MIFF Day 8 - 31st July 2002

As I have been away for a couple of days I only went and saw one film today from MIFF. The rest of the day I went to the Melbourne Museum and Space Station 3D IMAX.

I had already seen the first short, Seven Chocolates, but the next short Killing Pig was interesting. It was about some kids in a village who see their Dads butchering a pig and take to playing with knives and acting out - no one laughed (except for the cute cartoon it had at the start/end.)

The main feature Teenage Hooker Became Killing Machine in Daehakoh reminded me a lot of an Australian film called 'Houseboat Horror' (but the production values were lower on this film.)

The soundtrack was excellent and the film did seem to be a lot better when the music was going.

This is only the second film I've been two where I've seen people walking out (and the first time was due to language difficulties), so some people must have been offended by it.

I didn't think it was that bad, there was even a film joke in there for people who stuck with it. As long as you don't go into this film too high expectations you should be fine.
