I am not only gonna be talking about the Australian 2009 flick The Loved Ones in this little review I am also gonna start out by going down memory lane. Remember freshman year? When late nights in the common room meant stealthy drinking, imagining your female dorm mates naked, and hoping that, that hot girl on the second floor would walk through in her panties again (holy shit that was a moment). Well there was a SPECIFIC part of freshman year that I will remember for the rest of my life… and its not sex.
For the last five years I’ve dedicated my Valentine’s Day to watching horror flicks! Violent, Gory, and Disturbing horror movies are the truest expression of love! Since we are all *sniff* apart I thought I would expose you to a few horror movies that will make you love again or not! I am limiting myself to movies on Netflix and YouTube for your convenience. I’ve chosen movies with a romantic subplot that I found to be more complex. In past years I’ve picked movies that have people eating hearts or movies that would make you swear off love but this year I wanted to pick movies that were a little more optimistic about the thing called love. Obviously the films may be pessimistic or messed up but I think the romance shines through!
“A television show that is a prequel to not only one of the greatest horror movies but one of the greatest movies PERIOD? You know you are stupid right?” -Is what I would say to whoever came up with the idea for Bates Motel… if it wasn’t actually good.
I DON’T WANT TO SPOIL PSYCHO EVEN THOUGH ITS 54 YEARS OLD
Punk Rock and Trailer Parks by Derf is a period piece coming of age story that doesn’t make you want to kill yourself or others. Isn’t that all we can ask for? Set in 1980’s Akron, Ohio Punk Rock and Trailer Parks stars Otto “the Baron” Pizcok a seven foot tall trombone playing nerd who has self styled a larger than life reputation. He quotes Lord of the Rings like scripture, peeps through the window of a ample bosomed classmate, and drives a car with no floor and a tiny wheel that fits in only one hand. Otto’s life changes when he attends a Ramones concert at a local club and finds his true calling and a subsequently a job working there encountering several iconic punk bands like a sort of punk rock Forrest Gump except with a lot less schmaltz.
