Greetings fellow inebriates,
All Hallow's Eve is nigh upon us, and so is the 150th soused cinema review. "Will it be The Shining?" I hear you ask. I'm afraid not. I was just looking for an image that was appropriately Halloween-y. I'll get to Jack Torrance, Wendy, Danny, Lloyd, and the rest at a later time.
Instead, the 150th review milestone will be marked with a title that most of you will not recognize. However, a good number of you will have likely seen the film associated with that title. Confusing? I hope so. But you'll see what I mean in a few days when the review is posted.
In the meantime, enjoy the holiday with a tasty beverage and a good movie. Let me suggest rye whiskey and The Abominable Dr. Phibes (1971). However, if campy horror isn't your bag, The Rum Diary is well worth a trek to the multiplex. I'll give it a full review when the video is released, but for now I'll say that its great to see Johnny Depp back in HST-mode and even better to see Bruce "Withnail & I" Robinson directing again.
