Before moving on to the main topic, just wanted to say that Hari Raya was blast!, raining aside...this year's raya surpasses last year's.for one I got to see an old friend who's now married, with 2 kids(the 2nd one on the way)..to tell tu the truth, I was skeptic bout his life, married at 21..how can he survive, but from what I saw that day..he seems fine,better than fine actually...kudos to him.And to those that is celebrating Raya, Selamat Hari Raya,mohon maaf atas segala dosa ek.Sorry letak wish kat blog lambat benor..
So Halloween is coming, :D...no im not celebrating Halloween, but I will be watching loads of horror movie..still thinking which classic should I watch..would it be SCREAM or HALLOWEEN...hmmm
Anyway have started watching Horror movies before 31st,while I was in Ipoh I brought like 3 new never heard horror movies just for fun...but those movies were not the one that I watched yesterday.Yesterday I watched FEAST.
Let me start out by saying what an AWESOME flick!..This flick is a project done for that kinda ok reality show Project Greenlight 3, it finally got pick up by Dimension (thank u dimension!),prior to watching this flick I was a bit skeptic cause mix reviews have been thrown at it, but Arrow (my fav reviewer) nearly gave it a perfect score..so skeptic aside, I'm still gonna watch this flick.
Like before Feast is awesome, slick and funneyyyyyyyyyyy.Oh, not to mention gore gallore.Think something like FROM DUST TILL DAWN vs DEMON KNIGHT.Both great flicks about people beeing stuck in one place because a monster/demon/etc is outside trying to get in.Here, the settings is a bar somewhere in the desert and the monsters are somewhat like...erm i dunno how to describe it, but I didnt like it..at first!But we'll get back to the monster later.
Now regarding the plot, yes it's been done lots of times, but so what..not everything is the same, in this flick the jokes are funnier than most "trapped" horror movies I've seen and the characters are all well develope...AND the most important...they are actually not that typical.Some of the characters that died early on, I really didn't predicted..I REALLY REALLY didnt predict it.Like wow, so the fun part is, it kept me guessing who will survive, but near the ending you gotta know by then who'll survive...and it's not just 1 or 2 person...unlike most horror movie.
I also like the stating where they introduce the characters one by one with jobs,status and also life expectacy (which is really misleading!)..it was both funny and cool.Editing style is your typical MTV style,but I dig it, at least its not like Death Tunnel, where u wanted to vomit more than beeing in awe.
Gorewise was awesome, u got cut legs,smash heads..blood was everywhere...wohoooo!The gorriest part however was the eye pulling scene...ouch!..really ouch!..luckily i wasnt eating..(though i've never vomit before while watching a gore movie...yet!)
The actors are all good!Loved the heroine, but I loved Krista Allen (Tuffy..oh she's hot i tell ya, even hotter that she was in Baywatch) more,she's credible as the mom.The grandma was cool and funny,so's the bartender.And Balthazar(Bozo) was funnyyyyyy.Loved his comment.FYI script is not an issue here.
Now the bad, I hated the monster, it looks stupid..somewhat like that big ass thing in The Village,but with more slime...but that was the first 1 hr and 5min, then it showed its true self...now that I like, it came of something like the Resident Evil's licker.Thats one, then some of the jokes are just plain wrong..and gross, I really don't appreciate the humping jokes..this one scene, the baby monster hump a girl in it's mouth..and first i didnt get it, then!I was like oh dear god...so not cool.It made the movie a bit classless.
But all in all, it's still a great flick, loved it!Should have watched it Halloween nite but oh well.I give it a 3.5/5.Oh just for fun, i'm putting all the characters images and description below, try guess who made it out alive.
I end with SELAMAT HARI RAYA SEMUA
