This movie had everything going for it. After dropping the Rotten Tomatoes guy off I made my way down to South Lamar and ended up waiting in line for like two hours. I almost went into the Air Guitar movie on a whim but it had sold out so I just sat and waited. One of the sxsw manager dudes said that the producers of this movie were going to treat the entire theater to buckets of beer and chicken strips. So we had free food coming, the movie's based on a book by Jack Ketchum, who I've read his first book and absolutely loved, and apparently the director is friends with Lucky McKee (like everything I've seen from him) and Eric met him and thought he was incredibly nice and cool... plus one of the posters for this movie had a corpse-looking Misty Mundae topless. How can you beat that?

Well... I'm not sure whether to get into the gory details or to just say I was dissapointed and leave it at that. the first two minutes were great... really awesome beginning scene to a movie for sure... but as soon as it said "four years later" it started pushing me further and further away from caring about anything that by the time the ending rolled around it was too late. Ketchum was in the audience and Micah had my copy of Off Season but I didn't even feel like waiting for the Q&A or anything like that. I also spilled most of a full cauldron of free salsa all over myself during the movie so my foot was all sticky and spicy. I was ready to just go home but Micah persuaded me to give the midnight movie a shot to cleanse my palate.
