Yeah, I DNF most horror films because, let’s face it, most horror films are crap…

But last night I watched a rather decent one written and directed by Irish/Welsh film maker Liam Gavin called A DARK SONG.

A determined young woman and a damaged occultist risk their lives and souls to perform a dangerous ritual that will grant them what they want.

It’s a beautifully shot, refreshing twist on an old trope — someone loses someone they love and turns to the occult for palliative effect.

I may have mentioned this before — I’m too lazy to check — but lately since most horror found on Netflix and elsewhere are crap, as previously mentioned, I’ve been getting my cinematic horror fix in short film doses from a fantastic youtube site called Alter.

Here, courtesy of Alter, is another creative twist on the grieving someone turns to the occult to relieve their grief trope that is extremely well-presented in only a matter of minutes.

Not bad, eh?

  1. Interesting. You don’t like horror movies? It’s my fave genre. But I don’t like stuff that’s visually grahpic. Idk it’s a contradicting genre

          1. Oh yeah, they’re out there; just gotta sift through a lot of garbage to get to them. The Witch is probably the best one I’ve seen in a long time. Berberian Sound Studio which I recently posted about is also very good. While I didn’t like Hereditary, I look forward to seeing Aster’s Midsommar…


          2. The witch freaked me out!! And that reminds me of the tusk! Traumatizing but I could not look away. From either of those
