Directed by David Lynch
Oh man. David Lynch's reign of terror has begun. At least I am delivering one horror film for Halloween. My sister and I are attending an all night horror movie marathon tonight! It should be truly awful, as I think at least one Halloween sequel is on the menu. Fun, fun, fun!
Ugh. Let's get this out of the way. Frequent readers of mine could probably predict I would hate this. Henry Spencer has a baby with his girlfriend, but there is something wrong with the child (think Voldemort in The Goblet of Fire). I read that David Lynch's daughter has clubfoot, so she believes that the inspiration behind the mutated baby was Lynch's regret about having her. If that's true...well, I can't even think about that.
So I guess the filmmakers wanted us to feel disturbed and make us wish we hadn't seen some of the images? Good job, I suppose?
Stanley Kubrick made the cast of The Shining watch this movie to get the feel of the horror genre. You hear a lot of stories about how Kubrick is abusive but that has got to the worst.
John Waters' favorite film. Surprise!
