I've been looking forward to this one. Elijah Wood and Stephen McHattie? Yes please!
Rented this over the weekend and really enjoyed it. Within the first 5 minutes, I knew exactly where the movie was going. However, that twist is revealed well before the ending, so it didn't really hinder my enjoyment. The events following said twist turn the movie into a morbid and bloody fun cat-and-mouse thriller, so I was on board for that. Good cast, gorgeous visuals, and an incredibly macabre sense-of-humor.
Good stuff. Check it out!
Sorry but I'm gonna be the party pooper on this one too.
Thought this started really well but then it turned in a different direction and never recovered, I guess that was around the time the "horror" elements really appeared. It changed from being something a bit different with great potential to being cliched and completely predictable. I ended up just forwarding through the 2nd half.
Maybe I'm getting too fussy with these new horror flicks... I did really like Zombieland 2, The Fanatic and Doctor Sleep though, so I guess I'm not a complete "basket case" just yet.
Interesting, for me I was kind of bored with the first half, but once it changed direction I had fun with it, its nothing fantastic, but it was an enjoyable watch.
Caught this theatrically last night, which I ended up being the only one in the theatre, and had a blast! Canadian national treasure Stephen McHattie is just scathingly chewing his scenery for his screen time across from Elijah Wood's sad-sack Beverly Hills hipster and enjoyed how dark and unpleasant it remains throughout. Always love Michael Smiley and haven't seen him in anything in a while so that was a welcome surprise and he's definitely extra slimy here! It's definitely a smaller film - both cast, story, and location-wise - but everyone is perfectly cast and the settings fitting, including an old friend of mine from my neck of the woods who's been getting bigger and bigger roles after moving out West to pursue his acting career, so was nice to see my buddy Simon Chin as Dandy who
meets a pretty grisly demise in a macabre fight scene against Elijah.
Bonus points for Vinegar Syndrome's release of Star Virgin playing on the swinger's TV during the motel scene!
If you like your comedy pitch-black with a good dose of macabre, grisly thrills, then Come to Daddy is for you!
Bluray and DVD releases tomorrow 12.96 for DVD at Walmart not sure if they'll have the bluray in store.
This was fucking great. Watched it a few nights ago and it keeps popping back into my mind. I really enjoyed the dark humor in what is otherwise a drama in the first half. Then shit really hits the fan in the second half and it becomes more cat and mouse which was just as good. Highly recommended.
