The title of this article “The Freaky Movie List” is based on an email I got a couple of days ago. Someone had sent me a copy of this movie which he called “A Cure for Everything.” Well, I must say that after spending the time to read the article, I have to say that it might be worth seeing just for the sake of “awkward sex scenes”. Anyway, I will get back to that in a minute.
The movie in question is called “The Freaky Movie.” It stars Michael Douglas and includes David Strathairn as a psychiatrist who runs a private clinic where he treats patients with various mental disorders. It’s not really too weird a movie as far as I can see, and I’m sure there are some people out there that will find the freaky aspect of it very disturbing. However, like I said, it’s not really all that disturbing. In fact, I kind of enjoy watching it.
I actually enjoyed the movie, but then again, I don’t really think that this kind of movie is going to be enjoyable for everyone. If you are someone who likes the macabre and the morbid then this is one of the better ones. I also think that the scenes were a little unnecessary. Sure the psychiatrist Dr. Melman (Michael Douglas) does an okay job of telling the patient that their loved ones are probably out of reach, but the rest of the film is pretty boring.
The other thing that I didn’t like about it was the ending. For a movie called “The Freaky Movie,” I think it is way more important to have a happy ending than a happy one. The end of The Freaky Movie pretty much sums up everything that the entire movie was about: fear, anxiety, and the exploration of the human psyche. So even if the beginning of the movie was great and a little scary, I felt like it could have been handled a little better.
Overall, I would say that The Freaky Movie is a definite must-see movie. It’s not only a great introduction to the ‘freaky’ genre, but it’s a great, fun, and entertaining movie. Plus, you get to see Michael Douglas and Bill Murray doing what they do best: making movies!
Also, there are two DVD sets available for The Freaky Movie. You can either go with the normal one or the Blu-ray collection. If you like the special features from the first movie, then you should definitely consider buying the second one. Either way, it will make you happy to have that extra disc just in case you miss the first one. It makes you happy just thinking about them.
