Dreamcatcher (2003) – Filmsack Show Notes

INTRO

Oh hi,

Greetings human, I am Dudley Duddits of the  Space Mounties and I am in pursuit of Donnie Duddits. He’s….uh…how do you humans say…special?

Apparently, he has emotionally attached himself to a cartoon dog with a speech impediment and hopes to endear himself to you humans by taking on these properties. Wow, this is more complicated than necessary.

Anywho, have you encountered such a being?

Also, did you know, it’s butt weasel season? Be sure to cover your orifices human.

Coincidently, we have been monitoring your people…and I have a friendly bet going with the crew.

if it is bestiality when a human attempts to mate with an animal…gross by the way…is it then called me-stiality when one attempts to please oneself? The Galaxy wants to know.

Geez, how much Oxy and Day time TV was King watching when he wrote this. Kiss my bender.

How heavy are manhole covers?

I can understand that big eel weasel getting int he water and causing problems. But that little jiggly worm would prolly get eet.

So the alien was inside…but is a mist? that can become solid? or did it come out of his butthole? or did the mist come from his butthole?

I want to dress as Duds for Halloween.

The Shining (1980) – Filmsack Show Notes

INTRO:

Oh no. It’s happening. it’s happening. it’s The Sackening!

oh hi, The little man who lives in my butt is back. He’s telling me about this week’s movie. Oh….By the way, I’ve never watched a FilmSack movie in my life. I just say what my butt goblin Toby tells me.

What’s that Toby? Ok, I’ll tell them:

He says:  Poor old Head Chef Scatman was just trying to enjoy some well deserved rest in his bachelor pad down in Miami. Then that white boy invaded his headspace with his “Shining.”

And, what does Scatman do? (hehe…Scatman Doo)…

Scatman do hop a plane, take a cab, rent a Snow Cat, brave a Blizzard and wander the halls of the Overlook hotel. His reward? An axe wound to the chest.

Scatman should have stayed in bed… maybe spent a little more time starring at his sweet foxxy mama posters. Ahhh yeah…that is some sweet chocolate candy there.

Thank you Toby for your insight.

Wow, It’s almost like I pulled that intro out of my butt!

Book “The Wish Child”

Germany, 1939. Two children watch as their parents become immersed in the puzzling mechanisms of power.

“A Month Later”

We got this whole hotel. I’m going to make use of the food cart!

Big Wheel!!

That thing makes a horrible noise on the hardwood floors…then carpet…then floor…then carpet…DANNY! I bet that was tough following him around with a camera.

A month in and he is still getting breakfast in bed…that shit would have ended the first week.

Scott is grossed out by dipping bacon in runny yolks.

“You did real good keeping the place straight…but who the hell put all them ball marks on the wall? and what the hell…on the ceiling!”

The Overlook Maze sure has a lot of lights?

What would you do if you have a gigantic hotel to roam?

  • I would sleep in a different room every night and never make up the bed.

He is the master of puppets looking over the maze…cool transition from model to overhead shot.

“Tuesday” – Bonk!

talking about 1968 shooting…missing lady with her husband…fore shading?

No room 237…no!

This kid is a great actor…or perhaps Kubrick is a great director…or maybe both.

You can just feel Shelley Duvall coming to wreck is day with her bubbli-ness.

Shelley Duvall telling me not to be grouchy would make me grouchy.

You are distracting me!

“Thursday” – No fanfare

The Tea Kettle noise indicates the shining in Danny and his father’s case.

“Saturday” – The shining bleeds in.

The Shining…brought to you by 7up

Over…Over…this conversation is dumb…over.

Danny…come play with us…forever and ever…also, this is the wing that has the really shitty wallpaper.

It’s just like Peaches in the book?

“Monday” no fanfare

What is Danny & his mom watching in the lobby? It’s a lot of coffee talk….I mean a lot of coffee talk. Right before lunch…but dad is still sleeping and Danny wants his fire truck! Don’t…wake…Daddy…now that is scary..

Oh hi dad! It looks like you are awake!

The worst…the abusive dad…who shows you some attention…

Echo’s of the twins…I wish we could stay here forever and ever…

Danny is asking the hard questions. “You wouldn’t hurt me and mommy would you?”

“Wendnesday” cymbals crash

Pink and blue and green was a popular color for toys in Danny’s collection.

Danny has an Apollo sweater on…crocheted…did his mom knit that? Is he going to the moon?

Who da hell opened 237!!

So Dad has just become totally useless now…so mom has to go do all the work in the dirty overalls.

