I'm 99% sure I'm wrong but who cares?

Frankenstein?

foobella said...

I have no idea, but that last is giving me the creeps, so I say something about a hairy Frankenstein character.

JA said...

Not Frankenstein...

NATHANIEL R said...

yeah. i'm absolutely clueless. but now that i'm reading Frankenstein (good guess James T) that does look like hair rather than like grass with ash or snow over it.

whenever someone takes over this series for me -- thanks JA -- i realize how maddening and hard it is and I want to give y'all Star Wars or something easy ;)

NATHANIEL R said...

Okay than... what about Gothic ? or Mary Shelley's Frankenstein... is it any Frankenstein related movie ?

JA said...

Nope not Gothic. It's not related to Mary Shelley or her book at all.

Ryan T. said...

I'll take a stab in the dark, especially since I've never seen the film series, and say Saw.

JA said...

Heh I wish I'd had the balls to make the TFE crowd try and guess a Saw film here, but no, not Saw or any of its eleventeen sequels.

It is sort of an obscure movie but I feel like anyone that's seen this movie will get this pretty easily.

Taxidermia. Good stuff.

JA said...

GJB for the win.

This movie haunts my brain.

NATHANIEL R said...

was that that Hungarian Oscar submission from a couple years back?

Chris Na Taraja said...

AMEDEUS? if I'm not mistaken it starts with a candle (the guy running through the house, and ends with his grave.

Volvagia said...

My guess would have been Bug.

JA said...

Yes Nat, Hungary submitted it for the Oscars in 2007.

It really is an astonishing film, if you can get past some of the disturbing imagery.

Boyd said...

Yay! I recognised one! I love, love, love that movie! Thanks JA! (Now I'll stop using exclamation marks.)

Bilex said...

It's Taxidermia!

Glenn said...

Woohoo! Taxidermia was disgusting, but riveting.
