  • So: Amazon…did you see they’re doing a two-for-one horror sale? I don’t know about you, but some of these aren’t bad, especially the Ultimate Edition of Dawn of the Dead (must-own, I’m serious about that–classic trailer here), which is the most expensive must-own on there. You can pair that and get Day of the Dead (Japanese trailer here) for free, Demons (previously mentioned and with trailers here) for free, or the Evil Dead 2: Dead By Dawn Book of the Dead edition for free. Anyway, regardless, lots of good titles on there. FYI.

    My Advice: Rent it.

    Dexter King’s (Goldblum) life is at a low point. He’s been the suffering barely-noticed straight man to the egomaniacal comic Ron Anderson (Atkinson) for over six years; he’s been dating a succession of increasing insane women, and his hay fever has reached Category 5 strength. The cure is a series of injections, and his fear of needles is overcome by his fascination with the lovely nurse Kate Lemmon (Thompson) administering them. Because of or despite his inept and idiotic attempts to get a date, Kate takes pity on him and decides to give him a go. After having the most destructive sex they’ve ever experienced, they become a couple. With romantic success comes professional success: he’s just been cast as the lead in the new musical based on the life of John Merrick, the “Elephant Man.” Will Dexter screw up his big chance, will Kate forgive him if he does, and what is with the singing underwear?
