:hahaup It sounds a lot like Redneck Zombies, which is absolutely, positively the lowest budget horror flick I've ever seen.

I didn't rent this, but I just borrowed "Matewan" from a friend. It's based on a true story about a coal mining strike near where I grew up, but I've never seen it.
Snowie, 2,000 Maniacs looks promising. :laugh I'll have to check it out.
Secret Window :phhht it's a good thing Johnny Depp is hot. :ohno
John Turturro was hilarious in that one. The ending was terribly predictable.
2,000 Maniacs is a great campfest of a movie!
Okay, so tonight we were in the mood for something light, so we rented 50 First Dates. It's like Memento re-imagined as a romantic comedy! We liked it, it was cute and sweet. I like Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore anyway, and their whole cadre (like Rob Schneider--I kept wanting him to yell, "You can do eeet!".
Dinahann - 2000 Maniacs is not even in the same league as Redneck Zombies...or most of Troma's films for that matter...But you are correct in saying how cheap RZ looks, it was shot on video, whereas 2000 Maniacs was shot on film. 2000 Maniacs did have a plot at least :)
Looks like I'm gonna have to break out my "Something Weird Video" collection again.
Last week's rentals: some highs and some lows.
Vampire Hunter D: Bloodlust, ****
Now this is anime! "Cowboy Bebop" left me so disappointed a while back. This one made me forget that one. The action sequences are stunning. The best I've seen in a movie (animated or non-animated) in a while. If you like vampire movies, this one is a must.
8 Mile, ***
I wanted to see this for the longest time. Liked it. Eminem came off pretty real which surprised me
The Terrorist, **
Slow moving drama set in India about a female terrorist who gradually develops a conscience. Not bad. I just wasn't totally in the mood for something slow-moving and serious.
Swimming Pool, ***(*)
One of the hardest films to interpret since Mulholland Drive. Enjoyable even if you don't fully get it. Extra star for Ludivine Sagnier's heavenly body.
Capturing the Friedmans, ***
While watching this doc, I couldn't help but recall the line, "That is one angry clown" from Seinfeld. You could say this movie is about that clown's dysfunctional family. Very real. It about a real-life family torn apart by the father's "alleged" illegal activities. There were moments I felt enraged, disgusted, and sad. Not exactly feel-good.
Cabin Fever, **
Power Puff Girls, **
Great animation. That's about it.
This week's rentals: Morvern Callar, Millenium Actress, The Devil's Backbone, Spirit.
Kill Bill Volume 2 - rented it last night. :up :up
Not as much blood/gore as Vol. 1, and a truly amazing fight scene between Uma Thurman and Darryl Hannah. Very good indeed.
I just watched 13 Going on 30. I lost interest about halfway through the movie. I thought it just dragged on with no climax or anything. I give it :up :down
