Its coming..

In some fit of insanity I put "Martyrs" on my Netflix Que and now it is coming. Won't be here till Tuesday, and I can't watch it with my husband in the house, so I will have to watch it Friday night. This film is going to sit around and infect my apartment with its nastiness. Maybe I will call in sick one day so I can watch it. I should not pre-judge. It is (apparently) so good it warranted cover stories in both Rue Morgue and Fangoria. Of course both magazines suggest that this film is not "OK." Meaning, maybe a film like this shouldn't exist? Whatever. I survived "Eraserhead" and I will survive this.

Or maybe not. Check out this review: http://criticalmassreviews.blogspot.com/2008/10/martyrs-2008-pascal-laugier_27.html
What does he mean that once you have watched it, you can't un-watch it?

Please don't watch it! don't! OHMYGODDON"TWATch!



Okay, when are you going to write about the similarity between real life and zombie movies? Global pandemic! The beginning of all modern zombie movies! I need guidance, Jennifer! They're even saying the swine flue has already mutated and it's not as deadly- you know what that means. What does not kill you--- makes you a zombie@@!@@!!!

I love you. I'm sorry. I will shoot you in the head the next time I see you.

Its not the Swine flu anymore. Now it is called H1N1, or hienie, as I call it. The Pork Industry got all upset about the Swine flu name. I figure it will take about a year for H1N1 to mutate into a zombie virus, so make you plans now. 2010 is the year of the zombie!!! Keep washing your hands!

P.S. I knew I could count on you to shoot me in the head!!
