Double your pleasure, double your fun

Alone
C’mon, who doesn’t get all tingly and geeked out at the thought of a horror film featuring conjoined twins? Oh, just admit it. And one of the reviews I read made reference to David Cronenberg and Alfred Hitchcock when describing this film, so put this one on my After Dark list.

As a matter of fact, it has intrigued me enough to put co-directors Banjong Pisanthanakun’s and Parkpoom Wongpoom’s feature debut from 2004, Shutter, onto my ZipList.

Simon Says
At a place called “The Heathers”, “Some ‘tarded boy beat his brother into a vegetable and killed their parents.” Well, there’s yer backstory. Now, doesn’t it sound like a fun place to go camping! And it’s another horror film featuring twins! Showcasing what one reviewer calls ‘one of the most unhinged performances of (Crispin) Glover’s career’! Horror upon horror!!

Man, makes me feel like I’ve fallen into a wormhole that has taken me back to the late ’70searly ’80s.
