SHOCKTOBER: trick ‘r treat October 20, 2009Posted by mrstetris in Uncategorized.

It is said that Halloween is the night when the dead rise to walk among us and other unspeakable things roam free. The rituals of All Hallows Eve were devised to protect us from their evil mischief, and one small town is about to be taught a terrifying lesson that some traditions are best not forgotten. Nothing is what it seems when a suburban couple learns the dangers of blowing out a Jack-o-Lantern before midnight; four women cross paths with a costumed stalker at a local festival; a group of pranksters goes too far and discovers the horrifying truth buried in a local legend; and a cantankerous old hermit is visited by a strange trick-or-treater with a few bones to pick. Costumes and candy, ghouls and goblins, monsters and mayhem… the tricks and treats of Halloween turn deadly as strange creatures of every variety-human and otherwise-try to survive the scariest night of the year.
the interwoven stories seem unrelated in the beginning. then they all fell into place like a giant puzzle. it was a brilliant. i enjoyed the diversity of kills in this movie. the stories were all different yet connected. Anna Paquin‘s all female gang and their end scene was on of my favorite parts of the movie. it was a total WTF?!? moment that had you hooting and hollering! this movie blended together well, it kept me interested and anxious for the next scene. it is one of the best current halloween movies i have seen in a long time. Trick ‘r Treat is a MUST SEE!

pk & i made a vow to attempt a horror movie viewing every night during the month of October to celebrate Halloween! last night, we kicked it off with the French film, Martyrs.
here is the plot summary:
Fifteen years after a horrifying experience of abduction and prolonged torture, Lucie embarks on a bloody quest for revenge against her oppressors. Along with her childhood friend, Anna, who also suffered abuse, she quickly descends, without hope, into madness and her own delusions. Anna, left on her own begins to re-experience what Lucie did when she was only twelve years old.
this movie is not for the weak at heart. it’s incredibly moving, horrific, brutal, and abusive. the strong willingness to survive, the yearn to be loved, and the quest for the unknown are all themes of this movie that are displayed visually through the director’s eyes. the movie almost feels like it’s separated into three parts, each significant. i was thoroughly impressed by this movie, although it was squeamish at times. it can definitely be categorized as a torture film. i highly recommend it though!

the River Thames is the second longest river in the United Kingdom and the longest river entirely in England. check out this sweet video of it!
what did you think of the Watchmen?
personally, i really enjoyed seeing this timeless comic come to life.
here are some of my comments:
- i loved Dr. Manhattan and the use of full male nudity at an R rate movie (it’s about time!). the character looked and sounded great.
- the updated pin up version of Miss Jupiter/Silk Spectre I was fantastic. (i dressed up as her for the movie premiere.) although at the end, it is quite obviously that they caked on the fake ‘age’ makeup. she looks really gross. i was surprised globs of makeup didn’t fall off her face during her scenes.
- the use of pop culture music in this film is ridiculous. ride of the valkries during the viatnam scene? really? felt more like Apocalypse Now! i completely understand the context of using the song: Hollis then explains that that’s why “The Ride of the Valkyries” is the saddest thing he could think of.
it just seemed a little cheap.
- Rorschach was incredible. the actor, Jackie Earl Haley, NAILED IT! seriously, he captured the psychopath brilliantly. i was absolutely blown away by his performance.
- the movie completely cut out the news stand guys. they were the only non-super hero characters in the comic book. they gave a realistic regular average Joe approach of the fear people had of a nuclear war.
- the guy playing Nixon was horrifying. he didn’t look nor sound like Nixon. i could have done a better job purchasing a Nixon mask from the Halloween store and looping a bunch of his speech recordings. for the amount of money this movie was allotted, you think they would get a realistic Nixon.
agree or disagree? let me know what your thoughts are.
