HHMMMADNESS: DAY 17
Despite being pretty busy trying to tabulate points for my team, putting together more posts for the blog and stuff, I got a couple movies in today. Some really good ones too in my opinion! So all and all, I think I had a successful day of movie watching.
Kweeny's Rating: Don't piss off MAMA!
Summary: This Spanish-Canadian flick was pretty good, even if the effects could have been done better. I enjoyed the story with the feral children, and though there is no bonuses or much blood at all, it has some genuinely creepy moments. If I have learned anything from this film, it's that adults don't listen to children. Ever.
"Slow down daddy!"
"Someone's in the house daddy!"
"There is a friggen scary bitch outside daddy, and thanks to you being cray cray we are stuck with her!"
Kweeny's Rating: Scalping is all the rage!
Summary: If I know anything, it's that Elijah Wood is a creepy mother fucker. Seriously. This movie is based off of a Video Nasty, and though you'll get some bonuses as it is pretty faithful to the original, it won't get you the full 6 ATB. However, I enjoyed the new perspective they took with it, and the POV change was a nice touch. I know some people din't like that gimmick, but I felt like it gave us a chance to be in the skin of the killer. It's a messed up film to be sure, and do see the original as well to not only get points, but to make up your mind about them.
Kweeny's Rating: He had pretty hands
Summary: I ADORE this movie. It's one of my all time favorites, and it's pretty messed up. She is so broken that she breaks my heart a little every time I watch this, because I feel for her. She has so many moments that are beyond awkward. May is a strange girl with a strange doll for a friend, among other "habits" you'll find out about by watching this. And you'll get bonuses for this one, as there is surgical procedures done while May wears the cutest hand-made dress ever!
