Where the Hell is Crispin Glover?
(March 16, 2003; Commentary by Val)
Where, indeed! Crispin Glover (in all his gothic glory) stars in the newly released Willard, a remake of the 1971 horror film of the same name. Had this movie starred anyone else, we would have passed it over without a second glance. But, Glover is just too wonderful of an actor to miss!
We're hoping to catch the movie on Saturday, March 22nd, so if you're interested in joining the group, drop me an email and we'll let you know the details.

Well, we saw the movie and, frankly, it wasn't enough to dedicate an entire movie review page to, so here goes a quick review:
Willard was a typical B-type of movie. It's only redeeming factor actually being Crispin Glover (as we originally anticipated). The rats were all very cute, expecially "Ben", the cat-sized rat whose jealousy over Willard's love for Socrates drives him to murder.
This movie had a very nice feel to it, but wasn't enough for me to really recommend (unless, of course, you *really* like Crispin and just wanna check out his hot gothic booty). LOL
