I went to go see that thar 3D movie with the pickaxe madman at a special (in that it was a whopping day ahead of release) late night screening. I was stoked to see a 3D horror movie 'cause I missed the whole 3D craze. Which makes me sad. I did see a cut of "The Creature from the Black Lagoon" in 3D, but it was way budget and hard to watch as the greeny grey fuzzy print was hard to focus on.
I'm not sure what Valentine's Day has to do with this new movie, besides ripped out human hearts in heart shaped boxes, but it was a good time. It should be called 101 minutes of pickaxes tot he face. If you're into stupid plots and piles of butchered folks, you're probably already in line. The 3D stuff was well done and easy to watch. Body parts chopped up by pick axes, bushes, branches, arms, midgets, and hurled pick axes all jumped from the screen nicely. DEADLY BRANCHES! Plot, not so much. Acting, not so much. A pair of old dudes delivered their lines so comically (one pictured above), it elevated the acting to stellar. They were amazing and i was bummed when they each ate it.
I also figured I'd share the warning label from the glasses I was given. Beware. Sun-lazers straight through your brain. My brain!
Also, it looks like some folks found the poll and I will be having the chicken salad sandwich...
