(A Note From Derek: We got our hands on some new equipment this week, and we're still working with it to get the best sound we can. Naturally, there may be a few teething problems, so please be patient while we get these newfangled doohickeys working right. Thanks!)
This week, the guys decided to look at a re-make make of a Vincent Price classic. But don't let the fact that Price is not in it deter you from watching it.
|That's what Chris Kattan is for!|
|But, for the most part, you're stuck with these guys.|
|And it's all Dr. David Arquette's fault.|
|Maybe he needs help with his Jazz Hands, because he just can't get it right.|
|Even Dr. Trent's eyebrows can't save them now!|
|But Evelyn wants all the money. As well as a little bit of murder.|
Somehow, Evelyn ends up strapped to a table and electrocuted. The others force price into this weird chamber where he has to watch a cinematograph of what looks like John Cleese playing basketball in a tuxedo while the lights strobe. This was designed by the crazy doctor at the beginning, who believed that if this sort of thing could drive a sane man crazy, it totally had to work the other way, right? Anyway, he's locked in, and the others go off looking for an exit again.
Well, it seems to work because, surprise! Evelyn's not dead! Dr. Eyebrows gave her Atropine to make everyone think she was dead, because they are both terrible people who do terrible things. Case in point: Feeling that her (fake) death was not enough to turn everyone against Price, she decides that murdering Dr. Eyebrows would be just right, so she does.
But we have to wonder...Will her plan to murder Price work? What about his plan to murder her? Will anyone find Nora? Or will it all be thrown out the window for a ridiculous "Tittie Smoke Monster" (a term coined by Jake)?
|Did you really have to wonder?|
Jake has a deep love of this film. Although it is absurd, it captures the spirit of the original, and Geoffrey Rush's attempt at being Vincent Price is absolutely amazing. He does, however, not care for the CGI, which can best be described as "like The Matrix (which came out the same year), but not!"
Larry also likes this film unnaturally. His intense dislike of Chris Kattan, however, can only be described as "exactly like any right-thinking person would feel." For him, the CGI was also not very good at all, although it didn't take him out of the film like it did in Below, mostly because there was more gore.
Derek is all over the map on this one. While he didn't care for most of the movie, he felt the only problem with the CGI was that it lacked dimension. As for Chris Kattan...While he agrees that Kattan is an awful human being who should never be allowed to utter words in front of a camera ever, he also gave the most realistic performance. Weird.
So put on your straightjacket, strap on your murderin' shoes, and tune in to this week's episode!
