Rupaul’s Drag Race season 12 contestant Crystal Methyd brought Freddy Krueger glam to the Drag Race franchise, which I love! She also brought the devil to the runway.
From Discarded Images
Allatou is a medieval demon of illicit acts. She is the wife of another medieval demon, Nergal. She tempts you to abandon your principles and moral judgment, and fall into perdition. Every moral lesson will be forgotten if you listen to her poisonous whispers.
I recently re-watched Ti West’s The House of the Devil. I remembered liking how spooky it was, but I forgot how much I liked the storyline. The narrative both pops and lulls as it unfolds toward a dark ending about free will and Satanism. The gore is bloody and satisfying. The heroine is strong and resourceful. The villains seem distant but are many and close by. So spooky!
Admittedly, I might be biased because Rosemary’s Baby is one of my favourite movies and The House of the Devil pays an intriguing homage to the Unholy Trinity. Its ending is very different than its predecessor’s, however. It is unresolved yet satisfying, which I liked. I am very much a Ti West fan!
