DO YOU BELIVE IN GYPSY CURSES?, 28 Jun 2003
WELL DO YOU ?, Becouse after watching this it made me think twice.
The story follows Billy Haleck, a very overweight wealthy attorney with friends in high places(both inside and outside the law) and he comes to need both.
After having a dinner with friends Billy and his wife are travelling back home in their car when his wife decides to show him ways of taking his mind off food. This scene is worth watching not only becouse she exagerates certain things, but becouse it is were the movie really starts.
The night ends badly however when they end up runing over and killing a old gypsy mans daughter who is in town with their travelling fair, and when he goes to court his friends help to cover it up, so he not only gets away with it he dosn't even get a fine or points on his licence.
And so begins the curse, To make sure Billy carnt avoid the consequences of his actions, the old gypsy man places a curse on him that make him THINNER and then leaves town, Billy is delighted at first as the wight drops off very quickley, but soon realises that it isnt going to stop, EVER.
So then he begins a search for the gypsys to take it back off.
There are sub-plots involving his friends, and the ending it so good it makes you wonder why it takes so long to get there sometimes.
I loved the book when I read it years ago, and although the film is based around it I loved it anyway, It has all the main ingredients to keep you watching, And some pretty good special effects too.
A film about peoples actions and how a chain of events can start of with a simple accident and turn nasty.
All in all it is a top film, highly recomended by me and I will be doing so to all my other SK fan friends, and to everyone reading this, WHAT R U WATING 4 BUY IT NOW!!!!!!!!
