ABOUT - House of Psychotic Women
Imagine my surprise and delight when I first encountered Kier-La Janisse's "House of Psychotic Women," a book that seamlessly blends film analysis with memoir. It's a book that still feels radical in its methodology and vulnerability, even ten years after its first release.And when the climax arrives, it’s like a fragmented brain having a moment of clarity before turning inward fatally. Here is a quick description and cover image of book House of Psychotic Women: An Autobiographical Topography of Female Neurosis in Horror and Exploitation Films written by Kier-la Janisse which was published in 2012-1-1.
House of Psychotic Women: An Autobiographical Topograph…
Soon after his arrival, a serial killer begins slaughtering blonde, blue-eyed women and leaving their eyeballs in a bowl of water. It starts off focusing on a drifter, with a past, looking for work who gets picked up by a woman who hires him to help her and her sisters keep up their crumbling manor (and to provide romantic favors if you know what I mean). I Like Bats is presented in its original Polish language in 24-bit DTS-HD Mono with optional English subtitles.
I wrote a book about women and mental illness and this has resulted in a lot of women with mental illnesses wanting to talk to me. This one runs for nine minutes and covers Jane Arden's career, how Janisse came to know of the film, the film's depictions of psychiatry, her thoughts on the movie after seeing it for the first time going in blind, the stage play that Arden worked on that inspired the movie, how the movie is the only British film on record to have been directed by a woman in the seventies, the collaborative nature and energy in the movie, the use of LSD on set and what she's learned about the movie since including it in her book.

Sometimes I'd start watching at the halfway point but it wouldn't really matter because I was solely interested in the aesthetics. Both look terrific and may be the best-looking transfers of the bunch, although that can probably be attributed to the shape of the source materials. The disc also includes a commentary with Kamila Wielebska, Actor and Co-Editor of A Story Of Sin: Surrealism In Polish Cinema.Anyone who likes a solid post-watch deep dive will find this box set invaluable, especially when paired with the book. She was a producer on David Gregory’s Tales of the Uncanny (2020) and wrote, directed and produced the award-winning documentary Woodlands Dark and Days Bewitched: A History of Folk Horror (2021) for Severin Films, where she is a producer and editor of supplemental features.
