    Random but enthusiastic seconding of Onibaba, it’s creepy as all hell, still shots of waving grass should be charming and relaxing not creepy (it reminds me of how David Lynch makes fans and table lamps scary).

    Regarding that pit — I’m surprised that no one mention the Defenders TV series plot. I mean, Ken and Robin’s ideas for using it are better and more interesting, but one does have to wonder if any of the TV writers knew of the Chicago phenomenon.

    I’m also reminded of a comment from a friend of mine; that underground construction work in Rome can only ever proceed at the speed of an archaeologist with a soft brush…
