Curvy and Creepy

I would say that watching Paranormal Activity shortly before bedtime is one of the best ideas I've had in a while.

There's no better way to soothingly ease your way into your work week than to go to bed with your husband like normal in your scary, creaking, old apartment, having just watched a movie about a young couple going to bed like normal and being woken up night after night to be terrorized by a demon.

Derrick is uncharacteristically not as terrified as I am at the moment, but that probably has more to do with the fact that he missed about half of the film thanks to the unfortunate and inevitable accompaniment to day drinking: the evening hangover.

But before I go off on a tangent about how I'm not sure who among the two of us should be more embarrassed that I outdrank him at the Eagles-Falcons game, let me get back to this insane and amazing movie.  I have to wonder how a film that looks like any idiot with $400 and a bedroom could have made it ended up grossing $193 million at the box office.

I must come up with an idea for a low-budget scary movie soon - something that can yield totally ridunk returns.  Come to think of it, although he is extremely cute and fluffy - and "curvy," as they say on Say Yes To The Dress: Big, Franco can be pretty creepy when he just stares at you for a few minutes and then disappears for several hours (seriously, where does he go?  Our apartment is like 300 square feet!).

Check it out: 90 minutes of this guy looking into your soul and then just walking away.  I see nothing but dollar signs.


He killed that toy mouse just by looking at it.  
Will you survive Franco's death stare?

  1. Look at his funny little face! That mouse looks like something Franco coughed up.
