Horror Story (1993) -- Superb Czech movie which is a homage to silent Cinema and includes a collective of weird and bloody stories. The film is based on the book of the same title (A Sanguinary Novel) by the very individual Czech painter, typographer, author and philosopher Josef Vachal, who squeezed adventure, love, horror and other parallel episodes into, what is called, decadent reading for maids. It takes you through the history of the cinema, from silent films, to the beginning of sound and up to the very present. He tries to put several stories into his novel.
The stories are delightfully weird and bloody. The use of colors in "Krvavy Roman" is particularly impressive for example we see red, green, brown, mauve and even black & white. The film looks like an outlandish fairy tale with nudity and occasional bursts of gore. The location sets are surreal and look like paintings. The piano / violin score is wonderfully melancholic. The gore is awesome and it all amounts to a unique viewing experience.
