Unexpectedly great!
11 March 2008 | by ham-sandwichSee all my reviews

Just saw the movie premier of "Otis" at the SXSW Film Festival in Austin. Reviewers are comparing it to "Juno" albeit a much darker version. The similarities are there even tho the story lines are vastly different. Initially what appears to be just another slasher movie takes a hard left turn about 10 minutes in. Wit, humor, contemporary hip dialog, and the perfect ensemble cast take over. Every actor will be recognizable from other movies even if their names are not household words with the exception of Otis. Otis, however, could not be more real or despicable! He is wonderfully evil, pathetic, and deranged yet still evokes sympathy from the audience. This movie is "ripe" for a sequel and will definitely have a cult following if it makes it into distribution. See this movie if you can! My friends call me Miss "Picky" for a reason and there was nothing to pick at in this movie. In fact, if you want a sure thing, see anything written by Erik Jendersen in my opinion the smartest of today's Hollywood writers. No dumbing down in any of his scripts.
