HBO (ended 1996)
|I just watched a movie called Teeth. Has anybody heard of it?|
|I didn't like it all too well. The gore was good, but the main problem was that the movie took a point of view that's very glib which pretty much ruined it for me. All guys are shown as rapists and all girls are sluts. There was also a few over the top cartoony stuff. If you haven't seen it I don't wanna ruin it, but it could have been much better. Although as bad movies go it was at least entertaining because it wasn't afraid to show graphic gore in a few parts as well as unexpected nudity. On a different subject: I've wanted to see Poultrygeist for a long time! I love Lloyd Kaufman's stuff. I'll go check out your review on that site. Do you have any idea when it's coming out on DVD?|
|Bloomberg! That's fukin funny. But I think Ron Jeremy would be the best choice. Just picture it. Him just like he is but with a Lloyd Kaufman wig.|
|So, would it be possible to blend horror and comedy in a coherent way, so that they both do their job? Or are they just too opposite to work together?|
So does that mean that just a little humor in horror can make it better? It sort of makes it less gruesome to the eyes (so to speak) and more terrifying?
Is that what you mean?
|I could not let this go unchallenged. Today I was on the weather channel's website. Since I was born and lived in Louisiana and have family there, I follow hurricane season. So I was looking at the Atlantic names this year. And all I can say is I hope that Hurricane "Paloma" comes up from Mexico way.....|
...that is 95 different kinds of awesome. But will they be able to verify that it's Hurrican Paloma?
Oh, and Entertaiment Weekly had a review out on Poutrygeist. A) So that's why Troma sounded familiar (sat down and watched The Toxic Avenger with my cousin a year or so ago) and B) It's a musical? Oh, now I'm definitely going to go see it!
