Tuesday Couch Potato: The Lodger

For today's theme of Tuesday Couch Potato, i chose The Lodger coz this was the latest suspense thriller i have watched in years. As i've always say to my girlfriends who would invite me out for a suspense thriller film, i won't buy a ticket just to give me heart attack. For all the movies i watched in my entire life, i can count how many of them are suspense thriller. They are less than 5! :)

I've watched this movie with husband one friday night and i might have collapsed on some part of the movie (going to the comfort room helps a lot! LOL), i don't like scary, suspense thriller films, i don't like killings, bloods and screamings.. But i finished this movie after a couple of loud cries and hard slapping to husband to press the stop button already, i am that coward when it comes to suspense movies :) Whew. But for those who wants a great night of suspense, try to grab a copy.. aside from the bloody murders and twist of events the movie is mind boggling and somewhat funny :)

The Lodger summary:
Alfred Molina (Spider-Man 2), Hope Davis (About Schmidt), Shane West (The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen) and Simon Baker (TV's The Mentalist) star in this terrifying thriller. The Lodger follows a seasoned detective on the trail of a ruthless killer intent on slaughtering prostitutes along West Hollywood's Sunset Strip. It appears that the murderer's grisly methods are identical to that of London's infamous 19th century psychopath Jack the Ripper - a relentless serial killer who was never caught by police. To make matters worse, the detective soon notices the parallels between the crimes committed by the West Hollywood stalker and those of a serial murderer incarcerated years ago. Could the wrong man be behind bars? Also starring Rachael Leigh Cook (Nancy Drew). [D-Man2010]

Nah, I will pass...I don't like watching thriller, suspense or anything with regards to killing. Hubby loves this kind of movies, I stay with my romantic comedies, a little bit of fantasy and drama.
Rest Stop is one thing that I won't watch anymore, or Hills have Eyes. I didn't finish the movies, since I can't handle it anymore. Duwag kasi ako, saka mahina ako sa mga dugo..
