Who dares release a movie the weekend after a busy Thanksgiving packed with popular releases? Jason Blum dares.
As far as I’m concerned, Jason Blum has earned a free pass for life when it comes to the benefit of a doubt for movie trailers. No one is going to argue that The Boy Next Door was awful, but I will fight you to defend the notion that it was a meticulously calculated, deliberately awful erotic thriller.
For all of the brow-furrowing shittiness that occurs in the trailer for Incarnate, my hope grows that the people around me will start to understand that this is a subgenre we need more of in our lives. From what I’m gathering here, someone who is a big James Wan fan got high and watched Dreamscape and Inception back-to-back, and thought it would be cool to just…sorta…copy those movies. Aaron Eckhart plays a wheelchair-bound exorcist who doesn’t use any conventional means to get rid of demons; he goes into the host’s mind and helps them escape from their own mental prison. This is either going to be painfully bad, or hilariously terrible.
Oh, please be terrible.
