Nah, nothing I’ve heard of. I took a gander at the Wikipedia page and learned two things:
1. The production was pretty uneventful/Canadian.
2. I was mistaken: Shawn Ashmore is not in this movie. Shawn Ashmore’s identical twin brother Aaron is in this movie. I was not aware that he had a twin, and I’m going to be very upset if The Following never uses that to creepy effect.
Possibly you are thinking of The Conqueror, the disastrous Genghis Khan biopic that starred John Wayne? The movie was filmed downwind from nuclear testing before we were aware of exactly how bad that idea was and a startling percentage of the cast and crew were later diagnosed with cancer. That’s the only incident like that that I can think of off the top of my head.
If I can take a brief break in the whole horror movie love thing, can I tell you what still inexplicably grinds my gears? The Shrine.
I think what bothers me about it is that parts of it honestly did appeal to me. And they cocked it up. In many ways. The biggest way they cocked it up, though, is by making their story about the wrong thing in the story. Like, the actual story they went for is this:
Three reporters go to a remote Polish village that may or may not be connected to a series of disappearances, which may or may not be connected to a spooky church/a spooky shrine/a spooky lump of stationary fog/rad human sacrifice parties.
Which is the road MOST traveled through Horror Movie Land. Horror movies are full of desperate reporters who go to remote locations to investigate a rash of mysterious disappearances so that they can ~win the Pulitzer~ or whatever. You can’t keep those guys alive. You just can’t. In the Overused Horror Plot Olympics, “reporter investigates mysterious disappearances” would get the gold every time if “Hey, guys! Let’s go camping!” wasn’t in the running.
Not that it’s a bad thing, necessarily. It’s a perfectly good framework to hang your movie on, provided the threat is credible, the characters are enjoyable to watch, and the story is good. This plot’s been done well in the past and will be done well in the future.
The Shrine doesn’t do it well. Because the primary actress is not very good. Because her character is skin-crawlingly unlikable. Because her friends are less unlikable, but still moronic doormats. Because the story doesn’t really kick in until the last 15 minutes.
Spoilers for the end of the movie under the cut.
"Person of Interest" - Rewatch: S01E18 “Identity Crisis”
"Did you work an identity theft case?"
"Every arrest I ever made. They all say I got the wrong guy."
fuck I have seen this post on my dash at least 4 times today and it took me until just now to realize it was spongebob?? I wasnt reading the text before, and it took me a further 30 seconds to realize that was mr krabbs
This art is so good but spongebob human designs make me feel so strange like I am looking at this and Eugene Krabs is hot and Im not sure if thats something Im willing to accept
this is unholy and unnatural and shouldn’t be allowed to exist
There is no way Patrick would have the requisite hygiene to look like that.
I bet they all still have their cartoon voices
I swear on everything that this isn’t just some stupid contest to gain followers. I’ve been wanting a new camera for ages so now I have two. I was thinking about returning/selling my old one, but I wouldn’t be getting the same amount or more than what it was originally priced. I’ve already talked to my mum about me giving it away, and she doesn’t mind. Anyway, who doesn’t like free stuff?
Here’s how this will work:
- You do not have to follow me. I don’t want any followers that don’t actually like my blog. I do ask of you to kindly check out my blog though. If you like it cool, if not, then your loss.
- Likes do not count for anything, only reblogs will count. You can reblog this as many times as you’d like.
- Do not create any extra blogs or whatever, I will be looking on your archives.
- Winner will be chosen like as if it were a raffle drawing.
- Winner will be contacted via ask, so make sure that you have that on/open.
- This will be over on August 21st 2014, and the winner will be announced on the 22nd.
I am doing this basically to make someone else happy and also because I accidentally deleted the other contest I was doing. Please don’t participate if you already own a Canon, but you can if you’d like I guess. I really don’t care if you live in Hogwarts, anyone is allowed to enter.
Here’s what the winner will get:
- Canon EOS 1100D
- Camera Cover R-F-3
- Battery Charger LC-E10E
- EUR AC Cable 1m
- Battery pack LP-E10
- Battery cover
- Interface cable IFC-130U
- All the disks needed.
The camera is basically brand new.
If you think this is “stupid” of me to do or anything of that sort, than just ignore it. It’s that simple.
Q. “Why would you just giveaway an expensive camera to a stranger?”
A. TO MAKE THEM HAPPY!
Q. “How do we know you aren’t bullshitting us?”
A. To make a fake contest just for followers is stupid, plus, I have a picture of me holding both the cameras :)
7 QUESTIONS YOU SHOULD ASK AT THE END OF EVERY JOB INTERVIEW.
Click here to find out why these questions help you.
This is so important!
I never know what to ask and end up looking like a fool cause I don’t have a question prepared.
Don’t be me.
Another good thing to do is to use the opportunity to ask questions at the end as a way to turn the conversation in a direction where you can talk about your qualifications and experiences.
Always have questions for your job interviews. Come up with some beforehand. Come up with enough that you can comfortably ditch some questions if they happen to get answered naturally in the course of the interview. Write them all down on a notepad and bring it with you to the interview. You can also use it to take notes on pertinent info over the course of your interview.

That’s just it. I could’ve been just like you, a bottom-feeder who turns on his own kind. For what? Money, power? I got lucky. I had a partner. She was good for me. For a lot of reasons. She reminded me that I could be good again too. i could be a good father, a good friend. A good cop. I’m not gonna let you undo all the good she did. Carter saved my life. She—she saved me from myself. Because she believed in me. And I’m not gonna throw that away on a piece of crap like you. Patrick Simmons, you’re under arrest.
I once went to the Renaissance Fair dressed as Marty McFly, and nobody got the joke.
That will forever be one of the most disappointing moments in my life.
This is my favorite photoset rn
I totally get this guy. A whole fair of nerds and no one got a awesome 80s pop culture reference. Shame. The faces are amazing.
Whenever I come across people who say that Gimli/Legolas is a weird pairing because Gimli isn’t cute, I have a mental image of Legolas as Fleur Delacour telling them off. “I am good-looking enough for both of us, I theenk!”
