Machen in the modern world--excellent!
10 October 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

What an achievement! Parsons tries an experiment as radical as that in "The Inmost Light" or "The Great God Pan"--he tries to summon up into our own day the elder, eldritch enchantment of Machen's "The White People." What if the evil and magic that lay dormant since that tale were to surface again in our day, in such different circumstances? Parsons seems to realize that if the Machen magic was ever genuine, then it has to be capable of transplant into our profane and grubby age, too. Was it all merely a Golden Dawn affectation? No indeed. Machen allows characters to contact a timeless world of (anti-)Sacred time and to unleash it in their own. Thus it must be accessible from any point in history. And that experiment succeeds: Machen's magic survives in a world he never made.

But "Wish Baby" is far from being some windy essay like this one. It is a powerful cautionary tale and a traditionally spooky, absolutely intimidating and frightening tale told with prime senstivity towards the truly weird! This film has got to be accorded wider distribution! Robert M. Price
