Had a dream last night that I was in a post-apocalyptic city. I was wandering around in the rain and mud, trying to find a place that was dry enough for my tent. A newscaster was talking about chemical explosions. I looked at my wallet and all of my personal identification was gone. Strange when dreams paint pictures of moods.
Okay, okay, okay. I just found out that my friend Melissa who is a Motion Picture Still Photographer worked on Drag Me To Hell. In fact, THAT'S HER SHOT THEY USED FOR THE POSTER!!! God, I want her job. She's worked with David Lynch, Meryl Streep, Sigourney Weaver, Jodie Foster, Hilary Swank. I met her in San Francisco in '92 when she was working on Copycat with Sigourney Weaver. They were shooting on Treasure Island and she took me to the set and showed me around. Yes, I'm a lucky girl. Go, Melissa!!
So I went to go see "Drag Me To Hell" with my mom. I asked her if she wanted to go see a horror movie and she said that anything would be better than sitting on the front porch. It was pretty extreme. I think she liked it. She definitely looked horrified. Personally, I thought it was brilliant. Sam Raimi is a master of horror. I laughed, I screamed, I got chills. And all for 50 cents. What can I say? Anything having to do with Sam Raimi, Quentin Tarantino or David Lynch and I'm there.