Jack Torrance is having day terrors!

Grote…Jack had some slobbering going on.

Damnit Wendy! I told you not to come in here when I am screaming!

Most horrible dream he has ever had.

Wendy’s comfort is even unbearable

 

Dreaming of killing your family…and chopping them up…might want to keep that to yourself.

Wendy is surrounded by crazy.

Danny is sucking his thumb and has neck abrasions.

What? I did’t do nuffin.

The walk of crazy…slashing in the air…

The bartender who is not there…or a ghost…how about a robot? Passengers?

uh oh…he sold his soul right there at the bar….would give  his soul for a glass of beer. Lloyd…

2  20s in his pocket. Nope

White Man’s Burden.

He said 5 miserable months on the wagon…but that doesn’t jive if he was at 5 months at closing according to Wendy. It’s been at least a month or more at the hotel.

Jack still maintains he would never hurt Danny…and is convinced that Wendy will never forgive him. But he can’t forgive himself. 3 years ago….after Danny threw his papers all over the floor.

Jack is twitchy…

via GIPHY

What is Wendy running from?

Jack goes to sleep like Danny when he talks to Lloyd.

Wendy saw a lady try to strangle Danny.

Channel 10 in Miami…and some Chef feet. Maybe gross for Scott?

Chef has a luxurious lady with a boufant hairdo over the TV and another one over his bed. Yeah he is single. Meanwhile back in Colorado…bad weather…

Halloran is having a moment in room 237 thanks to Danny’s call out powers…more drool

Those Chicago people who came in and decorated have horrible taste in colors

or is that just room 237

Naked lady in the tub! Hot damn says Jack! Man she is tall. Pretty tame bush for early 80s

Slow motion naked lady is just what Jack ordered.

That bathroom has no toilet paper.

Would you let a fairly attractive naked lady touch you and kiss you in a bathroom.

I thought those sores were tattoos at first.

That old lady has been doing some lady ‘scaping down there.

How many numbers you going to dial Scatman?

Wendy snorts when she cries

Ahh come on Jack…you don’t want to tell your wife about making out with the old lady shape shifter?

So is the lady is 237 the crazy man’s wife? She looks too old for that. Is she another lady?

Maybe Danny did it to himself? yeah..that’s it!

Danny is silent screaming.

Shoveling out Driveways…Working at the carwash…are those his only other qualifications?

Damnit Wendy….you screw up everything.

He is tearing through the kitchen…you think Scatman is going to clean that up?  Hell nah.

Navajo artwork on the walls and ballons in the halls

I’m the chef at the Overlook Hotel…and I need to talk to the Hotel! He did bring it around to relevance by saying his worry was about them starving to death…LIKE THE DONNOR PARTY!

We are implying a party during the 20s…they heyday of the hotel perhaps?

Hair of the dog that bit me…Burbon on the rocks.

No charge? My money is no good eh? Orders from the house, huh?

Who is buying my drinks Lloyd? Who’s the puppet master? Doesn’t matter yet Jack.

What was the waiter serving? Advocaat? It stains…is it made of jizz? cause I just wiped mine off on you Jeeves.

Red bathroom is red.

Delbert Grady was the first caretaker at the Overlook under Ullman’s management, in the winter of 1970-71. Like Jack, he was an alcoholic. Also like Jack, he tries to murder his family – a wife and two young daughters. Unlike Jack, he succeeds.

I know who you are Mr. Grady

This is my house Jack!

There is about to be a Caretaker Battle in the Red Room

Jack has always been the caretaker according to 20s Grady.

Grady reveals Danny is trying to bring in the chef…and they said the N word 3 times in a row! That in a bathroom…that is sure to summon Candyman.

Grady reveals that Danny has a great talent.

Danny is a very willful boy.

Jack blames Wendy for interfering with his will.

One of Grady’s kids tried to burn down something…then Grady “corrected” them.

 

Who really unlocked the door? Was it Danny/Tony since Danny was in a trance at the time? Or was it the spirit of Grady?

Mirroring is prominent in this movie…from Redrum (murder) to shots in mirrors..to Danny mirroring his father?

You would think they would take all the axes with them during Winter break

Damn tiny bathroom windows….give me a full window please!

