Perhaps the boundary between fantasy and reality is fluid, blurred, relative, individual.And perhaps, in the inability or unwillingness to tell the difference, lies madness! The emotions we have when we watch a movie are real, of course. When I say fantasy is fantasy, real life is real life I'm talking about something less relative.Jac asked me to clarify what Aristotelian Epic means to him.Aristotle defined DRAMA as a story with one central plot, such as a play, and an EPIC as a multi plot story, like The Odyssey.So, when a film is made, like , these are films about real torture and death and these subjects are fantasies for some people and they are not real.These films enable us to experience those emotions of fear, horror, terror, pity, for real, yes, but they are just that, stories to be enjoyed one way or another.
The subject matter, the way it is presented, the realistic, quasi real, portrayal of the tortures, the nudity, the blood... But none of that was an issue when Jac decided to alter the editing of the film.The new version is coming out for the release of the movie, next week, and it's going to be in blue ray. Margot: Ooh, yeah, vampires..of my favorite themes. They are not killed by the sun, just weakened, for instance and they have their strengths and their weakness...I'm glad you folks are getting into the horror genre, but putting a different spin on the vampyr legends. that makes our female vampires very resistant to torture.I uttered those words in response to comments concerning the "spanking" comments Amy posted some short time ago. She is 'The Duchess of Malfi' and is strangled slowly and brutally on stage. Hesketh has graphically described her fear and distress during the filming of the roasting scene in Maleficarum.But the issue is here and I must say a few things you all might find interesting... The impact on the audience is palpable, apparently. Also the real pain of the whipping scene in Dead but Dreaming. Hesketh's account of the impact on her of the creation of these illusions of torture will have a very real impact on the legions of Ms. Note also the comments of someone present at the filming of the BATS scene in Maleficarum on the Pachamama Film website just last night, in their new edited version, and they are really impactful.Is the reaction to her feigned, fantasy death unreal? Here we have real distress for the actor during the course of creating a fantasy about vampires(! When the lash hits the skin in those scenes, I feel it.
