I guess directors ARE people too and therefore they are liable to make mistakes. Sometimes the soundtrack isn't very good. Sometimes the plot isn't well written. Sometimes there are pointless characters and sub plots. Sometimes certain scenes won't make any sense. Sometimes things are too cheesy. Sometimes the special effects can be just plain bad. Sometimes they can choose bad actors. And, sometimes those bad actors can play two roles in the movie. But it's not often that a director makes ALL of those mistakes! Some people who haven't seen this movie yet might think I'm overreacting but I'm serious here, when I say "bad acting" I mean "TERRBILE"! It was horrendous! And it wasn't just Anne Carlise who sucked in this movie. Pretty much EVERYONE sucked. The only one I thought was HALF decent was Paula Sheppard. She had some good lines.
I think the scene were this movie is killed as dead as the expression of the ENTIRE cast (except Paula, at her best) was were Jimmy and Margaret have their big old dramatic fight scene and Jimmy calls Margaret "ugly" and "chicken" and because Margaret is so sad and dead inside from all the drugs and people who push her around she told Jimmy that he was the most beautiful boy and that he should have sex with her. Of course Jimmy is gay and didn't want but it was a fashion shoot and it's not often that a magazine can publish high glamour fellatio photos. Of course Jimmy has his orgasm, and what do you know, he disappears and Margaret has to tell everyone that she kills people by sleeping with them AND NO ONE DOES ANYTHING! Now, I'm an understanding person, I know that this is a cult film. I wasn't expecting GOLD here but I wasn't expecting this. The idea of aliens living off of orgasms is actually a pretty cool idea and the writing is KIND OF decent. I was thinking about it as I was watching this movie is SCREAMING for a remake. SCREAMING for something better to happen with it, maybe a decent actor or two (or one hundred), maybe some half decent special effects and a good soundtrack. I want this movie to be redone and switched up a little. Give the tired, bad remakes of old horror movies a break and do something interesting with the obscure and the underground. The movie has a great concept and awesome potential, but really, it just sucks the way it is... apart from those shoes.
