For those who for whatever reason don’t know (foreign maybe?), “seven minutes in heaven” is a game junior high kids will play where a guy and girl (or the gay way) are randomly selected and forced to make out in a closet for seven minutes.
I played the game once in high school and it was an awful experience. I was at a party and some assholes shoved me into the closet with a female friend of mine. I knew she had a crush on me, but there was this other girl I liked… anyway we started making out, as is the point of the game, then I got overly excited and accidentally clawed up her back really bad. Then later on my dad revealed to me that I was a werewolf – oh wait. That’s Teen Wolf. Sorry. I’ve never played “seven minutes in heaven.” But in a year or so I might get to see another movie about it!
Heat Vision is reporting that JJ Abrams’s company Bad Robot is developing a thriller based on the aforementioned teenage party game – currently titled 7 Minutes In Heaven – from an idea by regular Lost director Jack Bender. Bad Robot is looking for a writer for the project; all that is currently known about the “story” is that it involves two teens entering a closet to play the game, and when they exit seven minutes later… all their friends are dead! Dun dun dunnn! Then Walt shows back up and Hurley says “dude” a few times.
This is a pretty stupid idea for a movie. Though it’s so stupid that I think I kinda like it. Regardless of how this film turns out (if it even makes it past the script stage – I wouldn’t be surprised if all Bender pitched them was the set up) I do like that Abrams is consistently fostering weirdo films. If 7 Minutes in Heaven does make it all the way to production, as long as the kids in it are at least 75% more likable than the hipster wastoids from Cloverfield, I’m sure I can be suckered into seeing it. But so help me, if I get some more annoying hipsters, I’ll start raging out, like back in college when I joined the boxing team, and then I found out I was a werewolf… wait. Teen Wolf Too. Sorry.
When filming “I Love Lucy” producers used tactics to make Ethel, Lucy’s foil, uglier on screen than she was in real life. This was done to put the focus on Lucy. A similar tactic seems to have been used in 2020’s Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn, by not giving any of the supporting actresses … Continue reading — By Sushi-X
