Unico, AKA Uncut Nightmare Fuel

Unico.  This movie gave me nightmares, and haunted my memories for decades.  I think I saw it on HBO one afternoon when I was home, sick, from school.  For some reason I thought it was a Rainbow Brite movie, so I could never find it when I searched for it.  The image of people being transformed into those horrible dolls…it was too much for me.  Thanks to the wonders of the Internet, I’ve finally found it!  And now that I’ve rewetted it…oh god, it’s even worse than I remembered.  Thanks, Internet.  Fuck you too.

I Have a Competition in Me…

Plainview: Are you an angry man, Henry?
Henry Brands: About what?
Plainview: Are you envious? Do you get envious?
Henry Brands: I don’t think so. No.
Plainview: I have a competition in me. I want no one else to succeed. I hate most people.
Henry Brands: That part of me is gone… working and not succeeding- all my failures has left me… I just don’t… care.
Plainview: Well, if it’s in me, it’s in you. There are times when I look at people and I see nothing worth liking. I want to earn enough money that I can get away from everyone.
Henry Brands: What will you do about your boy?
Plainview: I don’t know. Maybe it will change. Does your sound come back to you? I don’t know. Maybe no one knows that. A doctor might not know that.
Henry Brands: Where is his mother?
Plainview: I don’t want to talk about those things. I see the worst in people. I don’t need to look past seeing them to get all I need. I’ve built my hatreds up over the years, little by little, Henry… to have you here gives me a second breath. I can’t keep doing this on my own with these… people.
