Scarecrow Video Psychotronic Challenge
Day 16: VIDEO STORE DAY: This is the big one. Watch something physically rented or bought from an actual video store. If you don’t have access to one of these sacred archival treasures then watch a movie with a video store scene in it at least. #vivaphysicalmedia
Some things I learned from this movie:
-Before Bram Stoker was known for being a writer he was kidnapped by a group of topless, misandrist rat women.
Pizza Hut presents a Thai anti-abortion, pro-pizza tale about a halfwit trapped in a gigantic ladder-less empty swimming pool with a fake CGI crocodile. Sure if you need to survive you can eat hard boiled crocodile eggs, but you’d rather have that tasty Pizza Hut pizza. Don’t ask your pregnant girlfriend to get an abortion, just take her to Pizza Hut for some sweet sweet pizza. In closing, Pizza Hut reminds you to use the hung corpse of your dead dog as a rope. Pizza Hut.
Ooof. This is Mike Flanagan's worst work. It's beautifully shot and the cast is more than game. Not enough story here for 10 hours though. So many monologues addressed directly to the viewer. This also values cheap scares over any real kind of lasting terror. And the finale is just an hour of maudlin gobbledegook. Sigh.
