Coming from Severin:

Quote:
Thanks to films like Ben Wheatley’s Kill List, Corin Hardy’s The Hallow, Robert Eggers’ The Witch, and Ari Aster’s just-released Midsommar, folk-horror tales have definitely enjoyed a revival in recent years. Now a new documentary will look at the history of this genre, in which the pastoral is routinely entwined with the painful.

It was announced today that horror expert and author Kier-La Janisse (House of Psychotic Women) is currently in the midst of shooting her directorial debut, the documentary Woodlands Dark and Days Bewitched: A History of Folk Horror. Produced by Severin Films, Janisse’s movie will track the genre’s story from its initial heyday, which saw the release of Michael Reeves’ The Witchfinder General (1968), Piers Haggard’s Blood on Satan’s Claw (1971), and Robin Hardy’s The Wicker Man (1973), through its proliferation on British television in the 1970s and its culturally specific manifestations in American, Asian, African, and Eastern European horror, to the genre’s revival over the last decade. The film will feature interviews with Eggers, Prevenge director and star Alice Lowe, and Witchfinder General actor Ian Ogilvy, among others.

“Folk horror has exploded over the last decade with a multidisciplinary reach that few other subgenres of horror enjoy, its manifestations on film, in visual arts and music proliferating at a surprising rate,” Janisse said in a statement. “Moreover, the genre has inspired a rabid online fanbase whose favorite pastime seems to be endlessly debating exactly what folk horror is.”

The Wax Mask

Synopsis: In the mid-'90s, Dario Argento approached a physically and professionally ailing Lucio Fulci to direct one final production, an over-the-top shocker about grisly murders at a Paris wax museum. But when Fulci passed away only weeks before filming began, Argento turned to Sergio Stivaletti – the FX genius on PHENOMENA, OPERA, DEMONS and CEMETARY MAN – to make his feature-directing debut. Original Grand Guignol director/performer Robert Hossein (RIFFIFI) and Aldo Massasso (CONTRABAND) star in what DVD Drive-In hails as "old-timey luridness married to state-of-the-art gore" – from a screenplay co-written by Fulci with cinematography by Sergio Salvati (ZOMBIE, THE BEYOND) – now featuring a 4k scan from the original negative supervised by Stivaletti and packed with Special Features that include rare behind-the-scenes footage, all-new interviews and more.

Wax Mask is a prime example of how far the italian cinema had fallen, in the 90:s. One of the most disappointing films ever made...
It's just a complete mess.
The worst thing, is the over use of horrible CGI, that looked terrible even in 1997. Though, the CGI in Argento's productions, always sucked balls, even as late as his terrible version of Dracula.

It's too bad Fulci died before he could direct the movie, even though it still would have been mediocre, like most of his later films. But even a bad Fulci movie, is far more entertaining than this piece of shit.

Still, it looks like a solid release, for the fans of the film.
