Great Scenes – THE CHURCH

We’re back!! After a brief hiatus in which my wife and I picked up and moved from NYC to LA – our freaked out cat in tow – we’re finally settled in and ready to begin anew! But enough about boring ol’ me – let’s get back to celebrating the thing we love here at Isle of Cinema - movies! Today we feature for your delight a great scene from Michele Soavi‘s La Chiesa (The Church), a movie which I rushed out to buy back in days of VHS after seeing the masterpiece that was Dellamorte, Dellamore (Cemetery Man). And while ultimately The Church cannot compare to the glory of Dellamorte, Dellamore (part of the “zombie new wave” which includes Peter Jackson’s Dead Alive and Sam Raimi‘s Evil Dead II), it nevertheless has some incredible moments and fantastic camerawork which make it worthy of your time. Check out this ambitious opening in which Soavi – a protege of Dario Argento – exhibits his usual genre-blending and kinetic “flying eye.” A nice way of getting us back on track and rewarding you for bearing with us! Check back for more transmissions from the Isle of Cinema – now broadcasting from Hollywoodland
