This stunning installation of 888,246 red ceramic poppies was created by ceramic artist Paul Cummins and stage designer Tom Piper in commemoration of the centennial of Britain’s involvement in World War I. Entitled Blood Swept Lands and Seas of Red, each flower represents a British or Colonial military fatality.

This staggering installation is a work in progress, with the ceramic pippies being planted by volunteers in the dry moat that surrounds the Tower of London. The planting process began a few weeks ago and will continue throughout the summer until a final flower is symbolically planted on November 11, 2014.

Visit the Historic Royal Palaces website to learn more about this moving project. You can also follow the progress of the volunteer planters by following the #TowerPoppies on Twitter.

Beetlejuice (1988)

Beetlejuice (1988)

myyearinmovies:

#227 - American Mary
And 2013 brings us to the conclusion of the My Years in Horror project, and I can’t think of a better movie to end on than American Mary.
You could watch this movie multiple times and still wonder, “what is this?” And I don’t mean that in a David Lynchian “HUH?!” kind of way, American Mary is just so unlike your typical horror film. Clearly there are influences from Frankenstein to May, but Mary is still very much its own thing.
We’ve seen monster movies, we’ve seen someone slowly go insane, but thanks to a dazzling performance from the criminally-underrated Katharine Isabelle, this is something different. Any movie can make the monsters, slay the monsters, or have its protagonist become the monster, but Isabelle’s work takes an often uncomplicated genre and turns it into something much, much deeper.
Lumping it in with other “revenge” films does Mary a disservice as well, as directors Jen & Sylvia Soska take it far beyond that simple trope and deliver the best horror movie of last year. Infinitely re-watchable and as the poster says, “a modern horror masterpiece.”
