Over on my Substack: riffing on one of my favorite subjects: the Folie à deux, in film, plays, books, and of course in life. Culminating in a discussion of Joël Séria’s controversial 1971 film Mais ne Nous Délivrez Pas du Mal (Don’t Deliver Us From Evil), never released in the States, inspired by the Parker-Hulme murders (beating Heavenly Creatures by 25 years). A haunting eerie film, marketed as horror/exploitation, but … it escapes those confines. It’s brilliant.
