While I was working on Spike's Spike, a late-night movie was broadcasted on the television. And I watched it while writing the story, and it was one of the most random, hilarious, utterly nonsensical movies I have ever seen.
The movie was called "Mom", a 1980s/early 1990s flick about a 70 year old-something mother becoming a Vampire.
Yeah, I'm serious. And here's the kicker: the movie was meant as a serious drama/horror. But as we all know a movie about a Vampire Grandma could only come off as a comedy. Trust me. It was.
"Mom" is literally one of the most bizarre films I have ever seen (I have seen A LOT of films). But I must admit that it is AN EXPERIENCE! I would recommend this film to anyone just to allow them the opportunity to experience a piece of cinematic history that attempted to be recognized as serious artwork.
So how about I give you a tiny review? Then you can hit the Internet and check it out for yourself.
Okay, so the movie starts off on Chistmas Eve. There is this woman sitting at some random bus-stop/ rest-stop/ gas station / "hey, let's place a den in the middle of nowhere", and she offers this bottle of liquor to a bald, sunglasses-wearing guy in all black standing ominously in the corner. Oh, and it's around 11 p.m. at night, so, yeah, the guy DEFINITELY doesn't appear shady in any way. *cough* Anyway, the guy ignores the girl, and she keeps pestering him to take a drink. By her words "It's Chistmas Eve, after all. I'm just offering a drink.". The guy finally gets sick of her annoying pestering, so he walks right up to her, grabs her by the neck, drags her to the middle of the desert, rips off her clothes and sinks his teeth into the bratty woman.
Then comes the opening sequence. I kid you not, the movie was trying to come off as an Oscar contender. The title credits just gives you that feel.
Anyway, we meet the "Mom" of the movie. She is this old woman who ends up getting turned into a Vampire by the "sunglasses-wearing guy", and she is trained by him to feed on the humans.
Throughout the film the son of the Vampire Grandma tries to tie her up her room, trying to figure out what to do. The poor guy has no idea, and random people (police officer, homeless people, prostitute, daughter, etc.) just get eaten up by the Old Bag.
The movie has transformations, so the Old Woman becomes this "Monstsr-looking thing" complete with make-up and everything.
The entire movie is a laugh-fest, filled with so many inconsistencies, flaws, and WTF moments that you just have to check this movie out. I seriously enjoyed it as a comedy, even though it tried to come off as dramatic thriller/horror.
The movie has blood, boobs, guns and explosions. All because of this Grandma Vampire.
So watch out!
What are some hilariously bizarre movies you have seen?
