Ingmar Bergman’s 1972 weeper Cries and Whispers is a gutsy choice for a Halloween screening, though all the elements are there: creepy sisters, an overdecorated castle, some unexpected blood. It’s very… European. It’s a hard one to watch, mostly because of the agonized screams of one sister (Harriet Andersson), who spends most of the movie on her deathbed. A heavily saturated red permeates every room (which looks awesome) and scene change (which hasn’t dated well) – it actually won the Oscar for Best Cinematography, even though the whole thing takes place in a single house.
