October Movie: Jack & Diane (2012)

I didn't get to this one last year so it is one of the first up this year.  Of course the question here is whether or not this is a monster/horror movie.  Yeah there are a lot of horror elements to this story and there are even some horror like scenes.  The movie is a touch slow, but it kept my attention. Partly because Riley Keough and Juno Temple are both fantastic actors. Partly because I was expecting some sort of monster reveal at the end. And partly because I was also was hoping to hear the John Mellencamp song.  Didn't happen.

It was a fun movie and if you like a psychological type of horror where the monsters are mostly metaphorical.

Tally: Watched 2,  New 2

I thought it was alright, if a bit on the tedious side, but not really anything to write home about either way.

Have you seen American Mary?

I haven't seen it yet, but it is on my list, just a little further down.

I haven't seen this one, but I've considered it before. I guess I should go ahead and check it out.
