I used to love Neve Campbell and I used to love Denise Richards when I was younger – in fact, if they’re reading, I still do. Ladies, you can come round my yard and we’ll watch The Fly – to get you in the mood for teleporting to a higher plane of ecstasy, obviously – then we can have some Super Noodles and see where it goes from there. Anyway, even if this never happens (it will), at least I still have Wild Things.
The first time I watched this, it was on recommendation by a mate, so a few of us sat down to watch it at my friend’s house. We started from the beginning, and I was really enjoying it – THEN WE GOT TO THAT SCENE – and…my friend turned it off and said:
“Cool, so what do you wanna do now?”
Now, I saw his reasoning – yeah, we’d got to the best part, but I fucking wanted to know what happened! So I persuaded him to watch the rest and we all sat back down again. It was, and is, awesome. Obviously, the best part is THAT BIT, but the rest is actually genuinely good. In case you don’t know, Wild Things is about these two girls who basically fuck-up the lives of a police detective and a high-school guidance counsellor – all whilst being very peng.
There’s enough twists and turns in this to fill a month of waterslides, and it’ll have you second-guessing every ten minutes – it’s a spot-on, sleazy, sexy B-movie with a big budget and big-name actors. I well like it.
Also, THAT FUCKING SCENE. IT MADE MY SILLY SAUSAGE GO WINKY PINKY POOOOOOO.
It’s on TCM at 12.50am. Watch it, but make sure you watch all of it. Also, make sure you follow me on Twitter or some shit – @ionlywatch18s.
