Three hours and sixteen minutes left...

Tonight I'm seeing the 10:00 showing of Snakes on a Plane at Point Cinema with half of the people on my livejournal friends list. Yes, yes, I know, I know. But it's a social outing and I was curious enough to see it anyway... You'll hear about it later, I'm sure. Apparently the rest of the group (or some of 'em, anyway) are getting together beforehand for a pre-movie party, but I'm practicing with offBeat at seven, so I'll have to meet up with them at the theater.

In the meantime I'm watching something called Evil Toons which was recommended to me as an "H.P. Lovecraft movie," but it's more than two thirds over and the closest I've seen to an HPL reference is a book that looks suspiciously like the Necronomicon from the Evil Dead movies. The plot (such as it is) centers around four sorority girls who will do anything (nudge nudge, wink wink) for a hundred bucks. For the more naive readers of my journal, those italics, nudges, and winks are a subversive secret code for "spending the night in a deserted house, accidentally unleashing the malign spirits that live inside the Psuedonomicon (or whatever it's called), and then hiding the bodies from the landlord when he shows up."

IMDB tells me that the female leads were minor porn stars in the '80s, which may explain why they can't act. It's not really titillating (though it's trying), it's not a good horror movie, and its only saving graces are a bit of technically impressive but otherwise pointless cell animation, and Dick Miller slumming it as the landlord. Oh, you don't know who Dick Miller is? Didn't you ever see A Bucket of Blood? No? Oh, well. Never mind, then.

Woah. David Carradine just showed up. And the movie's still lousy.
