cinema again. *shudder*

That's Inferno, I think, yes? I've been creeped out by some Argento films (Demons and Suspiria) but this one didn't really get to me, for whatever reason. Except the underwater scene. Eeeesh.)

Not sure. It's the one about the three mothers: mater lacrimarum, mater tenebrarum, etc.... Scared me witless. :)

Yep, that's it! Or rather, it's the middle one of the trilogy, about tenebrarum. Suspiria is the first, and Mother of Tears is the last.

Hey! Gingers have souls! Not our own or anything, but we totally have souls.

I have a rather large collection of them, in fact! The no souls thing is a filthy, filthy lie that shesakicker likes to tell.
