Have Friday ya’ll. Ready for some Friday Film Recommendations? Well, too bad! Here they are:
Alien invasion movies are awesome. Throw in crazy crop circles and video encounters and you got Signs. I wasn’t a big fan of the “message” in the end even though I’m a big believer in “signs” and such but meh, I still think this movie rocks. The two things I loved about this movie was first, the scene with Joaquin Phoenix in the closet (hehe) watching the news and seeing footage of one of the aliens. That scene gave me the jeebies! The second scene is when they are all in the basement. I love that the world was basically ending outside the door. We know nothing about what’s going on in the world, who’s winning, we have to drawn our own conclusion and we see what this family sees and only know what they know.
Patrick is a psychopath in a coma. Once he gets a hot new nurse, he uses his psychic magical powers to harass her and make her life hell. Pfft, typical male.
I don’t know what bothered me more about this movie, Patrick’s desperate need for a hand job or his uni-brow.
This is on the remake list so check it out before then.
My non-horror pick of the week.
An ordinary man with a mundane life enrolls in a drug study for an anti-depressant. He experiences the side-effect of thinking he has super powers. His fake abilities lead him to believe that he should be a Super Hero!
I love the concept of this movie because I have too many “in rut” moments in my life and yes, to feel special, different from the rest, is a nice feeling. Zen.
A broken-hearted guy summons a demon to help him find his girlfriend who was taken away by another demon. What I thought was going to be a straight up serious movie ended up being something you would think Joss Whedon and Sam Raimi did together.
This has some Faust flair and hit my girl side with mixing love with horror. The guy finds out things about his girl that would make a normal guy say “eh, fuck this shit, I’m out.” But he still loves her and is willing to give up his soul and go to hell to be with her. *sniffle*

Got an hour? Well, you only really need like 46 minutes.
I can’t believe it took me so long to see this! NPH singing, Nathan Fillion in a tight shirt… singing… Hello. Joss Whedon can do no wrong in my book.
It’s been a while since I’ve seen this but I remember thinking it reminded me of a French Texas Chainsaw Massacre-esque. I also remembering thinking it was awesome so maybe you will too!
I haven’t seen it this but when I saw it listed on FearNet, I thought, hey, it’s the end of “Women in Horror” Month so this is my “Hey, it’s the end of Women in Horror month” selection.
Have a great weekend!
