i jz hope u dont associate horror movies with cheap jumpscares coz the depth of darkness found under blistering sunlight is all-consuming...i do not recommend this connoisseur of filth to everyone...only to those who can fathom Ari Aster being a genius extraordinaire to his sophomore attempt (though it cant beat Hereditary), that i consider not fitting in to the formulaic scary definition u expected...it's a relationship break-up film...macabre, harrowing, depressing & disturbing...really progresses in reverse with a very nightmarish crescendo !!! the cathartic process from a breakup is sick while intertwining with Swedish/Scandivian/Viking folklore...what made it to my cut is how it started very depressing & ended w/a happy ending to boot...the slow-paced in-betweens are the most harrowing w/repulsive rituals from creepy murals foreshadowing all their demise... apart from the heavy references, the spotless execution to The Shining, Wicker Park, The Apostle, Thor & Vikings are spot on...now, here we are perversed by a cold, callous, not-willing-to-"sacrifice" boyfriend against his grieving girlfriend battling with anxiety attack over the tragic loss of her family...witnessing the bluddy rituals, an unclouded inbred, she starts to purge her depression after proving the infedility from her boyfriend who freeballs & only served looks...consequently, she gets to be the Maypole midsummer puppet, welcomed to a new "family" & alas, a beautiful awakening & emotional breakthrough in full regalia !!! for the guys in the film, the Americans per se, is a folk horror movie, but for Dani it's more of a fairytale & we are just aligned with Dani !!! #Midsommar#JackReynor#FlorencePugh#AriAster#horror#horrorhead#thriller#psychologicalthriller#mystery#sweden#norsemythology#vikings#scandinavia#maypole#catharsis#mentalhealth#anxietyattack#harrowing#disturbing#unsettling#dark#letthefestivitiesbegin 🇸🇪
Part 2. Communication. Not always about bon bons and Ellen. Simply giving a situation and person(s) proper dignity can go a real long way. I think that really is the culprit in much of interpersonal disputes these past few years. "Haterz" are not so much winning as they are multiplying.... occurring in people who are not really that way. People are turning over to that emotion who are not really bad folk. #thefear#unsettling#concernsme The Juan Perspective?

I went down to the crossroad fell down on my knees asked the lord above " Have Mercy now save poor Bob if you please"- Robert Johnson •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••
A Domino Effect:
Robert Johnson grew up in Hazlehurst, Mississippi where he relocated a few times before finally settling down. On February 1929 Robert Johnson signed his name on the certificate of marriage to sixteen-year-old Virginia Travis. Virginia Died shortly after, unfortunately in child birth. Virginia's Family blamed Robert for her death because Robert constantly made the decision to sing profane songs. Due to the heavy influence of the religious Establishment , Many people believed during that time one forfeited their souls to eternal damnation by playing the "devils music" .Everyone but Robert viewed it as tampering with forces unknown. Superstition made Robert to be an outcast, not by choice but by his passions. Robert had hit rock bottom, and started to adopt the resolve to abandon the "attempted" settled life of a husband and farmer to become a full-time blues Musician. This act of rebellion had been the beginning of Robert's greatness & his eventual destruction. (📸:Black Presence -Kerry James) Marshall

There has been quite a little bit of buzz about this little film recently online. Luckily I found this on Prime and decided to watch and and boy was this probably the scariest film I've ever seen. There were so many moments that held me with chills and goosebumps consuming my body. As the credits began to role I didn't want to move or get out of my chair. One problem I did have with this hidden gen was that it toon quite a while for me to become invested. But I believe that will change of future rewatches.

Felt the need to put a warning here in case anyone didn't like creepy Jack in the boxes. It's probably not as bad as all that, but I personally was unnerved by it. Sadly couldnt get a good picture for a while and that's part of why it's so late ☹️ That and I was considering drawing something else in its place for a bit 😅 don't laugh at me if it's not so bad as to warrant a warning.

Greetings! I just finished today's prompt for #inktober2019 "misfit". I honestly didn't even know the word existed and never used it either. I really didn't know what to do yet again so I just scrambles for an idea. This pice is more a nod to Visandar and his crows to wich he shares a limited telepathic connection. Thankfully the pice didn' t take long and so I was able to finish it under an hour.
Anyway Thank you very much for checking this out, have the happiest of days and may the forces of decay spare you further. :D

Magick in the head? :
A shrunken head is a severed and specially prepared human head that is used for trophy, ritual, or trade purposes.
History of the severed head:
Headhunting has occurred in many regions of the world, but the practice of headshrinking has only been documented in the northwestern region of the Amazon rainforest. The only tribes known to have shrunken human heads are of the Jivaroan tribes. These include the Shuar, Achuar, Huambisa and Aguaruna tribes, found in Ecuador and Peru. The Shuar call a shrunken head a tsantsa, also transliterated tzantza. Many tribe leaders would show off their heads to scare enemies.
The process of creating a shrunken head begins with removing the skull from the neck. An incision is made on the back of the ear and all the skin and flesh is removed from the cranium. Red seeds are placed underneath the nostrils and the lips are sewn shut. The mouth is held together with three palm pins. Fat from the flesh of the head is removed. Then a wooden ball is placed under the flesh in order to keep the form. The flesh is then boiled in water that has been saturated with a number of herbs containing tannins. The head is then dried with hot rocks and sand, while molding it to retain its human features. The skin is then rubbed down with charcoal ash. Decorative beads may be added to the head. In the head shrinking tradition, it is believed that coating the skin in ash keeps the muisak, or avenging soul, from seeping out.
Shrunken heads are known for their mandibular prognathism, facial distortion and shrinkage of the lateral sides of the forehead; these are artifacts of the shrinking process.
Among the Shuar and Achuar, the reduction of the heads was followed by a series if feasts centered on important rituals to maintain the spirits of the heads. (continue below to find what celebrity fell victim to the process.🔮)
On Halloween, the people would tell ghost stories and play pranks. They celebrated the harvest, tell each other’s fortunes, dance and sing.
