The House with Laughing Windows (REVIEW)

A young artist travels to a remote Italian village to restore a painting in a small out-of-the-way church. As soon as he begins his work he receives threatening phone calls warning him against restoring the painting, and a friend who had some information about the original artist, is murdered by being pushed out of a window. Later on the artist meets a young teacher and they begin to have a romantic affair while he works on the painting, as the inhabitants of the village begin to make their plans for him known.

The Haunting of Helena (REVIEW)

The Haunting of Helena

Christian Bisceglia and Ascanio Malgarini, the directors of “The Haunting of Helena,” definitely graduated from the Guillermo Del Toro school of horror. All of Del Toro’s filmmaking elements are here – a European setting and images that bring up a fascist past, a ghostly child lurking, tons of ominous music and shots of old statues in the rain. Unfortunately, "The Haunting of Helena” never seems to put it all together into one cohesive movie. There are some cool scenes and a few very effective images here, but in the end you don’t feel like you’ve seen a complete film.
