Wonkette's Weekly Top Ten Is Practically Perfect In Every Way
I've got some fun stuff for you guys this morning! Since it's October, we've got a little bit of a double feature of ... made-for-tv-horror-movie-sequels you probably did not know existed! This is a favorite genre of mine, especially when they star a bunch of people you would just never figure would all be in a movie together.
Like Bates Motel. No, not the TV show. The made-for-tv sequel to the Psycho movies that ignores all of the other sequels to the Psycho movies starring Bud Cort from Harold and Maude, Lori Petty and Jason Bateman. Yep, this is a thing that exists.

It's actually pretty darn good, and not just because I really, really enjoy the idea of Lori Petty and Bud Cort being in a movie together, which I do.
The other movie I have brought you this morning is Revenge of The Stepford Wives. Obviously, this is a sequel to the first The Stepford Wives movie. Apparently there were a few of them (The Stepford Children, The Stepford Husbands) but they just never really got their successful franchise on. I would imagine that Ira Levin was probably not involved with any of them.
Unlike Bates Motel, I haven't actually seen this, due to having just found out about it an hour ago, but hey, Julie Kavner and Mrs. Roper are in it, so I've got high hopes and plan to watch it when I am done for the day. Fun!
