Watching under the influence (of Nyquil)

August 12, 2008 at 5:31 am (Scary movies) (, , )

So I was sick last week. I  borrowed a pile of DVDs from my neighbor and tore through them all except Cursed starring Christina Ricci and that cute guy from Dawson’s Creek. Not that I watched Dawson’s Creek. Ever.

Anyway, Cursed is about this PR minion (Christina Ricci) who’s dating this super-cool club promoter guy (Pacey from Dawson’s Creek) when a werewolf is let loose upon the city of Los Angeles. PR lady and her little bro hit some kind of animal while on their way home one night, causing them to slam into another car. When they attempt to rescue the other driver, the animal, which resembles a giant wolf, drags the passenger into the forest, biting PR lady and her bro en route.

This is where things start to get blurry. Basically, everyone in the movie starts becoming a werewolf somehow and people are all hairy and horny and eating raw meat and things. Then its a guessing game as to which werewolf is the ultimate supreme werewolf that if killed, will release the other folks from their werewolfdom. In the spirit of not ruining the ending, I will offer a list of potential candidates:

1. Pacey from Dawson’s Creek

2.  Portia de Rossi (playing a psychic)

3. Shannon Elizabeth

4. That guy from Heroes who’s dating the cheerleader in real life

5. Scott Baio

6. Kitty from Arrested Development

7.  Craig Kilborn

8. Mya

I’ll give you a hint. Its not who you hope it is. This movie is awful.

To end on a positive note, I leave you with a clip from a much better werewolf movie, The Howling. Did I mention this is really gross? Seriously. I just threw up a little in my mouth when I thought about it. Don’t say I didn’t warn you.

    Heroes makes me so mad.

    It also makes me want to buy a Nissan Rogue for some reason.

    “makes my nerdy boyfriend’s friends mad to” … TO, Nathalie? TO?!

    Look where your OSU English degree has gotten you now!!!!!

    I’m making $12 an hour and I have a college degree. I think I have larger post-graduate issues than a dropped ‘o’. DON’T YOU JUDGE ME WILLIAMS!

    I really hate myself for that dropped ‘o’. I’m going to go darkly obsess about it now because that is what post-graduate English degree holders do.

    I know. That’s why I brought it up. I knew you had nothing better to do at work. Loveee youuuuu.
