I am looking for films that follow the pattern of Robert
HANDS (1924) or Maurice Renard's original novel: Somebody is influenced
organs he got from a transplantation, e.g. haunted by the evil spirit
Of course, there are the "official" remakes: Mad Love, The Hands of
(starring Christopher Lee), Hands of a Stranger (1962).
Then there is Body Parts (1991, Jeff Fahey) and Blink (Madeline Stowe).
heard of some Italian horror films and a Tales From the Crypt-episode,
well as an episode from Carpenter/Hooper's Body Bags, but could not get
of information on this.
I am trying to work out the influence Wiene's film had on the
of the thriller/horror genre as well as the implications/themes of
particular story: why is it so popular, what basic anxieties does it
Any suggestions are welcome.
I recently watched a really rotten film called LIFEBREATH (P.J. Posner,
1997) featuring the one and only mr sad-eyes Luke Perry. Looked like a
TV movie, though. Horrid romantic story about mr. Perry looking for
girl to kill, so that his dying wife can have a lung transplant. He
finds a victim (a cold hearted real-estate broker), kills her and gets
a cold-hearted wife. Truly awful.
