Spooky

~  Okay, so if you’re going to do a remake of The Omen, first thing you should do is whenever someone is writing a lengthy, scathing review online — crash their computer.

But barring that, keep in mind if your female lead is Julia Stiles, it’s best to not cast Mia Farrow against her to constantly remind the audience of how much better Mia Farrow was playing essentially the same character in Rosemary’s Baby.

Ha! Try to stop me this time! You may have erased four paragraphs of my rapier wit, but not my spirit!

EDIT: One great thing about last night’s film was there’s a scene where a priest who’s been disfigured in an unholy fire removes his monk’s cowl to reveal his twisted ugliness and a girl in the audience shrieked.

    the thing about that shriek was how it was totally delayed. disfigured face revealed, one second, two seconds, three — and, shriek. the terror took moments to register.

      I think I have it figured out. Her date picked that unfortunate moment to make his move and kiss her neck — or maybe lick it — and she realized he was as disgusting as the priest’s gooey white eye.

  6. I’m willing to bet that the shrieker was a plant. The hired-by-the-theatre kind, not the growing-in-dirt kind.

    Ah… and they missed their cue. That would explain the delay…
