I watched another movie folks…a HORROR movie…my favorite. It was called CUT and it’s from Psycho Rock Productions and opens in theaters today on Friday the 13th in Los Angeles. It’s playing from 2/13-2/19 at the Arena Cinema Hollywood and if you don’t live in LA – like myself. It will be available on DVD and VOD on February 24th. So. Lets talk CUT.
In CUT!, the apparent is never the truth as an ex-con and aspirant filmmaker set out to manufacture a film by scaring people for real; however, when it goes too far and someone actually dies, the pair decide that killing for real on film is the only way to make a truly terrifying movie.
My thoughts on CUT?!
🙂 I really liked it. I liked how it started with the credits playing…to the way it was shot. It felt to me…very American Horror Story/True Blood. All the prostitutes. (lol) They were all hot. I’m glad they weren’t all cracked out. (lol) They were good on the eyes.
Now…Lane. That dude was a total douche bag! David Banks plays him and man…he did a pretty good job. Soooo many times I wanted to reach through the TV and slap Lane. The dude’s a total dick in the movie and…I liked it. (lol) I mean…for me – I found myself wanting to punch him…but then…he was funny at times then at the end of the movie – – you almost feel kind of bad for him. (lol) Weird. I know. I just like movie’s that can play with my emotions. (lol)
I thought it was cool seeing Suze Lanier-Bramlett in CUT. She’s old school horror – THE HILLS HAVE EYES and THE HILLS HAVE EYES PART II. Classic movies. Gabrielle Stone makes an appearance – not only is she hot but she’s the daughter of Dee Wallace (Stone). Remember her? E.T., CUJO, THE HOWLING, CRITTERS and a ton more!! Yeah. Gabrielle comes from good stock! 😉
The movie itself is really good. I really liked the story – – – if you like thriller, slasher, twisted movies – you should check out CUT. Just when I thought I had it figured out…BAM! A twist. It’s dope.
🙁 I really don’t have any complaints…well…except one. MORE. BLOOD!! (lol) With a name like CUT…I thought there would be more blood – but after watching it – it all makes sense. (lol)
I give CUT... 4 1/2 out of 5 popcorns.
