Dire-logue’s Greatest Hits Volume 11: Showdowns, killer wisdom, & piss-poor excuses to kill

Who doesn’t love a good exposition? Well, Jason and Michael for two, but in a mystery-slasher, everybody always wants to know why. Why? Why? Why?

Well, the answer you want is not always the answer you get… And conversely, anybody present at the climactic showdown scene is capable of talking utter, utter crap. Beware thy spoilers

Dire-logue’s Greatest Hits Volume 10: Stay calm, now…

“We all go a little mad sometimes,” so said one Norman Bates many, many moons ago. He wasn’t necessarily just speaking for “those of us” (but not me) who flip and start killing people, far more common is that many of us (this time including me) just flip and yell a lot…

THE DRILLER KILLER (1979): “I’ll tell you what you know about… You know to BITCH, and how to eat, and how to BITCH, and how to shit, and how to BITCH!”

Dire-logue’s Greatest Hits Volume 8: Nudge, wink

Oh, aren’t we sometimes just so clever with our little in-jokes and gags that you only get if you’re in on it?

Because so many horror films have been written to cater for people with double-digit IQs, many of these little pokes and winks at the audience are bloody obvious, and some of them are just crap. As always, regardé…

ALONE (2000): “So… you’ve got Freddy Krueger as an admirer?”

TO BECOME ONE (2000): “We’re playing this out like some B-grade movie. Five kids locked away in some isolated shack. When the killer finds us he’s going to pick us off one by one.”

What does this teach us? Sometimes, witty observations are funny. And that Kevin Williamson has a lot to answer for.
