Devil Week rumbles on towards its inevitable conclusion tomorrow, I can tell you it’s been a mixed bag. Starting badly for me with The Devil Inside, reaching mediocrity with the lift-bound Devil and reaching new heights with The House of the Devil yesterday. I hope you guys have been enjoying Devil Week as much as me and Eric! My pick for today is the Devil’s Tower but if that doesn’t float your boat, why not go and see what Eric’s been up to?
Cheap, crass and sometimes tasteless but actually not all that bad. Quite good fun, actually. I mean, I couldn’t really recommend it except maybe to Eric or Emma, but I actually quite liked it.
Roxanne Pallett (of Emmerdale fame*) plays an 18 year old** who moves into a crappy tower block to get away from her abusive mother. Her sad little flat could be really depressing if it wasn’t for the warm welcome from her neighbours, oh wait, no, her neighbours are THE WORST! Seriously, I’d happily deal with the Devil himself it meant I didn’t have to deal with the ABSOLUTELY AWFUL woman who lives next door. Honestly, I can’t think of anything worse than a shrill, interfering, hyperactive tart who lets herself into my home without warning (or knocking) and bosses me around. GET INTO THE SEA YOU IRRITATING BINT!
Poor little Roxanne then gets burgled by, and then somehow becomes friends with Jay of Jay & Silent Bob fame, and that’s actually kind of lucky because this is the Devil’s Tower. Which for some reason involves some spooky, supernatural goings on, some unexplained deaths and then a horde of zombies. So it’s good that she had a friend to look out for her, huh?
This super low budget little film has an adorable lead, noisy next-door sex, dialogue like this: ‘Get yourself a fuckin’ Lambrini’, a zombie with an erection, an inexplicable American and zombie nipples.
Score: 7 pitchforks out of 10
*That’s a long-running English soap opera about farmers.
**She was 31 when this was filmed.
Tune in tomorrow for the final instalment of the first ever Devil Week with The IPC and Filmnerd.
Not satisfied? Can’t wait? Want more devil now? You’re in luck… why not go and see what devilish business is going on over at Eric’s place?
Sounds…. interesting. lol
Probably not to everyone’s taste (or anyone apart from me!), but I liked it.
Yes, yes, yes!!! You know me Laura 🙂 YES!!! Thanks for the shout out my great friend! And yes I will 100% watch this.
And I just can’t effing believe Jay (Jay and Silent Bob) is in this?!!! With the girl from Emmerdale? I feel like I did when I read Stacey Solomon and Steve O were a couple.
And that made me giggle out loud about 31 year old Roxanne playing an 18 year old !
Emma, you’re the best! I love that you love films nobody else would even consider!
I had a lot of fun with this. It isn’t the best, and the devil/zombie premise is muddled, but I liked it. I hope you do, too. You can watch it here:
Also, Stacey Solomon a Steve O what?!!!
Hahaha! That’s me!!!
I watched “The Human Race” on Netflix yesterday. Did the 1 star rating bother me? No. Did the “don’t waste your time!” reviews on IMDB bother me? No!
Yes it was pretty silly but it was still entertaining!!!! If you go in with an open mind and KNOW what to expect then….it can still be a fun movie!
I know!!!!! Strangest celeb couple ever!! (or was that Catherine Tate and Jason Orange?)
Thanks for the link, I bet I’ll enjoy it! 🙂
My dear fn,
I’m not so sure about this one but zombie nipples?? I’ll have to look into it.
What the shit, Eric?! This film is TOTALLY your cup of tea. If you and Emma don’t like it, it has no business existing!
My dear fn,
Like it or not, #iloveyou
You’re the best #winning #thebest #etc
Hahaha! Laura… This sounds so YOU! 😉 Hmm… A zombie with an erection? I don’t think that’s actually possible! Lol #nipples
Kind Regards From,
An inexplicable American in the UK 😉
I’ll take that as a compliment (that this sounds so me!). I had a lot of fun with this, but I don’t think it’s of a high enough quality for your refined tastes, perhaps steer clear…
Your good friend,
Lol. I did mean it as a compliment! 😉
Not just any old nipples, zombie nipples!
