I am writing in this hideous orange color in honor of the holiday. I love to have feasts of candy and movie marathons on Halloween. Today I am watching: The Black Cat, Child's Play, Audition, and possibly Funny Games. I love this holiday!
So don't get excited; this film has nothing to do with the Edgar Allen Poe story. It is closer to...it hurts to even say the name of this movie...The Rocky Horror Picture Show. I despise that movie, but there will be plenty of time to talk about that when that review comes (I know you can't wait). A couple is trapped in a mansion in Hungary after a car accident. Dracula costars.
First of all, I was disappointed that "The Black Cat" didn't have anything to do with the movie. The fact that it resembled that film was salt in the wound. I thought it was kind of boring. I was all ready to be scared and then it was just lame.
The director used the name Black Cat so people would go see it, thinking that it was the Poe story. Well played.
The villain was partly based on Fritz Lang.
If you want to watch a scary movie today my recommendations are Ringu, Psycho, Paranormal Activity, or Blair Witch Project. Those are the scariest movies I have ever seen.
