I was just thinking to myself wether Waxworks would be useable as it is an attraction, then i thought maybe you could use it as a new top ten.

Then was thinking about other stuff that could be used for a top ten if you are stuck and came up with these.

Waxworks and sculpture - Waxworks, mystery of the wax museum, Blind beast etc, carry on screaming (mannequins).

Art - Artist biopics and fictional artists in film, ie Loving Vincent, Lust for life, Love is the Devil, The Hand (comic artist).

Cinema related scenes - Demons, Matinee, Popcorn, Hugo, Gremlins.

Musicians - A blade in the dark, Deep Red, Streets of fire, Crossroads.

Film making and photography - The last movie, Ed Wood, Shadow of the vampire, Man bites dog, Blow up.

Dance - The Red shoes, Black Swan, Suspiria, Flashdance, Showgirls.

Just a few suggestions, feel free to use any (or not).

Also how about films with minimal casts and locations - Rope, Wait until dark, Buried, Look back in anger.

just a few suggestions n that.

Thanks to all who contributed a list of their favourite circus, funfair, carnival and theme park films. They were interesting and varied.

The topic for this week is all which was suggested by my namesake last week and can include feature films about fictional bands or musicians and documentaries about real musical acts.

FILMS ABOUT MUSICIANS

I just realised that Argento's Opera could be classed as a film about a musician.
