"Oh-my-gosh. They're-drag-ging-her-to-hell." *grin*

Oh, Alison Lohman's body double, you are a delight.

The body double is our longtime friend Abbie Cobb, who costarred with me in the first stage adaptation of "Toxic Avenger: The Musical." She's right in the middle of a stint on Beverly Hills 90210.

She sent the video to Dileep Rao, who played the psychic in Drag Me to Hell, and was recently a scientist in Avatar and the guy who drived the van into the river in Inception. His response:

"wow. I mean. Wow."

Drived? Jesus. The English language as remembered by Bunny.

No, he really did drived the van.

It's exciting.

I think my favorite part of this is that I still have no idea what happens in the movie.

He's not a lady. He just meets them.

I would watch Coco in anything. I'd happily watch a video where she stewed and ate my pets.

In case you're wondering, the film took about four hours and cost about $8 to pay for parking. For me and Coco, that's king of a big budget film.

Dang! That was better than I expected. Guess I gotta waste some more time watching that other stuff.....
srsly, good work!

I am a man. I hope that's okay!

I am so nerdy about this movie that I felt actual pangs of jealousy seeing someone else hold the prop button. I want to hold the prop button!

It's like sweding, except gooder.

I laughed 'til I cried. (Seriously, there are tears of laughter rolling down my cheeks.) This is COMEDY GOLD.

Is there any chance of more "Movies From Memory"? I could pitch in for parking money if it'll help!

Really, all we need are additional actual props from movies.
posted by Astro Zombie at 7:24 AM on February 7, 2011


Someone was surprised that someone else thought hermitosis wasn't a (tall) man????!?
posted by ostranenie at 7:35 AM on February 7, 2011


i always figured hermitosis for a man. a man with really bad breath.

I had a garlic bagel for lunch.

I like this version better, it's more realistic than the movie!
posted by P.o.B. at 11:55 AM on February 7, 2011


I also picked out some actual dialogue from the original movie, particularly "I'm Justin Long" and "That's stupid".

Awesome job.
