Well just this thursday past I ended up with the night spare, as what I was meant to do fell through.
So anyway, I was about to go and catch a train when I saw a poster for Dying Breed.
I recalled that I’d previously seen the trailer for it at Saw V, and that I was interested.
I noticed that it had opened that very day and thus decided to go and see it.
A friend of mine was on his way in to the city, so I called him and informed I’d be sticking around longer due to going to see a movie, and he asked if he could tag along. I could see no issues as I don’t mind company, so I said yes.
To put this in perspective, this is a guy who doesn’t watch horror movies, who’s also fairly young.
So for him to agree to see one, I thought it would be interesting enough.
Eventually he met me near the cinema, we arranged tickets and had a snack.
And in to the movie we went.
This is one that didn’t follow the usual moves, no high body count or some highly obvious monster or anything like that, just a few people out in the middle of nowhere.
But suffice to say it made my friend scream and jump in to an adrenaline surge.
But kudos to him for staying for the entire thing, though at one point he came close to bolting and was a quivering heap for the rest of it.
It puts it in perspective that even though I watch such things to lol and for amusement, there are some people out there who turn in to puddles of jelly, like my friend.
Now I just need to show him some other fun movies, like Mirrors and so on, and see if he can grow a spine 😀
