College Newspaper Movie Review a Haiku!

This came my way a few weeks late but it’s no less worthy of a mention: Ryan Mazer, the lifestyles editor for The Crimson White, the student newspaper at the University of Alabama, wrote a movie review of the recent horror film “Friday the 13th” in haiku.  :-)

It’s wonderful work- one of those times when the review is better than the movie.  A portion is below:

Friday the 13th

Its most inspired idea

Was its release date

Most of the film’s cast

Is dead by the end credits

We’re not so lucky

It’s a chore to watch

The only task more grueling —

Writing its review
