“It is obviously Vincent Price’s vehicle, and he gives us one of his most focused and balanced performances. Scripts and directors so often pulled upon Price’s comedic aplomb… or his grave capacity for projecting utter malevolence. In this, he mixes both. He is utterly ruthless and toxically charismatic; thus, it’s easy to see why he has followers and why they humiliate themselves for his delight.”

Yes, I am finally a match for Amy. The other morning I woke up next to her, and I studied the back of her skull. I tried to read her thoughts. For once I didn’t feel like I was staring into the sun. I’m rising to my wife’s level of madness. Because I can feel her changing me again: I was a callow boy, and then a man, good and bad. Now at last I’m the hero. I am the one to root for in the never-ending war story of our marriage. It’s a story I can live with. Hell, at this point, I can’t imagine my story without Amy. She is my forever antagonist.

We are one long frightening climax.

The story has a lot in common with fairy tales: there’s a family living in a wood cabin in a forest and rites of passage unfold in the story. The child has to go into the world and experiences and meets evil which has to be overcome […] All fairy tales to me make emotional sense and that was the important thing to find in Hanna. Fairy tales to me are never happy, sweet stories. They’re moral stories about overcoming the dark side and the bad. I find it ironic that happy endings now are called fairytale endings because there’s nothing happy about most fairytale endings. - Joe Wright (x)

"Advice From a Caterpillar" by Krista Huot

"Tink was not all bad; or, rather, she was all bad just now, but, on the other hand, sometimes she was all good. Fairies have to be one thing or the other, because being so small they unfortunately have room for one feeling at a time. They are, however, allowed to change, only it must be a complete change."  - J.M. Barrie, Peter and Wendy (via queenofautumn01)
