Ok. Let me tell you about my day. I went in at 4. When I got in, we had one driver. No manager, no insider. Guess who got to do his job, by himself, including several party orders for an hour?
So after that fiasco, I decided I wanted to see wholesale slaughter to work off some agression. (For the record, since Saturday, I have worked 37 hours. Of course with the pay week split...) So any way, at the halfway point in my shift, I walked over to Blockbuster and rented Jason X.
Ok, As happy as I am to see Friday the 13th enter the modern era of cheesy CGIO effects, Jason's new suit (in the last 20 minutes, as usual) made him look like a Mighty Duck from the Disney animated series. Bad puns, a few riffs on the grandaddy of slasher flicks (I know, Halloween originated the genre, but it only has 7 sequels, 8 if you count Season of the Witch), but still damned amusing. It was kind of like watching Cleopatra 2525 with Jason. And as an added bonus, most of the murder death kills were actually on screen for once. A definite step up from VIII and IX. Still not quite as good as The New Blood (with the telekinetic) or the original, but a decent movie none the less. Makes me actually think Jason vs. Freddy might be worth seeing.
In the meantime, I'm still waiting for both The Ring and Ghost Ship to come out. Although I keep hoping Dark Castle will start incorperating William Castle's old gimmicks again. I would pay money to see a remake of The Tingler complete with the buzzing seats. Or House on Haunted Hill with the Emergo technique in place. (In the orginal, they flew skeletons over the audience during the climax.)
I can't wait for Studio 35's 24 hour marathon. Not only will Bruce Campbell be there, We get Evil Dead I & II!!!!!!!!
Yes, I'm a horror movie junkie. Have been ever since I first saw Fright Night.
Anyway, I'm off to bed. I have tomorrow off, and am planning on tracking down the Japanese version of The Ring
