A Flick of a Switch…

… and I’m confused. One minute Panic Room is on Channel 5 (sorry Five) with the sound off and my podmate and I are praising the set design and cinematography, particularly its sickly green hue. Next thing it slips over to the Horror Channel, which is showing Bloody Murder 2: Closing Camp (buy it here on DVD - if you must - under its UK title). Only thing is, the green tinted shower scene invites the comment/confusion ‘same movie, new characters’. Who knows what else could be going on in the cavernous apartment where Panic Room is set?

Then the cable offering goes back to its routine slasher bobbins and we go back to David Fincher’s superior effort. ‘Dont ya think this movie sounds a little too familiar’ [sic] asks ‘madatme’ of BM2 on the IMDB. Sure do, mad. You mean Friday the 13th, of course. But the striking thing tonight is how edgy, arty Fincher can suddenly have a Troma moment, more by accident than design. Talk about the canonisation of the junior branches of culture. Or maybe I need to get out more.

Fine blog. I found your site suitable for another
visit! And when I'm able to surf the web, I look for
blogs as great as your work.
I was in love with your ear plastic surgery blog site.
