Watching Paint Dry, 1 March 2005
Author: ghoulieguru from The Movie Crypt

I watched this movie, and many brain cells died. I felt like the lead characters. The story concerns a guy who gets attacked while taking a woodland stroll with his girlfriend. For reasons unknown, the attack causes our hero's heart to stop. He's apparently dead, but he doesn't seem to know it. So, he hangs out in his apartment and his girlfriend brings him hot soup and tries to nurse him back to health. Of course, it's only a matter of time before our guy decides to infect his girlfriend with this lovely gift. So, now she's kinda undead too. They hang out in their bedroom and bemoan their fate. Lots of caked on white makeup ensues. She hates him for doing this to her. The End.

I understand that when you have five dollars to make a horror movie, one of the first things you decide to do is find a way to contain the story. Movies like "Saw", 'Cabin Fever", "Evil Dead" and "Misery" show that you can have a very effective horror film with a minimum of locations. But setting your entire movie in a bedroom with two undead characters who don't really do anything but bicker is just plain lazy. It's about as scary as watching paint dry. Maybe that's the sequel to this one.
