I REEEEEEEEEEALLY liked this movie and I REEEEEEEEEAAAAALLLLY liked the trailer. That song over the trailer is perfect for something like this. It’s Country (which I don’t like, as a rule) but something about it just really clicked for me. I’ll try and remember to attach it to this post at the end. I love when I come across things like this – and it’s not just because it’s independent – I like it because these guys made a very solid product – independently and they made the movie they wanted to make and, I don’t know, I just loved it. I think, maybe, it’s because this reminds me of my youth – like this could be something I did – without the killing. Remember when we were young and skinny??
Of course, now I’m 200 pounds of Pure USA Grade Beefcake, but I remember how lean I use to be. I also remember being able to stay up all night and getting a box of beer and going out into the country and doing mischief. Like that time we went into that old, abandoned house – the one with the strangely new-ish mattress that was in the old, scary house because I’m sure the rats slept on it. Remember when you hoisted me into the attic and I turned my head around scanning the room with that flashlight and – just like in the movies – I swiveled and came across HUNDREDS of eyes glowing back at me?? Remember how we all ran screaming out of that mother fucker and tore off onto those dirt roads and got stuck in the mud?? We thought that they were demons or such and such but, after sober and sane reflection, I’m sure they were just possums.
Remember when we went into that abandoned hospital downtown and made it all the way to the fucking morgue at the bottom. Remember when we heard something creak and we went screaming out of that fucking thing faster than Jesse Owens??? Remember the Sieber Hotel and how we had to get into it by putting a 2×6 across two windows and “tightrope” across the buildings, 12 stories up?? I still have that keychain I found there. Or how about the old water Power Plant??? I almost died in that thing when I stepped through the corroded, metal walkway. Or Five Mile where the Satan worshippers gathered? Or that old suspension bridge??? Or that time we Peeping Tommed into some house and the guy came after us with a gun???
Anyway, that’s what this reminds me of – without the murder. Dangerous but fun good times from my youth. Now I’m old and my joints hurt and my eyes are bad – but, boy we tore the fuck up out of some shit! How about the time we went drinking until the bar closed and then decided to walk down the street naked with that one chick?? The cops got called and I was too drunk to hop that chain link fence because I didn’t want to rip my balls off so I stood in that fucking tree naked as a baby for two hours with insects crawling all over me…. that wasn’t very fun but now it is, thinking about it.I guess I didn’t say a thing about the movie so here’s he IMDB blurb: Three Texas teens hope to make a break for it and escape their dead-end existence in a cotton-mill town but get sucked into the seedy underbelly of organized crime when one of them steals from the wrong man.
I think, if you watch the trailer you’ll know if you want to watch it or not. I LOVED it! GREAT JOB, TEAM!!
Here’s the trailer:
P.S. If any filmmakers from this ever look here, I LOVED the sequence when they are plotting out the heist. Excellent!