What Kubrick had to say on The Shining: http://www.visual-memory.co.uk/amk/doc/interview.ts.html

Dick was on his bed minding his own business in Miami…watching TV and being turned on  by his 70s wall hangings of foxxy ladies. When he gets a person to person head call from the white kid in the cold snowy mountain.  He then places a call to the mountain Rangers. Hops a plane. Rents a car. Calls in a favor to get a snow cat. Braves a blizzard. Walks the halls of a huge hotel. Takes an axe to the chest. Dies. Should have stayed in bed.

Theory: Danny transfers his conscience into Dick and rides his body all the way back to the hotel.  When Danny contacts Dick; Tony occupies Danny’s body until Dick arrives at the hotel and is axed. At which time Jack starts calling for Danny and he takes off.

 

Thinner (1996) : Filmsack – Notes

Thinner (1996)

Intro:

Oh hey!

When I heard we were doing another Stephen King movie for Filmsack I got pretty excited!

Needless to say I was in a hurry to get home Friday.

So  I stopped by 7-Eleven and picked up some Chicken tenders and grabbed a couple of scratchers.

Then on the way out the door I pulled out a quarter and started scratching!

That’s when I  accidentally bumped into an old Gypsy woman.

She said  for a quarter she could tell me my fortune and pull up her skirt.

I said “I’ll take the fortune grandma, but I’m not interested in seeing your man cave.”

So she snatched my quarter and grabbed me by my skroat & whispered

…”Winner Winner, Chicken Thinner.” …

I was all like! “Holy crap! How did you know that?”

She leaned in real close and whispered “I follow you on twitter white man from internet.”

Turns out she was just a bag lady with broadband.

Maximum Overdrive (Show Notes)

*WARNING : My show notes are unrated. I do not censor my thoughts while making notes.

Listen Now

Released: 1986 Runtime:  97 min Rated R

Maximum Overdrive is a 1986 American horror film directed by Stephen King.[3] The film stars Emilio EstevezPat HingleLaura Harrington and Yeardley Smith. The screenplay was inspired by and loosely based on King’s short story Trucks, which was included in King’s first collection of short stories, Night Shift.

Maximum Overdrive is Stephen King’s only directorial effort, though dozens of films have been based on King’s novels. The film contained black humor elements and a generally campy tone, which contrasts with King’s sombre subject matter in books. The film has a mid-1980s hard rock soundtrack composed entirely by the group AC/DC, Stephen King’s favorite band. AC/DC’s album Who Made Who, was released as the Maximum Overdrive soundtrack. It includes the best-selling singles “Who Made Who“, “You Shook Me All Night Long“, and “Hells Bells“.

Opener:

Hey Scott, I was looking at the Filmsack timecards when I clocked in this morning…and I noticed that some of the cards had stars on them. So I was assuming it was because of my good performance. Then I noticed Ibbott had 2 stars. whats up?

Wait, holdup. You want me to work for 9 hours and only get paid for 8? What am I; Salary!

You remember that scene on the bridge with the Watermelons falling down on the cars? it was all like…aaaaahhh…watermelons. Well Yeah…that was a  metaphor.  A metaphor For Stephen King being coked out of his head while making this movie.

I got this whole truck load of watermelons!

Twitter:  Maximum Overdrive  – more Reeks than an episode of Game Of Thrones.  Can’t you see we got a situation here?

Like watching a movie directed by someone who was coked out of his mind. No wait…that was exactly what we watch. Twitter retraction.

 

Stuff I Loved: Where dey at now? – Emilio Estevez (chubby) Yeardly Smith (sp) – Lisa

On June 19th, 1987, at 9:47 A.M. EST, the Earth passed into the extraordinarily diffuse tail of Rhea-M, a rogue comet. According to astronomical calculation, the planet would remain in the tail of the comet for the next eight days, five hours, twenty-nine minutes, and twenty-three seconds. 1987 was in the future at the release of this movie in ’86

Happy Toys…that in’t no kid’s toy truck…if you know what I mean and you do…because I hear you laughing.

Andy’s mom is a dog? Oh Son of a Bitch

Well let me just take a look down the pipe hole of this gas hose.

Is that all? Flush his eyes.

Wait…I ain’t too smart…you want me to work for 9 hours and only clock in for 8. C’mon…is that really the worst thing…

Barbara June should not be allowed near the griddle.  No Barbara June that is not how you make flapjacks.

Look at all them stars. Everbody here is a convict!

Most grating noise ever…reek reek reek reek

Let me just tap this quarter on the floor before I make my great escape from the arcade of death.

This weeks Old School Pick is Star Castle

  • Star Castle was featured in the 1982 movie Fast Times at Ridgemont High.
  • Star Castle can be seen in the 1982 movie Rocky III. In an opening scene where Paulie is walking in an arcade, a girl can be seen playing Star Castle.

