Hello loyal readers. 3D is back for your weekly movie recommendation. Since it’s October, I thought I’d do horror movies for you until the end of the month. However, these will not be famous, popular horror movies. Nobody needs to be told how awesome those are. Instead, I’ll be recommending some stuff that you might not have heard of or given a chance.
I’ll start out with something at least a little familiar this week: an adaptation of a Stephen King book. “Desperation” was done for TV back in 2006, so if you’re worried about gore, you shouldn’t be. It is more of a spooky, psychological film.
I will admit the film is uneven and has some problems; however, I highly recommend it and I can tell you why in two words: Ron Perlman. I’m a Perlman fan in general, and he gives an inspired performance in this film. (On a side note, he’s also quite funny in the commentary track commenting on why so many of his roles require his face be covered in prothestics.)
In fact, the big problem with the film comes when his character in no longer on screen. Even then, you have the likes of Tom Skerritt and Charles Durning to carry the rest of the film. So, if you’re bored with all the horror movies you’ve seen over and over, why not give something new a try. I promise Perlman at least will not disappoint
