Note to selfIf I’m ever running away from someone that I might think is a killer and I climb up top to a window and proceed to go through it – I need to check below and observe is there is a massive amount of barb wire before jumping down.

Seems like common sense, but not quite the case for Sarah in 1977’s personal classic of mine, Suspiria.  There are a lot of things I love about this movie (the colors, the music, the blind guy) but I can’t help but laugh every time I watch Sarah plunge to her imminent ‘barb wire death’.  I think what makes it so comical is the fact that there is SO much of the barb wire on the ground when she jumps down.  Could she seriously not see any of it?  But whatever the case, it’s a scene that is more than worthy of being on this week’s Sunday Bloody Sunday:
