  • Rabbit Fever 2006

    ★★½ Watched 15 Aug, 2014 2

    As far as films about vibrators go, it's not much better than 'Hysteria'. If this had followed a more traditional narrative it would have been more enjoyable than 'Hysteria' (which kind of tried to hide what they were actually talking about), but it's a strange mockumentary-sketch show.

    ★★★½ Watched 17 Feb, 2014 6

    Holy frosted-lipgloss and metallic-eyeshadow, Batman! If there was ever the perfect cinematic time capsule for 2001, it's this film. That extra half star is purely out of nostalgia.

    The opening to this film is the perfect example of why late 90s/early 00s teen films were so great - it's completely over the top and everyone is well aware it is. Within 5 minutes, Vitamin C (who had one mediocre hit and still has a starring role in this as a…
