Don't Look Now (1973)

Director: Nicolas Roeg. Cast: Donald Sutherland, Julie Christie. 110 min. Rated R. UK/Italy. Horror.

A horror movie that is better described "strange". Or eerie. Sutherland and Christie are parents of a dead daughter, who search for the girl's spirit in the streets and waterways of Venice, through a blind medium. The distinguishing factor, is that the father unknowingly foresees the future - which creates a confusing combination of sequences where one cannot discern what is happening now, and what will happen then. Must have been an inspiration for David Lynch's story-telling style. Rare glimpses of red color create a striking contrast to the backgrounds. Many movies have occurred in Venice; this is the creepiest.
