There's a new post on the blog with some beautiful film noir posters that would look perfect in any movie fan's home! Up on the wall here I have THE BIG SLEEP (1946), one of the noirs I've seen for #Noirvember this month 😊 . Any film noir fans out there? 🗨️ My all time favourite would have to be Hitchcock's NOTORIOUS (1946) with Ingrid Bergman and Cary Grant bc it's basically my all time favourite movie 🗝️ . Link to the blog is in my bio if you fancy some noir decor 👉🏻 @returning.videotapes
🌙 Such whispered tales, such old temptations and hauntings, and devilish terrors. — Gothic Tales, Elizabeth Gaskell . From all the short stories in this book the one I'm most looking forward to is LOIS THE WITCH, about the Salem trials and from which I believe the quote is from. Lucky for me, it looks like it's a long one! 😊 . Have you read this book or any from Gaskell? I'm not sure what to expect. And if you know any good fiction with witchcraft, let me know! 🗨️
Don't listen to anyone who doesn't know how to dream — Liza Minnelli ♥️
Hill House, not sane, stood by itself against its hills, holding darkness within; it had stood so for eighty years and might stand for eighty more. . Within, walls continued upright, bricks met neatly, floors were firm, and doors were sensibly shut; silence lay steadily against the wood and stone of Hill House, and whatever walked there, walked alone. — Shirley Jackson, The Haunting of Hill House . I haven't read this haunted house classic yet, but with such a chilling opening I sure am dying to. 👻 Last month I did see one of its adaptations, THE HAUNTING (1963), and it was a pretty amazing horror film, 100% recommend! 👍🏻
Every time a book changes hands, every time someone runs his eyes down its pages, its spirit grows and strengthens. — La Sombra del Viento, by Carlos Ruiz Zafón . The books in today's post are mysteries and gloomy romance novels perfect for these rainy nights 🌧️ . La Sombra del Viento (or The Shadow of the Wind) is one of them, have you read it? It's one of three books I'd love to see adapted to movies. On second thought, they may be too precious for that 😂 . A link to the post is in my bio, as usual 👉🏻 returningvideotapes.com
