AT THE MOVIES WITH LEATHERFACE — EVIL DEAD 2
(This piece was inspired through contact with the SERIAL KILLERS)
Welcome to AT THE MOVIES with the loveable Leatherface (that’s me, punk!). I just have to clear up one thing before we get started. Don’t expect this to be the same thing as those run-of-the-mill movie reviews, where anything in French or about homosexual is given the higest rating. No, we don’t do that sory of thing. This is for “alternative cinema.” So proceed, gentle reader…
EVIL DEAD 2: Dead By Dawn
What a movie. What a movie. WHAT A MOVIE! Mere words cannot explain how entertaining this flick was — hilarious gore scenes and enough jolts to keep you screaming. Plus, there’s a certain tongue-in-cheek approach that makes this tons better than “serious” slash movies. My only complain is the slightly disappointing ending, but only because the rest of the movie is so good. If you want great acting, a complex plot, and a socially or emotionally sensitive underlying theme, go somewhere else. But if you want to relax your brain and have fun for an hour and a half, go see EVIL DEAD 2.
That’s all for now. See you next time. Grrrrrrrrrrr………[TONY]
