All right, folks, we got some cheery happy news for you today if your particular cup of tea involves Eliza Dushku fresh out of the water.? Sadly, there’s no way I can think of to say “she’s soaking wet” without sparking enough double entendres to possibly get me declared not safe for work, but she’s clearly been swimming, and I mean that literally.
Though the early buzz around this film, which deals with a kind of board game powered by voodoo that’s looking to kill some people in the grandest old Witchboard style, is so negative as to redefine the poison pen letter, we’ve definitely been working under a pronounced lack of Dushku lately.? Thus, on a limited level, I welcome Open Graves, and hope it doesn’t turn out to be near as bad as the initial buzz suggests.
Of course, we all know that initial buzz is seldom as correct as we’d like it to be, and that works both ways.? Just because we’re hearing a whole raftload of bad news about this so far doesn’t mean we’re in for a bad time later.
