Question Right at Your Door

Maybe I'm an idiot, maybe it's as simple as it is, but I don't think I get it. (SPOILERS ahoy)

They told him to seal the house, he seals the house. Wife outside is impled to be infected. Lots of 2 player bonding slow scenes later....duh duh duh...his wife is fine and he's been incubating it??? His house is ubersealed up and he gets gassed with the very stuff he's supposed to be already infected with? I don't get it.

Re: Right at Your Door

You've missed a bit. He allowed the infection into his house and then re-sealed himself. I think they find a cure to the infection in small doses (i.e. his wife) but in its incubated state it was just too virile to be released. And so they neutralise it.

That's what I thought at the time anyway. I'm open to being corrected.

Yeah I got that bit.

Her smashing the window and all. However given the sheer amounts on the outside and her being curable - implying she does have it - and him not, it just make my brain go dzzzzzz

Re: Right at Your Door

As the heat of the house is high(from being sealed up and note the guys ask if he has air conditioning) it cultivated the virus into another strain that was extremely deadly, with no cure.
Twas a good film and one that will always leave me uncomfortable, as the irony of him keeping sealed up led to his demise. Also his woman essentially killed him by trying to access the house, as she was going to die. Yet she ended up living and he ended up dying. Very clever film.

Re: Right at Your Door

I saw this silly excuse for a movie on the same day as "28 Weeks Later" and my brain shut down early into it due to overwhelming stupidity and boredom.

As for the "plot twist" they so vigourously pushed as this movie's redeeming feature, it's as clumsy as it is stupid, to paraphrase a certain dark lord.

Sense no make.

Re: Right at Your Door

I have to disagree with you there Iwata.

I think it's a well played dark film, considering the alternative consequences for once. It certainly has made a stay with me, unlike most films that I often forget soon after I see them.

It tests a relationship amongst a heavy crisis, and that is the beauty of it.
If we were to ever be in that position then guareenteed we would could easily be one of the characters in their positions facing the dilemas that they do.

I think it quite a classic to be honest.

Well, like Stephen Fry said, "it's arse-gravy of the worst kind".

Re: Right at Your Door

Don't. You. Dare. Start badmouthing Stephen Fry. People go straight to hell for that, you know.

I liked Right At Your Door, the concept was lean and the execution was fun. Right up until the really ridiculously stupid ending. Durrr, it's a metaphor stupid! Durrrr! Yes, thank you, I get it! Durrrr!

What she said ^ or we'll feed you to:



Cept the metaphor bit, because I can't remember, but especially the Fry (then again nor do I know what One was going on about in the little writting and you make way too much sense with your film ending explanations btw - though again I really can't remember my mind is in revolt against me when it comes to this film).

Re: Right at Your Door

Now we are on to Jewish? Don't let SF see for goodness sake.

Stephen Fry is gay. Arse gravy, I heavily imagine is to do with diarrhea. Stephen Fry may have some experience in this area.

Hey! Iwata started it.

I would recommend watching this film again- with dark shades on. I don't know why, but I felt compelled to say that.

Metaphor??? Stephen Fry and arse-gravy, or something else?

(Jees , see how many times Iwata has me saying both Stephen Fry and arse Gravy in one post. He got his wicked way, god damn)
