Lovespell

Artistic intervention by Cetusss

The world has been a cactus for the past 50 years so it's high time to get drunk on love's magic spells. Welcome to Equatorial Switzerland's movie theaters where you'll at least be able to sit down! Rather than kissing under the mistletoe, Black Movie is proud to invite you to do it under a cactus. Ouch!

“Lovespell” is also the name of an island in the Second Life computer game. The house on BM's poster is the one you can see on Second Life's pixels pile. Are there cacti hiding inside? Ouch! As well as the famous pool, the pad throbs to the beat of home cinema of which you'll make unlimited use. Ow, Ow, Ow!

Like a short-lived magic potion, as your dosed-up-with-emotion body heat cools down post-Festival, the house will also slowly evaporate, though not without a few stinging pricks here and there. Ow, Ow, Ow! Ouch! Ow
