So I just watched a movie. It’s….a weird movie. Yet, I enjoyed it. So I decided to unleash my excitement on my friend Corey. This will give you a pretty solid idea what you’re in for. Expect the full review tomorrow!

There’s spoilers in them thar hills! Buyer Beware!

SPOILERS!

ccriswell: I just watched this http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0437217/
and
it’s weird
it’s a pretty bad movie, plot makes fuck all sense for the most part
yet
I liked it

Corey: hehe

ccriswell: so the chick is in teh beginning of teh film. she’s pregnant, gets her head wacked off by somebody with an axe. we don’t know who it was

Corey: IT WAS THE GIMP IT WAS THE GIMP

ccriswell: 10 years later some other dude. Fed up with his job, underpaid. he’s with a client. Client says ‘you deserve better, go meet with this head hunter chick’ she’ll gets you a new job
he does, she gets him a new job on the grave yard shift. ghosts show up, etc. gotta find the head gotta find the head

Corey: i’m sensing a trend. chick gets head whacked off. head hunter. grave yard shift.

ccriswell: he finds out the guy who referred him to her was the axeman, he’s feeding her body’s to kill more or less. he’s hidden her head, she’s trying to get these people that get sent to her to hide find her head
no clue why she’s getting them corporate jobs in the insurance industry
except for the guy sent her his insurance agent
so I guess convenient for him? i dunno. but the only connection is ‘headhunter’ as in corporate recruiter and she’s looking for her head

Corey: SUSPENSION OF DISBELIEF

ccriswell: then you get to the end and WHAM outta fuckin’ no where SHES EVIIIIIIIIIIIIIL
She’s a witch! Don’t find her head, she’s gonna give birth to the devil’s kid!
uh….wha?

Corey: Wow, that’s kinda outta the blue.

ccriswell: EVIL EVIL EVIL! In comes zombie lady starts giving birth to devil baby
:O
WTF!?!?!

Corey: haha

ccriswell: no lead up to her being evil whatsoever
except for she’s got a tattoo that matches the keyring the guy gave the insurance dude, and some professor told him it’s some persian evil fertility thing

Corey: Oh, well that explains it.

ccriswell: yes
and that was a….2 minute scene at the halfway mark

Corey: It’s obvious. How could you NOT pick up on the clues?

ccriswell: BUT SHE’S EVIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIL!

Corey: DUDE.
it’s your JOB..
err.. HOBBY
to pay attention to these things

Angela Bettis and Lucky McKee together again? Count me in. (With bonuse Kristen Bell Action! Schwing!)

The Messengers
It’s pretty obvious I have questionable taste. This one seems like a good fit.

Rob Zombie’s Halloween
Mr. Zombie continues to dump the casting news on his web page. Tons of B-Movie stalwarts in there, however I’ve never heard of the new Laurie Strode myself. I’ll still hold the faith however.

The Gathering

An American drifter in England unwittingly steps out before a moving car. Knocked to the road she is carted to the local hospital and watched over by the mother who had accidentally run her down. Showing a surprising lack of injuries aside from a slight case of amnesia, Marion (Kerry Fox) invites Cassie (Christina Ricci) to stay with her family for a few days until her memory returns. Marion’s husband Simon (Stephen Dillane) has just returned from studying a recently uncovered church. Filled with a bas relief of Christ on the cross as well as a group of people watching the crucifixion, the discovered church opens a host of speculation and worry from the Catholic Church. Simon begins to slowly uncover the mysteries of the buried church and as his mysteries begin to come to light Cassie begins to have visions of violence and death to those around her.

Here’s a short film for ya from the folks at Yngturk Film. It’s a bit older, but it’s definitely a classic. Makes me laugh like an idiot every time I see it. Clocking in at 11 min. be sure to watch the whole thing. Those of you with a Dungeons and Dragons background will get an extra special laugh out of it.

I’m not a coat and tie guy. I have a suit. It’s my Marryin’ & Burryin’ suit. Now, I got a new excuse to wear it. Providing that nobody dies this year (I don’t know anybody with wedding plans) this is the only time you’re going to see it.

See, I have a dark secret. One that may surprise a lot of people. When the sun goes down and there’s no gory movies to watch, sometimes….sometimes I’m….Well, I’m a Girl Scout Troop leader. Scary huh? Well, it so happens that tonight was the night of the Girl Scout Father Daughter Dance and since Delaney likes to dance and I got an excuse to wear my fancy little leader pin, we got decked out and hit the town!

Since Delaney looked so purdy, I figured I had to show her off! So pay attention, you’re only gonna see me in a tie once. Once and only once!

Grace and Jim are a college couple heading for spring break. As they traverse the countryside one dark and rainy night they happen upon a car broken down along side the road. With poor visibility they nearly hit the driver of said car standing in the middle of the lane. Narrowly avoiding him, they opt to keep moving and head to the next gas station to call the man a tow. As the hitchhiker arrives at the gas station, Jim feels guilty and offers him a ride to the hotel up the road. As our now trio heads out Grace and Jim soon learn there is more than meets the eye to this quiet hitchhiker and soon their spring break plans make a drastic change.

Sigh…
