I’ve said it before and I’ll probably say it again, being that, since I’m an old guy I tend to repeat myself, but here goes nothing, comedy and horror are very closely related. Now, before you stop reading this because you think you’ve heard it all before…DON’T LEAVE! I just say a movie that really puts it’s tongue in it’s cheek and keeps it there. It’s called Secretary’s Day and it’s a great send up of 80s horror.
By looking at the cover of the DVD and reading the back, you really wouldn’t be sure what you’re in for, but from the opening kill, when the victim takes the time to actually kick a bucket and sign paperwork to ‘buy the farm’, you know that you’re in for something really special. The guys over at RamSteer Films aren’t afraid to look silly, some of the jokes here are obvious, but still made me laugh out loud, from the questioning of an informant to working the crime scene, the jokes come fast and often had me rewinding the DVD to hear the second joke I missed while laughing at the first. Secretary’s Day is as close to the classic movie, Airplane, that I’ve seen, this ranks higher to me than Scary Movie or it’s sequels.
Secretary’s Day is worth the time and effort to see, the only thing I wished was that it had been a little longer, but then that might have ruined the joke…always leave them wanting more, isn’t that what they say? Well, Ramsteer Films has done that, I definitely want more, like what does that ‘J’ stand for? If you’ve seen the movie, you’ll be laughing, otherwise, just forgive me. If you’d like to check this great comedy out for yourself, head over to RamSteer Films and see it for yourself. And, until next time, when I’ll be doing my own spoof of the Scary Movie franchise, where I take a comedy and turn it into a drama, remember that the best movies are bad movies.
