The House of Domovoy (2015)

The Russian myth of Domovoy is that he’s a household spirit that appears under various names and in various places in your house. Domovoy was also the magician of Ivan the Terrible. In America, we’d call it a poltergeist. The movie is about a Russian writer who went to the ruins of Domovoy’s house and drew evil upon himself. This is a strange art house nightmare. You might think it’s a little too far out there. I loved it.

Warning language and moderate violence and freaky as all get out.

BloodTide (48)

Blood Tide (1984)

James Earl Jones plays a drunken archaeologist who is given to recite Shakespeare. Then there’s some banter between American tourists. Since the film is set in Greece, Jose Ferrer shows up to prove he can’t speak Greek. The natives, terrified by the sudden death of some of their women folk, do what all Greek natives do in movies – drink, sing, eat, and dance!
