Happy Thanksgiving! Today is the day we gather with friends and family, and really focus on how thankful we are to have survived another year. It’s definitely not about the food. Not at all. I found some interesting things out this month! Did you know, the United States isn’t the only country to celebrate Thanksgiving? I’m going to go over traditions in four other countries, and list out some of our own as well!

Amsterdamned (1988): Writer/Director #dickmaas brings his own twist to the Giallo/slasher sub-genres with 1988’s Amsterdamned. The follows a psychotic scuba diver who is using the canals in Amsterdam to move silently about the city and murder its citizens. Hot on his trail is one of the city’s best detectives. Will he catch this maniac in time? How many will die by his hands? These questions—if you’re familiar with the genre—won’t be all that hard to answer. Maas has a formula and—mostly—sticks to it. The focuses on the police manhunt but doesn’t mind taking detours into soapboxing about the state of Amsterdam and the damage that has been done to the canalsor into extended chase sequences through the city (one of which is a real showstopper). The film showcases its horror elements, loud and proud, but never quite hits the body counts of most slasher nor the sexualization of mostgialli. Instead, Maas is more than happy to spin his own take on these sub-genres and the tropes that come along with them. Like one of his previous films, The Lift, this movie is well-made with a nice sense of scope and scale. Maas, again, composed the Carpenter-esque music and it works quite nicely in the context of the film. The film’s credit sequence follows the killer as they slowly move through the canals carefully choosing their victim. It’s an effectively creepy opening that sets the scene well and feels like a fun twist on the killer’s POV camera shot so ubiquitous to the slasher genre. @huubstapel puts forth another strong performance here as the determined yet harried detective. He’s likeable but also tough and Maas has no qualms about keeping him one step behind the killer. The other actors all perform well (I really liked Stapel’s two buddies) and, while no one steals the movie, no one detracted from it in any major ways. Amsterdamned is a fun twist on something familiar and another Dick Maas film that has closer endeared him to me. If you like slashers or gialli, you’d do well to take the plunge on this one! #movie_mattinee @oscarwatchpod @samenightmovie

💃 ICELAND (girl and boy) The Peysuföt - Women's woolen clothes commonly worn in the 18-19th century. Typically, it consisted of a twill skirt and a jacket of fine knitted wool, with a black tail cap. It's believed that this costume was invented when women, desiring simpler working clothes, started using male articles of clothing. Þjóðbúningur karla - Men's traditional costume of woolen breeches or trousers, a double buttoned vest and a double buttoned jacket called "treyja". On the head is a tail cap. It is identical to the clothing Icelandic men commonly wore from the 17th until the 19th century. Swipe photo ⏪ to the left.
