A Thousand Cuts
3 March 2013 | by tiptronic1881See all my reviews

From the start of this movie you see clips of a party. What caught me the most was the clown. What would the clown be doing in an accomplished directors' house?

OK so we move on, the party started. he is a not so swagger Casanova. He is walking around in different scene clips where he just doesn't make sense. Then the signing of the posters next to the pool. His manager/publicist has the worst British accent; but better yet is he coming out of the kids play house in the back after smoking pot and the girl wants his signature and the clown pops out again!!! CLASSIC

I'm not going too much into the story line cause its not that great.

It's official he needs rehab. But I digress. How do you invite someone in that wasn't at your party I don't give a sh_t who he says he is (WATCH THE NEWS). After that He finally finds out who the guy is FRANK and he's like :::Stupid::: let me check the internet, and Frank lets him. NOW YOU KNOW. So Jennifer Love Hewitt!

Horror movie bad I had seen is Frank getting tied to a kitchen chair that doesn't move. But frank pleads to cut him out if not bad things are going to happen. Blah Blah movie goes on...... Bad story line continues.

Alan gets double handcuffed to a coffee table which also does not move cause it seems to be bolted into the ground. But wait! Frank when saying he's going to do bad things brings his goodies bag and places it right next to Alan's feet so he can get to it. What the F!!!!

OK I can't speak any more of the bad editing that this movie had. But the best line to end was Frank getting stabbed and Alan says "What do you want," so he replies, "To really kill somebody."

The plot of this movie is actually interesting as it pulls on the tragedies that actual life goes through due to viewing movies. This is a big thing when letting your kids watch these kinds of genres of movies and becoming more aware of signs.

I watch horror movies have had since i was about 9 since the Krueger series started but I know things are becoming more realistic, hence doable. Please watch what your kids kids watch and not only that, make note to your other ones that don't know about them.

Be Safe, and happy watching.
