TRAILER: THE RUINS

Scott Smith’s novel was pretty good, not as good as the hype machine is saying it is. We will all go see it anyway.

Remember your first car? Was her name Christine?  I doubt it if you are still reading this.  John Carpenter and his synthesizers  scared the piss out kids in this 1983 classic starring Keith Gordon, and John Stockwell.  It’s a pretty familiar story.  Kid buys a clunker car, kid fixes up car, car starts killing ALL THE SHITTERS!  The End.  John Stockwell went on to direct Turistas. Where is Keith Gordon now? Directing episodes of that sick fucker Dexter

FIDO – MOVIE REVIEW

Let me start off by saying that I take zombies seriously and this film doesn’t take cellular reanimation seriously.  What do Zombies do? They come back to life and they eat people or brains to remain reanimated. So when a zombie film fails to answer basic questions like what and why, we are left with pseudo zombies like the ones in 28 Days Later, Resident Evil that are just undead for the sake of melodrama.  Everyone told me I had to see Fido. As a non zombie film its a cute movie, very clever, but lets be honest, its more closely related to George and Lenny from Mice and Men, then it is to George Romero, and its just not for me.  Without going into all the metaphors and symbolism that make real zombies horrifying, lets just say Fido deserves to be in the doghouse.
