Midnight Scream Fest!

15 Apr

Totally awesome. Not the actual movie, but the fact that from 6 to 12am I watched all four Screams. Back to frickin’ back. I can still hear the screeching violins in my head. How is it that I feel completely refreshed and revitalized after watching dozens of people get brutally murdered before my eyes? The short answer is that the thriller movie experience is pure catharsis. It releases all the pent up aggression I’m not allowed to express and I get to see people act out my unconscious fantasies (poorly). They ran, they jumped, they screamed, they killed; they exercised my muscles while I sat back and ate popcorn! I don’t have a long answer. That one may be too disturbing to explore… Anywho!

WARNING *extremely tiny spoiler alert*

Scream 4 wasn’t as much of a blast as 1 and 2, partly because the focus wasn’t on the thrill of the in-progress murder, it was on the revealed killer (we know who did it by the end of act 2). They broke a lot of Scream ‘rules’, as expected, and updated the 90s analog murders to digital. I don’t like to see iPhones in my Scream series, but the 10 year update was surprisingly smooth. The movie was a too obvious comment on Generation Y’s isolation and selfishness due to overuse of technology (old writer alert), but it was still hilariously self-referential and hokey. SAVED! So go see Scream 4… or else.

These chicks got some classy cooters. No meat curtains!

Oh SNAP!


Gina Gershon is so good, she’s both a whore AND a bitch!

I have to give a shout out to my favorite character, Molly.

She’s the black girl (adorable!) who lets that nasty wainch, Polly, stay with her. She’s punished, of course, for being smart, black, and respectable, by being brutally raped by three men; including Andrew Carver, a singer she idolizes and innocently has a drink with. After she is slapped and punched in the nose, her panties are ripped off and we get to see the whole bloody mess, including a shot of Andrew licking the blood off of Molly’s face while she’s getting raped from behind by one of his bouncers. Polly kicks the shit out of Andrew at the end, but unless she gave him “a broken nose and vaginal tears”, we ain’t square.

Don’t worry, Molly. One day we’ll have black female leads with sexual autonomy. YOU WILL BE AVENGED!!

These Are A Few Of My Favorite… Cult Films.

1 Jul

I admit, I’m not a connoisseur of b movies and cult films, but I love ’em. I had a bet with myself to watch every single film on the blog House of Self Indulgence, but got distracted. I’m also afraid that watching too many bad movies will make me a bad writer…
I don’t like trash cinema (i.e. anything John Waters did before Hairspray). Watching someone eat dog shit or have sex with inanimate objects does not appeal to me. Having said that… included in this list are b, cult, and forgotten 90s films 🙂
