So this weekend I let @theguelphgirl drag me to the local movie house to watch a film based on a cheerily dark little tale she'd read not too long ago. This sad little tome bore the title The Lovely Bones and, I've been assured often enough to be curious, the book is better.
"I don't know who you are. I don't know what you want. If you are looking for ransom, I can tell you I don't have money. But what I do have are a very particular set of skills; skills I have acquired over a very long career. Skills that make me a nightmare for people like you. If you let my daughter go now, that'll be the end of it. I will not look for you, I will not pursue you. But if you don't, I will look for you, I will find you, and I will kill you."I dare you to not want to see this movie.
The basic premise of this movie is that a mysterious transmission blasting through the airwaves is picked up by televisions, cellphones and radios and turns your average, every day people into blood thirsty, psychotic killers. Admittedly, this movie does sound a little ridiculous, but give it time and it will surprisingly redeem itself.
