- Bad Times at the El Royale
|05.10.13||Netflix|| Somehow I managed to go this long without spoiling the movie. Really all I knew about it was that it somehow played on the slasher genre which the poster gives away anyway so I considered myself pure - nay, more than pure since by now all the fervor and reaction and blowback on this movie as settled down and people seem to have more or less forgotten about it.|
I liked it pretty well. It's definitely a high-concept movie that will probably live on more for its idea than execution. Kind of like how On The Beach is "That movie where people in Australia wait for the nuclear fallout to get them" rather than a stand-out Gregory peck performance or whatever. Not that being remember for a high-concept is a bad thing. It's a good one, didn't disappoint me. Well... I don't understand how the emergency release is so easy to get to or really why it needed to exist AT ALL considering the one thing you'd never want to do is release especially in an emergency but aside from that I found the idea good enough to support a film.
I will now present my alternate ending which is obviously spoiler-laden so beware... oh wait I'm the last person on earth to see this movie so I don't have to warn anyone about spoilers.
So. What if after the werewolf attacks the girl the stoner guy shoots her dead and yells "YOU'RE THE FOOL! I'M THE VIRGIN!!! WE'RE ALL SAVED!!!!!" and laughs, but then the ancients come up anyway because it was such a lame twist! Come on, genius!!!