C’mon everybody…I’m buying the soda…no I mean it…1 soda. we got to share apparently cause all I got is 50 cent.

Death by coin operated machines.

Bystander levels of understanding what they are seeing: The first can to the crotch is funny. Can to the head..Getting less funny…oh shit. RUN!

Trucks, industrial equipment, coin operated machines, yard and kitchen appliances. Fuck cars…we don’t possess those.

Are you on something? Worst North Carolina Accents ever.

EAT MY SHORTS!? Did Yeardly bring that from this movie to the Simpsons…Nope…Judd Nelson said it in the Breakfast Club…maybe Emilio heard it.

Curtis…is he dead?

I don’t think that Truck wants to talk to you.

Curtis…are you dead?

Why does the truck attacking Curtis sound like a Impact drill when it starts up? Sound like a Nascar pit crew ?

Nobody wants a green goblin in a box.

Jerk in the box is more like it.

Load of Joy? told you that wasn’t no kids toys truck

Just gonna kneel right here behind this truck.

You’re cute….Emilio laugh..

Who has the best hollywood laugh?

Nothing at 10:15 in the morning.

That poor dog. How did it get the toy cop car in his mouth.

Great long shot of the Ice Cream truck coming  down the street.

My-T Tas-T –

Is it playing. King of the Road? Trailer for sale or rent?

Let me sell you a bible. Now wait…let me tell you what’s in it.

How many fingers do you see….8…12…

Bubba is really trying to keep salary under control so he can keep grits prices down

Bubba is not really a real bad guy c’mon.

Didn’t even make it out of the parking lot.

RUN WE HATE CARS!

Smash and trash.

I’m gonna tear them off boy!! Stephen King is obsessed with skroat abuse in his stories. Chopper, Sick Balls. Alright…maybe I only have 2 examples. But I need a reason to say Skroat

Death by bumping. Bible salesmen…am I right!

Horse Puckey

I got Dead salesmen on me. Boo hoo

Hey…we are trucks….we can’t even pump our own fuel…let’s drive around in a circle for no apparent reason…oh wait…I see why. PRODUCT PLACEMENT!!

Man I wish my name wasn’t Curtis

This was during a period of filmmaking when the character had to say the thing that was happening on screen..in case it wasn’t obvious.

Curtis’ car…top speed…70MPH?

When a truck leaves the highway it bursts into flames. Everyone knows that the only reason trucks do not burst into flames is because they are attached to the road.

More Reeks than an episode of Game Of Thrones

DeLarentis!

Always time for love making in horror movies. Cause nothing makes you hornier than a bunch of trucks trying to kill you.

What the hell was Emilio eating off that girls head?

Juke Box of Christ. Last supper.

The whole damn world has gone tits up.

We made them. You can’t! WE MADE YOU! Alright…calm down.

Horn of disapproval.

I like spoons.

I am not comfortable with Lisa Simpson making out at a greasy spoon

I  hate those fucking trucks. I never did like trucks anyway.

You got a bible salesman in your ditch.

I didn’t sign on to be no hero. – in your best southern accent.

Crazy as a couple of rats in a plugged up shit house.

C’mon…For those about to rock…we salute you…

Something else The Trek Nerd and Emilio have in common…they both have tasted urine. What was the first thing?

Trope: Dead people will lie perfectly still while you check them out and then pop up at you when you try to leave.

The road twitch?

Uh oh. The Trucks just got organised.

Wanda is a loose cannon…and she really can not come to grips with the who made who thing.

He got a Merrit badge in Morse Code

Like a junkie trying to run down his connection

Great use of AC/DC

Did we really need to watch Billy wrestle with a gas truck fueling hose? for a full minute!

Gun truck is watching you

Red rag dab to wipe the Emilio sweat away

Interstellar house cleaners. Broom.

Ass in the air!

Truck-a-side. The humans have betrayed us!

In truck we trust

Humans here. Down at the Burger Lean

Coked out King

If this movie taught me anything…it’s that trucks are highly explosive.

I feel like I just got hit by a 15 pound sausage hand of stephen king backed by AC/DC

Two days after, a large UFO was destroyed in space by a Russian “weather satellite,” which happened to be equipped with a laser cannon and class IV nuclear missles.
Approximately six days later, the earth passed beyond the tail of Rhea-M, exactly as predicted.
The survivors of The Dixie Boy are still survivors.
