Threw me into an existential crisis
on April 16, 2016
There are some movies that are so bad they're good. This isn't one of them.
I believe it was Nietzsche who said "And if thou gaze long into an abyss, the abyss will also gaze into thee."
Anyway, this movie was free on Prime and my daughter wanted to watch it. I already knew it was bad. I didn't realize how bad.
I know how this character got its start on YouTube. I've heard the first two movies are awful too. But, the reaction I've had to this movie was visceral. That voice alone is enough.
I turned it off. I told my daughter that under no circumstances is she allowed to watch anything with the word "Fred" in the title, or any variation of that name. Which is good, because I'm proactively putting the nix on Freddie Got Fingered, which, by comparison, is a better movie.
Existential crisis? Absolutely. Maybe more like existential/cosmic horror. Just as gazing upon Cthulhu would drive you insane, so will this.
If you do not heed my advice, may God have mercy on your soul.
