I don’t know if any of us ever really get scared in movies any longer – we’ve all seen so much that we’re all anesthetized to any sort of feelings of fear, but if I had to pick a type of movie that gives me The Willies it would be home invasion movies, especially involving fuckers with burlap sacks on their heads. And – while this movie was pretty fucking creepy and effective and had my teeth grinding and my butt cinched, this thing fails at the end because of one of my IPC Grievances and Taints (that I’ve never updated)…
WHY ARE YOU DOING THIS TO US??????? She wails…..
Because you were home. He replies.
That’s almost as bad as the “Because we can” cop out. I think one of the reasons YOU’RE NEXT worked so well, except for how much fun it was, was that there was at least some reasoning all of this was going the fuck on. Here, it’s just because “They’re home”?? Blogga please.
Our friend Luke asked us another question of the month recently and I have yet to reply to him but he asked what scares us in movies. (Editor’s note: I did reply, it’s HERE and this post is great!!) Aside from the idea of some people breaking into my home while I sleep, the thought of someone standing in the darkness of the background really creeps me out. I think that’s why all of the old Halloween movies worked so well for me. The Shape was always there lurking, lurking. The Shape isn’t supposed to grunt and stomp and eat dogs. Fuckin’ Zombie!
Now I’m starting to get a little freaked out so let’s change gears and look at some pretty pictures. Here’s Gemma Ward – isn’t she fresh as a daisy?
Using Free Association, here’s Amanda Seyfried. I think she’s putting up a tent or something:
And, because Google works in such mysterious ways, here’s Raquel Welch:
And, of course, Mary Elizabeth Winstead.
Anyone have any other ideas for the pretty picture wall? Just name them and I’ll go add em in : )
