What's Your Dick Doing Over There Chuck?

Because I'm a horror writer and have a bit of web presence with this and some other bloggy sites, I occasionally hear from horror movie companies wondering if I'd be willing to check out and share feedback about an upcoming DVD horror release.

I've received some pretty cool and fun DVDs over the past 6 months, and they're fun to check out.

But this video clip from the forthcoming The Tooth Fairy had me in stitches. Okay, sure, I love dark humour, but these two "good old boy" characters are priceless, and of course, this movie will offer up the classic and unforgetable line: "What's your dick doing over there, Chuck?" -- it should far surpass such classic memorable lines as "Here's lookin' at you, kid." or "Frankly my dear, I don't give a damn."

For folks who have read any of my stories like "But Once A Year" or "Distractions" (both stories republished in One Hand Screaming) you'd likely recognize that I find mirth in horrific situations, or at least in the way that characters might react to a horrific situation. Psychologists might suggest that laughter is a release for tension and potentially a natural reaction to horror. I just can't help but think that sometimes a situation is so absurd that the character just has to react accordingly. Case in point, this clip from The Tooth Fairy.

This video clip contains, a red-neck pissing in the woods, violence and a slice of male nudity -- viewer discretion is advised.


Ameratis said... are right Mark...that line is classic! Of course Chuck should have answered "When ya gotta gotta go!" LoL

I saw the Tooth Fairy last year and I thought it was the scariest movie that I have ever seen and I told my son not to mistake it for a children's movie and show it to my grandson or he would never ever want to leave his tooth under a pillow again.

It's funny, but I didn't remember this part in the movie (your clip)...maybe it's only in the newer version.

Sorry... I got distracted by the title, now I'm going to actually read the post :)
