One of our movies this week is full of magic and wonder. Swords and sorcery. The other one is a bit more murder-y. We explore the adventurous world of Willow alongside the dark streets of Chicago being haunted by a possessed doll: Willow & Child’s Play.
When a one-night stand turns into a couple of nights… and then Dan suddenly remembers he’s married to a fantastic wife, has a great kid, and a fairly low-maintenance dog… you’ve got either a recipe for disaster or bunny soup. Whichever one sounds tastier.
Take the cast of ALIENS and put them in Oklahoma… and make them vampires. Then you’ve got Kathryn Bigelow’s feature film directing debut: NEAR DARK.
(I wonder what Paul Reiser would’ve looked like as a vampire…)
It’s the epic love story for the ages: Girl meets boy. Girl marries boy. Girl is bored with husband and has affair with husband’s brother. Brother-in-law gets bored with the limits of earthly pleasure and pain and gets ripped apart and taken to another dimension. Girl moves into brother-in-law’s old house and ultimately discovers undead skinless brother-in-law in the attic. Girl begins to seduce and murder random men to help restore brother-in-law’s physical body. Eventually demon/angel with pincushion head shows up and raises hell.
