Join your faithful Grue Crew – Doc Rotten, Chad Hunt, Bill Mulligan, and Jeff Mohr – as they don their red raincoats in the rainy, English countryside and make a trip to Venice, Italy as depicted by Nicolas Roeg in his 1973 classic, Donâ€™t Look Now.

The Decades of Horror 1970s Grue Crew is in universal awe of director Nicolas Roegâ€™s work in this film. Bill professes his undying love for Julie Christieâ€™s mind and thinks Donâ€™t Look Now is so well done, it would make an ideal subject for a film school project. Itâ€™s the legendary sex scene that Chad first heard about, but he now appreciates the movie for the complete cinematic experience it delivers. Doc is a fan of Donald Sutherlandâ€™s work and his performance in Donâ€™t Look Now and reveals another set of leads that might have replaced Christie and Sutherland. Roegâ€™s penchant for depicting time as fluid rather than linear impressed Jeff as did all of the recurring motifs he uses in the film.
Donâ€™t Look Now receives an enthusiastic thumbs-up from all of the members of the Grue Crew! It is currently available to stream on SHUDDER and Jeff also highly recommends the Criterion Blu-ray edition.
