Emily Blunt's Interview w/Vince Vaughn
Vince Vaughn, Jennifer Lopez, and Vincent D'Onofrio

Vaughn as an FBI agent all suited up and proper looking? I'm
there! He's a honey glazed donut of a lad.
Cell is creep-o-rama central kiddies! You get a serial killer
to the tenth power, mind play, vicious torture, and basically
all the stuff good old fashion terror is made of. It's definitely
Hell Raiser meets Seven meets Naked Lunch.
Plus the killer in The Cell is 100% bone-a-fiddle psycho.
not a condoner of drugs (acid or mescaline) per say, but I imagine
the "inside the mind" scenes
in The Cell are a lot like tripping your head off at
a Bauhaus concert (wink-wink, nudge-nudge).
movie has some dragging unnecessary bits but it is a
horror movie not a classic film noir .
goes..... Psycho Man, Carl Stargher (Vincent "I'm so believable,
I hope I don't get typecast" D'Onofrio), has a taste for
sado/masochism. He finds thin attractive women puts them through
his madness, murders them horribly, and adds them to his Nefarious
Barbie human doll collection. Spooky or what?
Psychiatrist Catherine Deane (Jennifer "someone told me
black lipstick was becoming, no?" Lopez), is working
on inter active mind exploration. Primarily used in coma victims
to reach into their mind, meet, greet, and attempt to bring
them back to the real world. They explain it a little better.
the FBI guy Peter (Vince "remember to call, Emily Blunt
at 866-362-5868" Vaughn) catches Carl , The Dollmaker,
Carl has suffered an aneurysm -literally. He's in a coma!
bring his comatose mental case ass to Catherine's lab for assistance
because according to this demented creep's M.O. and his sick
video tapes of his ritual-like deeds, they figure his last female
abductee is still alive somewhere. The only way
to reach her is through him. As he's M.I.A. mentally they need
to use Catherine and her new technique to go deep into his twisted
mind! Shiver.They have to talk to him, via his brain waves.
Into the looking glass of mental terror Catherine leaps. Down...down..down.
It's a land Alice wouldn't be wondering about long! Carl
would have grabbed young Alice, stripped her naked , gutted
her lily white carcass and put her in a glass cell...er...
display case long before the hare could show up for tea.
movie's clever and visually stunning. Some of the scenes may
make you queasy- bring your MPB©
(Movie Puke Bag)
Vaughn is like six feet something of pure marinated man kebab!
Tall -n-lanky with those adorable little kissy lips.... I think
I need a Swingers fix. He's done lots of other things.
Not always the best choices. But hey, he's working and no one
on this side of the girl fence is complaining. Ya know what
'm a sayin? Check out indie Clay
Pigeons for another side o' Vaughn. He's terribly underrated.
D'Onofrio is not this sick looking. He's a stud muffin in real
life with a theater background that would make Ralph Fiennes
burn poker red with envy, or at least start orating loudly,
spewing Hamlet phrases at him in some thespian grudge
the kids at home for this one; way too disturbing and graphic.
Bravo to the people who dared to make this. It's got it's
bad moments-sure, but it's one hell of a adrenaline
rush the rest of the time. Terrifying..
Recommendation: Nadda- or you'll be hurlin!
