I went with GRAVEYARD SHIFT. The
is bigger, the dialogue and setting are a little on the wacky side, and it has Brad Dourif. OUO was a tight, well-made low-budget picture that I very much enjoy...but, given a choice, I'd go the other way.
i liked both but went with of unkown origin
Of Unknown Origin.
OUO isn't ringing a bell. Probably one of those flicks I saw way back when but missed the opening so I didn't know what it was. Then again, maybe I just never saw it at all.
I do like GS a lot but will hold my vote out of fairness.
Peter Weller, as a yuppie executive. Renovated Victorian house in an urban area. Wife and kid go on vacation, big momma rat moves in. Momma rat lets Weller know its her house now by destroying his personal items, fouling the food, killing the cat, and finally attacking Weller. Weller fights back, his effectiveness inversely proportionate to how much of a civilized creature he remains and his personal/professional life remains intact. Baseball bat with embedded nails and trap parts, smashing into a doll house and momma rat.
Ring any bells?
Stll not sure. I'd have to see it to know for sure as that happens with all kinds of flicks for me.
For instance, the plot of Night Of The Creeps was the same feeling as this, "maybe I saw it, kinda sounds fimiliar". When I got a dvdr of it a couple years ago and started watching it, I realized it was the forgotten movie I had loved and watched many times on cable at a friend's house.
No huge ringing bells as of now, and I doubt even looking at stills would help. I'll see if I can rent it somewhere soon and then see if watching it makes the ringing start.
Of Unknown Origin...very cool flick.Too bad Shannon Tweed didnt get naked though..
Graveyard Shift is a guilty pleasure...gotta love the ott accent!
Haven't seen either in a while, but I remember liking Origin a lot.
OF UNKNOWN ORIGIN,kinda neat little film.
OUO certainly had the better video cover (might be UK only), not a fan of that dvd art (which is close to the original poster it seems).
Found this earlier then touched it up since there was a price tag across the rats face, and the one from CDcovers looked like ass.
Of Unknown Origin by a mile. The only things Graveyard Shift had going for it were Brad Dourif (who really needed more screentime) and the end credits song entirely made up of sound bites from the film, which is one of the funniest things I've ever heard.
Of Unknown Origin, because there's some tension. Graveyard Shift has a bunch of guys yelling at each other while cleaning a basement.
One of my favorite movies involving rats is Nightmares. That segment was creepy as hell.
