31 Days of Halloween: Movie Review #2

Tonight's "Halloween" movie of choice was Igor. It's an animated movie that I simply love. The movie is about an Igor (voiced by John Cusack) who dreams of being an evil scientist.

Along the way you meet several of his hilarious inventions including the slightly less than intelligent animated brain, named "Brian"(can you guess why?), and a sarcastic immortal bunny named "Scamper" (of all things) who continuously tries to commit suicide throughout the duration of the movie.

When Igor's master meets an unfortunate demise while working on his entry for the Evil Science Fair, Igor finally gets his chance to enter his own invention: A larger than life "destroyer" named Eva, who wouldn't hurt a fly and desperately wants to be an actress.

Adding to the hilarity, the evil scientist Dr. Schadenfreude (who is ironically a "fraud" and voiced by Eddie Izzard!!) and his sidekick spend the length of the movie trying to steal Igor's invention (Eva), and like most fairy tale villains of the day, meet stumbling block upon stumbling block along the way.

If you haven't watched this movie, you definitely should. Now is the perfect time to introduce yourself to a cast of wonderfully "evil" and hilarious cast of characters.

What a great idea! WE thought Igor was pretty fun, too.
