Tragic Ceremony

I've been watching this in bits and pieces over the last few nights while trying to get my son to fall asleep. It's a slightly silly movie about a cursed pearl necklace and a bunch of hippies and a black mass gone wrong -- very much a cash-in on the Sharon Tate media frenzy. The candle budget was very high for this movie! I seem to have only done screen grabs of Camille Keaton (Buster Keaton's granddaughter) if that tells you anything about the film. Great theme song that sounds (as my wife noticed -- bless her) like an Italian Scott Walker.


  1. I'm glad to know I'm not the only one for whom sleepless nights and odd films are linked. One our first son was young he would only sleep while I held him. I accompanied this with my first viewings of the Owl Service, Children of the Stones and The Changes and I'm sure the lack of sleep added to those programmes appeal.

    1. yeah this might be part of the hauntology effect -- the sleepless hallucinatory distracted watching of tv while holding a young one...

  2. It looks pretty amazing. I think I have to check this one out.
