Every now and then we come across a scene in a mainstream flick that feels as if it belongs in a horror flick. Of course as horror fans, it's natural for us to love these scenes and spread the word about them, and so here we are.
Running Scared is an underrated little crime thriller flick from 2006, starring Paul Walker and Vera Farmiga. It's about a small time hood that gets caught up in the drama of trying to find a gun used in a murder, and save a kids life on the process, blah, blah, blah. It's a great movie, but the plot isn't all that important for the purpose of our discussion.
What is relevant to this discussion, is a little sequence in the middle of the movie that involves... a modern day nod to Hansel and Gretel, only far darker.
|Now that is good stuff.|
We don't want to totally spoil the scene for those who haven't seen the movie, so we will say nothing more other than this movie is great on its own, but for horror fans, the apartment scene almost makes it feel classic in a way. There's a payoff to be had here too, which we really liked.
See it. There's a lot going on in this scene (and movie), and we think you'll like it.
|Eew. Eew, Eew, Eew!|
|It took us three times seeing this movie to finally realize that they "rated" the kids. What the rating means, we do not want to know.|
