HHFF #21 The Dead Zone – My second Cronenberg and my second Stephen king of this HHFF but unfortunately my only film with Christopher Walken. Walken didn’t do much horror, if you an even call the Dead Zone that, but IMDb does, and I’m drunk, so it is.
HHFF #22 – I Saw the Devil – I find depictions of sadistic violence against women deeply disturbing, but I recognize that’s why these films are so effective. ISTD is another Korean revenge film, but cannibals, decapitations, and severed body parts, this one has more Horror elements than usual. This is a revenge film about the futility and pointlessness of revenge. If I have a gripe, it’s that the premise is pretty goddamn implausible. But it’s not like any of the others really are either.
HHFF #23 Seed of Chucky – Patently ridiculous, but definitely in on its own joke. Jennifer Tilly gives one hell of a B-Movie cannibalistic, self-referential performance as herself, and a demonically possessed doll version of herself. Doing a thing like that can’t be good for a career, but it should be. This is dumb, but it’s laugh out loud funny.
HHFF #24 Rubber – So much more than a film about a sentient tire with telekinetic powers and a pissed off disposition, this is a poetic love letter to the randomness of existence. Unfortunately, I was poisoned half way through the film and died, which is terrible because I was enjoying the hell out of myself.
HHFF #25 Feast II: Sloppy Seconds – This film is a sloppy gory mess with a little bit of everything but the kitchen sink thrown in. Catapulted grandmas, a monster’s corpse that pisses in everyone’s mouth, hot chicks in their underwear covered in blood, Clu Gulager (ALERT!), and wrestling dwarfs with gigantic cocks. But the shit with the baby flying through the air, now that’s poetry.
