Creepy Clips

By Jeffrey M. Anderson

Elite's DVD collects three 45-minute documentaries on horror films, focusing on "The Beasts," "The Machines" and "The Dead." I love clips shows, but I was surprised to find quite a bit more than the usual collection of AFI-approved snippets. Produced in France, the documentaries are far more adventurous and obscure, and include bits from Tim Burton's entire oeuvre, Truffaut's The Wild Child, Bela Tarr's Werckmeister Harmonies, as well as choice clips from the silent era. Refreshingly, there are no talking heads: just a sporadic narrator. Gerald Cailliat, Thomas Briat and Pierre-Henry Salfati directed.
