Open Windows Is An Interesting Twist On Horror

Open Windows is a good thriller, if not quite a great one.

From the trailer it felt gimmicky but cool then.

So, Sasha can act? Huh, was wondering about that...

I can't possibly be the only one who noticed a pornstar got a role in a AAA Hollywood film.

Sasha Grey....Sasha Grey...where have I...*looks up*...oh. That Sasha Grey. When the leading lady has previously had at least one penis in some part of her body 99% of the times you've seen her before it's probably going to affect your viewing of the film. Still, good luck to her, hope she goes as far in Hollywood acting as she did in taking it up the butt.

Can't beat The Babadook but then I don't think many horror movies in quite a few years can.

Maniac with Elijah Wood was really cool with the special effects. Is he now stuck doing found footage horror movies? :P

Isn't her first. The Girlfriend Experience (never seen it even if I'm a Soderbergh fanboy) and I Melt With You (awesome movie, she plays a bit part) before this.

Well, you might be, I only noticed a pornstar getting a role in a budget (AA? BBB?) movie, not so much a AAA one.

I mostly wonder whether Elijah saw her for the first time on set and had the sudden and awkward thought of: "Good god, I used to masturbate to you."

Kudos for her of course, a while back I read an interview in a literary magazine. Apparently she's a fine budding author as well and has been wanting more serious acting for a while. Seems like she reached her goal, cool.

Also, Woods is really cool but I'd love to see him cast in the role of bad guy more often. Sure he does a good wide eyed look but he does the crazy look so much better:

*wimpers in fear*

Honestly, my thought is that if Sasha Grey wants to be taken seriously as an actress, she should quit using her porn name and use her real name (Marina Hantzis) or at least something similar.

Even if she turns in an Oscar-winning performance in her next film, it's difficult to forget that her previous films include (amongst many others) "Swallow This 12", "Blow me Sandwich 11", and "Swallow my children". Keeping the same name doesn't help either.

Just like Elijah has a hard time to differentiate himself from his past roles, Sasha Grey tightly bound to her past.

I don't mind her using her pseudonym, if she approaches her roles with half the determination and passion as she did while doing porn, I think she'll do just fine.
