I'm by no means the first horror blogger to come up with the idea of a monthly film club, but it's something i've wanted to give a shot since I started this thing and now that a couple people actually read it i've decided to finally take the initiative. So here's how it's gonna work...
Each month i'm gonna pick a movie to watch and anyone who wants to watch along with me is more than welcome to. This is not an exclusive club here with limited members. Anyone and everyone is welcome to take part. Every month i'll choose a movie that i've never seen before and at the end of that month, i'll post my review. If you have a horror blog, website, or any place you can think of that can be linked to, post a review of the movie on there after you watch it (within the next month) along with a link back to my blog and then email me your link. When I post my review, i'll return the favor and link to all of you at the end of it. It's that simple. If you have no outlet to post a review, just watch the movie and wait till I post mine. You can then post yours in the comments section. These can be full on long reviews or just short little summations of what you thought. There's really no set rules here. We all watch the same movie, we all review it, we link to one another, and we all live happily ever after. Phew. Any questions?
So without further adieu, the first movie in the film club will be...
Stuck stars Mena Suvari as a nursing assistant who drives head on into a homeless man, played by Stephen Rea, on her way home one night. The man becomes literally STUCK in the windshield of her car and, not wanting to jeopardize a possible job promotion, she decides not to alert the authorities! Instead, she drives the car on home and parks it in her garage, where a brutal battle for survival rages between the two.
Check the trailer!
Looks and sounds interesting enough, right? Believe it or not, it actually is based on a true story! Can't make this stuff up! Stuck is directed by Stuart Gordon of Re-Animator and From Beyond fame, and i've been dying to see it ever since it came to dvd a month or so ago. I'm a big fan of both Gordon and Rea and I can't wait to sink my teeth into it!
So let's watch it together!
Now if you've already posted a review of this movie on your particular blog, go ahead and email it to me now! Also, if you're gonna take part in this months film club, please leave a comment and let me know you'll be participating! You've got a whole month and all kinds of cheap and even free ways to check out the movie, so you've got no valid excuses not to!
You have till December 19th!
