Not so funny games

Last night we watched this movie, which is by far the most fucked up, most disturbing movie I have seen in quite some time.

I am not going to go into great detail about it, mostly because when I woke up at 5:30 this morning I couldn’t get back to sleep because I couldn’t stop thinking about the movie. However, the two demented guys both looked very familiar, and upon looking at their Wikipedia pages I now know that I recognize one of them for being on Dawson’s Creek for awhile, and that I have never seen the other one except in this twisted, twisted movie.

It was a little slow in places and about there were about thirty minutes’ worth of scenes toward the end that could have been condensed into about five or ten minutes to help speed things along, but the movie was well-made, and terrifying – I was in suspense from the minute the movie started, right up until the end. I am also basically terrified of all strangers now, so thank you, Michael Haneke, for writing this. How do you come up with this stuff, anyway? From now on, I am only watching movies that have rainbows and cotton candy and happiness in them.

Have fun at that haunted house you are going to this weekend. You should stay awake for weeks.

OK. That looks extraordinarily disturbing. Thank you for bringing it to my attention. I'll probably try to avoid it. But then again, my sick, can't look away from a train wreck mind might just think "huh, maybe I should add it to my Netflix que..."

Ooh- now I want to see this. I love movies that truly scare the crap out of me- not that slasher "horror porn" stuff out lately.

I haven't seen a good scary movie in a while...
