07.01.06Internet Even though it's a cannibal movie starring John Saxon, I didn't really connect with this... Maybe it's because it took an hour to get to any sort of cannibalism at all or maybe it's because the whole thing's pretty slow and it's really more a virus movie except instead of getting sick or turning into a zombie you start eating humans instead... but mostly I blame the score. This movie has maybe the worst score ever. Whenever any sort of action or gore breaks out, this ultra-upbeat disco beat kicks in high gear... It's really really strange watching a vietnam firefight and listening to this disco hustle bullshit. Takes me right out of the mood every time.

So tonight's Noir Night was a bit of a misfire... par-for-the-course noirs and a cannibal apocalypse movie that didn't deliver on the cannibals or the apocalypse. Oh well. If i can sit myself down and make myself watch a giallo (it's a qtfest film though and I've heard some good things about it), tomorrow will be Netflix Night... I sat down and made a count today of all the movies i have in my possession that I haven't seen and it came out somewhere close to 70... which is just crazy. So I may make these themed nights fairly commonplace as a method to get through a lot of this stuff that I haven't seen... pretty embarassing to have someone point out a dvd in my collection and I haven't seen it.
