9 times out of 10 horror or scary movies, just
don't scare me...
Movies on the other hand that are subtle and
less up front about their content scare me more
where it's left for you to think what happens.
I find them more effective. Anyone agree here?
Anyway onto the offending film.
It was a movie called "The Lottery" and the
premise of the movie is that there is this
small town in middle America where they have
an annual lottery and the person that gets that
one special ticket has the "treat" of the whole
town stoning them to death. The problem with
this premise being that a newcomer comes to
this town and finds the grave of his mother
and several other people.
The catch is that the dates on all the headstones
were the same date and we even get to see him
being almost forced into this town's ritual as
they all gather at the lottery drawing. He
arrived during the lottery period.
Anyway they show us the effects almost entrely
of the stoning by having a lady cast as the
unhappy victim and even show her being stoned,
first knocked to the ground by a hit to the
head, then a succession of other stones all
over her body.
That was right near the end of the movie too.
He escapes the town only to bring back a
isbelieving state trooper and other official
but can't prove anything. The movie ends with
him back in this office outside of the town
and a doctor interviewing him. Then you hear
a strange voice in the background say "never
tell him the truth".....
The movie then ends.
