Lightning Bug (2005)
Movie Review by The Gravedigger
08.26.05

Lightning Bug (2005) Although this is more in the realm of 'real life psychological horror', the story is about a teenager, Green Graves (Bret Harrison) who wants to become a professional makeup artist as he deals with his mother's (Ashley Laurence of HELLRAISER 1 & 2) new alcoholic, wife-beating husband. And speaking of HELLRAISER, there's this 'in-joke' in a scene where she picks up a copy of FANGORIA for her son-and there's Pinhead on the cover. The biggest problem that this guy faces is that he's stranded in the middle of Alabama and doesn't have any money to move away. A chance for him to show his talents is the annual local haunted house, which is put on by an old farmer in the town-and he's given the big budget of $250 for his materials. One of the best scenes in the movie is how he goes about convincing this guy that he should be the one who does the monsters. It involves him making a latex duplicate of his pet pig and making it look as though an alien is bursting out of it. It's hilarious. There's also a side-story of his relationship with the odd girl in town, Angevin (Laura Prepon of THE 70'S SHOW), who works at the local video store. As the movie progresses, things seem to get worse and worse, culminating in a bad end for one of the family. How the repercussions of this act is dealt with fits perfectly-and makes for a great ending of another character, who indeed deserves it.Direced by Robert Hall.
