Sometimes I like to watch a movie not because it looks great but because it looks ridiculously terrible. I’m sure you have noticed this by now. You can imagine my happiness when I stumbled upon 11/11/11–an upbeat tale of a devil child and his upcoming birthday which is set to bring about the apocalypse. How could I pass this gem up? I simply couldn’t.
The film is centered around Nat, a young boy who rarely speaks to nice people but loves catching up on the gossip with the voices in his closet. His father recently accepted a position at a University thus moving the whole family (Mom, Dad, and sweet little Nat) to your storybook creepy little town.
Everyone in this town is uber fascinated with young Nat. It’s almost like they’re a cult…oh wait…. You’ve got your classic suburb neighbors: the fitness couple, the ‘religious’ couple, the overly perky cracked out real estate agent, and the crazy cat lady.
Dad hires this Megan Fox wannabe for Nat’s nanny. She does her devilish best to lead Nat into temptation with much success. They’re like…bffs. I didn’t like this chick. However, she did a very good impersonation of Miss Fox.
So Nat’s birthday is looming ever near and things start to get all weird and stuff. The cult people sacrifice Mom’s ob/gyn’s daughter over Mom’s bed while she’s laid up with evil child #2. Nat randomly stabs Mom in her pregnant belly. Mom gouges out her nurse’s eyes (it’s all good, bitch was a cultist<–I learned that one from Skyrim. My man would be so proud!) in desperation to get to Nat…but then decides she’d rather take a bath?
Dad attempts to come to the rescue but being the stereotypical devil child/cult/apocalypse movie, his nonbelieving ass is too late and Nat kills Mom with a toaster. Crazy cat lady tries to kill devil-boy but Dad kills her. He just can’t let go. I mean, let’s be super serial for a moment dude. Your son is a bad seed. He can’t be saved. Cut your losses and run man.
Dad and Nat run to escape the cult gathering around the house but it’s way too late. When the clock strikes 11:11, (yeah…big eye roll here) Nat starts to look like he’s having a bad case of CGI so Dad kills him. Too bad, so sad for poor Dad; he may have just saved the world (for now) but he’s going to the big house now.
I did not enjoy this flick. In fact, I’m amazed I made it through the whole thing. It was too terrible, even for the likes of me. But don’t judge it on my opinion alone! I’ve been told many times that my cinematic taste is, well, questionable. Check it out for yourself, you just might enjoy it.
