If it weren't hard enough taking a movie directed by Rob Zombie too seriously to
start with, I keep hearing radio ads from his new flick that keep stressing the
name of the character "Doctor Satan" over and over. All I can think of
when I hear this is the scene in one of my favorite movies, Ed Wood,
where Ed is pitching the studio head with movie ideas, all of which are
completely contained in the titles. Cut to wild-eyed Ed: "Doctor... Acula!
Doctor... Acula!" Who knows, maybe Rob will turn out to be an even finer
director than Ed was.
In turn, "Who Goes There?" was clearly influenced quite heavily by H.P. Lovecraft's "At the Mountains of Madness" (1931). Incidently, isn't there a big-budget film version of ATMoM in the works now? I seem to remember reading something about that quite a few months back.
Man, click on his name and see all the crap he spews out. Seriously, Blue should get the kid's IP, contact his ISP and if the ISP is nice enough, get the account's home number so he can tell his parents to take the PC away from him.
...corpses last night. Wow. I actually expected LESS from Rob. Its (the movie..) not as gory as one would expect. Its not as predictable as one would expect. Disturbing? You betchya! Character design? Top notch! I am by no means a horror flick freak, having not seen many of the movies that this one supposedly makes reference to... So I was a bit skeptical when the opportunity arose for me to see a advance screening of it. Being that Rob Zombie was filming less than 5 miles away from my home last weekend, I figured what the hell, I'll check it out. I'm glad I did =)
Old cheesy b-movies are superb entertainment to watch. Classics like Them! and The Thing (original, not john carpenters "remake") are so funny to watch. The hokey special fx and dodgy acting make it all worthwhile.
