Nice snowy weekend here. Catching up on a few scary movies, including Đorđe Kadijević's Leptirica ("The Moth"), which might appeal to Valerieholics. Leptirica is a Serbian made-for-TV horror movie from 1973, loosely adapted from Milovan Glišić's 1880 novel. One of those magical soft focus vampire films with a sylvan setting and flaxen-haired beauty, all resting on an ancient bed of Slavic folklore. Kinda silly film, but there's a great plot twist involving a butterfly and some memorable Valerie-esque details; I love the owls who "speak" to the main character through the trees... Watch here.
