And here we are again:  Day 18 or some such.  Time has no meaning these days.  Yes, I’ve fought a lot with my computer today, and Microsoft Word is now broken.  This one will be short.

Ah well, let’s just keep on keepin’ on! 

TODAY’S FILM: The Night Evelyn Came Out Of The Grave

Redheads- one of my only weaknesses besides bullets, poison, public singing, and old episodes of X-Play.  This movie is full of them (redheads) due to the fact that they’re the victims of a madman we’re supposed to root for.  His ex-wife was a redhead, and… well, sometimes you have to kill them off one by one in order to make the voices in your head shut up.

What the hell am I talking about, you ask?  Here’s the trailer!

THE TRAILER

THE RECAP, BRICK PRIOR STYLE

NOTE:  I too have been taken aback by all the nudity in old school trailers.  It’s like seeing foreign TV and wondering why we can’t be that progressive, I tells ya.

Alan is a batshit crazy rich man that escapes from a mental hospital and takes up killing redheaded prostitutes in his castle in order to try and escape his late ex-wife’s grip on his life.  You see, Evelyn ended up humping someone in the forest, and it made him lose his marbles.  He now has a predilection to killing redheads much like I have a predilection to eating fried chicken; you just can’t help yourself and never can get enough of it.  His friend tries to snap him out of it to no avail… until he meets Gladys, who survives his wrath because she’s a blonde.

Seriously, they meet once and Alan wants to marry her so he won’t feel guilty about sleeping with her.

Even crazy people have morals, folks.

So things go on and conspiracies are brought to light- long story short, don’t have a lot of money because your family will try and get said money by making you go crazy and making you think your dead wife is running around with a cape and a mask on.

The highlight of the film is the circumstances surrounding whether or not Evelyn does rise from the grave- and in a sense, she does.  She’s a manifestation of Alan’s guilt, that last little unfortunate link to his previous life.  She comes back to haunt him when he least expects it… unfortunately, it’s all a ruse.

In a nutshell, this film is all about TITTY TITTY TITTY WHIP WHIP WHIP CRAZY MAN HEY MORE TITS WHAT THE AUNT WAS EATEN BY HYENAS TITTY TITTY SWERVE DID SHE COME OUT OF THE GRAVE YET SWERVE WHAT THE FUCK THE END.

I will force this movie on people because I care.

BRICK’S FINAL WORDS FOR THE DAY

This was misleading as fuck.  I needed some zombie shit to go down, as if I haven’t had enough of zombies just yet. It’s a nice little thriller with some decent scares and some happy visual accidents masquerading as "awesome shots", but other than that, it’s another case of throwing too many eggs into one basket. 

M. Night Shyamalan would dig the fuck out of this one, though…

This is awesome.  This is making me want to bust out some old zombie movies and take a mental health day.  Maybe next week!
