Jason and Shawn review: Choose and Dead Hooker in a Trunk


Jason: Or, as I like to call it, an excuse to stare at Katheryn Winnick's chest for 90 minutes. Or Katheryn Winnick in general. This is a disposal horror thriller. It's like Saw or Scream, only not as clever. I spent more time playing on my iPad and chatting with Mike S on Twitter than I did paying attention to this movie. That pretty much tells you everything you need to know about Choose. I can't give this an Ugly because then it'd be a slight against Katheryn Winnick. But, if you want to perv on her in a good movie check out Satan's Little Helper. Otherwise this is just Bad.

Shawn: Pretty decent start to a movie. Got me looking. Speaking of looking: hot blonde in a shower scene! Still looking!! No boobs :(. Interest fading. Hey, investigative reporter seeking serial killer with links to her own family? Sounds all too familiar. Girl with the Terrible Boobies ring a bell!?! You know what, at least I saw boobs in that movie. This is another borefest cheesy story with a lame twist. All in all, a PG version of the suckjob that is Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. There, I said it. Because this movie made me give the other movie a little more respect. BoooUgly!

Dead Hooker in a Trunk

Jason: Not only is Dead Hooker in a Trunk the best title for a movie ever, but it's one of the best first films/low budget efforts I've ever seen. Yes, this movie is ridiculous, but it's supposed to be. It's a grindhouse version of Scooby Doo only without someone saying “I'd have gotten away with it too if it wasn't for you meddling kids.” Props to Jen and Sylvia Soska. Not only did they write and direct this, but they starred in it and they did their own stunts. It can't be easy getting dragged behind a horse.This film has a heart and a soul and is a lot of fun. Aspiring filmmakers need to see it. Dead Hooker rates a Good, and I want to show it to all my movie geek friends!

Shawn: Dead hooker. In a trunk. Where else would you find one? This movie does with a low budget what only big budget movies wish they could do. And chainsaw a person! You showed me what you could, and I appreciate that. Everyone needs a friend that will knock out a trucker that just tore your arm off with his truck, then retrieve your arm for you. That's so sweet! Low budget movie fans, FUCK YEAH! This movie is goodness. It's disturbing, showed what it could, and they did a pretty damn good job! "Like dying could kill me." Bravo. I'll be watching it again. Good!
