OK y'all, I just possibly watched the best horror movie on the planet. I have a new favorite - it may even surpass Texas Chainsaw Massace, if that is even possible.
Jim and I had "Horror Fest" starting Friday night. (it was Friday the 13th, you know!) We rented 6 horror movies and had popcorn and candy.
"Feast" is FUCKING AWESOME. I mean it. It has everything - a generous amount of gore, appropriate suspense, a good story, and the most hilarious script I've ever heard. Even the monsters are good. I was never bored, and I think in one part I laughed so hard I peed a little - and it was obvious that it was the director's intention for you to laugh. The director takes every horror movie cliche and fucks with it. At first I thought, "ok, this is corny" - but NO, its not. The only corniness is intentional - and the rest is like OMG did that just happen? When's the last time you could say that about a horror movie? I've been so disappointed with movies in the last 10 years or so. Every now and then one comes out that I like, but I'm never so "wowed" that I'm clapping at the end.
I'm buying this movie. Seriously, if you are a horror fan - you'll like it.
As for the other 5 movies I rented...eh.
Unrest - it was ok - slow start. Pretty good rental.
See no Evil - lacking. A couple of good kill scenes.
Hard Candy - good acting, decent movie, but I wouldn't buy it.
Pulse - stupid.
The Pumpkin Karver - I wanted to rip my own eyeballs out. I was laughing, but it wasn't the director's intention...
