I don’t think I need to explain The Exorcist. Made in 1973, I’m sure everyone of you has seen it :D On the other hand, We Need to Talk About Kevin may not be so popular. If you haven’t seen it, I highly recommend it! It’s follows the life of the mother of a teenage mass murderer, Kevin, and the social and psychological mess that she has to suffer through. She’s played by Tilda Swinton, who fit the character perfectly (yup, the White Witch in the Narnia movies). I always thought she had a good “look” for a movie like this.
The movie cuts to and from scenes of her past and the present, where people constantly abuse her and vandalize her home. Her past shows how her son, Kevin, evolved into a killer. I found that this was the most interesting aspect of the movie. Kevin, her son, seemed to be born “evil” and seemed to enjoy hurting others, even his “loved ones”. He was even diabolical enough to fool his father into convincing him that the mother was the bad guy. It made me question if a person can really be born “evil”. Can a person be born psychologically immune to a nurturing household and family? As a father, it made me want to hug my kid and thank the gods for not giving me an evil one :D Anyways, definitely check it out if you don’t mind being a bit disturbed.
Both of these movies are about a notch less disturbing than “Requiem for a Dream“, my all-time disturbing movie leader, so I’ll be alright since I’m partially desensitized :D Oh, great, mentioning Requiem has reminded me of it. That should add some more spice to my nightmares!
Enjoy Scene 30 – “Greybane’s Story”! Oh, and to clear up the confusion:
Geoffrey = Greybane’s scientist-turned-zombie friend.
Gregory = Killed by Bernie for his part in the blood farms. Scott’s dad.
George = The travelling vendor who sold Scrufflebeck to Bernie.
Sorry about all the “G” names! Didn’t think of it ’til now :D
