Mr. Pickles, which is set to premiere Sunday, Sept. 21 at 11:30 p.m. on Adult Swim, follows a young boy named Tommy and the crazed adventures he has with his dog, Mr. Pickles. The humor of this offbeat show is out there, bringing together subversive scenarios with outrageousness that pushes the envelope.
Catacombs, a horror movie from writer-directors Tomm Coker and Dave Elliot, follows Victoria (Shannyn Sossamon) as she unwittingly attends a rave party in the catacombs beneath the streets of Paris. The actual setting of these catacombs makes for an eerie cinematic environment. The corners are dark and foreboding. People creep out of nowhere. Skulls and bones line the walls. However, the writer-director team and the actors (including Pink as Victoria’s sister) can never utilize the unique surroundings for proper horrific effect. Catacombs features a basic outline, something that could be summed up in a few sentences, inflated to feature-length size.
