Celluloid #145

In Theaters

Wanderlust (2012) Wain - A New York couple finds themselves priced out of the city. Initially, they decide to move in with George's brother in Atlanta, but along the way they stay the night in a B&B that turns out to be a commune. They wake up to a digeridoo and a party, but their initial annoyance turns into enjoyment. There are some funny parts in the movie, but I didn't think it was as good as the other Wain movies I have seen (Wet Hot American Summer, Role Models). I enjoyed seeing Jennifer Aniston and Lauren Ambrose play these comic characters. Other than the lack of some serious laughs, my only complaint is that the ending is way too tidy for my tastes. 3.5/5

In Home

the Invisible Man (1933) Whale - A scientist looks to make a discovery leading to fame.. After years of research, he manages to turn himself invisible. Unfortunately, one side effect seems to be that he becomes quite mad and power crazy. He has little issue with killing anyone who stands in his way. I loved the old school effects. 4/5

Slumber Party Massacre (1982) Jones - Exactly what you would imagine: Some high school girls have a slumber party, engage in various levels of drugs or sex and are soon attacked by a murderer on the loose. 4/5
