Yet another post about a horror movie that’s really making me feel my age. Polaroid cameras were all the rage when I was growing up in the 80’s. For you youngsters out there, it was a camera that would instantly print out a pic after you took it – and then for added effect, you would shake the pic to make sure it came out right. Hence the term ‘Shake it like a Polaroid picture‘ from Outkast! So anyway, there’s a new horror movie called Polaroid:
WTF did I just watch? Ok (deep breath) – I get it. Horror movies are popular. And horror movies are relatively easy to make. But the more that crap like this gets put into actual theaters, the more that it stains the ‘horror movie; name in general. Nothing about this looks original (Goosebumps, anyone?), and from a technical standpoint it looks so awful that I’m finding myself wanting to rather stare at the jar of peanut butter on my desk instead of watching that trailer again.
But anyway – I’m sure Polaroid will make some money (key word ‘some’), and the studio will stand behind it. But me – I’m more interested in going onto eBay right now, buy an actual vintage Polaroid camera, and take pictures of that jar of peanut butter that’s on my desk.
