Karl Hungus has reminded me just how bad AVP: Requiem really is. The first AVP film was dire too, indeed the whole concept is nauseating, but this follow-up truly is gonorrhea for the senses.
There's one scene which sums the film up for me, frankly its a pile of arse. I'll set the scene. The ALFS have been going at it hammer and tongs for about 40 minutes already. Enter the cutesy teen couple having forbidden meetings in the school swimming pool...
"Are you looking at me, or the cock"
So we get a typical cheesy horror-film shot of a girls physique with some stupid dialogue. Fairly mundane cliched horror stuff there. A few seconds pass which include some staged osculation. The tension begins to build, we see some headlights appear (could the Predator be driving a Dodge Challenger?). If you were the film editor, how would you handle this shot? Would you put it together like this...
Yes but of course, show the girls arse again, and stay on it. Sure isn't that the most important thing when a bunch of thugs enter the picture. The tension is building somewhere else and the audience is being directed to a pair of buttocks. Let me add an analogy to this. Imagine your friend Bob was in New York on 9/11 when the Twin Towers came down, and he had his camera with him. You'd ask "hey Bob, did you get any interesting shots on 9/11?". To which he'd reply "I most certainly did!"
My advise to the Strauss Brothers: stick to bangbros.com
