I'm getting soft in my old age

This is the second week in a row that I've gotten freaked out about a movie.

This time, it was Eastern Promises, with Viggo Mortensen as a Russian hitman.
Sure, the MPAA warning said "strong brutal and bloody violence", but so what? I'm a Quentin Tarantino fan, and it doesn't get much bloodier than his stuff.

Wrong.

The graphic violence in this wasn't the "buckets of stage blood spewing out of fake severed limbs" sort of bloody. This was much, MUCH creepier. I won't ruin this movie for anyone by revealing the ending; I didn't make it that far. I had to stop the movie about 25 minutes in, during the freezer scene. Viggo started doing his work, and I nearly lost my supper.

David Cronenberg is one sick fuck.

Maybe, just maybe, I'll try watching it again sometime. For now, I'll stick with a nice clean Bogart movie, something that won't make me lose my appetite for popcorn, salsa and chips, or other finger foods.
