Arty Rockabilly Zombie FLICK
14 April 2014 | by carrie-graham6See all my reviews

Watching Flick from a right-brained perspective…it is an interesting midnight movie. There are a lot of really cool motifs: teddy boys, zombies, comic books, taxidermy animals, prosthetics, detectives, and teenage love. It was a little like Peggy Sue Got Married meets Night of the Living Dead. It is intentionally cheesy like the Rocky Horror Picture Show. With a different frame-of-mind, it is more palatable.

There is a lot of homage paid to David Lynch in several scenes. Since I just finished (re)watching Twin Peaks a few days ago, I noticed that some of the set decorations on Flick were identical to Twin Peaks—metal, flying geese wall decorations (like at Shelly and Leo's house) and a wall decorated like a tropical sunset with fake palm fronds (like Dr. Jacoby's office). At the end of the film, there were silhouettes be- bopping to 1950's music like the end of Mulholland Drive.

Watching Flick like "eye candy" is the best way to distract from the disappointing plot and Faye Dunaway's ill-fitting performance as a one- handed, police detective from Memphis. But, it is worth tolerating. Richard Hawley's role as a pirate radio DJ who broadcasts from a boat moored in a dark shipyard was just awesome. Flick is worth the effort if you dig arty movies and Richard Hawley's music. But, check your head beforehand--it is a different type of movie.
