The 13 Whores of Halloween: Day V


PhotobucketJules (Anna Hutchison), The Cabin in the Woods
"Let's go Dare."

Does she ever. Poor doomed Jules - doomed by Miss Clairol, no less! In a movie stuffed with smart riffs on the horror genre I don't think any amuse me more than Jules' blonde hair-dye being laced with dumbing-down powder. (Maybe the blink-and-you'll-miss-it zap of electricity they give the knife?)

And Hutchison is really adorable in the role - "I learned it from watching you!" - which makes Jules' arc a hard watch, once you've seen the film a few times especially. And that's a good thing! It is accomplishing what the film wants to accomplish. The slaughter of innocents ain't no walk in the park. Nor is it a shimmy, no matter what Jules might say.
