Continuing the 80s horror movie marathon (it's gonna end with "Madman" so just assume everything between there and here is this same delerious night), QT brings out this Canadian flick about... a Funeral Home director who killed her husband and pretends he's still alive and also sort of a killer. What's funny is that QT announces this striking resemblance before frame 1 flickers... and he also says that once you realize that it's a Psycho knock, you can never really un-realize it... which is very true.Even the kitchen and the house is remarkably similar. Of course there's a "trainable" in this one though, complete with copious amounts of ear-hair and the stereotypical dullard Lenny voice. There's also an incredibly scary cat in this that is just the right amount of filthy and mangy. It freaked the hell out of QT and it freaked the hell out of all of us. As the end credits rolled, the cat's name (not "cat" as the ear-hairy retarded dude calls it) is actually "Mitten."

Oh, there's also a really scary sequence where one of these old leathery women that are clearly not hot enough to fill the "hot girl" role but was as hot as the budget allowed displayed some camel toe which HAD to be painful. No way it was coincidental... even if she was parapilegic she would feel that itching at her neck, man. It also went like, too low... know what i mean? like the toe should not have been that long. Frightening.

Anyway, I guess Mike Judge was in the house the previous night along with all the other celebs, but i missed him. I did catch Greg Nicotero talking to the AICN crew behind me tonight though. They were talking about a gag used in Eli Roth's upcoming Hostel (QT had a Cabin Fever shirt on, it was awesome) involving a whole arm filled with blood actually pouring out after it's chopped off. One of the great things about sitting close to Harry and the other AICN guys is that when QT or other special guests make their way down to talk to them, i get to overhear their conversations without being that shameless nerd geekboy that walks up to the crowd of people he doesn't know and just stands there smiling. This way i get to stare and smile but I get to do it from the comfort of my own seat, which is nice.
