Clifton Center

Directed by Nicolas Roeg, who also directed Walkabout and Man Who Fell to Earth, this film follows a married couple who travel to Venice following the recent accidental death of their daughter, when the husband accepts a commission to restore a church. They encounter two sinister sisters, one of whom claims to be clairvoyant and informs them that their daughter is trying to contact them and warn them of danger. The husband at first dismisses their claims, but starts to experience mysterious sightings himself.

"I think this is one of the creepiest movies of all time, and it's always a favorite at Wild and Woolly" says Wild and Woolly Video Owner and series curator Todd Brashear.

Don't Look Now

Don't Look Now is renowned for its atypical but innovative editing style, and its use of recurring motifs and themes. The film often employs flashbacks and flashforwards in keeping with the depiction of precognition, but some scenes are intercut or merged to alter the viewer's perception of what is really happening.

Originally causing controversy on its initial release due to an explicit and, for the time, very graphic sex scene between Christie and Sutherland, its reputation has grown considerably in the years since, and it is now acknowledged as a modern classic and an influential work in horror and British film.
