|The Most Wonderfullest Time of the Year!
||[Oct. 2nd, 2008|03:30 am]
That's right, it's October, and those in the know...mostly exwives (You'll get your money when I get around to mailing it...Damn!) know that I try to watch at least one horror film a day for the entire month. More on some days, because some trilogies are better on the same day (Evil Dead).|
This year, I've started with Scanners. So, sue me. I made a mistake and watched a science fiction film for my first horror. To be certain, there are horrific aspects of the movie, but, this is pure science fiction the way that any space opera is. But, Michael Ironside from damn near thirty years ago creeps me the fuck out!
Also, I'd forgotten just how bad an actor the guy who plays Cameron (Stephen Lack) was. I've seen less wooden portrayals from Pinnochio! He's got the look, though, and can't be discounted all that quickly.
A couple of scenes save this movie. Normally, I'd not suggest a movie based on two scenes, but the two in question here are totally worth it!
Tommorrow...Bram Stoker's Dracula. Yet another one I'd hardly call a horror film, but man, did Gary Oldman save that movie!
