Bones -Movie Review
I am blogging about it because I don't know what category to put it under.
It starts off with a strong storyline, bad neighbourhood with a crazy guy holding a 20 year old secret. Then brings in some fresh kids with a ton of cash and ideas to turn an old building into a club. We are introduced via flashbacks to the the character of Jimmy Bones (Snoop Dogg) and his former girlfriend (Pam Grier) who happens to be a Psychic. Add two more horror scream queens (Katharine Isabelle from the Ginger Snaps trilogy and Bianca Lawson from season 2 of Buffy) and you should have a good solid horror. But you don't.
Midway it becomes a bad spoof comedy.
If this film had just stuck to being a straight up 70's Blaxploitation film it would have worked much better.
I will be having issues sleeping and eating for the next week or so because of the many scenes with maggots throughout this film.
