Se7en

What’s in the box? What’s in the box?!” spoken by Brad Pitt in David Fincher’s 1995 American thriller Se7en.

Shame poor Brad. Seven follows two detectives (Morgan Freeman and Brad Pitt) on their quest to hunt and capture a serial killer. The homicidal psychopath (Kevin Spacey, OOPS spoiler) punishes his victims for committing one of the seven deadly sins. Kevin Spacey portrays the demented killer perfectly. His calm and controlled demeanor is unbelievably chilling. Brad Pitt strays away from his pretty boy image while portraying the young, hot-headed detective. And old Morgan is always lovely. Lovelier still, is Gwyneth Paltrow who plays Brad’s sweet and innocent wife who unfortunately meets a gruesome end thanks to Spacey’s sinister games. Seven is the classic homicidal psychopath film and is surely what is responsible for the inspiration for series such as Saw. However, Seven is far superior in every way. The murder scenarios are horrific ESPECIALLY the ‘lust’ victim. Clever and disturbing with a shocking ending. After all, it leaves Brad screaming about boxes and serves as inspiration for today’s Quote of the Day.

Brad is distressed but with good reason

The ‘lust’ murder is all kinds of messed up

The scene you will never forget…

Watch Seven. Let’s sum it up. Brad is good. Spacey is AMAZING. The ‘lust’ and ‘box’ scenes will leave you disturbed and nauseated. And it’s hard not to tear up for poor Gwyneth and Brad. The demented killer succeeds in his intricate and devilish plans. And the film will leave you questioning your humanity. It is that intense. You will never forget Kevin Spacey and his box, I can assure you. Oh, and on a side note, look at this cute animation of the infamous scene! Look at it!

Cute!

    I do feel like the “Look at it” line may have been inspired by a recent giraffe/duck picture!
