Horror Movie Review #24: Thinner

**It never wore thin on the idea, and that's what makes it so phat. Er, yeah.

Directed By: Tom Holland
Release Date: 25 October 1996
Running Time: 92 minutes
Language: English
Horror Type: Gnarly gypsy curse.
Sex? - Blowjob on wheels.
Gore? - None.

This movie tells us to not drive if you can't handle a blowjob at the same time. See, a gypsy king and his daughter might be passing by, and, you know, you might get a little careless with your concentration. You might run over the gypsy king's daughter and kill her. You will get away with bloody murder because of your legal connections, but then you'll suffer the curse of the gypsy king.

What's going to happen to you is that you will lose three pounds worth of body weight. On a daily basis. Which is super if you're starting off at a morbidly obese 280 pounds, but then, being a curse, it will be so relentless that you will find yourself shockingly a third of your original weight.

Its a gnarly story that gets props and snaps for the concept, pacing, and coherence. Stephen King wrote this perfectly executed story, and that's a surprise because it unnerved us, AND it didn't have the pacing of a hardbound novel.

Momel's Rating: 4/5
