Tonight I decided to do an old movie. A movie also discussed on the 18th Podcast. A movie called Wickerman. So sit back and enjoy the review Dreammachines.
Wickerman directed by Robin Hardy came out in 1973 starring Christopher Lee and a few other names. But I’m no name dropper plus I don’t think anyone would recognize the other people in this movie. The plot of this movie revolves around a police detective traveling to a small island to investigate a series of suspicious murders. I’m sure you can imagine what happens next on this small island. The plot line is notoriously thin but the atmosphere of the movie is fairly well developed for such a small budget film. This low budget film seems to embody the heart and soul of what similar low budget films of today have lost, the ability to rivet the audience no matter the cost of production. In my opinion low budget films today have lost the ability to pull the audience in to tell the story correctly.
Wickerman has all the frights and spooks to keep you going through the movie but don’t expect it to scare your socks off. The story should be enough to keep you entertained and hopefully give you a real dose of authentic storytelling. As for nightmares I would expect you to have an uneasy night but nothing to bad, probably just the dream where your naked in high school again. Well, well pizza got here early. Looks like a cold beer and a hot slice await me. Also a nice scary movie with some friends and a couple of drunken laughs should be good times. Till next Friday, Don’t screw with Jason’s weed man just don’t do it.
