When they finally decide to report him to the police, he kills the two officers and is put in jail. But things go from bad to worse when the girls must answer to their Uncle Costello, a psychotic drug kingpin, who shows up looking for his missing merchandise which is hidden in the woods. Written by
It seems like the US will remake anything these days. I almost wish they use the subtitles from this movie for their script. Actually better not, because one comedy is enough. It's also what the director said before the screening started. He didn't see it as grim, but more as a fun movie. There's a different view on things. Unless those mentioned subtitles were not an accident, but supposed to sound ridiculous.
But it's not only those things that are more than weird. It's the story too. The main villainous guy is kinda funny, but underused. The father (a person of mixed morality, if you're being nice to the character) is plain bad and the girls don't seem to be able to act, if their lives depended on it (which coincidently it does).
The other reviewer (up to this point) must have been to another screening at Frightfest. Or was it another dimension? I couldn't tell, but I only heard negative feedback to this movie (apart from the woman that really asked that question at the Q&A but got the "appropriate" reaction from the crowd -> laughter and disbelief). I almost envy this person and wish I was there to experience the movie he has seen. It sounds great ... unfortunately the one I watched, wasn't.
