So after my crappy seats and rough parking and lines and the general overall experience of the Paramount last night, I decided it was worth missing the philipino doc that the Not Quite Hollywood guy did just to avoid leaving south lamar. Unfortnately, the only show left with tickets was this. I tried to be open about it, remembering my experience with Wrong Turn 2 and how that has turned into a really solid movie in my mind.
It sucked pretty bad. It's especially hard at FantasticFest when a movie sucks because the filmmakers are more often than not in the house and super psyched to be playing their movie at the fest and in the theater and thanks to how Tim et al treat the filmmakers with special trips involving automatic weapons or late-night karaoke or whatever i imagine it's a really fun fest to be a part of (several filmmakers have said that they have made or want to make another movie just to get to come back to the festival, which I think is cool), but when your movie sucks it sucks. Sorry.
Setting a sequel to 30 Days of Night in Los Angeles... I really shouldn't have to say any more. I didn't love the first film but will say the thing that made it interesting was that it took place in Alaska. LA is pretty tired. Actually, the vampires in this movie are pretty tired. Screaming pointy-toothed goth dudes do not interest me at this point. Especially screaming pointy-toothed goth dudes in a random ship where the danger we're trying to stop is the ship leaving to go somewhere more interesting and do something you want to see more than what you're watching.
Nothing new with this. Boring.
