Mrs. Barbara Steele is STILL one dangerously seductive and deadly momma!
As soon as it got listed in the official program of the 30th annual Belgian Festival of Fantastic Films, I’ve been eagerly anticipating to see “The Butterfly Room”. For obvious reasons, I presume, namely the return of horror diva Barbara Steele – the legendary beautiful and hypnotizing lead actress of such Gothic horror milestones as “Black Sunday”, “The Pit and the Pendulum” and “Castle of Blood”. The casting of Steele is the undeniable highlight, of course, but writer/director Jonathan Zarantonello’s whole incentive of making a thriller solely revolving on female protagonists is enormously respectable and, in fact, quite innovative as the horror genre still somewhat remains a masculine world where women are often degraded to inferior roles. Apart from Barbara Steele, Zarantonello managed to gather the dignified horror ladies Erica Leerhsen (“The Texas Chainsaw Massacre”), Camille Keaton (“I Spit on your Grave”), Adrienne King (“Friday the 13th), PJ Soles (“Halloween”) and Heather Langenkamp (“Nightmare on Elm Street”). To defend the honor of the male sex, there’s also Ray Wise (“Twin Peaks”). I easily daresay this is the most remarkable and jaw-dropping ensemble horror cast since many years!
The plot itself also contains great thriller potential and a worthy amount of isolated moments of greatness, but sadly I have to admit that the wholesome is too often tedious and never appears to find a stable pacing. Steele is splendid as the aging but nevertheless still very stylish and fashionable Ann, a lonely woman who reverts to her hobby of collecting butterflies and exhibiting them in a sober room where only she’s allowed to enter. Ann is always eager to babysit her neighbor’s young daughter and she also takes obsessive custody of a girl she met at the shopping mall, because her motherly instincts remain unanswered. But Ann’s caring personality also has a grim dark side that gradually comes to the surface. “The Butterfly Room” is 100% American produced, but the atmosphere feels totally European, more particularly reminiscent of those typically lurid Italian gialli and psychedelic dramas. The roots of director Zarantonello and the decades of Barbara Steele’s horror experience are clearly detectable. Despite the brooding atmosphere throughout, the vast majority of the film is regrettably tame, but luckily this gets compensated with a neatly unsettling and grisly denouement. Beautiful imagery and tasteful photography complete this worthwhile effort that particularly comes recommended to admirers of strong feminine horror ladies and nostalgia.
What a great, little surprise—
I’m thrilled that I just happened upon this brilliant gem of a horror/thriller! Scrolling through YouTube looking for what new horror films would be coming out this year, and I just happened upon this movie’s trailer. Being a very much hard core horror/thriller movie fan I was shocked that this movie’s title has never crossed my path until today!
Along with it being a very real piece of actual entertainment(which sadly these days is very hard to come by), it also had such an array of horror movie icons that made appearances throughout. Some of them being, Erica Leerhsen(The Texas Chainsaw Massacre), Heather Langenkamp(Nightmare on Elm Street), Adrienne King(Friday the 13th), Camille Keaton (I Spit on your Grave), PJ Soles(Halloween)…and I must quote one of the other reviewers opinion in my saying that I wholeheartedly agree that you just won’t find a better psychotic & violent portrayal by a women that, can you believe, is seventy-five years old, in my speaking of the great Barbara Steele.
Seriously wish that this little gem of a horror would have received more recognition, as it so deserved. I just wish I’d known of it long before now!
