Since KOL, D.O. (do-over), Version 3.1, I lost my list of coming soon movie reviews. I keep trying to get Boulevard, but remembered Tusk being on my list. The DVD rental store had it and a quick perusal of the jacket indicated that one of my knights stars in this movie: Justin Long. The only other surprise was that I forgot it was not special day, got moded and had to pay full price!

I don’t remember if I recounted the emotional hangover over from extended celibacy, but this one movie’s twisted plot dictated a full palette for my fantastic mind thoughts. Despite the inhumane ending, I think the director may have been going for poetic justice, but failed, as a more humane decision by the critical three might have made more sense.

This movie was a bit creepy, even a bit comedic at points. I suppose I inadvertently prepared myself for a viewing of The Human Centipede.

Tragically horrific!
