Good music, bad movie.
At least I got to see some cool colours.
Film #15 of the "Scavenger Hunt" Challenge
14. A film by a director whose films I've never seen
Visually it's pretty awesome. I may have to rewatch it some time, I'm kind of perplexed by it.
The long-anticipated prequel to "Happy Hell Night!"
(i.e. the killers in both movies seriously look exactly the same. And both are solid flicks for entirely different reasons. Check 'em out.)
