That was actually great.

There's no way the actual movie was anywhere close to as good as that.

Are those actually clips from the movie? *shivers*

All scenes are from the movie (yeah...), the song obviously not (yeah!).

Doesn't succeed on as many levels as The Thing: The Musical, which is stupendous in every way.

Well, that was pleasingly hateful whist resisting the temptation to be actually witty.

Whist? WHIST? Oh, I'm such a card.

Let me get this straight: there's a mainstream movie where someone bakes and serves their own shit, and this acts as the pivotal point in the plot?

For any additional plot spoilers, perhaps a link this this would be helpful.

What a fantastic abridgement.

I have not actually seen it (and don't really intend to), but that is my understanding, yeah? What mystifies me (and perhaps someone who has actually seen it can fill me in) is how (whether?) she actually gets away with it without any really serious consequences - I would imagine that if this had actually happened, the whole "mean lady got pranked good, put-upon maid wins, so there" thing would be briefly funny and satisfying but until shortly thereafter when said maid was found dead or something.

My housemate just let me know that there are folk magic and rootwork spells (not for the faint of heart) that center on this kind of thing (poop eating and poop magic), so perhaps not that far fetched after all.

I enjoyed that so much more than the actual movie.
