Midnight Confessions #01: Not your everyday pervert – Night Caller (1976)

    I had to interrupt and stop this conversation
    Your voice across the line gives me a strange sensation
    I’d like to talk when I can show you my affection

    (The Nerves – Hanging on the Telephone)

Shapes of an alternate reality – Il gatto a nove code (1971)

    The dreams I dream only the lonely dream
    Of lips as warm as May
    That hopeless scheme only the lonely scheme
    That soon somewhere you’ll find the one that used to care

    (Frank Sinatra – Only the Lonely)

Dekonstruktion eines deutschen Helden – Joachim Fuchsberger in “Der Teppich des Grauens”

    And he grabs me, he has me by my heart

    (Off to the Races – Lana Del Rey)


Auf Schicksalspfaden im Wilden Westen – All’ombra di una colt (1965)

    The animal dies with fear in his eyes
    With a gun
    Don’t touch him, don’t touch him
    Stay away from him, he’s got a gun

    (Lou Reed – The Gun)


Drácula contra Frankenstein (1972) or: Deconstructing horror with Jess Franco

    As you look through my window
    Deep into my room
    At the tapestries all faded
    Their vague and distant glories
    Concealed in the gloom
    The icy fingers of forgotten passions
    Softly brushing my lips
    At the tips of my primitive soul

    (Black Sabbath – Born Again)


Liebestraum (1991)

Not really now any more. Is there, then, no now because the past has consumed the present, reduced it to a series of compulsive repetitions, and what seemed to be new, what seemed to be now, is only the playing out of some out-of-time pattern?”
(Mark Fisher, The Weird and the Eerie)
