Event: Horror Movie Night
The first Horror Movie Night of 2011 brought us a tale of a killer…elevator? Yup, this was some good stuff. Horrible (horribly awesome) dubbing was the highlight of this experience. Drinking game: drink a beverage of your choice every time you hear the word “chip”.
Watch this with: Dick Maas’ Amsterdamned (mid-year HMN selection that I have yet to see, but it HAS to be good, right?)
I missed this movie at Fantastic Fest 2008; I made the right decision at the time. This basic story line follows a punk band made up of “disabled” miscreants (disabilities include a stiff arm & lisp) as they prepare for a battle of the bands-style contest. Some moments are very beautifully executed. Sadly those moments don’t last and are washed away by continual gimmicky editing. The film tries very hard to be pretentious, but doesn’t have the intelligence to deliver.
