Francis Ford Coppola has proven himself as an auteur whose indelible mark has changed the face of storytelling in film. His influence can still be found today in many popular films and movies. Which leads me to ask, what the hell is this?
After watching this trailer for Twixt, I’m just not sure what Coppola’s intent is. Is he trying to strip Troll 2 of its best worst movie title? Not cool, man. Those Best Worst Movie guys already printed up all those posters! Anyway, check it out. It’s pretty weird. Val Kilmer plays a crappy horror writer investigating mysterious deaths in a small town, but the whole thing reads like it was produced by a teenager going through their Stephen King phase.
Now if you’ll excuse me, I’ve got a serious craving for a Twix.
