I’m big on local horror activities and it seems fitting to any of my local readers to let them know that The Colonial Theater will be hosting the big screen First Friday Fright showing of Child’s Play tonight @ 10pm!
And while you’re there, you can purchase this fantastic poster rendition of the film by JD Korejko!
Powerful opening scenes are hard to come by as Hollywood’s creativity diminishes with each and every year. In fact, creativity and imagination is practically dead in Tinsel Town. Now-a-days, we have to rely on indie productions to fulfill the gaps of dullness in our lives when it comes to fantasy. Luckily, our hi technological ways have brought us the power of recording images; in this case, VHS, DVD and Blu-ray. Joseph Ruben directed a memorable opening scene of Terry O’Quinn, you know, the guy from the hit TV series Lost, walked down the stairs to a mutilated layout. No words, hardly an action had to translate the scene. This is a specific time in perfection.
Jerry Blake is a traditional family man; he enjoys dinner with his wife and child; he works in real estate and provides a good upbringing for the most inexcusable children. This perfect husband is far from perfect. He’s actually a deranged psychopath in search for a traditional family setting and if they turn out disobedient, he turns them into sliced deli meat. After he finishes up, he moves to another serene town on the lookout for a single mother with fatherless kids to work his way into and start all over again.
