rick r (ag) wrote: John V. Knowles' "Chastity Bites" is a horror comedy that takes the classic 80's idea of fun-time slasher delights. Then mixes that with a fascination for vintage, supernatural idolatry, and upbeat, comedy-camp satire. The film stars Allison Scagliotti, Francia Raisa, Louise Griffiths, Eddy Rioseco, Amy Okuda, Jennifer Gimenez.. "Chastity Bites" is Knowles' directorial debut and my only thought is "why in the h*ll did it take this long?!". The style, feel, and look of the film is that of a seasoned director whose work is effortlessly executed. "Chastity Bites" follows a group of high school students both frienemies and foes, challenged with the typical social hurdles and proclivities, facing a darker sinister force out to build them up just to tear them down-Lady Bathory. Liz Bathor is on an unholy mission to see that the young ladies of the local high school stay pure and chaste. It is a clever story that is energetic, quick witted and funny. The humor is both straight forward cheese ball humor blended with the darker satirical cultural quips that aren't as "surface". It is one of the few films that I have seen in a long while that fully completes the story arch fully with the same intensity and conviction from start to finish. The acting is something that pleasantly surprised me, going into the film I was expecting some fumbling by the actors on the dialog and character interaction and elements meant to create a relatable foundation between the actor and audience. At times it seems those fears were to be met but in almost every scene the cast manages to keep the comedic timing without falling flat, and for the depth of dialog, pop culture referencing and repartee this film carries, it isn't an easy feat for Indie films to pull off. "Chastity Bites" is a modern classic that gives good 80's homage without coming off as cheap or forced. The special effects and soundtrack are timeless and entertaining. The effects remind me of classic 80's horror techniques that never fade, offering good, visual kill scenes, with very minimal CGI. The fact that the film stays closer to the darker side the horror comedy than "spoof" films helps make "Chastity Bites" a film that will be enjoyable time and time again. Plus you can't get a better character than Elizabeth Bathory when dealing with virginity and eternal youth while poking fun at social obsessions and cultural hypocrisies. The soundtrack, both musical and sound effects, create a fun, energy that never holds the film back or feels out of step with Knowles intentions. I really enjoyed this film and think all horror/comedy fans and slasher fans alike should check it out!

Kim W (nl) wrote: Though the plot is fairly contrived this movie was a lot of fun! Looking past the '80's style "one person playing their own twin" silliness, it was a sweet and funny movie with my favorite family style, "chosen." :) Plus trying to guess "whodunit" from the beginning kept it interesting. Brendan Fraser was gorgeous, and Shirley MacLaine was, as always a delight. :)

Katelyn B (ca) wrote: Again, I love Bing Crosby and Bob Hope. And I absolutely love movies where the characters know, realize, and acknowledge that they are in fact, in a movie. This "Road" film has a lot of that sort of stuff in it. This one is probably my favorite of them all. Super fun[ny] and entertaining.

Blake P (ca) wrote: Sweet but not cutesy, whimsical but not quirky, "Ruby Sparks" takes a novice premise and makes it bittersweet yet also easy to surrender to. The premise? A down-on-his-luck writer (Paul Dano) has a dream about a red-headed woman, writes about her, writes his story as if he and his heroine are in a relationship, and suddenly, she appears in his house, as a person. Her name? Ruby Sparks (Zoe Kazan), whose flaws make her all the more endearing. Doesn't it sound precocious and endearing? It is, for about a half-hour. "Ruby Sparks" continually surprised me because, in the long run, I was expecting a run-of-the-mill romantic comedy with an agreeably unique idea at its center. It turns into something much more than that, something witty, intelligent and refreshingly different. Written by Kazan, who also makes for a lovely lead, the film picks apart the Manic Pixie Dream Girl myth - a woman, beautiful and suitable for the male lead, shows up out the blue, fits the moment perfectly, and disappears in a glimmer of hipster dust, leaving her significant lover a little more wiser than helpless. Kazan takes that idea and plays with it, with genuinely entertaining results. Often, the Dream Girl doesn't have much of a purpose besides being flawless and eventually unattainable. But Ruby, despite being a creation of the hero, is much more brainy than we'd expect. She challenges her boyfriend constantly, and by the end of the film, they have lived and breathed through a normal relationship, not one of literary Technicolor. Perhaps the biggest success of the film is how far away it gets from normal rom-com traps. Central couple wise, that is. There are the usual stock characters, but they only add a little bit of sugar to an already rich cake. The real filling is between Ruby and Calvin, who make for a pair that aren't conventional. Their mutual happiness doesn't last long, much of their relationship marred by different wants and needs. Dano and Kazan, who have dated in real life since 2007, translate well onto the screen - in essence, they're a dream couple in the indie world that stink of talent and earnestness. "Ruby Sparks" ends on a happy note that wouldn't be far away from Julia Roberts' latest, but even that comes as a shock. Because in this movie, nothing we've come to expect is really there. There are the charms, the syrup, yes, but there's something more, and that's why "Ruby Sparks" is such an unexpected delight.
